Like a fly in the ointment, love makes my flesh creep
Love gets me hot and bothered,
It's just a reward I never reap
So I'm lying on the lawn babe, hot sun overhead
Waitning for the breath of inspiration, to carry me away instead
And without a doubt, without a doubt
I'm working, or precious little, I'm playing, second fiddle
I've been living on broken promises, living on guarentees
And sometimes at night when the moon is bright
You can see me down on my knees
Still I'm looking for those home truths
An offer I can't refuse, a leap in the dark
A touch and go I got nothing left to lose
But without a doubt, without a doubt
I'm learning, back where I started
I'm learning, I'm broken hearted but without a doubt
I'm working, for precious little, I'm playing, second fiddle
And I'm down and out but without a doubt
I'm learning, back where I started
I'm learning, I'm broken hearted but without a doubt

WHOAH!

Go Camus! You rock!

I've just played through all of these (except My Mistake, which is more piano based than guitar), and they all seem pretty damn good. I'll have to play them a bit more before I can offer any opinions or anything, but man... Without a Doubt is a lot of fun to play... and it's good to finally have that Sugar and Spice tab I've been pestering you about.

Great work! And keep them coming!
Glad you liked Sugar and Spice, that was a bitch to work out. This part:

2/4 A | 6/4 E | 2/4 A | 6/4 E
2/4 A | 6/4 E | 2/4 E | 4/4 C#m
E | 3/4 F#m7 | G#m7 | 5/4 B7sus4
3/4 B7sus4 | G#6/A# | % | % |

particularly those last two chords was a right pain. In the end I looped those last two chords and had to sing each individual note to work the sucker out. I think they're right. I don't have any guitar fingerings for those chords, they're very jazzy sounding chords. The rest were all pretty easy, just had to play through them to make sure I had them right.

Jamboree is coming, I think BWiG will be quite surprised by how simple it is. Only got that, Crosswords and Nice To Know (the forgotten unsung classic from Dizrythmia IMHO) to go. Then FRENZY.

Hey, I find it frustrating to play... for some unknown reason, I find it highly unnatural to alternate between 2/4 and 6/4. Trust Phil to go nuts with the time signatures.

But seriously, from what I've seen of your transcriptions, Sugar and Spice is certainly a lot more complicated than the rest of the songs on the album.

And once again, good job! I'm going to play these songs again today, and really try and get a grip on them. And yes, you should expect all sorts of questions in PM from me. You have been warned.... *dramatic music*

Oh yeah, and if I get the time, I might try and transcribe some of the lead bits of the songs as well and post them.

And Nice to Know is a great song.
As soon as I played the first couple of chords of Charlie I thought, yep, that's it. Superb.

My only problem is I can't sing it very well. For a start I'm not Tim Finn. I can never get 'For Heaven's sake, wake up Charlie' right. I must try to work out the notes on the guitar, then try to sing'em.

But now I want Dirty Creature, Never Ceases, I Hope I Never, and so on and on. I've found Leaky Boat tabs on the internet, but not many others.

Will Camus provide all goodies in due course? But in how long of a due course?
Camus is only human, but yes the plan is to do them all. As Sir Humphrey Appleby was fond of saying we will see them at the appropriate juncture, in the fullness of time.

Charlie is a hard song to sing, it's very high.

Sugar and Spice was by far the most complicated song on the album, though Crosswords isn't simple either.
Ooh boy, I missed this thread! Damned travel...

Camus I await Jamboree with watering mouth... I hope it doesn't make me look stupid in its simplicity Smiler

Sugar and Spice, christ, them be wierd chords... Tops on that one Smiler

I didn't realise Phil had written that one... I thought Jamboree was his only contribution...

Thanks mate Smiler That poor Dalek in Dr. Who, I was almost crying, very good episode, though I missed last weeks Frowner

Damn straight about Nice to Know, great solo from Neil...

Without A Doubt'd still have to be me fave from the album...

Funny how Tim uses the same "D | Em9 | Gmaj7/B | % |" progression as in "Angels Heap"... He must like it (I love it!)
Weird, I posted the tab of Nice To Know just before I went away, and it's not here now. You'll all have to wait till I get home Razzer

Discovered new appreciation for Crosswords, very fast moving chords in the chorus.

BWiG, Jamboree will be a very piano orientated tab I'm afraid, but a lot of it is just D and E.

Woohoo, finally 666 posts mwhahahahaha

Camus have you considered going on The Einstein Factor as an expert on SPlit Enz? Don't win anything except a warm glow of achievement, but given some of the more obscure (and boring) topics that people come up with, you'd be a shoe in.

Big Grin

I'd like to see that.
Oh be still my beating heart...on what topic Camus?

Albert Camus?

