Melodyssey-The Pitch

A forward slash / means to slide up to next indicated pitch.
A bracket ( indicates palm muting.
 b = Bend
 r = Release

The main riff for this song uses a pitch sweep pedal effect to sweep up a whole
octave. If you don't have a pedal, you could just finger an octave jump thus:

Intro/Chorus:

1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 e|----------------|----------------| B|----------------|----------------| G|------4---------|------6---------| D|----------------|----------------| A|2-----------2/--|4---------------| E|----------------|----------------|
Variation 1:

Variation 2: 1 2 3 4 1 2 3 4 e|----------------|----------------| B|----------------|----------------| G|------4---------|----------------| D|----------------|---(6------(6---| A|2-----------2/--|4--(4------(4---| E|----------------|---(4------(4---|
Using the pedal is more difficult to explain, but if you're good enough to coordinate your foot, you could probably figure out this easy riff anyway. Verses use a lighter distortion and a fast vibrato/tremolo effect. Easy three note chords. Verse: (You must have caught me unaware...)

Back into Intro/Chorus as above. Then another Verse ...And chorus. Then the breakdown/synth solo. Now the first part of the breakdown is the same as first 8 bars of the verse above. But the second time it is played, the last 3 chords are changed. Now I blame my human imperfection for not letting me figure out these last three chords. I THINK they may be: A A again and Em
|---5-----------5-----------3----| |---5-----------5-----------5----| |---6-----------6-----------4----| |--------------------------------| |--------------------------------| |--------------------------------|
Here's the synth solo. I think it sounds best with huge gain and wah, and played in a legato slide style, only picking the first note and vibrato-ing each subsequent note heavily to keep the sustain going. You can play it however you like of course...
|--------------------------------| |-7/--12-----11\--7/---10\--8--9-| |--------------------------------| |--------------------------------| |--------------------------------| |--------------------------------|
Then just go back to the chorus and then the verse until the cymbal solo outro. Final chord is a B minor (surprise, surprise). Josh Vadas: ddprv@hunterlink.net.au
