King Crimson : 21st Century Schizoid Man    transcription by Dennis Montgomery
						 warlock@halloween.EBay.Sun.COM

I used 3 versions of Schizoid Man to transcribe this:
  1) Studio : _In the Court of the Crimson King_
  2) Live : Providence disc from the amazing new _Great Deceiver_ boxed set 
		(also the same version originally released on _USA_)
  3) Live : My *Alltime Favourite* version from _Earthbound_

NOTES: 	1) Standard bar chords unless otherwise noted
	2) This transcription isn't rigidly Beginning -> End.  I'll write it by 
		section then assume knowledge of repeating parts... 


First the chords:
The main chordal riff in 4/4:
1   2       3     4|1  2  3  4
C   A# C D# A#  C  |F   F#   G

Alternate used before vox:  
1   2       3     4  1  2    3 4
C   A# C D# F   G   |13---14---15-|
		    |16*--17*--18*| *Bend each 1 whole step
		    |-------------|
		    |-------------|
		    |-------------|
		    |-------------|

Vocal Section Chord from hell:
  Interpretations of this chord are legendary, this one sounded best to me:
		x
		8
		8
		10
		10
		8
		Cat's foot etc...

Exit main chordal riff:
F F# G : Repeat 6 times, increase tempo then...

|---------------------------------13-\-/-\->then you're on your own...
|------------------------------------| ...for this is the Solo from Hell :)
|------------------------------------|------------------------------------|

...And speaking of hell, here are the inhumanly fast parts...

Fast1*

|----------------3---3-5-3-5-3---3-5---5-------|
|--------3---3-5---5-----------5---------------|
|--1-3-5---5-----------------------------------|
|3---------------------------------------------|
*The rhythm is correct so if you play the triplet at the indicated time 
  (and allow 1 note length) you should be dead on.
   The notes themselves are pretty close but open to interpretation...

Fast2**

**Same as * except last 7 notes are definitely correct

|------------|------------|------------3-0-----|------------3-0-----|
|------------|------------|----------------3-0-|----------------3-0-|
|------------|------------|--------------------|--------------------|
|------------|------------|--------------------|--------------------|

The order for the inhumanly fast section:
  Fast1, Fast2, Fast3, Fast1, Stop&Go, Mute1, Mute1, Fast3, Fast1, Stop&Go

Then back into the unison runs, vox, and opening chords.  By the time the song
 ends you should have either achieved enlightenment or neurotic breakdown :)
  One thing's for sure, if you make it all the way through, you're well on
   your way to becoming a 21st Century Schizoid Man...Have fun!
