Song - Divided Sky

Album - The White Tape

Tabbed by: Pauly S

Intro theme:

|: A   D9/A  (4 times)   C/A   A(9)  :|   C/A  E     (A) "Ahh... Divided sky, the wind..."

The chords are played like this:

  A  D9/A  C/A  E
E--0---12----0-----------
B--5---10----8---12------
G--6---11----9---13------
D--7---12---10---14------
A--0---0-----0----0------
E------------------------

This is followed by a few measures of really eclectic Palindrome section, for which I
thank Neil Berkman.

DR   Downward rake: don't alternate pick - play all notes in a single downward motion

UR   Upward rake

I've also included the position I play each section in under the tab - the number
indicates where I put my index finger for each part.

(Starts at 1:17 on the CD)

This marks the halfway point of the palindrome (at 1:25).

                         UR-----                       P        P

            12        11                       10

                                     UR-----            UR-----

  12                              11                 10


At this point (1:33) the first half of the palindrome is played again.

The palindrome portion ends with 6 notes that lead into some relatively
straightforward chords; no timing information is shown below, you have to listen
to the song to see where the changes are.

The 6 notes are G A B G# A# C, and the chords are:

|: A A/C# G/D G/B A/C# D/A G/B A :| D9

E---------------------------------------------
B----14--10------12---8-----10--7------8---5--
G----14---9------12---7------9--7------7---6--
D----14--11------12---9-----11--7------9---7--
A----(0)--------(10)------------0----------0--
E--------(9)----(10)-(7)----(9)-------(7)-----

The D9 here is played with an open E string, like this:
   D9
E:--0-
B:--3-
G:--2-
D:--0-
A:----

The rhythm of this next section is real tricky, but it still flows very smoothly. Its a 
collection of 4/4 (8/8) and 7/8 bars, but then Trey fits some 3/4 bars into it - see below.
( 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 - 1 2 3 4 5 6 7)  6x   (1+2+3+) 4x
Chords chould be played on beats 1,4, & 6 of the 4/4 bar, and 1,3 & 5 of the 7/8 bar.
The first pair of bars is repeated six times total, then the 3/4 bars are played four times.
Each pair of chords in parentheses below is repeated 3 times.

(Am7 Bm7) (Cm7 Dm7) (Ebm7 Fm7) (F#m7 Abm7) (Am7 Bm7)

I'm fairly certain that Trey is using the standard Jazz fingering for
these minor 7 chords:

   Am7  Bm7  (etc.)
E:--5-----7-
B:--5-----7-
G:--5-----7-
D:--5-----7-
A:----------
E:--5-----7-

The idea is that you use your 2nd finger on the 6th string and the 3rd
finger barred across the other 4 strings, and you play all of  these
chords in the same way, just changing your position on the fretboard.

Anyhow, this leads directly into the first guitar solo.  The bend on
the first note and the slide, pull-offs, hammer ons, and vibrato, are
the keys to playing this right.  Again, no timing information is
shown (sorry).

This repeats twice, on the second time playing this bridge:

  A                      E       Eb       F#       A      C
     1
    /       P      P
E|------9-------------------------------------------9-9-11-12-|
B|-12-----12-9-9------------------------10-11-11-13-----------|
G|---------------11-9-----9--9-11-12-12-----------------------|
D|--------------------11--------------------------------------|

        Eb        F#         A

B|--------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|

The solo repeats twice more, ending like this:

  A                      E  D/E E A/E Emaj7 A/E E D/E Gm7 Gm7b5  F
     1                       |
    /       P      P         v
E|------9------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-12-----12-9-9--------------7--9--10---9---10--9--7--11---11----10-|
G|---------------11-9-----9---7--9--9----8---9---9--7--10---10----10-|
D|--------------------11------7--9--11---9---11--9--7--12---11----10-|
A|----------------------------7--7-------7-------7--7--10---10----8--|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

The organ plays on the F chord very quietly as the second solo starts.  
Notice the implied notes (in parentheses); these are sometimes played,
sometimes not, but they are very important to the feel of the song.  Don't
emphasize them too much; they should be used as passing guide tones.

This repeats 4 times, the fourth time ending on a BbMaj7 instead of an F,
then it plays this bridge:
           Dm7         Am7         BbMaj7      F
                                      /S
E|----10-12-13----10-13-12----10-12-10-17-15-13------|
B|-10----------10----------13-------------------13---|
G|---------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|

        Dm7         Am7         Gm7         C

E|----------------------------------------------|
B|----------------15-13----------------------13-|
G|----12-14----14-------14-12-14-15-12-14-15----|
D|-15-------15----------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|

The solo repeats 2 more times (substituting the  BbMaj7 on the last time again),
then plays the bridge again with more distortion on the guitar, then repeats the
solo 2 more times, again substituting the Bbmaj7 and holding the last note as
long as possible.

This leads into (yes, you guessed it)....

Solo 3 (Ending theme):

All the other Divided Sky tabs stop at about 8:30, so this is more of the
solo from the Junta album, starting at 8:15 and going to 9:10.

(*Note: an alternate way to notate this progression is Em Eb+ G/D C#mb5; this
highlights the falling baseline a bit better at the expense of making the
chords seem a lot more complicated.)
