Mayonaise - Transcribed by Jon Powell
This song is fairly easy as it only has a few chord progressions. On the recording, the tuning is down a half step. I'm going to show it as I play it normally, in B major.
The first riff is clean. play this rhythm twice.

The x's across the board represent the beautifully innovative feedback played there. This is accomplished by having your amp turned pretty loud; I have a 40 watt amp, and this usually works with the volume at 4 or higher, gain all the way up. The amp should be at about the same height as the pickups, or you'll have to duck down until they are. Stand about one foot away from the amp and mute all the strings with your picking hand. Try not to cover up the pickups, since this might lessen the effect. You should hear a high-pitched shriek from your amp that sounds close to that on the tape. Work with your pickups until you get a good sound, Single coil pickups work better than humbuckers, especially the middle single coil. It also helps if the tone control on your guitar is all the way up. Two guitars doing this at the same time will produce a good harmony like on the tape. Practice this effect using different distances away from the amp. It should change pitch as you move.
For the second verse, play Rhy. Fig #1 twice, and the second time, play Riff#1 after that, play this twice Rhy.

Here are the lyrics
Fool enough to almost be it Cool enough to not quite see it, doomed Pick your pocket full of sorrow And run away with me tommorow, gone We'll try to ease the pain, somehow Feel the same way No one knows where our secrets go I'll send my heart to all my dearies When your love is so, so dreary, dream I'm rumored to the the straight and narrow While the harlots of my perils scream And I fail, but when I can, I will Try to understand that when I can, I will Mother weeped the years I'm missing All the time can't be given back Shut my mouth and strike the demons Cursed you and your reasons Out of hand and out of season Out of love and out of feeling So bad but when I can, I will Words define the plans But when I can, I will Fool enough to almost be it Cool enough to not quite see it Told enough to always feel it Always old I always feel it No more promise, no more sorrow No longer will I follow Can anybody hear me, I just want to be me When I can, I will Try to understand that when I can, I will
That complete the transcription to Mayonaise, I hope it is useful. If you have any questions call me up. Write Jon at cthrall@titan.ucs.umass.edu, which is my (Craig Thrall) account.
