Hello and welcome. I have transcribed in tablature the entire Adventures In A Yorkshire Landscape live version from the Live In The Air Age album. You can find in the Archive/Guitar TAB section of this website along with virtually all of the Be Bop Deluxe canon, all tabbed by myself with varying degrees of detail.
There are a few versions of this song as you know, so if you're thinking of another one I could liaise with you and transcribe any differences in the performance - something I've been putting off for ages, and concentrating on transcribing his newer material.
I guess this a good time to ask if there are any other requests from Dreamsville members for songs that they would like me to tab for them, let me know guys.
Thanks Tc I'll give it a look and a listen. I was after the studio version but this is very helpful. I'll start listening to them both. When I feel I'm happy with it I'll post you some Tablature to cross check, perhaps a section at a time rather than the whole piece.
Right then where's me Strat.
Yeah? 😮😮😀😘😘...hmmm. I have only played stuff I "wrote" or GIMProvised,
but just now thought it would be spiffy as Spandex to play even some parts of the EBow work on Sleepcycle. I would mut(il)ate it into other dimensions of sound 😁
I'll take a look at that song for you soon. I don't have an EBow but of course it will be modes on one string - I'm guessing!
Take a look here ...
Hey, TwilightCapers, thanks for asking.
If you can work out what the main chords are on Bill's funkiest ever b-side from the early 80's, "Flesh", I would be hugely grateful. Full TAB is unnecessary, I just want to try and copy those slicing, razor-sharp sounds and - let's face it - there are so few people who know the track at all. Such a shame!
That song is E - C#7#9 - B7#9 - D6/9.
E (022100) - C#7#9 (x4345x) - B7#9 (x2123x) - D6/9 (x54450)
The chorus has a Gb5 bassline (G - Db - G) but muted guitar chops.
There are some higher parts during the verses, first two (or three) strings on the 12th - 9th - 7th - 10th frets (E - C#m - Bm - D)
I think the ending goes down to Bb7#9 (x1012X) seems weird, not sure if the guitar is in an altered tuning. Maybe it's (6566xx) grip instead?
The 7#9 chord is a bit of a jazz chord, sometimes called the Hendrix chord but Kenny Burrell used it a lot on his wonderful Midnight Blue album back in 1963 not to mention All Blues by Miles c.1959.
A very funky tune indeed, more about feel and rhythm than guitar solos so perhaps a full tab isn't necessary this time. Thanks for the request it was fun hearing that one again.
@Twilightcapers Gulp, that was quick! Thanks, TC.
I think that might take me a little while to get my fingers round, but it's there for me to conquer now. Just great!
