Subject: TAB:  Matte Kudasai by King Crimson

Matte Kudasai, by King Crimson, from _Discipline_.  Also on various 
compilation CDs and _The Acoustic Adrian Belew_.

The song is in implied E major.  This is the arpeggiated rhythm part Fripp 
plays behind Belew's improvised slide guitar solos and the lyrics.  Listen
to the song to get how things fit together.  I play it kind of like Adrian 
on _The Acoustic Adrian Belew_.  The song is in three time, and really 
swings.  If you're playing it on an acoustic, it should sound decent.  If 
you're playing it on an electric, use a _very_ light distortion (mostly for 
warmth), light chorus/flange, a long delay, and compression.  It will probably
sound OK on a plain clean guitar with some reverb, but I thought I'd give you
the full list!  I recently saw Crimson live and verified my guesses, so I think 
this is pretty close.  


Intro:

[A verse with no words, Adrian solos in E major and its related modes with 
a slide.  He also puts lots of slide licks in when there are no words.]


Verse 1:

(Verse Riff)
Stare at the window pane,

(Verse Riff with alternate ending)
Stare at the rain that's falling.

Chorus:

(Chorus Riff 1a) 
She waits in the air,

Chrous Riff 1b)
Matte Kudasai.

(Chorus Riff 1a)
She sleeps in a chair,

(Chrous Riff 1c)

(Chorus Riff 2a)
In her sad America.

(Chorus Riff 2b)
[no lyrics]



Verse 2:

[same as Verse 1]

Long, long is the night alone,
Long, like the notes I'm sending.

Chorus

(*) Fripp improvises on this bit, so try different things out. Mostly triple stops. e.g.,

I recommend doing stretching exercises before attempting it. I recommend using a thumb fret for the bass string, but if you can finger it some other way, go for it!)
