Wounded Bird

Crosby Stills and Nash

The Black Crowes Song Title: Wounded Bird TBC Original? Yes Written By: Chris and Rich Robinson Recording Session: Warpaint Record: Warpaint Live Debut: 03/02/2008 Shows: 45 times played live Notes: This song was recorded in July, 2007 at Allaire Studios, Shokan, NY. It was by Paul Stacey and The Black Crowes.
“Rich came up with that riff and it all fell out from that. It's a song about loss but the realization that nothing can really kill you. This life is an experience and we can't from any of it. It's kind of harsh but it definitely represents letting go. It's the Taoist rock song on the album.” - Chris Robinson

Tuning: DGDGBD (Open G)
Unlike I first thought, this one is in fact in open G (well, Rich plays it live in that and some of the positions do make more sense that way, so I'm going to assume it was in open G as well). This tab contains the rhythm guitar only, and is not transcribed for note.

For the second chorus, cut out the last two measures and continue straight into the interlude...
Interlude: | First Ending | Second Ending |-------------------| |----------------2--| |--------2-------2--| x4 |----2-4---4-2-4-2--| |--2-------------2--| |-------------------|
This whole figure is played four times. The last time through continue on to the second It's hard to tell what Rich is doing here because the sound gets a little muddy on the so this will suffice. After the interlude, the chorus is repeated, and Rich repeatedly the chords over the "set your mind to fly" lyrics and Luther's slide lines.
