King Crimson -- Frame by Frame



This is the 7/8 guitar part that Belew plays during the singing:

----------------!----------------!--      ----------------!---------------!
----------2-----!----------2-----!--      ----------2-----!---------2-----!
--2---4-----4---!--2---4-----4---!- etc...--2---4-----4---!--2---4----4---!
----4---4-----4-!----4---4-----4-!--      ----3---3-----3-!----3---3----3-!
----------------!----------------!----    ----------------!---------------!
----------------!----------------!-       ----------------!---------------!


----------------!----------------!----------------!
----------2-----!----------2-----!----------5-----!
--2---4-----4---!--2---4-----4---!--5---7-----7---!  repeat the same pattern
----2---2-----2-!----2---2-----2-!----7---7-----7-!  at the 5th fret.
----------------!----------------!----------------!
----------------!----------------!----------------!

The fripp line on top of the belew 7/8 is basically the same riff in
alternating bars of 6 and 7, but KEEPING THE SAME 8th note value. 
This produces the funky intervals you hear... and you thought it
was a delay! (I know *I* did first time I heard it... 8-)).

------------------|---------------|
------------2-----|----------2----|
--2---4-------4---|--2---4--------|
----2---2-------2-|----2---2---2--|
------------------|---------------|  etc. over the 7/8 above...
------------------|---------------|


The chording during fripps' wacked out picking in the intro and 
between verses seems to be a barred 9th chord, dropping the 
unison on the G string to the major 7th, ie

--2-----2--2----|
--2-----2--2----|
--4-----3--4----|
--4-----4--4----|
--2-----2--2----|
--2-----2--2----|

with appropriate whammy bar antics for the first chord, then up to a
Dsus2 (5th & 7th fretts) then again another 3rd.  

Oh yeah, when the 13/8 and 7/8 fall back together, they play for
about 3 bars both in 7 *then* drop the bass note as noted above.

Some one is yet to figure out the "wacked out fripp part".

Excellent work on the 13/8 part, but I found a small error in the
second change of the 7/8 part: Instead of the second note in each 
measure moving down another half step, the first note moves down a 
half step.  I've also made some headway into the "Wacked out Fripp part."

However, it's based on the following:

------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
-----5-7-5-------5-7-5-------5-7-5--------------
-5-8-------8-5-8-------8-5-8-------8------------  etc
------------------------------------------------

Which modulates up to the 7th fret, then 10th, then 11th. The rhythm
is strange, I can't pin down if it's sextuplets, 6 against 4, or what.
It seems like he adds some notes sometimes to make things fit in.
