The One I Love


Song: The One I Love Artist: R.E.M. Album: Document
This song is really fun to play on a 6-string, even though it's really a 12-string song.
Gtr. 1: Rickenbacker 360/12, moderately distorted Gtr. 2: acoustic
The acoustic guitar just plays chords so I'll just put that.
The tab:
Gtr. 1 intro, chorus (Riff 1): e|--------------0--0-0------0--0-0-----| B|--------------5--3/5--0---5--3/5---0-| G|----------------------4------------4-| D|----------0--------------------------| Play 2x A|--------0----------------------------| E|-0--0-3------------------------------| "Fire..............................."
Gtr. 2 intro, verse part 1, chorus
Em D Em
Gtr. 1 verse part 1 (Riff 2): e|---0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---0-----0----0---0---0---| B|-----3-----3---------3-----3---------3-----3----3---3-----| G|-4-----4-----4---4-----4-----4---4-----4-----4----------4-| D|----------------------------------------------------------| Play 2x A|----------------------------------------------------------| E|----------------------------------------------------------| "This one goes out to the one I love....." "This one goes out to the one I left behind......" Gtr. 1 verse part 2 (Riff 3): e|--------3-3--2-2-2-3-2---0--0-----0-0-| B|-------3--3--3-3-3-3-3---1--1-----0-0-| G|------0---0--2-2-2-2-2---0--0-----0-0-| D|-----0----0--0-0-0-0-0---2--2-----2-2-| Play once A|----2-----2------------3-3--3-----2-2-| E|-3-3------3--------------------0--0-0-| "A simple prop to occupy my time" Gtr. 2 verse part 2:
G D C Em
Then repeat verse part 1 once.
Then the intro... I'll explain the structure later.
Gtr. 1 solo: e|----0-----0-0-----0---0-0--0---0---0-0-0-0-----------------------------| B|-0--3--0--5-3--0--3-0-5-3--5-0-3-0-5-3-5-3-0-------------------0-------| G|-4-----4-------4----4--------4---4---------4-2-0-------0---0-2-4-2-0---| D|-------------------------------------------------2-0-2---2-----------2-| A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------| E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
e|------------------0-| B|------------------0-| G|-2-0--------------0-| D|-----2-0-2--------2-| A|-----------0------2-| E|-------------3--0-0-|
The solo is played over an Em-D-Em progression on Gtr. 2.
The structure:
Intro (Riff 1 2x) Verse (Riff 2 2x, Riff 3 1x, Riff 2 1x) Chorus (Riff 1 2x) Verse Chorus Verse Chorus Solo Chorus 2x
