PG. 99 - Living In The Skeleton Of A Happy Memory
Document #7

Transcribed (badly) by Devoured by Vegans

This is probably wrong, some bits i'm almost certain of others not so much.
Most of these riffs are just a guide to give an idea! Pg 99 play quite loosely
often with three guitarists, so be noisy and messy as you see fit.
As mentioned PG.99 often had three guitarists so some of these chords maybe
wrong and are more likely a compound of multiple chords on 2 or 3 guitars.
Im not certain there is a third guitar on this song, if there is it
sounds like it is possibly mirroring the right guitar since the right guitar
track has some ghosting.

I am aware that some of these riffs are simply transcribed in different
positions with minor differences i think this is correct and part of what
makes some of the riffs sound unusual when layered.

The two obvious guitar tracks are panned left and right.
Left guitar is relatively clean with a bit of overdrive
Right guitar is more distorted.

Tuning - EADGBE


Riff 1 - Left guitar (0:41)
----------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------|
---------------------------0-------------0----------|

Listen to track for rhythm, picking direction and muting.
Play sloppy catching the G string occasionally.


Riff 2 - Both guitars (1:54)

---0----0----0----0---------------------------|

---2----2----2----2-----0--3------------------|
Then play this at a steady rhythm again sloppy with some open strings
Sounds like the left guitar plays unison bends instead of the last 3 notes.


Riff 4a - Both guitars (2:32)
---------------------------------------|
---------------------------------------|

---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3----|

Left guitar plays riff 4a 6 times, the right guitar plays for the first two
bars and then plays 4b twice and 4c twice.

Riff 4b - Right Guitar (2:46)
-------------------------------|

Not sure what this riff is here, but something droning along these lines.

Riff 4c - Right Guitar (2:55)

This could be two different chords played on two guitars, not sure on this.
Just play messily and it sounds about right.

3:12 one guitar then plays some open strings across the G, B and E strings for 2 bars,
whilst the other guitars make noises by tapping the neck and playing strings above the 
nut and bridge.


Riff 5 - (3:26)
-------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------|
----------0--------------------------|
-------1-----1---0-------------------|
---2---------------------0-----------|
---------------------3--------1------|
This is played by the left guitar alone twice whilst the right guitar makes
some noise. The Right guitar then takes over for 6 bars, whilst the left
guitar plays the riff below.

---------------------------------------3-3-3----|
Played sloppily with lots of accidentals, again listen for rhythm


Riff 7a - Left Guitar (4:56)
-----------------------------------------------------|

---6--6--6--6--6--6--6--6--5--5--5--5--3--3--3--5----|
Listen for rhythm, play with vibrato
The left guitar plays this 14 times, whilst the right guitar does the following:

Riff 7b - Right guitar (5:04)
------------|
------------|
---7--------|
------------|
---5--------|
------------|
After one bar of 7a the right guitar repeats this octave over the left guitar for 7 
bars, listen for rhythm.


Riff 7c - Right guitar (5:45)
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-15---15-15-15---15-15-15/17--17-17-17/19--19-19-19\-15--15-15-15---15-15-15\14--14-14-14---|
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
-13---13-13-13---13-13-13/15--15-15-15/17--17-17-17\-13--13-13-13---13-13-13\12--12-12-12---|
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
Apply vibrato to these octaves and play 4 bars and then tremolo pick these for the last 2.
Its worth listening to the cd here, since the guitarist varies what he plays in a couple 
of bars.

After this both guitars play some garbage high up the neck for 2 bars.

Right guitar plays this, while the other guitars gently repeat an harmonic
on the 7th fret of the low E string until the end.

Lack of accuracy. does not understand pg. 99's playing style at all. they are all about the bending and octaves. and a lot of notes are just plain wrong.
