"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.
