You're So Pretty - We're So Pretty

This is the opening track on Wonderland. It is mainly made up of
over-dubs and samples which I have tried to transcribe here. It'll
sound a little weird if you're playing on your own because the bass,
keyboards and drums each play a big part, but if you're in a band or
just jamming to the CD it sounds pretty good:

Chords:	    E A  D  G  B  E
	Gm (x x  5  3  3  3)
	Bb (x x  8  7  6  6)
	Dm (x x 12 10 10 10)


The Song starts off with a weird little sample loop. This is it
for Guitar:-

Riff A
E|-----3-----3--|-----3-----3--------3|
B|-----3-----3--|-----3-----3------3--|
G|-----3-----3--|-----3-----3----3----|
D|--5-----5-----|--5-----5-----5------|
A|--------------|---------------------|
E|--------------|---------------------|

Intro
Riff A x2

Verse 1 (Play chords with same picking pattern as riff A)
Gm
Show me the diamonds, Show me the gold,
Gm
Call me the answer, oh yeah!
Gm
Call me anywhere, I don't have a care - This is my world.
Gm	  Bb		     Dm
You're so pretty -  We're so pretty.


This is the little lick played after the first chorus. It sounds
like an acoustic and appears to be double tracked:

Riff B
E|------------|---------------|
B|------------|---------------|
G|------------|---------------|
D|------------|---------------|
A|----------1-|----------1----|
E|--1h3--3----|--1h3--3----3--|


A more distorted electric sound then plays this in the left channel:

Riff C
E|----------------|
B|--------6\5---5-|
G|------3-----3---|
D|--3h5-----------|
A|----------------|
E|----------------|

This continues repeating through the 2nd verse up until "Talkin' to
the devil". It is joined again by riff A when the singing starts.

Verse 2
Gm
Show me th silver, show me the gold,
Gm
You're takin' my name -- 'Angel'
Gm
Don't dissapoint me, I see you smilin'
Gm
Tie up my elbows - No joke.
Gm
Talkin' to the Devil, Talkin to the lord, For one sweet touch.
Gm
Talkin' me to heaven, Talkin' me to hell, For your sweet touch.
Gm	  Bb		   Dm
You're so pretty, We're so pretty

E|------------|-----------------------|		NB 6b5p3 means pre-bend
B|------------|-----------------------|		 fret 5 to the sound of
G|--6b5p3-----|--6b5p3----------------|		 fret 6 (C to C#), hit
D|---------5--|---------5-------------|		 the note, release the
A|------------|--------(-------1---)--|		 bend then pull-off to
E|------------|--------(1h3--3---3-)--|		 fret 3.

 ^These fills are double-tracked again, but this time they're on
electrics. The original double-tracked acoustics play the notes
in brackets.

Gm	  Bb		 Dm
You're so pretty, Oh! So pretty.

E|----------------------|-----------------------|------------|
B|----------------------|-----------------------|------------|
G|--6b5p3---------------|--6b5p3----------------|-[6b5p3---]-|
D|---------5------------|---------5-------------|-[------5-]-|
A|--------(--------1-)--|--------(-------1---)--|------------|
E|--------(1h3--3----)--|--------(1h3--3---3-)--|------------|

The lick is repeated again (square brackets) this time with a different
more distant sounding electric. It's in the left channel with less
distorion and more mid-treble.

Break

Show me the money, Show me the money, Baby.
					x4

Under the singing during the break this is played:

Riff D
E|--------|--------|
B|--------|--------|
G|--5--5--|--5--5--|
D|--O--O--|--O--O--|
A|--------|--------|
E|--------|--------|

At the end Riff C is played.

If you're lost, we're now up to CD time 2:10 - the start of the
3rd chorus.

Gm	  Bb		 Dm
You're so pretty, Oh! So pretty,
Gm	  Bb		   Dm
You're so pretty, We're so pretty.

Over the third chorus this is played:

Riff E
E|--6/8-8-8-x-8-x-8x-8-x-8-x-|
B|---------------------------|
G|---------------------------|	  This repeats up until
D|---------------------------|	  the start of Verse 3.
A|---------------------------|
E|---------------------------|

At the end of each line of the third chorus this is played:

Riff F
E|------------|------------|
B|------------|------------|
G|--6b5p3-----|--6b5p3-----|
D|---------5--|---------5--|
A|------------|------------|
E|------------|------------|

For the final verse the sample loop (Riff A) changes slightly:
E|-------3-------3--|-------3-------3-----|
B|-------3-------3--|-------3-------3-----|
G|-------3-------3--|-------3-------3-----|
D|--3h5-----3h5-----|--3h5-----3h5--------|
A|------------------|---------------------|
E|------------------|---------------------|

Verse 3
Gm
All the hours, askin' questions,
Gm
Couldn't fit in, Wastin' time,
Gm (Riff C starts repeating again here)
Keep comin' back, for a little more,
Gm
I see you smilin',  woo!
Gm
Feed me to the lions, I'll throw you to the floor, for one sweet touch,
Gm
Diamonds in the rain, will always be the same, where there's a rainbow.
Gm	  Bb		   Dm
You're so pretty, We're so pretty. (Riff E)
Gm	  Bb		 Dm
You're so pretty, Oh! So pretty. (Riff E)


Break

Riff C
Show me the money, show me the money, baby.
Riff C
Show me the money, show me the money, baby.
Riff E
Show me the money, show me the money, baby.
Riff E
Show me the money, show me the money, baby.


Outro

While Tim Burgess is going "Oo-oo-oo-oh!" riffs C & D are
played underneath.
For the final part, it's just riff D on it's own as the song
fades out.


I hope you enjoyed that. It's pretty in depth stuff and I might have
a go at transcribing the keyboard parts at some point in the distant
future. If anybody else gets there first e-mail me the tab  . .
