One More Red Nightmare

King Crimson

From the album "Red"

Most of the tabs on the Elephant Talk Wiki formed the basis of my tab. I'm going for
completeness rather than accuracy, so I do expect some parts to be off as I'm doing this
largely from memory. I am using bits and pieces of tabs from ETWiki, but editing the 
format, changing notes, etc, to make it one consistent format.

Some of the bigger changes/additions not seen on ETWiki so far have been the "lead"
guitar part under the verses, the lead under the sax solo sections, and the harmonies on the
big tritone riff. I've attempted to transcribe as much of it as I could.

Intro / Main Riff
-----------------

The first time around, this part is played without harmonies

Interlude / Saxophone Solo
--------------------------

The rhythm part is pretty much verbatim from Jacob Kjær. It needed no improvement. All I
did was edit the format to keep things consistent.

The rest of the song from here is just repeats of the parts already established. There
are many variations on the lead part in the sax solo, so what I wrote down is sort of a
guideline. I'm not 100% sure of every note, but it's a far more complete version than 
what we already have.

I think I hear a third guitar, at least in the Chorus:

. . . . . . . .   . . . . . . . .
D|---6---6-------6-|-5-5---5-2-5-2---|
A|---4---4-------4-|-3-3-------------|
E|-----------------|-----------------|


Could be there a third guitar in the rest of the song?

Could be. I didn't pick up every single thing in the song. But I still got more of it than most people. Thanks!
