Here's all the riffs from Remainder the Black Dog
27. Sep 2011 at 00:11
 
Haven't bothered with the occasional solos, but they're mostly processed and sparse, and pretty easy to figure out!
 
The main theme is on piano obviously, but it's fun to play along with. 15/8
 
Code:
E||-----------------------------------------------|
B||-----------------------------------------------|
G||--------------------------------4-----7-----9--|
D||-----6--5-----8--7-----7--5--------7-----9-----|
A||--7--------7--------7--------7-----------------|
E||-----------------------------------------------| 


 
Then the guitar comes in. Still 15/8:
Code:
-------------------------|-----------------------|
-------------------------|-----------------------|
-------------------------|-----------------------|
-------------------------|-----------------------|
-------------5-----------|-------5---------------|
--0-----6---------5------|--4---------3-----1----|
 


 
The monster switches to 4/4:
Code:
----------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|---------------------------------|
|-0-2-1-0-4-3-1-6-5-3-5-3-1-4-2-1-| 


 
There's a fill with no guitar. If you want to play along, the bass notes are G, F#, E, D, C and G/B
 
Then comes the switch to 7/8:
Code:
-------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|--------7----------7----|--------7----------7----|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|--------5----------5----|--------5----------5----|
|--0--0-----0-0--0-----0-|--0--0-----0-0--0-----0-| 


 
Then the Cardiacs-type riff. First bar is 7/8, second is 5/8:
Code:
|------------------------|------------------|
|------------------------|------------------|
|------------------------|------------------|
|-----7----------3-------|-----3----------2-|
|--------5----------1----|--------4---------|
|--5--------0-1--------0-|--4--------0-2----| 


 
Next one is all 7/8:
Code:
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|-----6----------6-------|-----6----------6-------|
|--0----7--0--0----7--0--|--0----7--0--0----7--0--| 


 
The last one... well... good luck. The second section isn't how it's played, but if you're playing to it it's pretty much to only way to keep in time. Gotta be on your toes counting the 7/8:
Code:
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|------------------------|------------------------|
|-----8----------8-------|-----8----------8-------|
|-------7----------7-----|-------7----------7-----|
|--0-------0--0-------0--|--0-------0--0-------0--|


-----9------9-------9------9----|-----9------9-------9------9----||
-------11-----11------11-----11-|-------11-----11------11-----11-||
----------9--------------9------|----------9--------------9------||
--------------------------------|--------------------------------||
--------------------------------|--------------------------------||
--0--------------0--------------|--0--------------0--------------||
 


 
...and that's just about everything in the entire piece. Wonderful song. Pretty jumbled, I admit. But it's a start and once you've got it down it's REALLY enjoyable to jam to! Wink

Thanks for posting that. I actually just tabbed the piano two days ago in a way that allows for more of a legato style:
 
-----------------------------0-
---------------------0-----0---
-----0-----------0-------7-----
---6-----8-7---7-------7-------
-7-----7-----7-----7-----------
-------------------------------

 
and with the left hand joining on the piano:
 
-----------------------------0-
---------------------0-----0---
-----0-----------0-------7-----
---6-----8-7---7-------7-------
-7-----7-----7-----7-----------
-0-------------8-------7-------
 
-----------------------------0-
---------------------0---3-----
-----0-----------0-----2---4---
---6-----8-7---7---------------
-7-----7-----7-----7-----------
-5-------------3-------1-------

Yes, it's the first figure I transcribed. Do you want the notes?

Please, if it's not too much trouble.

Well, I don't have a trascription but... it's in 15/8, each note is the same length, let's say / means go up, \ is go down and the notes are:
 
E / G# \ G \ E / A# \ A \ E / A \ G \ E / B \ A / D \ B / E
 
can you work with that? And then with the bass later on it's (play the first E in the bass an octave below the first E in the main figure):
 
E / G# \ G \ E / A# \ A \ E / A \ G \ E / B \ A / D \ B / E
E ------------ / --------------- C ----- \ ------ B
 
E / G# \ G \ E / A# \ A \ E / A \ G \ E / B \ A / D \ B / E
A ------------ \ --------------- G ----- \ ------ F
