Our Lady Peace "Denied" Performance Notes:

This song is pretty basic.  The opening lick is a somewhat simple arpeggiated figure that is 
a bit tough on the timing but, with a little listening to the album, it should be playable 
in no time at all.  I'm not sure if the timing is as accurate as it could be.  I don't 
compose music for orchestras but, I do know a bit about timing, etc.  I'm just hoping that 
it's right.  When playing Riff: 2, try and play it as "fluidly" as possible.  If you listen
to Mike's playing on the album, he plays it a great deal of finesse.  So keep that in mind 
performing that particular riff.  Riffs 3, 6A and 6B are all pretty much similar but, with
a slight variation in each.  The guitar solo is a bit tough.  Mike doesn't play a guitar 
a whammy bar to my knowledge (at least not live) so get your fingers warmed up for some 
serious vibrato!  Riff: 4B has major vibrato in it.  I must give credit to Mark Wiebe
(rwiebe@mindlink.bc.ca) for his transcription of "Denied".  He had recently posted his 
version to OLGA as I was in the middle of mine.  I used his solo for a bit of inspiration 
and borrowed a couple of notes from it for my transcription.  The outro solo is a bit buried
in the mix.  Hopefully, someday I can figure that out and I'll be able to post it.  The last
lick in the song is basically in free time and it's a distorted and contorted version of the
opening riff.  Listen to the song for more details.  Please feel free to e-mail me with any
questions or comments at morgano@ici.net.  Enjoy!!!
