"December" - Collective Soul

I am 13 and have been playing the guitar for a couple of
years now.

I figured this out within 2 or 3 minutes of watching the
music video on MTV.

"December" - Collective Soul

Transcribed by Les Bemont (bemont@austin.asc.slb.com)

I'm not totally confident about some parts so any corrections are welcome.

riff 1 (clean electric):

e|-|--------------3-----------|--------------3-----------|
B|-|-----------------3--------|-----------------3--------|
G|-|-----0-----0--------0-----|-----0-----0--------0-----|
D|-|--0-----0-----------------|--0-----0-----------------|
A|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|


e|-|--------------3-----------|--------------------------|
B|-|-----------------3--------|--------------------------|
G|-|-----0-----0--------0-----|-----0-----------0--0-----|
D|-|--0-----0-----------------|--0-----0-----------------|
A|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|


riff 2 (slightly distorted):

e|-|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|
B|-|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--|
G|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
D|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
     x  x  x  x  x  x  x  x     x  x  x

     < (volume builds)          <

I can't remember on exactly which note the muting stops...


riff 3 (this may not even be a guitar on the record :) ):

e|-|--3-----3-----3--5--3-----|--1-----1-----1--3--1-----|
B|-|--3-----3-----3--3--3-----|--1-----1-----1--1--1-----|
G|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
D|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|

e|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
B|-|--5-----5-----5--5--5-----|--3-----3-----3--3--3-----|
G|-|--5-----5-----5--7--5-----|--3-----3-----3--5--3-----|
D|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E|-|--------------------------|--------------------------|

chord prog (acoustic):

|: G | F | C | A# :|

Bass:

G-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
D-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
E-|--3-----------------------|--1-----------------------|

G-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
D-|--------------------------|--------------------------|
A-|--3-----------------------|--1-----------1-----2-----|
E-|--------------------------|--------------------------|

The bass starts mixing it up as the song goes on, but it's
pretty much just variations on the above.


riff 1 6X
chord prog 2X
chord prog 2X w/riff 3
riff 1 6X
chord prog 2X
chord prog 2X w/riff 3
riff 3 2X
riff 1 3X
chord prog 2X
chord prog 4X w/riff 3 and lots of adlibing...
riff 1

There is also another guitar doing some dabbling.  I've tried to
make the timing accurate, but this is from memory.

First one's wrong in some spots and so is the second, but they're still pretty close. Good job.
