Pete asks: How about the first riff in Quimby?

e---------------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------------
G---------------------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------
A--3--7--3--------------------5--3--------3--6
E-----------5--3--5--6--6--6--------6--3------

That's just off the top of my head, so who knows? Then you repeat that a bunch, and then it goes like:

e---------------------------------
B---------------------------------
G---------------------------------
D-----5--7--4---------------------
A--7-----------5--3--5--7---------
E--------------------------5--3--5

And then that repeats and stuff, and then I forget the rest. Now yer on your own.



Well, actually I checked one of my old notebooks and yer not on your own. I have some of the rest, but it's in notation, not tab, so I'll convert it for you right now. Just don't blame me if the fingerings suck, I haven't played this stuff in a while. Anyway, this is what I have for the rest of Quimby:

e------------------------------------------------------------------
B--1-4-2-3-1---1---------------------------4-5-6-4-5---4-5-6-4-5---
G------------1---2----2----2-----------4-5-----------5-----------5-
D------------------2----1----0-1-2-5-6-----------------------------
A------------------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------------------

e---------------11-13-11-9-11-9-7-
B--4-5-6-8-9-12-------------------
G---------------------------------
D---------------------------------
A---------------------------------
E---------------------------------

At this point in the notation, I scribbled in my notebook, "aah too fast NOOO!" and that's where it ends. Those last seven notes I have transcribed as a mondo septuplet, but really that was just a guess. One thing's for sure, they're fast.

I also swear I've heard the last part played like this:

e---------------------------------
B--8-9-8-6-8-6-4------------------
G----------------6----------------
D------------------6--------------
A------------------4--------------
E---------------------------------
