Green Grow the Rushes Words and music by Berry, Buck, Mills & Stipe
Transcribed by John Carroll (sorry no words)
The song opens with this, the chorus (3 times): E---0----------------0-----0------- B-----2-3-SL-5-5-0-----3-----3---3- SL - slide up G------------------4-----4-----4--- sl - slide down D---------------------------------- H - hammer on A-0-------------------------------- h - hammer off E----------------------------------
Then, after the third time through: E---2-----2-----2-2-2-2-2----------- B-----3-----3---3-3-3-3-3-0--------- G-4-----4-----4-4-4-4-4-4-0--------- D----------------------------------- A----------------------------------- E-----------------------------------
The chords are D Dsus D G Bm E with some picking thrown in (2 times): E-2-2-3-2-2-3-3-3-----------2-----------0-0---------0------------------ B-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------3-----------0---0---------0---------------- G-2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-----------4-----------1-----1-H-2-----0-------------- D-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------0-4-----------2------------------------------ A-----------2-2-2---0-H-2---2-2-2-2-2-2-2------------------------------ E-----------3-3-3-3---------------------0------------------------------
Then, in a 7ChineseBros kind of way, hit the D string in a steady rhythym and add the G-string notes appropriately (listen to the disk): E---------------------------------------------------------------------- B---------------------------------------------------------------------- G-14-14-14-12-11-11-11-12-12-12-11-9-9-9-11-11-11-9-7-7-7-H-9-h-7-4-7-7 D--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-0-0-0--0--0--0-0-0-0-0---------0-0-0 A---------------------------------------------------------------------- E---------------------------------------------------------------------- Go through this twice, then back to the chords, and then the chorus again. All the verses have this structure until the last one.
In the last verse, after the chords, it goes like:
E---------------------------------------------------------------------- B---------------------------------------------------------------------- G-14-14-14-12-11-11-11-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-14-14-14-12-11-11-11---- D--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0---- A---------------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------------- B---------7---7-------------------------------------------------------- G-12-11-7---7---14-14-14-12-11-11-11-12-12-12-11-9-9-9-12-11-9-11-9-7-- D--0--0-0---0----0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-0-0-0--0--0-0--0-0-0-- A---------------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------

E---------------------------------------------------------------------- B---------------------------------------------------------------------- G-11-9-11-9-7-9-9-9-11-9-7-12-11-9-11-9-7-9-9-9-11-9-7-12-11-9-11-9-7-- D--0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0--0--0-0--0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0--0--0-0--0-0-0-- A---------------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------
E---------------------------------------------------------------------- B---------------------------------------------------------------------- G-9-9-9-11-9-7-11-11-11-11-11-12-11-11--------------------------------- D-0-0-0--0-0-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--------------------------------- A---------------------------------------------------------------------- E----------------------------------------------------------------------
Whew! This probably isn't exactly right, but should give you a good start on figuring out where I screwed up!
Enjoy,
John
