Drive -REM
~~~~~
From: "Andrew N. Westmeyer" <aw36+@andrew.cmu.edu>
What's going down? The tab for this song was in a recent Guitar
World(Feb '93). The intro riff goes like this:
 
 -----1------1------1---1-----
 --------3------3-----------2-
 ---2-----------------0-------
 0---------0------0-------2---
 -----------------------------
 -----------------------------

This is done three times total, and then a similie for the fourth time.
For the chord part, it goes:
Hey kids...
[Dm]  
Nobody...
[G]  
And so on. The next chord part is something like:
(I forget the lyrics)
[F]  
[Am]Em (for a measure and a half)
G (for the half measure)
The electric guitar part consists of D and C barre chords (ie, x5777x
and x3555x). Hope this helps.
The riff the fourth time through goes like this:
 
 ------1------1----------------
 ---------3----------3---3---3-
 ----2-----------2---0h2p0---0-
 -0---------0------0-------2---
 ------------------------------
 ------------------------------

h means hammer-on and p means pull-off. This part was rather tricky to
learn. If I ever remember to bring the magazine to the clusters, I'll
post the rest of the song. In the mean time, I also remember this (the
electric part):
 
 -5-------------
 ----8--6-------
 ----------7----
 ---------------
 ---------------
 ---------------

Then a C barre chord. G string:--5h7---, then another C barre chord.
Then the electric part above, only just the first three notes, then a D
barre chord. Next, B string: --6---, then the D again. This is basicly
the entire electric guitar part.

Verse:
Chords are; Dm Dm G G Dm Dm G G
Chorus:
Chords are; Fm Em G G Em Em G G
****From: jdell@nefertiti.mit.edu (John Ellithorpe)
I actually got the riff from Guitar World(?) maybe a month ago or more. It's
mostly just picking the Dm chord:
Riff 1 Riff 2
 
 ||----1---1---1---1------ ||----1---1--------------
 ||-----3---3---------3--- x3, I think, then ||-----3---3---3-3-3-----
 ||--------------0-------- ||-------------0h2-0-----
 ||--0---0---0------0----- ||--0---0---0--------3---
 ||----------------------- ||-----------------------
 ||----------------------- ||-----------------------

Then it goes into the verse, I don't have the lyrics but this is basically it:
Dm G Riff 1 Riff 2 (x4)
Then it goes into,
[F] [Am] [G] [G]  
Then it has
Em Em Riff 1 Riff 2
Also, Bucks electric guitar comes in with,
 
 ||--5------------------5-------------------
 ||-----8--6-----5/6-------8--6-------------
 ||-----------7------7-----------7--5/7--7--
 ||-----------------------------------------
 ||-----------------------------------------
 ||-----------------------------------------
