              off the Coast to Coast album

This song ins't that tough as far as Steve Morse's guitar work goes. Thereare a few tricky parts but I got most of it.This is the intro, play it 2 times figure 1e-------------------------------t-p-h--------------------t-p--h----------|eb---------------------------------^-^---t-p-h---t-p--h-----^--^----------|bg*--------t-p-h--t-p-h--t-p-h---12-9-11---^-^-----^--^---15-12-13--------|gd*-t-p-h----^-^----^-^----^-^-----------12-9-11-15-12-13-----------------|da----^-^--12-7-9-11-7---12-9-10------------------------------------------|ae--12-5-7------------10--------------------------------------------------|e

This is the other cool tapping part, Steve and the bass mirror each other. figure 1be---------------------------------------------------|--------------------|eb--t-h-h-t-h-h--------------------------------------|--------------------|bg*---^-^---^-^-t-h-h-t-h-h-t-h-h-t-h-h-------------*|--------------------|gd*--9-4-7-9-4-5--^-^---^-^---^-^---^-^-t-h-h-t-h-h-*|--------------------|da---------------9-4-7-9-4-5-7-2-5-7-2-3--^-^---^-^--|--------------------|ae---------------------------------------7-2-5-7-2-3-|--------------------|e
Here the guitar hangs with the oper E and the bass does some stuff with touch harmonics bass touch harmonics e-----------------------------------------------------------------------e

Now the guitar gets to do some touch harmonics, on the album Steve does it so clean that you can hardly tell they are harmonics at all * touch harmonics are made by fretting a note in first position and then while holding your pick with your middle and thumb fingers and hitting the note as a harmonic with you index finger in second position. b+r / Guitar touch harmonics

Now the bass and guitar weave rhythems back and forth, its hard to explaneyou will just have to listen to the track your self.

Now there is the sick walking bass line and the guitar holds the E for a while
this part is kind of like a bridge, so thats what we?ll call it Bridgee------------------------------------------------------------------------|eb----/----------------------------------------------/--------------------|bg--11~~--11-9-12~~--11-9-------9-11-9~~-----------11--12~~~-9-11-9~~~~---|gd------------------------12~~-----------12-11-9~~------------------------|da------------------------------------------------------------------------|ae------------------------------------------------------------------------|e

This is where it gets faster.

Thats everything except the guitar solo, which I know but I don?t have the time to transcribe right now but I will in the near future. This is the order of the song Figure 1 figure1b bass touch harmonics guitar touch harmonics riff1 riff1b figure2 walking bass line bridge figure 3 figure 2 bass solo super shed riff guitar solo *figure 3 twice figure 1 figure 1b fade out * the guitar solo connects with figure 3, they?re on the same scale. I you have any questions or comments on this transcription E- mail me at al@leggett.k12.ca.us. Also any other Steve Morse fans out there? or better yet any Steve Morse fans with any trascriptions of either Steve Morse Band or Dixie Dregs, if so post them on the olga, or e-mail them to me.
