Foreword

 

 

I must say a great big thank-you to Swervedriver, Adam Franklin, and Toshack Highway. Your music has brought me more joy than any other artist(s) I can think of.

 

This collection was created without the assistance or permission of any of the original musicians. I cannot guarantee the accuracy of these musical adaptations. They were created by listening and watching the artists live, on several occasions, and were greatly assisted by some video bootlegs (thank-you to all videographers that like to film the fret board!).

 

Most of the songs are adaptations of two concert bootlegs made in 2000 and 2001, of Adam Franklin playing acoustic guitar solo. However, there are a couple of songs that are from Adam playing electric guitar solo, and at least one adaptation of an album version of a song. The solo versions often vary greatly from the band version, so beware.

Adam’s Favourite Chords

 

This is a summary of some of the most common chords used in the songs within this document. The fingering given is the common variety, but you sometimes may want to use alternate fingering to make certain chord changes easier.

Tab Nomenclature

 

In this section I describe the nomenclature I will be using to tab sections of the songs within. Most of what I am using is fairly standard I believe, but just to be sure, here goes:

 

The 6 strings of the guitar are indicated with lines as below, with the topmost line corresponding to the smallest (highest pitch) string.

 

1)     The tuning of each string is indicated at the far left of each line.

2)     Vertical lines indicate bars, although I often do not show every bar.

3)     The beat is indicated underneath the tab. I tried to accurately show rhythm wherever possible.

4)     I will often mark the underlying chord above the tab.

5)     A double line and colon marks a repeated section, colon to the right of the double lines marks the start, colon to the left of the double lines marks the end.

6)     Lyrics are written underneath the tab.

7)     A number on a string indicates which fret you should be holding down for that string.

8)     Hammer down is indicated by an “h”, for example 0h2 means that you pick the indicated string in the open position, and then hammer your finger onto the second fret. The opposite, a pull off, is indicated with a “p”.

9)     Capo. Adam uses a Capo frequently. Whenever this is the case, I indicate in the notes. However, I use the standard chord names and tab fingering relative to the Capo. (So Capo on 2nd Fret, A chord, is actually a B chord)

99th Dream (Swervedriver)

 

This is probably one of the hardest songs to play, and I do not have the picked parts quite right, but it sounds ok, and is really fun to play.

 

General Notes:

Standard Tuning, Capo on the 7th Fret. Adapted from an in store show at Soundscapes in Toronto. The song is in 4/4 time, but there are a lot of triplets, where each beat is broken into three evenly spaced notes, so I write an entire bar as: 1 2 3 2 2 3 3 2 3 4 2 3.

Verse:

 

This is the same as the first verse.

 

   Somewhere up in the sky

   The Hindenburg still flies

   You're still flying from the night before

   Last night the big score

   As we lie half in traction

   And in stereo start to dream

   Architecture, nature, alcohol

   Space travel, rock n roll

Only sing the words on the last two repeats.

Chorus:

 

This is the same as the first chorus, but only sing the last “Love your ways”

 


Verse:

 

This is also the same as the first verse.

 

   Shop windows at night

   And endless possibilities

   The mannequin's blank face

   Reflecting how you feel

   So glamorous and surreal

   It's a thin veneer

   And something's got to give out here

   I'm dreaming number 99

   Get me to the world on time

 

Chorus:

 

Finish the song with the Chorus twice in a row.


Country Grass (Toshack Highway)

 

General Notes:

Standard Tuning, Capo on the 7th Fret. Adapted from an in store show at Soundscapes in Toronto.

The song is in 3/4 time, with each beat is broken into a triplet, so I write an entire bar as:

Verse 2:

 

This is the same tab as the first verse.

 

   Pour me another wine, I don’t have much time

   I hear the train a callin’, and I must go

   Lookin’ in your eyes, and I don’t want to fly

   Your morning hair hangs low, I must go

 

Bridge:

 

This is the same as the first Bridge.

 

Verse 3:

 

This is the same as the first verse.

 

   Smoke me country grass, as these moments pass

   If you have eyes then see me, in your dreams

   Wake me when we’re through, I know a place for you

   Trace my steps home and kick over the traces

 

Bridge/Coda:

 

Play the Am, D7 beginning section of the bridge, then play the Fmaj7, C section once, and then on the second time through, sing:

 

   Take me country grass as these moments all pass

 

Then play the Fmaj7 bar one more time, and finish by strumming a C chord.


