"Speechless"
Album: Colin James  "Bad Habits"

Date: 6 January 2006
From: Garry Ciambella 
Transcribed by: Garry Ciambella
I declare that the transcription is done by myself.

- more or less. I'm doing this by ear and it's just to get you all going.
There's a moderate amount of stuff going on in here. Since it's an instrumental (only) 
I tried to put in some timing stuff. Follow along with the CD to get it right.

The somg is in the key of G in standard tuning. The riffs are mostly G major pentatonic 
Em pentatonic) or more likely the Em blues scale (practically the same as the Em pent). 
are a lot of bends and pull offs and
hammer ons (or is it pulls off and hammers on ?)

Intro chords +

G /// /// D - Em /// //  F F#
G /// /// D - Em /// then tack on the following descent riff
( or play these chords instead D/ C/ Bm7/ Am7 )
You just "pass through" the D to the Em in the above progression.

Descent riff

e --------------------|
B ---7---5---3---1----|
G --------------------|
D ---7---5---4---2----|
A --------------------|
E --------------------|

VERSE

G // Bm - C / G / D /// ////
(just pass through the Bm...play this whole progression twice...
after the second measures of D, play the following chord to lead
into the upcoming Em

e --x--
B --7-- 3-|
G --8-- 4-|
D --7-- 2-|
A --6-- 1-|
E --x--

PRE-CHORUS
Em /// G /// Em /// B7 ///
C /// Db dim /// D/ C/ Bm7/ Am7
                  ^
(or use the descent riff again here)

(D dim =
e --3-- 1---|
B --5-- 1+4-|
G --3-- 1---|
D --5-- 1+3-|
A --4-- 1+2-|
E --x--

(barre the 3rd fret with index and place fingers 2-3 and 4
on the indicated frets)

There's also a sliding riff on the G after the Em in the pre-chorus
This could be off, but it should be close enough.

e --12/7--------  2 then 2 then 2 then 1-|
B --------7/8----------------------------|
G --12/7---------------------------------|  use 3nd finger throughout
D --------7/9----------------------------|
A ---------------------------------------|
E ---------------------------------------|

CHORUS
G / D / C /// (play 3 times)
F / F# / G /// (play this quiet part Hendrix-style)
e -----------------------------------------|
B ---10----10----------11----11--------12--|
G ---10----10----------11----11--------12--|
D ---10----10h12p10----11----11h13p11--12--|
A ---10h12-------------11h13---------------|
E -----------------------------------------|

Repeat the verse /  pre-chorus / chorus (with hendrix riff 2x on the second pass)
and end like the beginning of the intro but finish on the Em.

G /// D Em


Good Luck,
Garry
