From: marc@owlnet.rice.edu (Marc Bennett Hirsh)
Subject: "In Your Room" (The Bangles)
Date: Wed, 31 May 1995 14:41:46 -0500 (CDT)

A surprisingly not-bad song from a band that has been neglected
for reasons that I can't figure out. Granted, this song ain't
"Hero Takes A Fall," "Tell Me," or "Following," but definitely
not as bad as I remembered it. Pretty good, in fact. Also, and
most importantly, a lot of fun to play. Notes:

 1) 2 guitars, as in the recording. This song is EASY to do on
     a single guitar, and if you can't figure out how, email
     me.
 2) Guitar 1 is lead and should be flanged (ouch) when playing
     the intro and solo. Guitar 2 is crunchy (oooo...) and is
     usually palm muted. I've tried to indicate this in the
     transcription wherever possible.
 3) This can be a Ramones song if it wants to be. Just
     substitute Guitar 2's palm muted root notes with full
     power chords, and gabba gabba hey, you've got a song
     that Joey, Johnny, et al would be proud to play.
 4) I've transcribed the organ but not the mellotron. Don't
     worry about it.
 5) Why is every line so short? Because I wanted some sort of
     symmetry. 4 bars was too long for each line and 3 would
     have just been too confusing, hence, 2 bars per line.
     Have a problem with it? Use a text editor.
 6) Lyrics may be wrong or just in the wrong place. I'm not
     the one who sings this when I play it, so I can't be
     sure of everything. Mistakes are most likely to be found
     in the prechorus ("I come alive when I'm with you").
 7) The rhythm is, shall we say, lacking in the 2nd bar of
     each prechorus couplet (i.e., the whole note is really a
     bunch of notes). No, I don't know the exact rhythm, but
     arpeggiations seem to work.
 8) Yes, there is a key change after the solo. Deal.

I'm willing to stray from my usual attitude and welcome
corrections.:)
