Song: I Got ID(shit)
By: Pearl Jam                               
Music/words: Eddie Vedder

                            ******************
                            *"I GOT ID(SHIT)"*
                            *  by Pearl Jam  *
                            ******************

Well all you Pearl Jam fans out there here's my interpretation of "I Got ID"
from the CD/promo Merkinball. Feel free to add too it because it is not
100% complete, just don't destroy what I've done.

This is a correction to my original post!!!!!!!!!!

KEY:** X means fill in with number(s) **

    oX       Strum lightly
    X_\      Hold previous note(s) and slide up       

INTRO: Repeat 3 times with slight variations

e|5--o5-5--55-6-6o6-5-55-66o6--5-5-5__\-3---o3--o3o3-3----------------------|
b|7-----7--77-6-6o6-7-77-66o6--7-7-7__\-5---o5--o5o5-5----------------------|
g|7-----7--77-7-7o7-7-77-77o7--7-7-7__\-5-o5o5o5o5o5-5----------------------|
d|0--------0--0-----0----0-----0--------0-o0--o0----------------------------|
a|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Part just before it breaks into the heavy stuff:

e|5--o5-5--55-6-6o6-5-55-66o6--5-5-5__\-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------|
b|7-----7--77-6-6o6-7-77-66o6--7-7-7__\-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------|
g|7-----7--77-7-7o7-7-77-77o7--7-7-7__\-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-----------|
d|0--------0--0-----0----0-----0--------0-----0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------|
a|--------------------------------------------------0-0-0-5-5-5-5-----------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Basic chord progression: Bm F# G repeat 4 times 
Actual Chords:
                Bm   F#     G
I got         e|-2----2-----3---|
memories      b|-3----2-----3---|
I got shit    g|-4----3-----4---|
so much       d|-4----4-----5---|
it don't show a|-2----4-----5---|
              E|------2-----3---|

I guess you would call this the chorus: repeats several times (bla bla bla)
It's definitely not exact!

e|2---2---0---0----0---0-----3-3-3-3-3--------------------------------------|
b|3----3--1----1---1---1-1---0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------|
g|2-0---0-2-----2--0-0-0--0--0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------|
d|0-------2-2------2-2-----2-0-0-0-0-0--------------------------------------|
a|--------0--------3-3-------2-2-2-2-2--------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------3-3-3-3-3--------------------------------------|

All of this is just the basic framework of the song, you'll repeat certain
parts, add some of your own stuff.

Ok, this is the A-side to the Merkin Ball single. Stone, Mike, and Jeff 
don't play on the song, but there's going to be a different version of it 
on the new album, or so I've heard. Neil Young plays guitar on this 
version, and Brendan O'Brien plays bass. Anyway, it's a great song. Here 
it is:

Intro
-----
     
     D   D   Dm    D    Dm    D    ?
e:|--2---2----1----2-----1----2----0-------------------
B:|--3---3----3----3-----3----3----1-------------------
G:|--2---2----2----2-----2----2----2-------------------
D:|--0---0----0----0-----0----0----0-------------------
A:|---------------------------------------------
E:|---------------------------------------------

This goes on for the begginning of the song, when Eddie sings "My lips 
are shaking...." On the last time through, strum a C chord taking you 
into the...

Verse
-----

This part's easy. Just three chords.
   EADGBe
Bm x24432
F# 244322
G  320022

Chorus
------
Ok, I'm pretty sure this part's right. Four chords:

   EADGBe
D  x00232
Am x02210
C  x30210
G  320022


And that's it! Here's the order you play everything in:

Intro x4
Verse x4
Chorus x2
Intro x2 during guitar solo
Intro x2
Verse x4
Chorus x4
Intro x9

Pearl Jam - "I Got Id" off the Merkin Ball single.
Release Date   : 12-5-95
Tabbed on      : 12-5-95 (same day it was released)
Transcribed by : Gus Perez 'gperez@gate.net'


I heard this song and was instantly addicted to it.  From what I've
heard this is Pearl Jam (minus Stone/Mike) with Neil Young on the
guitars.  The song is played in standard tuning, where some parts
are played clean and others are played with distortion, some LOUD and
some with the volume knob very low.  Play around with the chords and
you should have it pretty quick, it's kinda improvised around the
same chords.


