Birds of a Feather (Phish)
Transcribed by Mike Warrington - festeezio@yahoo.com


Authors Notes: 
-To play this exact, I think you need a 5-string.
-I figured this out from the studio version on "Ghost", live versions vary greatly
-The phrasing varies throughout the song, but I see this as a good blueprint to work off of
-A "P" indicates a popped note
-A ( ) indicatea ghost note (a muted or implied note)


(No Bass during Intro hits)

Opening Groove - Play 4x 

G-------------------------
D-------------------------
A-3-------------(1)-------
E-------1-1-2-3-----------
B---4-4-------------------
  

Verses 

  P      P    P     P     P     P   P       
G-5------3----2-----5-----3-----2-------------
D-----------------------------------3---------
A---3-----------------3-------------------(1)-
E-----------1---2-3---------------1---2-3-----
B-----4-----------------4---(4)---------------


Choruses 
Basically the same as the verses, but he stops 
the slap feel sometimes, note the alterations with the C#

  P     P   P     P                       P                   
G-5-----3---2-----5-----------------------2----------------------
D----------------------------------------------------------------
A---3---------------3---------------3-----------(1)-3-4----------
E---------1---2-3---------(1)-1-2-3-----1---2-3---------1-1-2-3--
B-----4---------------4-3-------------4--------------------------



Bridge #1
This part rolls on G octaves, with little nuances and ad-libs  
Here is one way to interpret it.  
                                      Etc.=>
G---------(0)------(0)-------------------(0)-
D---5---5--------5-------------5------17-----
A--------------------------------------------
E-3---3------3-3-------3-(3)-3---3>15--------
B--------------------------------------------


Guitar Solo - 8x
The intro groove is played throughout

G-------------------------
D-------------------------
A-3-------------(1)-------
E-------1-1-2-3-----------
B---4-4-------------------



Outro / Bridge #2
First 4x mirrors the 1st bridge (sort of), then he throws in some typical weirdness!
I fool around with the octaves and the open G string just to spice it up

G---------(0)------(0)-------------------(0)-
D---5---5--------5-------------5------17-----
A--------------------------------------------
E-3---3------3-3-------3-(3)-3---3>15--------
B--------------------------------------------

Then he adds this little alteration

G---------------------------------------------
D---5-----------5---5-------------5---5-------
A-----5-6-7-----------5-6-7-------------5-6-7-
E-3---------3-3---3---------(1)-3---3---------
B---------------------------------------------
