Greedy (Boo Hewerdine)

This is on Boo Hewerdine's third album, Baptist Hospital. It's played in A
(capo at 2nd fret). All the below is written as though played in G (at the
nut), so if you're playing with a capo at the 2nd fret, remember to play the
TAB sections two frets higher than written here.

[Intro] :

G -------------------------0------------------------------------- ||
D -----4-p-2--4----2-h-4------4--2-p-0---------------------------.||
A ----------------------------------------3-----2--0-------------.||
E -0--------------------------------------------------3----0----- || x 2

                Em                   C
You can call me greedy        coz I keep a piece of me
                Em                       C
You can call me greedy        there's a place you'll never see
                         Am                        G +
where the lights are all out  and the door stays slammed
                 Am             G+6  B
if that's being greedy,              that's what I am

[repeat the intro]

              Em                         C
You hate me changing          it's the change you can't control
              Em                        C
You hate me changing          and the wandering of my soul
              Am                         G +
searching the storm           for some frozen calm*
                 Am            G+6 B
if that's being greedy             that's what I am

[instr.] :

repeat intro, then :

e --------------------------------------------------------------|
B --------------------------------------------------------------|
G --------------------------------------------------------------|
D ------------------------------------------7------9------------|
A -------5--7--7-----5---(5/)7------9--10-----------------------|
E ----7--------.--------7---------------------------------------|

     (Em)   (D)  (Bm)
e ---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B ----------------------------------------0----------------------------|
G -------------------------------0------2---0--------------------------|
D ----/14---/12---/9---7---5---4-----2--------------0--2--------2--4---|
A ---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E ---------------------------------------------0------------0----------|

(Remember this is written in G, so move it up 2 frets if you're playing in A)

[repeat first verse]

[repeat intro and ad lib guitar to fade]

022000 - Em
X32010 - C
X02210 - Am
320003 - G
X20003 - G/B
XX0000 - G+6
X24442 - B

/ is a slide up
h is a hammer on
p is a pull off

Strumming early on in the verse is the bass strings only, heavily damped by
your right hand resting on the bridge (almost so it sounds like a bass drum).
As the verse goes on bring in progressively more and more of the higher

+ This G could be G/B?or even another chord with B in the bass, although B
major, minor and their 7ths don't seem to fit.

* This could possibly be 'frozen qualm' (had it come from kd's clouds??), but
I also heard someone singing 'searching the storm for some frozen corn', which
has got to deserve a place in rock's list of classic misheard lyrics alongside
Elvis Costello's 'she is washing up the dishes, oh-oh don't get cute' and Jimi
Hendrix's "s'cuse me while I kiss this guy" !

Here's the instrumental section in A (i.e. exactly what you play if you're
using a capo at the 2nd fret) :

e --------------------------------------------------------------|
B --------------------------------------------------------------|
G --------------------------------------------------------------|
D ------------------------------------------9------11-----------|
A -------7--9--9-----7---(7/)9------11--12----------------------|
E ----9--------.--------9---------------------------------------|

    (F#m)   (E)  (C#m) <-actual chords played, you could use...
  ...(Em)   (D)  (Bm) SHAPES, with capo@2
e ---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B ----------------------------------------2----------------------------|
G -------------------------------2------4---2--------------------------|
D ----/16---/14---/11---9---7---6-----4--------------2--4--------4--6--|
A ---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E ---------------------------------------------2------------2----------|
