verse lick

Decided Id share the verse lick with you guys. Just figured it out last night. Let me know if anything looks wrong. Also can someone help out with the chorus licks?

E|-----------------------------------------------
B|-----------------------------------------------
G|----------4---------------------------4--------
D|-------------5--------5p3----------------5-----
A|-----4h5-------------------5-----4h5-----------
E|--3---------------------------3----------------

E|------------------------------------
B|------------------------------------
G|------------------------------------
D|------------------------------------
A|--4h5--3h4--1h2---------------------
E|-----------------3--3--1h3--1h3-----

During the "Shave my head" part you could do this

E|------------------
B|------------------
G|--5b7--5p3--------
D|------------5-----
A|------------------
E|------------------

For the chorus i have just a small bit figured out

E|-------------------------------
B|-------------------------------
G|-------------------------------
D|--------3h4h5--------3h4h5-----
A|-------------------------------
E|--3--3---------3--3------------

Then after the 2nd time he plays somethin lower like

E|------------------
B|------------------
G|------------------
D|------------------
A|--------3h4h5-----
E|--3--3------------


Maybe im not sure...Thats where I could use some help

Well enjoy

Edit: almost forgot the little run during the chorus

E|--------------------------
B|--------------------------
G|--------------------------
D|--5--3--------------------
A|--------5--4--3-----------
E|-----------------6--3-----

Youll hear this a bunch in the chorus. He plays it pretty quick. This may be a little off. Not sure.

After screwing around with it for a few I have these chords for the "Tear this old building down" line (which I always sang as whole, not old...haha)

Bdim7 - Cm7b5 - C#dim7 - D9 - G
Tear --- This old - Build - ing down

E|------------------------
B|--3---4---5---5---3---
G|--1---3---3---5---4---
D|--3---4---5---4---5---
A|--2---3---4---5---5---
E|------------------------

Not sure if that's right but it sounds okay. I think you could get away with it. It's a simple B-C-C#-D climb back to the I (G). It might be all Xdim7. I can't really tell to be honest. Anyhow, let me know if you have something different there.

For the 'tear this whole building down' part I see and hear Jer doing this in this vid - a descending line D C A# A G (on the E string):

note: tried to cue the vid to 2:52 - that's where the 'jer look' is

Code: Select all

(/) Slide Up  (\) Slide Down  (h) Hammer On  (p) Pull Off  (b) Bend (r) Release (v) Vibrato

    G     C  C#dim  D    G

E|--10----8----6----5----3--
B|--8-----8----8----7----3--
G|--7-----9----9---(7)---4--
D|------------------
A|------------------
E|------------------

A couple of looks at bobby in the middle and end as well - whatever he's up to doesn't look very complicated! I do like your line btw flavaham :smile:





Not playing here for me - adding w/o the cue - go to 2:52

btw - I realize I'm calling that chord a C#dim w/o a C# in it! Was tempted to call it a C7 but C doesn't work to my ears - jer seems to be playing the notes I note - a fuller chord sounds fine when adding the C# - thus why I called it that - of course as a dim chord I guess you could use any note in the chord as the name - maybe A# or Bb dim? Dunno - in the context of the key of G what should it be? Any takers?

By the way flavaham - your line works fine with my chords - just switch up my voicing a bit

Bill, I think its actually closer to a D#7 chord. Bar chord at the 6th fret. So, run would be G-->C-->D#7-->D-->G
