Silence

Tea Party


SILENCE - BY THE TEA PARTY From the album The Edges of Twilight on EMI records Transcribed by Mark Wiebe
Tuned from low to high D G D G B D
This song has some other weird instruments in it but this is how I play the guitar part (he probably uses a twelve string on the album.) This transcription is probably not to accurate and you'll have to listen to the song for the timing but I think it should give you the basic idea.

Here's something I've been working at for a little while now.

Song: SILENCE Artist: THE TEA PARTY Tabbed by: KRIST SMITH ----------------------- This song uses another cool tuning (I think it's something like open Gsus2/D or something): e tuned down to d B tuned down to A G left the same D left the same A tuned down to G E tuned down to D
There are a lot of instruments in on this, so I'm VERY likely wrong. This is just MY interpretation. The timing is probably wrong (I'm not that good). It's just four dashes (-) for every quarter note. This is just a guess, but I think it's in 4/4 timing (please correct me).

(INTRO riff again)
VERSE riff over In the springtime I'm awakened as my spirits sieze the night
Heaven help me I'm foresaken I should rest here for a while
BRIDGE: (For the beginning, just improvise by playing assorted notes on the B (A) string and the two lower ones open [like the verse], but remember to keep them in scale-just fool around with it).

VERSE 1 again
INTRO riff twice over - In silence In silence silence!
------- Well, that's my interpretation. Corrections/lyrics are requested. Anyone want to take the time to type out the lyrics of the rest of the songs from the CD liner? (I don't have it)
SILENCE by THE TEA PARTY
Here are the lyrics (please append to SILENCE.TAB by Krist Smith) :
Silent spirit walks before me With her beauty and with her eyes Heaven help me I feel I'm fading I should be rest here For a while
In the dreamtime I'm awakened As my senses seize the night Heaven help me I'm forsaken I should rest here For a while
And lie in the bed you've made ophelia Dry are the lips that lost their taste of love Drown in the waters that would give you life Cry as this lamentation thrusts its knife
In silence In silence SILENCE
