Default 9 Crimes Sheet Music

Hello there,

After finishing Accidental Babies I couldn't help but push on and do 9 Crimes too. I remember when I first listened to Damien Rice I liked the music, it was delicate and beautiful, but the lyrics didn't seem to relate directly to me, but now a lot of it seems so true to life, mainly because of things that happened in my life.

Anyway,

9 crimes - Page 1/2
9 crimes - Page 2/2

Any feedback on either of my scores would be appreciated.

Steve

This is really kind of you to do. I know it takes a great deal of time to transcribe music. But I'm afraid the links are down Would it be possible to export them to pdf? If so i'll host them for you as it'll be a bit more stable.

Ok, I just converted the images to single pdf's, one for each song; I haven't converted to .pdf before so I hope it's been done correctly, should I email these to you? Or do you have some details where I can upload them to?

You could upload it to rapidshare.com or some other place like megaupload.. These are all free. It wpuld be really kind if you could upload the Accidental Babies sheet at the same time.. I've been looking for these for days and I would love you forever

Well until a better solution is available:

Accidental Babies

9 Crimes

Appologies, I'll have to moan at my webhost, I don't pay them good money to be down half the time .

Ooh... you did a wonderful job. It's painstaking to transcribe music notation - which is why I never do it. I just end up playing my own variations of the arpeggios.

Well, since you asked, I'd love to see The Animals Were Gone...

And I definitely second the piano version of Rootless Tree idea!

Not that I'm promising to tab it, I'm just interested in hearing it - do you know where I can get the piano version from?

That is one of my favourite songs on the album, I just find it quite sad and am not sure how much I fancy having to listen to it on loop while I tab it out, I might end up in some sort of depression. Plus it has three guitars (or two with chorus) right from the offset so that makes things a lot trickier to tab, maybe I'll just have a go at getting the main guitar part, I play along with it at the moment on the guitar but more just a bit of fun rather than anything even half accurate.

If you are stuck finding anything at all for it then the absolute shoddy basics are:

G, G, C, C->C/B, Am, Am, G, G,G/F#, Em, Em, Am, Am, B5, B5

Which you just pick in an appegio style, oh, and the B5 is definatlely wrong, heh, hmm, these are the sort of 'dodgy tabs' that I normally like to avoid, but yea it works roughly:

animals gone wrong

No need to comment on the nastyness of my toneless singing, just to give you an idea of the guitar :P.

Yeah, I totally understand - thanks for the arpeggio's though! I can read sheet music just fine, but coming up with it on my own is always hell.

And your singing is no where near toneless! Or maybe I'm just a sucker for British accents?

just if you have it, not if you have to go and transcribe it, thats far too much work.

I've actually created a new thread for this, but I thought I'd post here too just to keep things neat. I've completed a piano transcription of rootless tree from the live session you mentioned. I've also included the vocal melody and lyrics:

rootless tree live@kcrw - piano transcription

I hope it's accurate; when I was looking up the lyrics I found different variations on different sites, most of which didn't seem too accurate, so I've included what I believe to be right, but I'm more than happy to make any corrections should you spot any.

Enjoy,

Steve

Have you listened to the recording of Accidental Babies from KCRW? If I'm not very mistaken, it's completely different.. Well, not completely, but there are just a lot of things added everywhere!

Haven't really listened to it. My transcription was for the album version though.
