Hangman Jury

Aerosmith


Date: Fri, 2 Feb 1996 16:33:20 -0500
This is the Unplugged version so it's a little different than the "Permanent Vacation" version. It's not that much different though so it shouldn't be that hard to figure out the PV version from the version posted here. I do not have all of the parts to this song, only a decent transcription of the intro and the part that follows it. Write me if you have any comments, questions, additions or corrections at meunier.1@osu.edu Have fun with it!
"Hangman Jury"(Tyler/Perry/Vallance)
Performed by Aerosmith at the Aerosmith Unplugged(1990) Originally from "Permanent Vacation"(1987) Transcribed off of "Aerosmith:Woodstock '94"(Octopus) Transcribed by Bryson Meunier

The lyrics are basically the same as in the "Permanent Vacation" sleeve with the exception of Steven's notable substitution of "talkin' bout the first time we got laid" for "talkin' bout the money that I ain't made" and "stand on the rock Joe Perry done stood" for "stand on the rock that Moses stood." When Steven starts with "If I could I surely would..." for the first time, the guitar plays what sounds like a variation of this riff: E---------------------------------------------------| B---------------------------------------------------| G---------------------------------------------------| D----------------------0-----------------3b-0----0--| A--x-x-7p5---x-x-5p3------3--x-x-3p2--3--------3----| E---------------------------------------------------|
You'll have to figure out the timing for this and the first part by listening to the music. I taped the Unplugged special back in 1990 but I didn't have it with me when I transcribed this. I may add/change something after I watch the tape. In the meantime, you're welcome to do the same. Write me with any questions.
symbols used in transcription: p = pull-off b = bend r = release x = make percussive sound with fretting hand

This next part is very similar to(if not exactly like) what Brad plays on the unplugged version of the song. On the PV album it's played on an electric guitar: riff 2- E------------------------------------------------------------| B--------1--------------3--------------5------------5------6-| G------0---(0---------0---(0---------0---(0------------------| D----0--------0)----3--------3)----5--------5)---------------| A--2--------------2--------------4---------------6------7----| D------------------------------------------------------------| At the end of this riff, just move the second chord up the neck.
I can't quite make out what Joe plays for this part yet. When I figure it out, I'll post it. In the meantime, if you know it, you're more than welcome to send it to me to post.
Before the next riff, both guitars play this(w/distortion):
E-------------------------------| B-------------------------------| G-------------------------------| D-------------------------------| A--7-7-9-7--7-7-9-7--7-7-9-7-7--| D--5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-5--| riff 3(electric guitar w/distortion)- E---------------------------------------------| B---------------------------------------------| G------9p7-------7p5--------5p4---------------| D--0h7-------0h5--------0h4------0------------| A-----------------------------------0h5--0h5--| D---------------------------------------------|
This next part I also based on Brad's unplugged performance. I think Joe plays similar chords. Correct me if I'm wrong.
riff 4- E--------------------------------------------------| B--------------------------------------------------| G--------------------------------------------------| D--------------------------------------------------| A--7-7-9-7---3-3-5-3--10-10-12-10--10-10-12-10-----| D--5-5-5-5---1-1-1-1---8--8--8--8---8--8--8--8-----|
You should be able to use these riffs(or slight variations of them) for the rest of the song. Have fun with it and write me with any comments, questions, corrections and additions.
