Screamager   Therapy









Therapy? - Screamager

Transcribed by Tim Davis (davist@cs.man.ac.uk) from the mini-album
"Hats Off To The Insane".

Here's the full, entire, proper version of the song. Everyone seems to
have different ideas about how the first riff (and the rest) goes but
this definitely sounds right when played along with the record. I also
watched a video of them live to work out bits of it so the positions
should be almost exactly correct.
 Key:
     . - above notes indicates a staccato (short, abrupt) note
     b - bend note up to one shown
     r - release bend to note shown or to original note if none given
         (I find it's easier and sounds better if you play the bends 
          with the tremolo instead)
     h - hammer on
  P.M. - palm mute the indicated notes (place edge of palm of right hand
         on the strings at the bridge)

     |--     --|  repeat section between the markers.
     |*-     -*|  ie. - play it twice
     |--     --|      - or, if there are lyrics underneath,
     |--     --|        repeat enough times for those.
     |*-     -*|
     |-- ... --|

Tab for SCREAMAGER by THERAPY?
from SHORTSHARPSHOCK EP, HATS OFF...MLP, TROUBLEGUM LP (forthcoming)

This song is basically made out of three bits, which are as follows...
1: THE CRUNCHY CHORD BIT

This is at the beginning, and appears throughout the song. It is..

F#5 F#5 F#5 D5 D5 D5 F#5 F#5 F#5 D5 D5 D5 E5 E5 E5

(the E5s are rooted on the A string)
2: THE WIBBLY RIFF BIT

This is the riff which goes on thru the chorus...

A--------------------------0-----------7-----------
D--4---7-6-7---0---7-6-7-------7-6-7-------9-7-6---  
3: THE WHINING RIFF BIT

This is the other riff, which leads into the chorus...

B--7---10---7---10-12 (all with a bit of vibrato)

If you've got a copy of the record (and you should have) then you'll
have no trouble putting these bits together to make them sound right.

Jon Eyre 1994 All praise be to Andy Cairns' beard. Hurrah!
More Therapy? Tab realsoonquick. And Jesus Lizard.


Well this is more or less THERAPY?'s SCREWMAGER TURN .. there are 2 Riffs
missing (signed as ? and ?2) that I couldn't hear out .. I hope that you
although enjoy that Stuff
