Repeat these sections as needed Of course it's always a good idea to listen to the song for the exact rhythm but this should be fairly close. ------ Lotus. | Am | C | G | F | | Am | C | G | F | Hey, hey, Hey, hey | Am | C | G | F | | Am | C | G | F | Am C G F I was hell, sarcastic silver swell, that day it rained Am C G F Tough spun, hard won, No, ocean flower aquarium Am C G F Badlands, give a hand, honey dipt, film flam Am C G F Hey hey, hey hey, that cat can walk like a big bad man, Dm Am Dm Am So happy to show us, I ate the lotus, Dm Am Em Dm Say haven't you noticed?

Use slides and vibrato at your own discretion. ---- Updated chords for Suspicion using basics from DJ Allen, with a slight variation on his use of G and Bb. I've tried G (320033) and G/Bb (x10033) and found it a nice option. You decide. Also added extra chords at the end of the chorus, which also form the repeat at the end of the song. I've only added the effected parts of the song here. Repeat througout as needed.

----- At my most beatiful - R.E.M. One of the many great songs from the new album, I just picked it out, believe it's correct. The bass notes on F/A and Bb/F sound a lot better if played on a real bass and/or a piano, but if you only have a guitar, I guess that's better then nothing...

---- THE APOLOGIST tabbed by miKe. (ericseis@hotmail.com) [second half of solo from Chris Lawrence] This is a cool song played mostly by jamming on Am (open or fifth fret). Just pile on the distortion and hit single or pairs of strings in the chord pretty much at random. As long as you keep the 'feel' of the song you can't go far wrong. Near the end of the song, as things lose what little definition they had, just attack the Am(V) and interject with little riffs and jams. Little Riffs:
e|--7-8b-7-5----5---- or e|--7-8-/11-- perhaps e|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---b|-----------8-(5)--- maybe b|----------- this b|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---

End riff: (this is the riff that gets played in the final 'bridge')g|------4--4-5d|--7--7------

[end on picking up through the open Am] SAD PROFESSOR Here's the correct version as played by Mike Mills on Rockpalast. Tuning - some kind of open D. E (bass string) A D A D D (treble string) Performance notes: the double tuning of the 'b' and the 'e' to get two 'd' notes gives a really ethnic kind of drone. Mike has strong hands - this song is not easy to play unless you're a barre master! Mix up and down strokes. Listen to the rhythm - these are the notes but they're tabbed wrong! verse structure: D G D A

----- Only 4 chords: D (open) A(barre) G(barre) F(barre) )(E-shaped barres) The transitions from A-G and G-A and A-F are usually slides. In the chorus the song skips two beats (after 'i started a chapter' and 'everybody hates a drunk') so be careful. If anything's wrong, correct it and curse me for being incompetent. sad professor VERSE: D G D A If we're talking about love, Then I have to tell you D G D A Dear readers: I'm not sure where I'm headed, I've gotten lost before PRE-CHORUS: G A F I've woke up stone drunk face down in the floor CHORUS: G A G D Late afternoon the house is hot G A G D I started a chapter G A G D G A G D Everyone hates a bore, Everybody hates a drunk VERSE: D G This may be a lip invention D A Professors muddled in their intent D G To try to rope in followers D A To float they're malcontent PRE-CHORUS: G A F As for this, reader, I'm already spent CHORUS: G A G D Late afternoon the house is hot G A G D I started a chapter G A G D G A G D Everyone hates a sad professor, I hate where I wound up BRIDGE: VERSE CHORDS VERSE CHORDS: Dear readers, my apologies I drifted in and out of sleep Long silence presents the tragedies of love Look the age, get afraid.

YOU'RE IN THE AIR Here is a tab for some bits of "You're In the Air" - probably one of my favourite tracks off of "Up", and therefore, the one no-one has transcribed yet. (If these tabs don't look like they make sense, it's because of the unequal spacing for letters in my e-mail program - in a plain text format (i.e. in Notepad or something like that), the number of dashes is fine!) Some of the guitar parts are swamped underneath keyboards and organs and other antiquated analogue noise, so I haven't got them (yet!). The main verse riff that accompanies "you wanted a challenge that's calling you higher" is something like this....
E-------------------|-----------------B-------------------|-----------------G-------------------|------------7-9--D---7-10-7----9-----|---7-10-7-9------A-0--------10---10--|-0---------------E-------------------|-----------------
(The two sections are split up so you can easily read them - it's not an attempt to use bars or anything musical!) This call and response pattern repeats throughout the verse until, "You say you want me..." which is then kinda blasted out by the organs and bass. The general chord pattern is, however....
E-3---3---0---0---3---0----0--------0--B-2---2---1---1---0---1----1--------1--G-3---3---0---0---0---2----2--------0--D-0---0---2---2---0---2----0--------2--A-X---X---3---3---2---0----2--------3--E-X---X---X---X---3---0----0--------0--
D / D / C / C / G / Am / Am w/B / C You may want to just arpeggio these chords loosely until someone knows what the actual pattern is. Then into verse two - "brighten the stars, the weather is lifting". Verse pattern is used again. The second chorus is the same until the end when there's a little solo bit (dead easy) which I think Peter plays on his electric sitar. It goes...
E--------------------------------------------B-----------------------------13-------------G--14-14-12-14-14-12-14-14-12----14-12-12-14- (last two notes performed
in a sweet hammer-on)D--------------------------------------------A--------------------------------------------E--------------------------------------------
This is repeated twice and then a final time, with a bit on the end.
E--------------------------------------------|---------B-----------------------------13-------------|---------G--14-14-12-14-14-12-14-14-12----14-12-12-14-|-7-9-9--- (more

This open A string then goes straight back into the verse pattern for verse three - "I want the stars to know they've won". Etcetera, etcetera. At the end, as Pete's doing his 'cer-azy' feedback, etc., there is an alternate bit to the verse pattern, which goes.

