- Planet of Sound: uses a drop D tuning, so tune yr low E to a D. From: scuw5@central.susx.ac.uk (Jonathan Eyre) The song uses only two chords - A5 and D5:
A5 D5e---------B---------G--2------D--2---0--A--0---0--D------0--
Start on A5, move to D5, and just alternate between the two. The solo is just a cheesy blues lick. You can actually buy a complete book of 'Trompe Le Monde' tab, but it's not very good. U-mass Pixies G F C D G G G G F C C C C D the chorus is slightly different: F G Bb C F C C F and all the chorus chords are quarter notes. 'Letter to Memphis' Transcribed by Mark Schnitzius (schnitzi@east.isx.com) Tune your guitar down a half step to play this one. You'll need to hit the low E chord. ---- E C#m A E C#m A E C#m A [Call this Rhythm Figure 1]
