FLYING DUTCHMAN by Tori Amos Transcribed by Justin Solonynka firstname.lastname@example.org ------------------------------- Corrections and clarifications are completely welcomed and may be sent to email@example.com or to really-deep-thoughts. Please Note: Attempting to transcribe piano music into something readable on e-mail poses difficulties, but with a song like "Flying Dutchman" those difficulties are multiplied greatly. To my knowledge, the sheet music has not been published, and what appears here is what I have figured out by ear. I have attempted to make this as complete as I could while making it legible. In order to save my sanity, I have not transcribed the way (I think) Tori plays all of the F-C-G vamps, since she varies it almost every time. By experimenting with the chords I give for the "main vamp", you should be able to come reasonably close to the way the song sounds on the recording.
