Postby princessmidwest » Fri Mar 12, 2004 12:20 pm

Saturday March 20 @ The Klinic, Park St.

From Wisconsin: Free Pabst, Free Pabst & more free Pabst. 1 keg until its gone. So the five of you who show up are gonna be wasted.

From Milwaukee, Scarlett, GRRRL Rock that rocks like KISS but without the chest hair. check out their site at www.scarlettrocks.com

From Madison, The Familiars, members of the Motorz! and August Teens will be rocking you, Ace Frehley style.

From Plan 9 from Outer Space: Tangy, we will be playing the full Queensryche Operation Mindcrime album, followed by a Wings medley, sung in Swedish. You do not want to miss this one. Can JB pull of the GEOFFOMORPHOSIS? You be the judge.

We've got Kaya and Ken in our band... So no problem there...

Scarlett seem pretty tough. They wear big, black, hi-heeled boots. So they must be able to drink a band or two under the table.

I think the Familiars may win the contest. They got two Motorz in their band. And we all know the Motorz drink more beer than they breathe air.

So, sorry gang, I'm going with George Lynch to be the first man down.

It's actually not that tough...


First off, there's the intro riff which is also the chorus part:
repeat 4x
E-|-----------------------------------------------------||
B-|-----------------------------------------------------||
G-|-2-2--2-4-2-----2---5-4-----5---7-5-----7---5--4h5-7-||
D-|-2-2--3-3-3-----3---3-3-----3---5-5-----5---5------5-||
A-|-0-0--------0-0---0-----0-0---0-----0-0---0----------||
E-|-----------------------------------------------------||


After you go through that twice, however, there is this little bit of lead
that kinda copies the vocal line of the chorus:
E-|----------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
B-|-9b10r9---------------------------|-10--10----10-12--12-10-12-13--13-12-13-|
G-|--------9-10---10-b12r10--9h10----|--------12------------------------------|
D-|-------------------------------12-|----------------------------------------|
A-|----------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
E-|----------------------------------|----------------------------------------|


E-|------------------------|
B-|-12b15r12-12h13-10~~~~~~|
G-|------------------------|
D-|------------------------|
A-|------------------------|(rhythm guitar ends on A5)
E-|------------------------|

The A5 is sustained throughout the verses with a few changes like so:

A5
Last night the word came down
(A5) G5 C5 A5
Ten dead in Chinatown
(A5)
Innocent, their only crime
B5 slide to C5 A5
Was bein' in the wrong place at the wrong time
(A5)
"Too bad", people say,
(A5) G5 C5 A5
"What's wrong with the kids today?"
(A5)
I'll tell you right now they got nothin' to lose
G5 F5 A5
They're building EMPIRE.


Then this little lead bit: B-|--8b10-(10)-(10)--| (sustained indefinitely)

While the rhythm (once again) stays on A5. Do the whole verse bit
over again for the second verse.

Here's the pre-chorus with some lyrics below to help you keep up (repeat
the first section twice, then do the last bit right before the chorus):
E-|--------------------------------------------------------------||-------|
B-|-6---6-6-3--3-3--8--8-8-6--6-6--6--6-6-3--3-3-----------------||-------|
G-|-5---5-5-2--2-2--7--7-7-5--5-5--5--5-5-2--2-2---5--5-5-5--5-5-||-------|
D-|-0---0-0-0--0-0--0--0-0-0--0-0--0--0-0-0--0-0---5--5-5-5--5-5-||-3/5-5-|
A-|------------------------------------------------3--3-3-3--3-3-||-3/5-5-|
E-|--------------------------------------------------------------||-1/3-3-|
East side_________ Meets West side___ downtown_____.
No time_________ the walls_fall____ down_____.


After the second chorus, play this right before the bridge (the
"bridge" is what I call the part where that guy does the commentary on
law enforcement):
E-|-----------------------||
B-|-----------------------||
G-|-5-----5-----5-/7~~~~~-||
D-|-5--5--5--5--5-/7~~~~~-||
A-|-3--5--3--5--3-/5~~~~~-||
E-|----3-----3------------||

Then play this part clean (actually with chorus and slight delay...
but what the hell) during the commentary:
E-|-0---------------------------3-------------------||
B-|-3----3--3h5--3----5-6-5-3---3---5----5-6--5h6p5-||
G-|-2----3-------2----5-5-5-2---0---5----5-5--5-----||
D-|-0-----------------------------------------------||(repeat 4x)
A-|-------------------------------------------------||
E-|-------------------------------------------------||
(When the commentary gets to "By way of comparison..." a second guitar
should start chunging out an open D string with distortion and palm
muting.)

Then there's the solo and the chorus a few times until the end. There's
also a bit of lead stuff (guitar harmonization between Chris and Michael)
over the last couple of choruses; really nifty lead work...but I'm not
going to tab it!


Start practicing!
:roll:

A decision was made at Tangy rehearsal last night. We will no longer play Queensryche's "Operation Mindcrime" front to back. Instead, we've chosen Stryper's "To Hell With The Devil." One classic for another, in my book.

...bump...bump...bump...

WOW! "Rock You Like A Hurricane" didn't even last 12 hours!
Ah well.
Did I mention "Free Pabst!"
Ok, I said it.

I think they should play some Stryper, but only if it's the power ballad "Honestly" or the Xmas anthem "Reason for the Season".

I almost remember the last time I drank PBR. It wasn't pretty... I hurled in my car. Didn't remember doing it, so I didn't get it cleaned up. It was summer, my car was parked in the sun with the windows rolled up... ugghh. :oops:

Looks like I'm going to have to RSVP for this one. I think that Mrs. Motor may even tag along for the sweet, sensible guitar pop-rock.

Ken, can I request some songs from KISS-the Elder? Or maybe some Europe.

I can do you one better...Kingdom Come's "Get It On"!

I can't wait to hear The Familiars troll the Space Ace's back catalog.