Duress (Swervedriver)

 

General Notes:

Tuned from low to high as GCDGCD. Adapted from an Adam Franklin acoustic live bootleg (7/2/2001, The Fez, NY City). Standard 4/4 time. Adam sings the intro guitar solo that is normally done with the wah pedal.

 

Chord Diagrams:

 

Because of the alternate tuning, I will show the chord diagrams for the chords used in this song, and give them somewhat arbitrary names. Note that some chords are high up the neck. I have indicated in bold the fret number at the top of the chord diagram whenever it is not the end of the neck.

Note that the strumming pattern from above continues the same exact way, i.e. the G# and Eb chords are strummed for two bars.

 

   C4                            Bb

     And when the dawn begins to creep,

 

                           C

   Sunlight finds you in a heap,

 

                                   G#

   And how you wish that you could sleep,

 

                                    Bb

   Forget the lies that you’ve been told,

 

                                  C

   Think you’re setting free your soul,

 

                             Eb

   But you’re really getting old.

 

                                  Bb

   You’ve dreamt of divin’ in the sea,

 

                                      C

   Your outstretched hand in front of me,

 

                                     G#

   And how you wished that you could breathe.

 

                       Bb

   In the grip of ecstasy,

 

                           C

   When the shadows follow me,

 

                       Eb

   And the night won’t set you free.

 

                                   Bb

   You wish someone could love you less,

 

                        G# (this is just one bar)

   Longing for that one caress,

 

                        C4

   I see you sink under Duress.

 

Outro:

 

Play the C4 chord for three bars, then in this version of the song, Adam sings some additional lyrics over the C4 chord, I am not 100% sure, but I believe that they go like this:

 

   Don’t let me hear your safe life

   takin’ you over,           Angel

 

On “Angel” it switches to the Bb chord, and Adam plays the entire into section again to close the song, finishing on the C4 chord.

General Notes:

Standard Tuning. Adapted by me from the actual album version. Standard 4/4 time.

 

Intro:

 

Repeat as many times as you like

E||---------------------------------||

B||------2-----2---------7----------||

G||.---4-----4-----4---9---7-----7-.||

D||.-2-----2---------7---------7---.||

A||---------------------------------||

E||---------------------------------||

     1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4

 

Then switch to strumming the following chords:

E               A       Asus4

1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4

 

These chords are repeated as above all the way to the bridge.

 

Verse and Chorus:

 

   E                                   A           Asus4           

   Like summer's death throes London's arms around me

   The world ends in West End sirens screaming unseen

   The river frozen and the lions asleep

   Up on the Westway watching people as sheep

 

Play the chords once in between the verse and chorus

      

          E         A           Asus4

   It's a long way away from it all

   In my corner I sometimes feel nothing at all

   It's the best way when the snow starts to fall

 

Play the chords twice between the chorus and verse

 

   E                         A               Asus4

   Confetti falling down the drains of your dreams

   Life in the fast lane never quite what it seems

   You're full-on baby with your full-on beams

 

Play the chords once again before the next chorus

 

           E                    A           Asus4

   On an expressway through the heart of it all

   In my corner I can walk cannot crawl

   It's the best way when the snow starts to fall

 

Play the chords once more before the bridge

 

Bridge:

 

You can play around with the strumming on this section.

E||---------------------------------||

    1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

 

Repeat a few times, then sing over the same chords:

 

   Like summer's death throes London armed surrounds me

   I'm up EC1 rusted fountains drown me

   This frozen river and these lions that breathe

   On an expressway

   Is this the best way

 

On the last time through, play a G major bar chord instead of the last B2 chord.

 

Outro:

 

This is exactly the same as the verse, but a half step up, so you use bar chords on the first fret.

 

   F                                   Bb          Bbsus4

   Like summer's death throes London's arms around me

   I'm up the West End shooting what I can see

   The river frozen and the lions asleep

   He carved out "Maggie Sucks" on the

   Em                       Em7

   There's gonna be some history here

 

   F                            C

Chorus:

 

Play the riff on the C chord from the end of the first verse 4X, and over the last two times through, sing:

 

   And it's fallin' away

 

Verse:

 

This one is the same chord changes from the first verse.

Chorus/Outro:

 

Use the Riff from the first chorus, but on F where noted.

General Notes:

Standard Tuning. Adapted from the EP version. Standard 4/4 time. Adam really finger picks this, and plucks the bass notes all the way through each bar, but this adaptation can be played just by strumming. It should be easy to add if you have good finger picking skills.

