here's what you've got:

can't you see i need nothing too deep
(or something like that)
here's what i think it is:
F (xxx565) Faug5 (xxx665) Dm/F (xxx765) G (open)
can't you see i need nothing too deep
(Faug5:133221 or XXX665)

Here's the guitar solo from Suspicion... it's pretty heavily modulated
so expect me to be off on a few counts.

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.

HOPE

C

you want to go out friday
and you go forever
you know that it sounds childish
that you've dreamt of aligators
you hope that we are with you
and you hope you're recognized
you want to go forever
you see it in my eyes
F
I'm lost in the confusion
and it doesn't seem to matter
C
you really can't believe it
and you hope it's getting better

you want to trust the doctors
their procedure is the best
but the last try was a failure
and the intern was a mess
and they did the same to Matthew
and he bled 'til sunday night
they're saying don't be frightened
but you're weakened by the sight of it
F
you lock into a pattern
and you know that it's the last ditch
C
you're trying to see through it
and it doesn't make sense
F
but they're saying don't be frightened
and they're killing alligators
C
and they're hog-tied
and accepting of the struggle

you want to trust religion
and you know it's allegory
but the people who are followers
have written their own story
so you look up to the heavens
and you hope to see a spaceship
and it's something from your childhood
you're thinking don't be frightened

Em
you want to climb the ladder
you want to see forever
C
you want to go out friday
and you want to go forever
F
and you want to cross your dna
C
to cross your dna with something reptile
F
amd you're questioning the sciences
and questioning religion
C
you're looking like an idiot
and you no longer care
F
and you want to bridge the schism,
C
a built-in mechanism to protect you
F
and you're looking for salvation
and you're looking for deliverance
C
you're looking like an idiot
and you no longer care
you want to climb the ladder
you want to go forever
you want to go out friday
you want to go forever

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---

Am riff: (this is the odd organ backing)
g|--6-8--6/8/6--
d|--7-9--7/9/7--

SAD PROFESSOR

From: JamieWire@postmaster.co.uk

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!

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:

I've woke up stone drunk face down in the floor

CHORUS:
G A G D
Late afternoon the house is hot

VERSE:

This may be a lip invention

Professors muddled in their intent

To float they're malcontent

PRE-CHORUS:

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. The surface hazy with

attendant thoughts

PRECHORUS CHORDS:
A lazy eye metaphor on the rocks

CHORUS CHORDS:
Late afternoon the house is hot

I started a chapter. Everyone hates a bore

Everybody hates a drunk. Everyone hates a sad professor

I hate where I wound up, I hate where I wound up

Lyrics:

if we're talking about love
then I have to tell you
dear readers, I'm not sure where I'm headed.
I've gotten lost before.
I've woke up stone drunk
face down in the floor.

late afternoon the house is hot.
I started , I jumped up.
everyone hates a bore.
everyone hates a drunk.

this may be a lit invention
professors muddled in their intent
to try to rope in followers
to float their malcontent.
as for this reader,
I'm already spent.

late afternoon the house is hot.
I started , I jumped up.
everyone hates a sad professor.
I hate where I wound up.

dear readers, my apologies.
I'm drifting in and out of sleep.
long silence presents the tragedies
of love. note the age. get afraid.
the surface hazy with attendant thoughts.
a lazy eye metaphor on the rocks.

late afternoon the house is hot.
I started , I jumped up.
everyone hates a bore.
everyone hates a drunk.
everyone hates a sad professor.
I hate where I wound up.
I hate where I wound up.

YOU'RE IN THE AIR

From: Tom Davies (raoul2001@hotmail.com)

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
hammer-ons)
D--------------------------------------------|---------
A--------------------------------------------|-------0-
E--------------------------------------------|---------

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.

E--------------
B--------------
G--------------
D---7-10-7--9--
A-0--------10--
E--------------

And that's as much as I know! Please - someone with a sampler get rid of
all those organs and find out what the nice jangly bits are in the
chorus and the solo bits!


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
