Fairport Convention – Autopsy tab
Fairport Convention: AUTOPSY (transcribed by stevennorrie) One of the nicest songs Sandy has written with Fairport, appearing on the album It has a very complex rythm structure: The first part is set into a jazzy 5/4 time signature, into 4/4 and then back again into a 5/4 timing. The beautiful Richard-Thompson-solo is one of my favourites) is set into 4/4 time and then changes into a 6/4 timing, as soon the dulcimer comes in. Anyway here it is: (5/4) Intro: Dm Gm Dm Gm You must philosophise, Bb Am Gm But why must you bore my to tears? Dm Gm You´re red around the eyes, Bb Am Gm You tell me things no one else hears Dm Gm You spend all your time crying, Bb Am Gm Crying the hours into tears, Bb Am Gm Crying the hours into tears Bb Cm F (do some picking) (4/4) Gm Come lend your time to me, Cm F And you will know that you are free Gm And when you look at me Cm F Don´t think you´re owning what you see, Gm For remember that you´re free, Cm (I believe Richard plays something in in harmony to Cm) And that´s what you want to be, Gm So just lend your time to me Solo: Bb Dm Gm Dm Gm (play it somewhere around the fifth fret, going up to the fret) (6/4) Bb Am Gm Bb Am Gm accompanied by dulcimer) Then play the first part (without the Intro) again, until the first change of timing. And that´s it then... Have fun with it... Steven
