"Legend of Vertigo" by Waterdeep, from the "Sink or Swim" album Written by Lori Chaffer in the fall of 1996 Copyright © 1997 Hey Ruth Music (BMI) waterdeep.com waterdeep.net awakeningrecords.com Transcribed by T-rev http://www.t-rev.net OK, this is just my messy little solo rendition of the song. As far as I can tell, both guitars in the original seem to be standard-tuned. If you don't mind raising the key to E, however, it also works well "capo drop-D" (so that you get that low bass note but can still finger chords the same). INTRO (solo, I think it works well to just do the palm-muted rhythm guitar part the first time through): palm-muted: x54xxx x50xxx x54xxx x50xxx x55xxx x50xxx x55xxx x50xxx x54xxx x50xxx x22xxx x22xxx x00xxx ... full-chord: x04232 x00232 x04232 x00232 (hit 1st string only on beat 1) 320030 x00232 x00230 x0203x x0200x [E-2p0-----5-] x00232 D lick ---------------> [B-----3-----] VERSE (same as full-chord intro, then): 577655 (slide up to this) x98676 xT9787 x9EETx x7998x (T=tenth fret, E=eleventh) (or 244322 355433 244222 022000) REPEAT INTRO (no palm-muting) REPEAT VERSE LALALA: x24432 x54232 x24432 x54232 ... (just move your pinky) x1333x 355433 DREAMY: 355433 577655 799777 799777 577655 355433 ... 3xxxxx 2xxxxx 0xxxxx/5xxxxx INSTRUMENTAL VERSES WITH KAZOO/WHISTLE/HARMONICA SOLO, ETC. (the first time through after the dreamy bridge, you can do palm-muting like the intro) ENDS WITH CHAOS AND RANDOMNESS or however you want Transcribed 12/9/1999 by T-rev More tab available at http://www.t-rev.net ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ We believed it was time to lift off from the land of vertigo. The captain said "despite the wind and tide you will all have to row." Does that mean that the ones who do not wish to row won't wish to go? Ma was mawkish 'cause the house we'd left we'd surely never know again. We search for planets where the land won't be the kind you have to sow. We have left behind pernicious minds and fancy lies. oh we thought it so dreamy the way it spun our time everything was so easy if we hid behind the lies that made us seem heavenly that made us reel we were usually tripping till we couldn't feel but our souls were just dripping out all that was real thank God i get to go away from vertigo.
