Far Out by Blur, from their triff album "Parklife"

This is a (rough) transcription of the cool synth part, not
the guitar part of this song, that has more than a passing
resemblance to Syd Barrett's style. The main melody is done
on the synth, so if you're playing solo this sounds a lot
better than the guitar part. Also you need loads of really
silly effects to do it well - or better still a guitar synth;
sadly I have neither. This transcription was considerably
aided by the sleeve insert on the album, which not only gives
the lyrics but the chords as well. Nice one.
I haven't done the guitar part at the start either; trying to
simulate a bongo roll a la Mission Impossible is a bit tricky
on one guitar.

Anyway, the song's mainly based around a C Eb progression.
The chorus is made up of 2 bars, an Ab Bb prog and an F prog
(see the lyric section for the order they come in), and
there's a little bridge part of Eb D after the first chorus.
