Awesome job dude. I haven't played through all your transcriptions yet, but I disagree with the C- that you notated in "bed of nails ll"

What I hear, and see him playing in the vimeo video is Cmaj7 voiced 1 5 7 3 (c g b e) then when he plays the A-7 you can hear and see that he will sometimes add in a C root after letting the A-7 ring out a bit (as I think you noted in your transcription) What do you think/hear?

"Supraharmony"

Guitar tuning = drop D

Here's how I play the opening melody. I believe on the record one guitar plays the melody while another is playing a chord behind it. It would seem this would be the case as you can hear the separation when the melody is repeated again up an octave. Also, during the chorus the other guitar is playing fuller chords instead of 5ths, and guitar 2 may or may not be in drop D. Anyway I love this song and don't think it gets enough attention, so here's my way of playing it on one geeeeetar.

E
B
G--------1--2
D---4---------3----3-3-3-3-3-3
A-------------------0-0-0-0-0-0
D-4---4------------4-4-4-4-4-4

{knowing and knowing and on and on}

There you go. I love transcribing but hate "tabbing" stuff, for more than one reason (not the least of which is lack of information, notably, rhythm!!!). I might start writing these out and then scanning them simply because the times I've posted any tab on the net it always comes out fucked up rhythmically on forums because I cant just write the chords and use a bunch of spaces, the chords end up right next to each other hence me using - to space them. I thought this was because I was posting off a blackberry but it happens on another forum and when I post from my laptop too.
Just listen to the recording and it should be easy to get this down.

IMPORTANT: the names of the chords that are 5ths (the so called power chord) are in relation to the frets on a guitar, NOT what the actual chords are due to the low E being dropped down. The only exception to this is when you see D5, just play the open D (that you have dropped down from E),
A and D strings.


Does anyone have that recording of "bed of nails" that Emil played on a radio interview? It was on here at some point but appears to be deleted. I know it's on the re-release of "...warm coals" and it's great, but there was some nice stuff on the solo acoustic version I wanna transcribe.

I'd be down for that, although I'm not certain how much I can contribute. I just fiddle around, no real theoretical training, but I'll do my best.

I had a bit of Dont Boil Me done, but in a non-standard tuning. I'll have to try and figure it out again.
