Question Is anyone up for trying to tab out 'Girl Least Likely'? I'm willing to give it a try. the more who work on it the better! Any takers?

it does sound fab - and also reasonably close to what neil is playing, which can't be a bad thing! i have my copy of the album now (obviously). this week, I aim to finish my dissertation, so expect to see large amounts of the album appear soon as i do that instead (realism).

( Smile must take advantage of sponge's apparent current absence, and tab the whole album quick, thus showing myself to be better than him *snigger*)

I've been playing around and I think I've got the main guitar part for Freedom Road. Please adapt as you see fit:

E-|-----------------------------------|
B-|-10-------------------------------|
G-|-------------------------9--------|
D-|---------11------9---------------|
A-|-----0-------0-------0-------0---|
E-|-----------------------------------|

I've just been mucking about with CHBB and I think the rhythm guitar on the verse goes like this:

Code:

E---0------0------0------0------0------3------0------0--
B---5------7------5------7------7------3------5------5--
G---6------7------6------7------7------4------6------5--
D---7------5------7------5------7------0------7------5--
A---0------0------0------0------0------0------0------0--
E---X------X------X------X------X------X------X------X--

The guitar solo might be done on an electric 12-string, which explains the Gibson 335-ish thing NH looks like he was playing in the session piccies (or is that just a blurred headstock?). It doesn't sound like a Rickenbacker on the track, so I'm not sure what he's using.

Is that what makes it sound like a harpsichord doubling the solo?

Yeah - it's the very slight delay between the two strings being plucked. Rickenbackers are strung so on the downstrum you hit the higher octave string first (as opposed to normal 12-strings where you hit the lower octave string first). It's what gives them that distinctive twang.

Ah, well its forgiveable that the Des&Mel cameramen zoomed in on the harpsichord during the guitar solo. Smile

*listens again on headphones with volume turned right up*

You may be right - it does sound like there might be something else in there. What guitars were NH and other bloke playing on Des & Mel?

Well as far as I could tell, it was largely a backing track. There was nobody on leccy guitar (Neilio not playing anything), just that bald bloke playing acoustic. There was a woman playing (supposedly) the harpsichord.

sponge, you're a true gentleman. i was meaning to ask about such things, but now you've saved me the bother. are you happy for me to upload 'tweaked' versions (in which i add the rhythm count, and so on, without changing what you've actually written, because you always do it better than me anyway?)

thank 'ee

(I'll play with your billy bird chords and see what i think - i'm guessing you're absolutely right, and the fact that my 5th fret C-chord is deemed correct by you is good enough for me).

Thank you Jon, those are great! It's really nice to be able to play such great songs Smile

(And I think Benny means "GIRL LEAST LIKLEY" on the word doc).

I've been having a little go at 'WotB' myself, but I've got a feeling it may turn out to be this year's 'Sweden'...

this 'year'? rather a short timespan, wouldn't you say?

i'm pretty determined to get something sorted by tomorrow - have you got anything at all written down yet? if you have, and you fancied e-mailing it to me... well two heads, and so on...

It's okay - you crack on. Every time I sit down with it playing, I end up just listening to it. If I get motivated I'll email whatever I've done across to you.
