Cry Free - Deep Purple (Blackmore/Gillan/Glover/Lord/Paice)

Transcribed by Christopher Hopkins (

>From the Album - In Rock (25th Anniversary)

The Transcription takes you through before the bridge which leads into the 
guitar solo.  The Transcription covers the intro and verse parts.

The tune starts off with the following chromatic sequence :

e |------------------|----------------| => To Main Riff
B |------------------|----------------|
G |------------------|----------------|
D |----------------- |----------------|
A |-5--6--7----------|--2--3--4--5----|
E |---------3--4--5--|----------------|

Main Riff

e |----------------|----------------|----------------|
B |----------------|----------------|----------------|
G |----------------|----------------|----------------|
D |---------------5|---------------5|---------------5|
A |-7-7-7-7-7-7-77-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-77-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-77-|
E |----------------|----------------|----------------|

e |----------------|-------------|
B |----------------|-------------|
G |----------------|-------------|
D |----------------|-------------|
A |-7-7-7-7-7-7-77-|---7---6---5-|
E |----------------|-------------|

Like a lot of the tunes on In Rock, the verse rythm is based on the
descending sequence from Bar 5 of the main riff.

Verse Rythm

   C#5                E5  D#5 D5 
e |----------------|-------------|
B |----------------|-------------|

D |-6-6-6-6-6-6-66-|---9---8---7-|
A |-4-4-4-4-4-4-44-|---7---6---5-|
E |----------------|-------------|

End of Verse

Then when Ian Sings "Cry.......Free" play this :

   Cry............ Free.............

   E5              F#5
e |---------------|----------------| (1st Time back to Main Riff)
B |---------------|----------------| (2nd Time go to bridge)
G |-9-(hold)------|-11-(hold)------|
D |-9-(chord)-----|-11-(chord)-----|
A |-7-(full bar)--|-9--(full bar)--|

After this there is bridge and 2 guitar solos.
