My acoustic submission to UG of “Can I Play With Madness.”
Posting it here because judging by my recent luck with tabbing songs unfortunately similar to existing tabs,
…It might get denied.
I chose to make the chords in the chorus a tad “fancy” because of the vocal lines. The “can I play with madness” lines sing an A throughout a B minor chord- the minor 7th. So I just made that tonic chord a m7. It also carries over to the following chord, so I made it a suspended 2 that I guess never really gets resolved in that chord, but still sounds alright. The actual tabs of the song show a brief A5 chord between the B5 and G5, so I guess my A notes in those two chords carry through and connect the two chords. As the tab says, just my interpretation. On that “sus2” chord again, it’s in an inversion simply because I can’t manage to finger “133011” very well.. theoretically, I could use my thumb, but nah. It sounds fine. And on the reason why I wanted a capo on 2… well, I just like playing in that key. So yeah, enjoy!
Chords - They Might Be Giants - They’ll Need A Crane
Again, this was REJECTED from UG.. why, I’ll never know.
That note at the top about the A chord is interesting.. because John is playing all the chords in open positions (like Em - 022000, G - 320003, D - xx0232) obviously excluding Bm as it has no positions without barring a fret.. but I could never hear the A correctly until I realized he’s playing it as a barre chord, or some variation that involves the 5th frets of the B and e strings.
Anyhoo, if any of you play guitar and are down with TMBG, have fun.
Okay for real, my camera is terrible.
Also, I’m rhythmically retarded right now, and in my time away from the webcam, I’ve become camera-shy.. so I lost my cool a couple times..
But yes, this is the jist of the song I was talking about.
It’s definitely my favorite “pretty” progression I’ve ever written.
Two songs from Metalocalypse (although neither are Dethklok songs)
- I Am Toki (Toki’s love song from “Fertilityklok” season 3)
- Ims A God (Skwisgaar’s song from “Fatherklok” season 3)
Neither of them are tab-tabs.. just chords. But still fun!!
OH, and also this!!
A quick acoustic version tab of Detharmonic!!
I called it the “intro” but it literally just repeats all that once the vocals start (harmonically, anyway).
Hope this interests some of you!!
