King Crimson -- Frame by Frame



This is the 7/8 guitar part that Belew plays during the singing:

----------------!----------------!--      ----------------!---------------!
----------2-----!----------2-----!--      ----------2-----!---------2-----!
--2---4-----4---!--2---4-----4---!- etc...--2---4-----4---!--2---4----4---!
----4---4-----4-!----4---4-----4-!--      ----3---3-----3-!----3---3----3-!
----------------!----------------!----    ----------------!---------------!
----------------!----------------!-       ----------------!---------------!


----------------!----------------!----------------!
----------2-----!----------2-----!----------5-----!
--2---4-----4---!--2---4-----4---!--5---7-----7---!  repeat the same pattern
----2---2-----2-!----2---2-----2-!----7---7-----7-!  at the 5th fret.
----------------!----------------!----------------!
----------------!----------------!----------------!

The fripp line on top of the belew 7/8 is basically the same riff in
alternating bars of 6 and 7, but KEEPING THE SAME 8th note value. 
This produces the funky intervals you hear... and you thought it
was a delay! (I know *I* did first time I heard it... 8-)).

------------------|---------------|
------------2-----|----------2----|
--2---4-------4---|--2---4--------|
----2---2-------2-|----2---2---2--|
------------------|---------------|  etc. over the 7/8 above...
------------------|---------------|


The chording during fripps' wacked out picking in the intro and 
between verses seems to be a barred 9th chord, dropping the 
unison on the G string to the major 7th, ie

--2-----2--2----|
--2-----2--2----|
--4-----3--4----|
--4-----4--4----|
--2-----2--2----|
--2-----2--2----|

with appropriate whammy bar antics for the first chord, then up to a
Dsus2 (5th & 7th fretts) then again another 3rd.  

Oh yeah, when the 13/8 and 7/8 fall back together, they play for
about 3 bars both in 7 *then* drop the bass note as noted above.

Some one is yet to figure out the "wacked out fripp part".

This was originally posted by Sven .
Excellent work on the 13/8 part, but I found a small error in the
second change of the 7/8 part: Instead of the second note in each 
measure moving down another half step, the first note moves down a 
half step.  I've also made some headway into the "Wacked out Fripp part."

Some one is yet to figure out the "wacked out fripp part".

However, it's based on the following:

------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
-----5-7-5-------5-7-5-------5-7-5--------------
-5-8-------8-5-8-------8-5-8-------8------------  etc
------------------------------------------------

Which modulates up to the 7th fret, then 10th, then 11th. The rhythm
is strange, I can't pin down if it's sextuplets, 6 against 4, or what.
It seems like he adds some notes sometimes to make things fit in.
