 "One of the greatest put together songs that Aerosmith ever did. Those

were my thoughts on UFOs, the theory of evolution, the monkey, and Adam and

Eve. How incredibly naive to think that there were just those two people

just buzzing around the woods naked, having a blast."

-Steven Tyler

 

"Adam's Apple"(Steven Tyler)

 

Performed by Aerosmith on "Toys in the Attic"(1975)

Transcribed by Bryson Meunier

intro-

(1/2 step)

E-----------5-----------------------5---------------|

B-----------5----------4b4-4r---2---5---------4b4-4r|

G-----------2----------4b4-4r---2---2---------4b4-4r|

D-----------2----------4b4-4r---2---2---------4b4-4r|

A---3b-p0-------3b-p0-----------0-------3b-p0-------|

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

 

E------5--------------------------------------------|

B--2---5-----------4b4-4r--5------------------------|

G--2---2-----------4b4-4r--5------------------------|

D--2---2-----------4b4-4r--5------------------------|

A--0-------3b-p0------------------------------------|

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

 

The verse riff,upon which most of the song is built, is very similar in

structure to the intro. The only difference is the beginning and the end. In

other words, it's just this over and over again:

rhy.fig.1-

E------5-----------------------|

B---2--5-----------4b-4-4r-----|

G---2--2-----------4b-4-4r-----|

D---2--2-----------4b-4-4r-----|

A---0------3b-p0---------------|

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

 

A(palm muted)

Back when Cain was able way before the stable

Lightning struck right down from the sky

 

At this point, the guitar plays this:

rhy.fig 2-

D5 C#5 C5 B5 B

E------------------------2----|

B------------------------4----|

G----7----7--6--5--4-----4----|

D----7----7--6--5--4-----4----|

A----5----5--4--3--2-----2----|

E-----------------------------| (strum the last chord in rhythm with the song)

 

A mothership with faith said "Let's give it a try"(rhy.fig 1)

A

Conscience was related

Man, he was created

Lady Luck took him by surprise(rhy.fig.2)

E

Her sweet and bitter fruit it surely opened his eyes

chorus-

D

Well, she ate it

F

Lordy it was love at first bite(rhy.fig 1)

D

Well she ate it

G F#m E

Never knowin' wrong from right right right

 

The chord progression is pretty much the same until the end. The rest of the

lyrics go like this:

 

Even Eve in Eden

voices tried deceivin' with lies to show the lady the way

At first she stopped and turned and tried to walk away

 

Man, he was believer

Lady was deceiver so the story goes, but you see

The snake was he and she just climbed right up his tree

So...(go into chorus)

 

Science was related

man, he was created when Lady Luck took him by surprise

Her sweet and bitter fruit it surely opened his eyes

 

Evil came like rain an' who knows who's to blame an'

Somethin' tried to lay her to waste

and all she'd want to need was just a little taste

(chorus)

 

End on a variation of rhy.fig. 1 and throw the E chord in over "that's

right!" That's basically it. It should be pretty accurate because it's

similar if not identical to the way that Joe Perry played it in a

Rockumentary clip of Texxas Jam '78(I'm pretty sure that's what it was).

Please consider posting the solo if you know it.
