Does anyone have an accurate tab for this song? I bought "O" on Saturday and it's the best album I've heard this year by far.


I got a tab earlier from www.eskimofriends.com (well duh... :p) which lists the first four chords as G, G/F, Em, C with a capo on the sixth. This sounds right, but the tab doesn't allow for the change in the first verse, or for the chorus.


Does anyone have a full tab, by any chance? It's be much appreciated.


Oh yeah, hi, btw :)

Hi Paranoid, I'm currently working on getting together accurate Damien tabs. I mean accurate literally, exactly as Damien plays them, since all the tabs out there vary between close and mind-bogglingly wrong.
If I get a bunch finished that I can say are correct without hesitation, I'll release them. At the moment I haven't tackled Amie, sorry. Actually I should have said that at the start and skipped you the babbling.

If anyone is interested, I finally foudn someone to work out a nice sounding .crd file for me...


The jist of which is:


Capo 2nd


Intro and Verses:

C, G/B, Am, F
Dm, Am, F, G (Bridge)

Chorus:

Am, F, G, C
F, Em, Dm, G...... then back to C to start again.



:) It's a lovely song and it sounds good to me :)





Thanks for the welcome :p

Thanks I was struggling to find a good tab out there too.

Angela 10-13-2003 05:41 PM

I spent 25 bucks on the legacy version its nice though i like it especially be my husband nice opener what did ya think Angela

Pete 10-14-2003 04:24 AM

im not angela but i spent 17quid on that buckley cd, worth evry penny. always good for him to play some dylan too. [img]smileys/smiley1.gif[/img]

Angela 10-14-2003 09:57 AM

Be My Husband alone is worth the money. And the Nusrat cover! [img]smileys/smiley20.gif[/img] Nice release. That's the way it should be done. I suspect we can thank Berkowitz for that one, as he heads up Sony's Legacy department.

I only wish the DVD were longer! I've been waiting to get the missing five second footage of TWYLD for a year now (footage was first used in the BBC doc last year), but that's exatcly what we got: five more seconds.[img]smileys/smiley6.gif[/img]

paranoid 10-14-2003 01:59 PM



What's all this Legacy stuff? [img]smileys/smiley24.gif[/img]

We are talking about the Jeff Buckley: "Life at Sin-e Legacy Edition" release. Thom has the Live at Sin-e art work as his avatar.

Thom 10-14-2003 03:55 PM

lol well noticed Angela and all jeff buckley stuff is worth every penny!

Thanks for the welcome :p


P.






that's pretty close to what I play...a few notes


for the F always leave the two E strings open


for the G in the verse slide up from F using the same chord shape.


for the chorus I play:


Am, F, G, C , G/B
Dm, Am, Dm, F, slide into->G


can't guarentee that it's 100% accurate...

well, you had to stick an 'F' in there, didn't you?


I just can't bring my finger to hold all 6 strings... [img]smileys/smiley19.gif[/img]

paranoid 10-14-2003 08:52 PM



Sorry [img]smileys/smiley19.gif[/img][img]smileys/smiley17.gif[/img]But keep trying! It took me AGES to get the hang of barre.. I'm sure if you keep trying, you'll get it eventually. And it'll be worth it when you play this song... [img]smileys/smiley16.gif[/img]

you don't need to hold the barre in Amie for the F. play it as I've said above with your first finger on the first fret, second string and leave the two E strings open. I'm fairly certain that's the Damo plays the F on this song.



Thom 10-15-2003 04:16 PM

I'm jealous Angela. I wish i had more Jeff Buckley Stuff but I'm skint! I really want the dvd's though so thats where the rest of my money is going as soon as i get some!

the live in chicago is excellent. Dream Brother live...you can't top it..[img]smileys/smiley16.gif[/img]

Thom 10-15-2003 05:10 PM

Cool it sounds really good. How long is it?

Angela 10-15-2003 05:25 PM

Oh, the Chicago DVD is a must! It's the whole show, Thom! The first time I got it I must have watched it three times in a row!

Do you have broadband by any chance, Thom? You could download some.

Thom 10-16-2003 02:11 PM

No, unfortunetly i dont have broadband but damn i wish i had some money now to buy the dvd. That's rocking that the whole show is on it.

Angela 10-16-2003 05:13 PM

You can get it for $10 at eBay! Or you could buy the VHS version which is much cheaper. If all fails, put it on your X-Mas wish list [img]smileys/smiley4.gif[/img]

Thom 10-17-2003 01:53 PM

Yay! nice one Angela thanks

Catherine 10-17-2003 07:40 PM



I discovered Damien a few weeks ago and I can't stop listening to him since.. I have a tablature website and I plan to tab a few of his songs in the future. You can visit my site here www3.sympatico.ca/g403z


The only song I tabbed so far is Amie.. It's not on the site yet, so here's a preview:) I'm not sure if it'll line up though..


Amie
transcribed by Catherine Gagné


Capo 7th fret


I have several live versions of this song and he does a lot of hammer-ons and changes to the chords. I transcribed what I think sounds best when played on a solo acoustic.


Verses

Nothing unusual, nothing strange
Close to nothing at all
The same old scenario, the same old rain
And there's no explosions here


Then something unusual, something strange
Comes from nothing at all
I saw a spaceship fly by your window
Did you see it disappear?


Amie come sit on my wall
And read me the story of O
And tell it like you still believe
That the end of the century
Brings a change for you and me


Nothing unusual, nothing's changed
Just a little older that's all
You know when you've found it,
There's something I've learned
'Cause you feel it when they take it away


Something unusual, something strange
Comes from nothing at all
But I'm not a miracle
And you're not a saint
Just another soldier
On the road to nowhere


Amie come sit on my wall
And read me the story of O
And tell it like you still believe
That the end of the century
Brings a change for you and me


And Amie come sit on my wall
And read me the story of O
And tell it like you still believe
That the end of the century
Brings a change for you and me
