"Frame by Frame" from the King Crimson album "Discipline"
Fripp Guitar Part (essentials)
Transcribed by Reginald Hunt


The song begins with Fripp playing a rapid 1/16-note riff repeated many times:

-------------|
-------------|
-------------| then after 32 measures of 4/4 he shifts up to
-----4-6-4---|
-4-7-------7-|
-------------|

---------------|
---------------|
---------------| after 16 measures of 4/4 he shifts up to
------7-9-7----|
-7-10-------10-|
---------------|

-------------|                              -------------|
-------------|                              -------------|
-----5-7-5---| for 2 measures of 4/4 then   -----6-8-6---| for 2 measures of 4/4.
-5-8-------8-|                              -6-9-------9-|
-------------|                              -------------|
-------------|                              -------------|

**********************************************************************************************

The next pattern (F# minor) is:

---------------|                                 ---------------|-------------|
---------2-----|                                 ---------2-----|---------2---|
-2---4-----4---| for 2 times then                -2---4-----4---|-2---4-----4-|  for 7 times
---4---4-----4-| (if this is the 3rd             ---4---4-----4-|---4---4-----|  then 
---------------| go round, make it 6 times)      ---------------|-------------|
---------------|                                 ---------------|-------------|

---------------|                         
---------2-----|                        
-2---4-----4---| again for 5 times then  
---4---4-----4-| (if this is the 3rd                        
---------------| go round, jump to +++Coda+++ after 5 times)                        
---------------|                         

----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
---------4------|---------4------|---------4------|---------4------|
-2---4------4---|-2---4------4---|-1---4------4---|-1---4------4---|
---3---3------3-|---3---3------3-|---3---3------3-|---3---3------3-|
----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

Note that Fripp plays the above 13/8 pattern against Belew's 14/8 pattern giving an "echo"
effect that ceases after the 7 repeats.

**********************************************************************************************

The next pattern (A minor) is:

---------------|                         
---------5-----|                        
-5---7-----7---| for 8 times then  
---7---7-----7-|                         
---------------|                         
---------------|                         

------------8------|
------10-----------|
-9-----------------|
---10----10---10---|
-----------------0-|
-------------------|

----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
---------5------|---------7------|---------7------|---------7------|
-5---7------7---|-5---7------7---|-4---7------7---|-4---7------7---|
---6---6------6-|---6---6------6-|---6---6------6-|---6---6------6-|
----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|
----------------|----------------|----------------|----------------|

Now return to the beginning and play it all again (but play the first
rapid pattern only 16 times).

---7---7-----7-|

-7-------7-------7-------7-------7-------7-------||

Although I've seen Fripp play the last riff this way:

--------------------------------------------------------||
--------------------------------------------------------||
--------------------------------------------------------||
-7-10-12-10-7-10-12-10-7-10-12-10-7-10-12-10-7-10-12-10-||
