The Cat Empire – The Crowd tab
Band - Cat Empire Track - The Crowd Written - Harry Angus Scribed - Catch 22 This is one of the more simple songs by The Cat Empire seeing as it's based on only two chords. Those Chords being I and V. Key - Gmaj Time Signature - 4/4 The Song starts off with a rhodes piano theme that continues throughout the whole song and I the mean WHOLE song. No Bridge or any break. Even the Chorus is the same chord progression. But what's so amazing about it is their sense of timing and Rhythm. They keep completely in time with eachother throughout the whole piece, eventhough it's so slow. Cause it's harder to play slow than fast. Much harder. Anyway here are your chords - It goes basically like this throughout the whole song with rapping over the top. Here's one of the choruses. The melody is Tonal. G Dmin Lord unchain my hands G Dmin let me sing inside the crowded trams G Dmin let me dance among the traffic jams G Dmin we're going to sleep on the St Kilda sands And the verse is much the same thing except rapping. (Atonal) G |G |Dm| Dm| Throughout the whole song. The riff is below. Here's the Rhodes riff Unfortunately without Rhythm. But don't frown! Just listen to the recording and you'll get it. G D Bb B D G D Bb B D D A E F A D A E F A (The Bb to B and the E to F are grace notes. They are up the octave. So a Flat Ten and Ten)
