Phish - Foam tab

Foam has been called by the band one of the hardest songs
   they play.  The four different parts that each member plays
   are completely independent from each other.  There are tons of
   dissonant notes, chromatic lines and chords, and rhythmic
   oddities.  Have fun and really work on the solo section.  It
   can do wonders for your arpeggio solo work.

ATONAL SECTION---This is the hardest part of the song to play. The rhythm and phrasing is very strange, so I strongly suggest really listening to the album for exact timings.

Then the big C chord and page does a solo over trey who plays these chords. It doesn't really matter what octave you play them in or which fingering you use as long as it is the chord. or something. C A/C# G Eb+ C/E F D/F# G E/G# Am Bmaj7 Am Ab C You basically do that chord phrase three times through for the piano solo. Then the guitar solo is over those same chords(page plays them this time of course). Solo to "Foam" by Trey Anastasio and Phish From: ericbe@microsoft.com (Eric Berman) Foam is a fairly straighforward solo to play, but it's a lot of fun nevertheless. The solo works very directly from the chords: if you look at the notes of the solo, it's really just arpeggiations that outline the chord changes. The beauty of the solo (IMHO) is how each chord leads into the next, and how the solo anticipates the chord change in such a natural way.
