About this tab version
Adapted guitar part from a keyboard centered song. Very simple song revolving around 3 musical ideas featuring some interesting chord choices. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Hey guys, these are the chords to the new Steven Wilson song Permanating. I checked the chords on the piano
and they seem correct. I will try and provide some performance guidelines where needed. The song is in the
key of Eb major, and while I thought of suggesting dropping the guitar by a half step the Chorus modulation
would then be really awkward to play so it's better in standard tuning (note that the song is piano oriented).

Here are the voicings I use for the chords

[Verse]
   Ebmaj7   Abmaj7
e|----------------|
B|--8--------13---|
G|--7--------12---|
D|--8--------13---|
A|--6--------11---|
E|----------------|

[Chorus]
   C C/B Am Am/G# G  B/F# Bdim7/F  E
e|-------0--------3---2------------0--|
B|-5--5--1---1----3---3-----3------0--|
G|-5--5--2---1----4---4-----2------1--|
D|-5--5--2---2----5---4-----3------2--|
A|-3--2--0--(0)---5---2-----2------2--|
E|-----------4----3---2----(1)-----0--|

Note: There is a descending bass line (c, b, a, g#, g, f#, f, e) but some chords are just not comfortable to
play on a guitar so adjust your voicings accordingly. I usually dodge the f# and f but sometimes manage to
play them. Also the Am/G# is weird and I might be wrong about it, cause it seems to imply a C augumented chord
but on the piano it sounds alright if you just keep playing Am with your right hand and move the bass to G#.

[Intro]
This bit is played a few times throughout the song. First time there is no bass note but later when it appears
as the bridge, solo backing and outro the bass note is C. It repeats 3 times during the intro.

Spoken:
Somewhere on the highway
With a luminous moon
Swimming after dark and then
Awaken to you

[Verse]
Ebmaj7
Hold on

Hold onto the minute
     Abmaj7
And sing it

And live it

It's always there

Hold on

Hold onto the minute
    Abmaj7
And feel it

Believe it

We get older
Together

And every time we breathe
Another moment leaves us forever
To the nether

[Solo]
(Over pattern 1 x2)

This is the amazing tab by Ayreon77 for the solo, so go and give him a 5 star rating too :)
The solo is mostly C minor pentatonic with a few mixolydian notes scattered throughout.