Don't you have to have a few specialities so you have a new topic when you get through a round? So, Albert Camus, Split Enz, Dr Who. (I bet it's Dr Who).

Sorry we're going a bit off topic here, folks, but you must admit the possibility of a Frenz getting onto The Einstein Factor, coolest quiz show on Australian TV, is worth a momentary lapse of forum e-tiquette.

Cool
Oh missed the Dr Who guy. OK Camus, you're off the hook. Gershwin is still pretty cool though. As is the Duke of course. No, you don't sound like a sad git at all. How can you be a sad git and love Split Enz anyway?

OK, back to topic, thanks folks for forbearance on this deviation.
Since I'm bored, I thought I'd throw a small contribution in as well: Neil's solo in Nice to Know

Do the whole thing twice, and that's it.

It's not particularly nice looking, since I didn't bother to space everything properly and arrange into bars, but I'll probably do it at a later date.

Actually, I'd really appreciate it if anyone could comment on its accuracy. I'm not totally sure if the open notes are right, either.
Haha, the new board screwed poor Zombos' tab...

Yeah, I'm just gonna go ahead and bump this thread... There is that damn part in Jamboree (after the intro, but before Tim starts singing the D and E verses) where Eddie is doing the coolest piano part... It sounds quite simple, and it's just him with some synths in the background... It was the part played at the very beginning of the Dizrythmia Enzology...

Camus! Please! I need inversions for that thing! I have no idea what's going on...
Oh alright Smiler I did work it out but for some strange reason I can't access the forum from home, it keeps on saying the page can't be displayed. That E chord during the verse is weird as well, it has that little riff at the end which i think off the top of my head is Esus4 add b9, though I'll have to check. The chords Tim plays on piano at the beginning are quite clever, that's the bit I presume you're talking about, the bit after the piano intro, with the rhythmic descending piano chords and some nice synth lines? That's Tim on piano.
Realised I never got around to putting Crosswords and Jamboree up in this thread, here's Crosswords:

F# in the intro, hammer from E to F#, same with held F# at the end of intro, hammer first F# in bar from E to F# (listen to the recording). The chorus chords were worked out from Tim Finn's home demo of Crosswords.
Hey Matinee Idyll, did you work out Jamboree in the end? In case not, here it is at long last.....

BTW, do you know what happened to Zombos? He seems to have disappeared, I haven't heard from him for ages....

Ok, here it is, the one people seem to have been waiting for. It's hard to present this one, it's really a piano based song for most of it, I strongly suggest to listen to the recording when looking at this tab. Things in [] brackets are single notes, lh and rh stnad for left hand and right hand. This was the least complicated way I could think of presenting this.

Jamboree

PRE INTRO (free time)

Esus2(maj7) (For piano lh is [E B E rolled] rh is [E D# B F#]

Roll up, roll up, to the jamboree

rh: [E D# B F#] octave higher
lh: [E F# B C# E A G# F# B] in octaves

Roll up, roll up, to the jamboree

rh: [E D# B F#]

Keeping a lonely vigil while the girls all have a ball
The stories come out thick and fast, long, short and tall
There's Frank du Preze on the flying trapeze
Finally come down to earth
Goold ol' Chris the contortionist is bent if not worse
Dear Ol' Merle the striptease girl, do anything for kicks
And the ol' Magician has disappeared, still up to his old tricks
Well the gag man's been gagged\And the straight man's gone straight
The mime artiste too clever for words
And the M/C's still late

Notes:

Tricky chords are spelt out as lowest note to highest note in brackets below
The pre-intro, listen to the recording and play along with it, it should become clear...
The intro, the first two chords could be named a number of things, F#half diminished for example for the first and Ebdim for the second.

F#m7 b5/E:
rh [F# A (C) E]
lh [E ocatve]

F#dim/Eb:
rh [F# A (C) Eb]
lh [Eb octave]

Esus4(add b9)
[B F A] to resolve to:

E [B E G#]

I should think Camus would have quite a few topics to choose from. Firstly there would be Misty Moore Pursuite Survival Techniques, The uncanny similarities between certain Led Zepplin & Split Enz songs (with keyboard demonstration!), erm Aunty Jack & the effects of Woolongong & Dapto on the Australian comedic psyche, The influence & effects of existentialism on The Australian Postal System between 1970 & 1982 (with philatelic examples), & White Elephants & Synthesiser Programing! Eeker

Nice work on Crosswords by the way, but doesn't tabs mean number of the fret, with number of the finger on the number of the string? Not to worry, i'll fish my chord book out of my guitar case. It's right next to my Ac/Dc Song Tab For Dummies. Confused
I know all about Something So Finn, and unfortunately nearly every one of those tabs is wrong. Ranging from slightly wrong (as in one to three chords) or totally wrong.

There's a thread on here somewhere where I went on about it in the past.