 

Intro:

Verse:

 

This is exactly the same as the first verse and bridge

 

   You're somewhere out there in a landslide

   All hope just slippin' through like sand

   Telephone lines down in a rainstorm

   And I'm like a ship moored on dry land

   I get this feelin'

   It's such a bitch

 

This is also the same for the verse, but the bridge changes and flows into the chorus.

 

   You're always far out in the midrange

   All around the state boundary spillage signs

   Somebody burnt down all the pylons

   And your my passport past these mines

Verse:

 

This is exactly the same as the last verse, with the “Bridge 2/Chorus” combo at the end.

 

   End of the tunnel light just blinds me

   While you weep like a willow tree

   Send out distress signals to find me

   They shine so hard so why can't we?

  

   I get this feelin'

   Wanna hitch

   Hitch a ride on your smile

   Hitch a ride on your smile

   Hitch a ride away from here

   A ride away from here

   Hitch a ride on your smile

   Hitch a ride on your smile

   Hitch a ride a-

   I get this feelin'

 

At the end of the chorus, strum an Em chord to finish.

Solo:

 

Haven’t gotten around to figuring this out yet, but basically Adam solos on the chords G and G4.5, one bar each, repeated 6 times.

 

Verse:

 

This is exactly the same as the first 12 bars of the first verse.

 

   I don't care what you say

   I'm gonna do it anyway

   I don't care how it stands

   You see my juggernaut rides the sands

 

When you get to this point, it ends like this:

Last Train to Satansville (Swervedriver)

 

General Notes:

Standard Tuning. Adapted from a live bootleg of Adam playing acoustic guitar (10/30/2000, Copenhagen). Standard 4/4 time. For the Copenhagen version, Adam uses a Capo on the 2nd fret, but on another live acoustic version he does not use a Capo, so your choice.

 

Intro:

 

Repeat the below pattern once without singing, and then sing the rest of the lines.

    ice cold stare and said I’ve been having those dreams again    

 

Every verse is basically played the same, but sometimes Adam throws in a C chord for the last two beats of the 1st or 2nd line of each verse, instead of just the Em riff. He also plays an extra bar of the Em riff after some of the verses. I have indicated this below.

 

      G                      Em

   In one dream there's this girl I love

 

          G                  Em    C

   And we dance every wakin' breath

 

              G                       Em

   And in the other they've thrown me in a cell

 

               C                 Em X2

   And they're tryin' me for her death

 

       G              Em

   I'm only young and young in love

 

        G              Em    C

   As I hold that girl today

 

           G                 Em

   But I'm old and tired and in the cell

 

            C                 Em X2

   And I've nigh on withered away

 

   Bridge:

  

Play the intro again, but skip the first time through, so you only play it 4X, all with the “Ooh”s. Note that the first words of the next verse below (“Y’see my”) fall on the last beat and a half of the bridge.


Verse:

 

            G           Em

   Y'see my baby' gone away too long

 

           G                Em    C

   And I'm chokin' back the tears

 

     G                  Em

   Disheveled star in a burnt out bar

           C             Em

   And I'm talkin' in my drink

 

       G               Em

   She promised me the world and more

 

       G                 Em    C

   How could she do this to me?

 

       G                   Em

   And now mine's tumblin' down around

 

          C                 Em

   But at least my eyes can see, And those

 

   C            C*          Em X2          

   stars in the sky are for me

 

*Note that for this one version of the verse, there is an extra line, which contains two bars of the C chord.

 

      G                  Em

   So as this fagged-out tinsel town

 

         G              Em  C

   Waves so-long to the sun

 

     G               Em

   I lay here calmly on my bed

 

           C             Em

   And the trigger of my gun

 

       G                   Em

   And should that no good woman show up

 


   G              Em   C

   Dancin' from a dream

 

        G                    Em

   I'll squeeze it twice and not think twice

 

       C            Em

   And relish every scream

 

Outro:

 

On the last line of the last verse, Adam sings “scream” an octave higher, and moves right into the falsetto “Ooh”s like in the Intro. “Scream” replaces the first “Ooh ooh”, so it goes like this:

 

     1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

        Scre-       eam         oo-ooh  ooh   oo-ooh

        Ooh                                   oo-ooh

        Ooh         ooh         oo-ooh  ooh   oo-ooh

        Ooh                           ooh   ooh   ooh

        ooh

 

Gradually slow down the last few bars until the end.

Chorus:

 

This is the same as the first chorus, but you repeat everything twice, except for the first two bars.

 

   I hear you say

 

   Am I the only one

   Am I the only one

   Am I the only one

   Am I the only one

   We're not the chosen ones

   We're not the chosen ones

   I'm not the only one

   I'm not the only one
