One Simple Idea
album: Inception (Music from the Motion Picture)
tabbed by ambient203

Tuning: Standard

This track from the outstanding new movie "Inception" basically consists
of riffs oriented around Am and Gm. There are alternating patterns in
each chord's respective riffs. Johnny Marr plays the guitar in this track.

I put a "V" where the chord/key changes are, hopefully that helps. I also
indicated the octave change with a "*". When the octave changes, you can
play that part as I've tabbed it, or play the riff around the 5th fret.
It would look something like this:

e|--5-6---6-5---5-6---10-5----|
B|------8-----------8---------|
G|------------7------------7--|
D|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|

The above version might be easier to transfer to; going right up to
the 10th fret immediately is tough and the last Gm riffs were definitely
recorded separately. Also, I try to only barre the D G B and e strings
for the 10th fret Gm riff (makes it a bit easier to keep playing there
for the next minute). I'm fairly sure the way I've tabbed it is the way
Johnny plays it (the above doesn't ring out as well).

I was going to try to tab the brass and strings, but, even if I could tab
it out, I don't think I could do Hans Zimmer justice. This is a fun song
to play, I hope this is helpful guys, enjoy!
