21st Century Schizoid Man

	   
I used 3 versions of Schizoid Man to transcribe this: 
 
  1) Studio : _In the Court of the Crimson King_ 
 
  2) Live : Providence disc from the amazing new _Great Deceiver_ boxed set 
                (also the same version originally released on _USA_) 
 
  3) Live : My *All time Favourite* version from _Earthbound_ 
 
NOTES:  1) Standard bar chords unless otherwise noted 
 
        2) This transcription isn't rigidly Beginning -> End.  I'll write it by 
                section then assume knowledge of repeating parts... 
 
First the chords: 
The main chordal riff in 4/4: 
1   2       3     4|1  2  3  4 
C   A# C D# A#  C  |F   F#   G 
 
Alternate used before vox: 
1   2       3     4  1  2    3 4 
C   A# C D# F   G   |13---14---15-| 
                    |16*--17*--18*| *Bend each 1 whole step  
                    |-------------| 
                    |-------------| 
                    |-------------| 
                    |-------------| 
 
Vocal Section Chord from hell: 
  Interpretations of this chord are legendary, this one sounded best to me: 
                x 
                8 
                8 
                10 
                10 
                8 
                Cat's foot etc... 
 
Exit main chordal riff: 
F F# G : Repeat 6 times, increase tempo then...

|---11-12----11-12----11-12-11-10----| Vibrato and Feedback like a Madman  
|---------------------------------13-\-/-\->then you're on your own...  
|------------------------------------| ...for this is the Solo from Hell :)  
|------------------------------------|------------------------------------| 
 
..And speaking of hell, here are the inhumanly fast parts... 
 
Fast1* 
|--------------------------------------------3-|  
|------------------------/tri\-------3---3-6---|  
|----------------3---3-5-3-5-3---3-5---5-------|  
|--------3---3-5---5-----------5---------------|  
|--1-3-5---5-----------------------------------|  
|3---------------------------------------------| 
*The rhythm is correct so if you play the triplet at the indicated time 
  (and allow 1 note length) you should be dead on. 
   The notes themselves are pretty close but open to interpretation... 
 
Fast2** 
|--------------------------------------------3---------------|  
|------------------------/tri\-------3---3-6---2-1-----------|  
|----------------3---3-5-3-5-3---3-5---5------------3-0------|  
|--------3---3-5---5-----------5-------------------------3-0-|  
|--1-3-5---5-------------------------------------------------|  
|3-----------------------------------------------------------|  
**Same as * except last 7 notes are definitely correct 
 
Fast3 
|------------------------------------------|  
|------------------------------------------|  
|--------3-0-7-0-5-0-3-0-5-0-7-0-----------|  
|--1-3-5-------------------------3-0-------|  
|3-----------------------------------4-3-1-|  
|------------------------------------------| 
 
Mute1 
|------------------------------------------|  
|------------------------------------------|  
|------------------------------------------|  
|--------3-0-7-0-5-0-3-0-5-0-7-0-3-0-------|  
|--1-3-5-----------------------------4-3-1-|  
|3-----------------------------------------| 
 
Stop & Go 
|----1-----1-|----1-------|----1-3-------------|----1-3-------------|  
|1-3---1-3---|1-3---3-2-1-|1-3-----2-1---------|1-3-----2-1---------|  
|------------|------------|------------3-0-----|------------3-0-----|  
|------------|------------|----------------3-0-|----------------3-0-|  
|------------|------------|--------------------|--------------------|  
|------------|------------|--------------------|--------------------| 
 
The order for the inhumanly fast section: 
  Fast1, Fast2, Fast3, Fast1, Stop&Go, Mute1, Mute1, Fast3, Fast1, Stop&Go 
 
Then back into the unison runs, vox, and opening chords.  By the time the song 
 ends you should have either achieved enlightenment or neurotic breakdown :) 
  One thing's for sure, if you make it all the way through, you're well on 
   your way to becoming a 21st Century Schizoid Man...Have fun!
