hello
can anyone tab out the second verse riff in scarlet begonias.
the riff after "it could be an illusion but i might as well try"

also the verse riff posted here for after "as i was walking ... square" seems too short and doesn't sound right, does anyone else have other options.

thanks for any help
peace always :roll:

First 'it could be an illusion' is the first verse. 'Not like other girls' is the second. I dunno what you mean about the riff, isn't just a variation of the intro? Myself I just play a 4 string B and slide it up from the 6th fret a couple of times. As far as the mid verse riff I play it so:

-----------------------
-----------------------
-----------------------
------------6---9----7-
----6h7p6-9------------
--7--------------------

This is slightly different from what is posted on the site, I think the B on the 9th is different, but it works with the feel I play the song. Hope this is something of a help.

Never wrote anything out in tab before(it's all upstairs) but I've long played something like this:


------7--------------7--------------------------
------7---------7----7----7-----10-----9-------------
-----------7h8-----------------------------------
--9---------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------



------7--------------7-----------------------------
------7---------7----7----7-----10-------------------
-----------7h8--------------------------------------
--9------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------------


I've also done something in a similar neighborhood to hesgone95:



-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------
------9-----------6----9--------7---6---------------
-----------6h7h9-----------9-------------------------
--7---------------------------------------------


----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------
------9-----------6----9--------7-----------------
-----------6h7h9-----------9------------------------
--7--------------------------------------------

which is really the same as my first suggestion, just lower. I hope it all translates.
