Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

far out   Blur

Far Out by Blur, from their triff album "Parklife"

This is a (rough) transcription of the cool synth part, not 
the guitar part of this song, that has more than a passing 
resemblance to Syd Barrett's style. The main melody is done 
on the synth, so if you're playing solo this sounds a lot 
better than the guitar part. Also you need loads of really 
silly effects to do it well - or better still a guitar synth; 
sadly I have neither. This transcription was considerably 
aided by the sleeve insert on the album, which not only gives 
the lyrics but the chords as well. Nice one.
I haven't done the guitar part at the start either; trying to 
simulate a bongo roll a la Mission Impossible is a bit tricky 
on one guitar.

Anyway, the song's mainly based around a C Eb progression. 
The chorus is made up of 2 bars, an Ab Bb prog and an F prog 
(see the lyric section for the order they come in), and 
there's a little bridge part of Eb D after the first chorus.

                /---\ /---\ /---\ s your lot for now.
Oh - any corrections, improvements etc gratefully received.
John Howell,
