DAY OF THE COW

"YOU CAN JUMP ALL YOU WANT..."

I transcribed and posted this already in July but here it is again. It's
that motif from "The Day Of The Cow Pt.1" that goes along with the lyric
line "...you can jump all you want but ownership of the planet soon reverts
to the cow...". There exists a guitar tab on Claude's website which, IIRC,
has a note or two that don't stem with my transcription. Here's how I hear
it:


|-----------------------------------------------14-----|
|--11--13--15-------------------12--16-----------|
|-------------------13--11--15----------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------|


|--16-------------------------------15--18---15---------------|
|-------------------------13--17--------------------16----------|
|--------14--12--16--------------------------------------16---|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

Try it an octave lower, if only to give your fingers a good stretch! The
following three bass notes leading into an F-major based chord are C#, C
and E. Played along to the lyric line "...the stately cow...". For those of
you interested, you can do the harmonic analysis using the tabs from
Claude's site with this tidbit of information. Right now, I'm feeling too
lazy... :-P