INTRO: (Is also played throughout the song as well as the solo)
      
e|--10------10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10---8--------|

d|o-12------12-12----12-12----12-12-------12-12----12-12--10-10-10-o|
a|------------------------------------------------------------------|
e|------------------------------------------------------------------|


PRE-CHORUS: (Loud powerchords with a'la Neil Young distortion)
            B   F#  G 
            x   x   x
            x   x   x 
            x   x   x
            9   4   5
            9   4   5
            7   2   3

CHORUS: (I believe it's two guitars, Guitar 1 plays the power chords,
         and Guitar 2 plays the open chord arpeggio's)

   Guitar 1: Plays the power chords in this order:
            D   A   C   G 
            x   x   x   x
            x   x   x   x 
            7   x   x   x 
            7   7   10  5
            5   7   10  5
            x   5   8   3

   Guitar 2: Plays the open chords in this order:
            D   Am  C   G
            2   0   0   3
            3   1   1   3 
            2   2   0   0 
            0   2   2   0
            x   0   3   2
            x   x   x   3

SOLO:
You pretty much play the intro over and over again, but you 
emphasize the key notes, improvise it it's not hard at all...

These are the lyrics (or an approximation) that I got off of the 
newsgroups.  This was not written by me, it was written by me but
by Kelly Martinez, I'd like to take the time to thank Kelly, cause 
I for sure can't figure out the lyrics...(LAKH73A@prodigy.com)

I GOT SHIT (Merkin Ball)

My lips are shakin'
My nails are bit off
Been a month since I've heard myself talk
Only advantage this life's got on me
Picture a cup in the middle of the sea

And I fought back in my mind...
Never lets me be right...
I got memories
I got shit
So much it don't show it...

Oh, I walked the line...
When you held me in the night
Oh, I walked the line...
When you held my hand and cried

On empty shells seem so easy to grab
Got all these questions, don't know who I could even ask
So I'll just lie alone and wait for the dream
That I'm not ugly and your lookin' at me

And I sent you to bed...
Oh, in a little while I'll see now
If just once I could feel love...
Oh, stare back at me.

Oh, I walked the line...
When you held me in the night
Oh, I walked the line...
When you held my hand at night
Oh, I walked the line....
When you held me close at night.
I paid the price...
Never held you in the right

My lips are shakin.......

I learned this a long time ago and it is 100% correct.  It is on their
Merkinball single or you can get it on Neil Youngs Mirrorball.

e-----0---------------10---------0----------------10----------0----------8-----
B----10---------------11--------10----------------11---------10----------8-----
G----11---------------10--------11----------------10---------11----------9-----
D-----0---------------0----------0-----------------0----------0----------0-----
A------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------------------------------

repeat this riff for the verses but strum in between each chord change a few
times.

The Bridge or Pre-Chorus goes like this:

  "Once, I could feel loved . . . . . . . "

e--2---2-2---2-2-2----2--2-x----3----3---3---------------------------------
B--3---3-3---3-3-3----2--2-x----3----3---3---------------------------------

A--2---2-2---2-2-2----4--4-x----5----5---5---------------------------------
E--x---x-x---x-x-x----2--2-x----3----3---3---------------------------------

you can add a few strums too each chord. repeat it four times

Then the Chorus goes:

  "I       walked in line   ,  will you help me in real life . . . " 

e--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---5------------------8---------------3----

A--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---7-----------------10---------------5----
E--x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x---5------------------8---------------3----
  
each chord recieves eight even strums.
 
THe solo:

just mess around with these notes:

e-10-----12--13------
B-10-11--12--13------
G-10-11--12--13------
D-10-----12----------

This tab sounds pretty good. I'm suprised that nobody said anything about it. Its funny that the song's also called "I got Id" because the whole time i was looking for this song, I've been looking for "I got Shit" but I figured there was no tab for it, but there is.
Thanks
