Crazy Rhythms – The Feelies
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Ruairi
E-mail:

Tuning: Standard

Alright so I have most of this tabbed out however there is a part that Glenn plays during the long instrumental 
part that I just can’t figure out.

Guitar 1: Glenn Mercer
Guitar 2: Bill Million

Guitar 1 opens the song with what sounds like A5 and A.
Most of the song is D and A which you can figure out the rhythm of by listening to the song.

After the first chorus there is a lengthy instrumental part.
THE INTRUMENTAL MIDDLE SECTION THING:
Switch between these chords for a while. Both guitars play this part.
e|--------------------0---0---0----------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------5---7---5----------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------6---6---7----------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------7---7---7----------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 1 also plays this (or something similar, it’s pretty much improvised) during the above part.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------5-----5-----5-----5-----5-----7-----5-----5-----5------------------|
G|-----6-----6-----6-----7-----6-----6-----6-----6-----6---------------------|
D|--7------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Whilst guitar 1 still plays the first section guitar 2 plays this a few times.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-222223222222--------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-222222222224--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-222222222222--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 1 plays the A barre chord whilst guitar 2 plays this. The last note is sometimes not played live but I’m 
pretty sure it’s in the studio version.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--7---5--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--6-------6---7---6--------------------------------------------------------|
D|--7-------------------7---5------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|-12---10---9---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------12---10-----------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------11---9--------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Guitar 2 then proceeds to play the A chord which you can palm mute or (as Bill does during live performances) 
strum up the fret board away from the pick-ups. Guitar 1 plays something during this part but I haven’t figured 
it out fully although here is the general gist of it. (not 100% accurate)
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------4------------------------5/(7)-------9-------5/(7)-------5(x2)|
E|-3/(5)---7-------3/(5)---7---5(x3)-----------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----5/777777777977777777775(x5)-------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------5-------------------------------------|

Both guitars then play the G and A chord (listen to the song for the rhythm, Glenn plays the barre chord 
variation of G seemingly) before going back to the A chord. After a few seconds guitar 1 just adds the 3rd fret 
of the high E to the a chord whilst guitar 2 plays this a few times.
e|13-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|12-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|12-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Both guitars play the final verse with the A and D chord before finishing along the lines of this:

D A D A D A D A D A D A D D D A D D D A D    D    D    D    D    D    A

Both guitars slide the final down to around the 12th fret (maybe higher) and improvise single notes until the 
end. Ending on A and not doing the improvisation sounds good too.

And that’s it. Glenn’s part isn't 100% accurate but it can be improvised.
