Hello all,
This is a very simple song, but quite cool, so I thought I'd post it.

BLUEPRINT

by Fugazi


Intro:
(repeat 4 times)
|-------------------------|-------------------------|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|-------------------------|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|-------------------------|-------------------------|
|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-|-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-|
|-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-|-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-|
|-------------------------|-------------------------|-------------------------|

|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|-------------------------|
|-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-|
|-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-|
|-------------------------|

throughout the next part,
 "I'm not playing with you, I'm not playing with you, etc...", the guitar
plays this B chord:
|---
|---
|-4-
|---
|-2-
|---

When the verse gets to "But you still come around...", the guitar plays a
part that notewise is exactly the same as the intro.  Listen to the tape to
get down the rhythm. The words are as follows:

  But you still come around
  In fact I invite you down
  Maybe together
  We can wipe that smile off your face
  Cuz what a difference
  What a difference
  What a difference
  A little difference would make

  We'll draw a blueprint
  It must be easy
  Its just a matter
  of knowing when to say no or yes

At this point, all the other instruments stop, and the guitar plays eigth notes
of that same B chord for 4 measures, then all the other instruments come in
again, and the guitar continues to play the B chord through:

  Frustrating, frustrating, frustrating
  Always waiting for the bigger axe to fall.

Another tacet for the other instruments, this time only 1 measure long, while
the guitar plays an E chord thus:
-------------------|
-------------------|
--/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-|
-------------------|
--/7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|
-------------------|
Then back to the B chord again

  An emotional game
  I can't find my way to play

one more measure of B's, then 4 measures of E's until the next part.
Throughout
this part, simply play bar chords.

E     E           B    C                   D     E
Never mind what's been selling, it's what you're buying
G  A                          G
     And recieving undefiled

Go through this four times, then back to that first B chord for 2 measures,
then
play the previous part again in double time:

E E  B   C     C  D   E   E  G   A   A   A  A   G
  nevermind    nevermind  nevermind  not no way to
play...

Play this four times, then go back to B for 2 measures, and then the 4 measures
of E, then the song ends.

Have fun.  I'd be happy to figure out anything else by this band if
you'd like.
