Click here for the lyrics page for this song.

Hello everyone, I was bored yesterday afternoon, so I decided to transcribe
the music to Golgi. I am pretty sure that this is correct, but if you find a
mistake or know a better way to play this, please let me know. Also, I have
given the chord formations for those of you how may not know how to fret
some of these notes.

much more complex)

Golgi Solo

From: Jonah.Seiger@um.cc.umich.edu

From: mdbruce@leland.Stanford.EDU (Michael David Bruce)

---> A few things for those who are not totally familiar with guitar
tablature notation:

Tablature cannot convey precise information about timing and the duration of
notes. Nor does it help you to understand harmonic structure. BUT, it is
very helpful for those like me who are not totally comfortable reading and
writing in music notation.

I hope that you can at least get the drift of Trey's brilliant piece of
guitar playing from the notation below. I suggest you listen to the song
while reading/playing this for the first time. Pretty soon you'll get it

The first thing that you *should* know about the golgi solo part is that it
is *not* in a straight (i.e multiple of 4) time signature--count it out!!

There are 15 beats per phrase (where you would expect 16). It doesn't matter
how you do it, but I find three 4/4 measures and one 3/4 measure
convienient.

For the 1st part of the solo (starting @ 1:25), play:

Beats:(* = downbeat)
     * ^  ^ ^ *  ^ ^ ^ *   ^ ^ ^ * ^ ^
E|------------------------------------|
B|--3--3-4-6-66-4-3---1->>6-4-3-4-6-4-|
G|--3--3-3-3-33-3-3---1---------------|
D|--3--3-5-3-33-5-3---1----------3--5-|
A|------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------|
                                ^^^^

This little thingy is *very* important, IMHO. Trey does it quite a bit in
his playing. i.e. rather than just playing two notes consecutively, he
sticks another note in there (cf. The divided sky slow part). They're not
always that easy to hear, but without them, the music loses its feel, it's
color--everything. This is what makes it interesting.

The second half of the solo is the same thing with everything jacked up 2
frets (i.e. now in the key of C rather than Bb).

Above is for 4 repetitions, then go up two frets:

     * ^  ^ ^ *  ^ ^ ^ *   ^ ^ ^ * ^ ^
E|------------------------------------|
B|--5--5-6-8-88-6-5---3->>8-6-5-6-8-6-|
G|--5--5-5-5-55-5-5---3---------------|
D|--5--5-7-5-55-7-5---3----------5--7-|
A|------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------|

Above repeats 3 times, and the fourth is played differently:
E|------------------------------------------|
B|--5--5-6-8-88-6-5--->>8-6-4-6-8-9-11>>>13-|
G|--5--5-5-5-55-5-5---3---------------------|
D|--5--5-7-5-55-7-5---3----------------5--7-|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

NOTE: numbers directly above one another (like 5/5/5 above) are played at
the SAME TIME; numbers that are not directly above one another (like
B/5...G/7 above) are played in succession.

AND THIS LEADS INTO THE SOLO....

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-13-11->>9-9--11>>13-11-9-8-8-8^^9-11-9------------------------------|
G|-------------8------------------------------11-8--11-10-9-8---10-13--|
D|-------------------------------------------------9---------9-11------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-11-9>>7-7--9>>11-9-7-6-6-6^^7-9-7-----------------------------|
G|-----------6-------------------------9-6--9-8-7-6---8---11>>>--|
D|-----------------------------------------7-------7-9-----------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

E|----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-9-7>>5-5--7>>9-7-5>4-4-4^^5-7-5--------------------------------|
G|----------4-----------------------7-4--7-6-5-4-----6-9>>>-------|
D|--------------------------------------5--------5-7--------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-7-5>>3-3--5>>7-5-3>2-2-2^^3-5-3-------------------------------|
G|----------2----------------------5-2--5-4-3-2-----4-7>---------|
D|-------------------------------------3--------3--5-------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------|

And then back to:
     * ^  ^ ^ *  ^ ^ ^ *   ^ ^ ^ * ^ ^
E|------------------------------------|
B|--5--5-6-8-88-6-5---3->>8-6-5-6-8-6-|
G|--5--5-5-5-55-5-5---3---------------|
D|--5--5-7-5-55-7-5---3----------5--7-|
A|------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------|

Four times through.

After the solo (which I won't repost), you go back to that main riff above
(here again, it's two frets up--in C) and then suddenly, you chop it off
right after the end of measure three and play:

A ^ ^ ^ A ^ ^ ^ Asus4 ^ ^ ^ Asus4 ^ ^ ^

over and over again, until it feels just right. And of course, if you're
phish, you change your volumes, lie down, jump up and down, play ditties
over that and so on. Then for that fantastic glorious build, you play

F ^ Eb ^ D ^ Eb ^ F ^ Eb ^ D ^ Eb ^ F ^ G ^ A ^ Bb ^ C ^ C# ^ D!!!!!!!!

And back to the chorus. All of these are played with the D-shaped chord and
then slid up and down the fretboard starting at fret 5. Play around with it.
Of course, I have seen Trey use the A-shaped chord as a substitute for the
first coupla bars. Depends on what you've been doing just prior to that. The
beauty is that with improvisational music, nothing is set in stone.

NOTES:

1) I have done my best to show the timing of the notes, but the rhythm is
difficult to convey in tablature. You're going to have to listen to the song
to get the time.

2) A ">" or a ">>" means that the previous note "slides" up to the next... A
" ^^ " means that the note is "hammered"

3) The numbers correspond to the FRET on which that particular STRING is
played