Lyrics: you wanted a challenge that's calling you higher I landed on my feet by crawling I remember standing alone trying to forget you idling I hate to admit that that's my reference point but there it is you say you want me I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air and I am breathing brighten the staars the weather is lifting the heavens love a love like this it's pulling you higher twist it and turn this around it lights from within it dribbles your chin now brings a smile I'm lost again I'm lost again I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air and I am breathing you I want the stars to know they've won if only to beguile the sky has opened up again in heaven reconciled I want you naked I want you wild I want the stars to know they win give me that smile just give it me just turn it on I'm lost again I'm what you found I'm upside down you're in the air I'm what you found I'm upside down you're in the air I'm what you found I'm upside down you're everywhere you're in the air and I am breathing you Chords from: Trygve Sandven Håland (trygve@bitcon.no) RIff from: Ross Pickford WALK UNAFRAID Intro (and outro) TAB:

(ericseis@hotmail.com) (N.B. ~~~ = hold note using e-bow.) Intro: First just tap and scratch around on the fifteenth(ish) fret, then
a|-------------------------------------------E|--5~6~~/11~10~~~~/5~6~~~/11~10~~/15~~~~
(this is all played on the bottom string with an e-bow, but lots of distortion should do the trick just as well.) Verses: The chords aren't actually played. In the verses, instead Peter just uses an e-bow and plays the root notes, i.e. (A) (F) (A) (F) for the Am F E|--5~~~~/1~~~~/5~~~~/1~~~~-- progression
and (D) (C) (D) (C) for the D CE|--10~~~~/8~~~~/10~~~~/8~~~~-- progression
Peter doesn't this all the time during the verses, sometimes he'll just kinda' slide up and down a string, making eerie noises, while the bass just thumps out: (A) (F) (A) E|--5---5---5-5--5---/1---1---1-1---1---/5- and so on. Chorus: The Em - G - D chords are played as normal in the chorus. And the intro riff twice to end. WHY NOT SMILE (Oxford American Version) From: David Wagner (wagner@mindspring.com) here are the chords and words to REM's new song from the oxford american magazine, "why not smile." pretty different from old REM guitar in that peter buck is fingerpicking and using new (or at least new to me) tricks with chords -- especially A6 (X02222). at some points, he'll go from A6 to an A, as if he's playing it like a "sus" chord. it sounds pretty good. listen to the song, you'll know what i mean. any questions/comments? email me -- David Wagner (wagner@mindspring.com) D D G A The concrete broke your fall D D G A6 To hear you speak of it D D G A I'd have done anything D D G A6 I would do anything G A D F#m I'd feel like a cartoon brick wall G A6 D To hear you speak of it G A D D You've been so sad, it makes me worry G A6 D D Why not smile? G A D D You've been sad for a while G A6 G A6 D F#m Why not smile? G A6 D D I would do anything G A D D To hear you speak of it G A6 D D Why not smile? G A D D You've been sad for a while G A G You've been sad for a while A6 D F#m G ... guitar fades out with same chords as organ comes in ---- Why Not Smile? Intro: The intro is synthesisers, but I've found some jingles which, though not right, make an okay sounding intro.

G F#m E you dearly wish the wind shift D C# E and greasy windows slide D C# E open for the parakeet D C Eb who's colored bitter lime. Em (riff) C (riff) open the window Am Bm D and lift into your dreams Em (riff) C (riff) Am D Ebm lately, baby, you can barely breathe. (chords same as above) a broken wrist, an accident you know that something's wrong you fold the leavings of your past no one knows you've gone. the sunspot flares of the early nineties light up your wings. and scan the shortwave radio it's tracking outer range. open the window and lift into your dreams baby, baby, you can start to breathe the tectonic dispatcher shifts to smooth the ocean floor and flattens out to warmer winds of brisbane's sunny shore. where buddhas tend to mending wrists a tea made from the leaves of eucalyptus fragrances and coriander seeds. open your window and lift into a dream baby, baby, baby starts to breathe open the window and lift into a dream baby, baby, baby starts to breathe you wake up in the morning to warm pacific breeze where means cats chew on licorice D C G#m and cannot climb the trees. end on some G#m riffs. notes...i'm open to suggestions as to what that last chord is. it's really cool, and it's definetly a chord not used anywhere else in the song. okay, i think that's it. ----- PARAKEET G F#m E you wake up in the morning G F#m E and fall out of your bed G F#m E mean cat eat parakeets D C B7 and this one's nearly dead. you dearly wish the wind shift and greasy windows slide open for the parakeet who's colored bitter lime.
