Help with Crimson song

Discussion in 'General Instruction [BG]' started by Freaky Fender, Jan 21, 2002.


  1. I was on Elephant Talk (King Crimson website)last night, and playing my Frame By Frame disc. I searched the site and found out some tabs for Elephant Talk (the song itself) and it was stick tabs, now i found a way around this, but here's the tabmain riff:
    D |--------------------------|
    A |--------------------------|
    E |-------14--14-----14--16--|
    B |-------13--13-----13--15--|
    F#|--------------------------|
    C#|--------------------------|
    C |==9==9====================|
    G |--------------7-9---------|
    D |-----------------------7--|
    A |--------------------------|
    E |--------------------------|
    B |--------------------------|
    Now i tap the double stops(is that the word you use for 2 note chords?) oh the A and D string 2 frets higher then transcribed, but my question is how would i tap the bass notes in time, and what position?

    Bass notes are AADEA. Move the treble part to the D and G strings:

    ----11--11-------11----13
    ----10--10-------10----12
    ---------------------12---
    ---5--5----10-12----------

    This is why I don't like tab. Not so easy reading Stick tab for bass, is it?

  4. Damn, I've been playing those intervals as fourths instead of tritones, and a fifth high to boot...I'm gonna hang my head in shame now.
