Subject: TAB: The Swamp Song  by Oasis

>From Fred Lidskog 

The Swamp Song, written by Noel Gallagher, performed by Oasis & Paul
Weller (I think).
Song can be found on the UK "Wonderwall" single and in parts on the album
"(What's The Story) Morning Glory?".

NOTE: What you'll hear in this live jam session is Bonehead playing one
part pretty much over and over again, Noel doing some fills and soloing,
while I believe Paul Weller does most of the soloing and fills and plays
the harmonica as well.

TAB KEY:

b = bend (7b9 means bend the string at the 7th fret to make the note the
  string would play at the 9th fret with no bend)
r = release bend
s = slide
h = hammer on
p = pull off


So, first of all, here's the basic riff that Bonehead (guitar #1) is
playing through most of the song:

    Am
e-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------------0--2--------------------------2--0--2----------------------|
D----------------------------------0---------------------------0--------|
A---0----0---------0---0---0---3-------0-----------0--0--0--3-----------|
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

NOTE: In the transcription below, every place there's an exclamation point
(!) above the tab, that's where Bonehead's riff above has been played
through one time, to help you figure out the rhythm of the song.

Before the drums and the other instruments chime in, there's a little of
this:

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--5--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--5----2---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--5----2---noise-------------------------------------------------------------|
A--3----0---------------0-----------0-------3--5--0--------0--3--0----3--5--0-|
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now, we have Noel (Guitar #2) playing some of the parts with a dirty
sounding distortion (some parts I don't have listed because they are hard
to distinguish from the background noise in this song and aren't very
important to the sound of this song as a whole, anyway), but Paul Weller
(guitar #3) does most of the soloing with the cleaner, heavier distortion
effect.

So, after Bonehead starts his riff, right at the end of the last time
through before Paul starts playing, Noel does this:

e---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-----------7b8--7p5--5-----5-----------------------------------------------|
D------------------------7-----7--------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then, Paul:

  !
e-12-----12-----------------------------------------|
B-15b17--15b17r15---13--15--13--13------------------|    Repeat
G-----------------------------------14--------------|     three
D---------------------------------------------------|    times
A---------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------|

On the fourth time:

	    !
    !e--12-----12-------------------------------------------------------------|
    !B--15b17--15b17r15---13--15--13--13--------------------------------------|
    !G------------------------------------14----------------------------------|
Paul    !D--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !E------------------------------------------------------------------------|
	!
	!
    !e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !G-------------------------------------7b8--5--7--5-----------------------|
Noel    !D--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !E------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Here, for 2 times through Bonehead's riff, Noel uses a muffled guitar
effect and picks at an "Am" chord, something like this:

   Am
e--------------0------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----1--0--1------0--1-----------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------repeat-a-few-times-----------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--0---------------------0--------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then, Paul:

 !
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------13--15b17r15--13-|
G-12--14^^^--12--12----12--14^^--12--14^^--12--14--14^^--14------------------|

G--14--14---14---------------------------14----14-------------------------|

E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

G---------14---14-----------------------------------------------14-------|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Here's where the song kind of stops for a minute:

    !e--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !B--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !G--------6b7r6-----------------------6b7r6b7r6b7r6b7r6b7-------------|

Paul    !D--------------------------------7-------------------------------|
    !A--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !E--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Drums & Bonehead pick up again:
