Critical Mass

(Tyler/Hamilton/Douglas)

 

Many of the guitar parts in this song are backwards. I haven't

transcribed those because I haven't the slightest idea how. I have

transcribed (most of)the regular guitar parts though. Have fun with them

and write me with any comments,questions, corrections and additions.

 

The chords during the verse just sound like G and A

 

G A

 

E---3---5--|

B---3---5--|

G---4---6--|

D---5---7--|

A---5---7--|

E---3---5--|

 

G

arriving in boats, black hooded coats

G

tormentors climbed into my room

G

i crawled under my bed, covered my head

G

but they're flushin' me out with a broom

G

the leader, she's small, pinned my ass to the wall

G

for my seeds or she'd be losin' her past

A

time after time, she'd be readin' my mind

A

but she never got the feelin' to last

G

celebrate, celebrate, celebraid it

G

this is the critical mass

 

so far so good, I heard the other say

so good so far, they're takin' me away

I drink to you, your mind, her ass

we'll take a drink and break the glass

 

celebrate, celebrate, celebreak it

this is the critical mass

 

The first interlude and the second interlude are very similar guitar-wise.

This is the second interlude:

 

interlude(w/harmonica)

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

B------------|-------10-9-|-----------|-------10-10|

G------------|-9p7--------|-----------|-9p7--------|

D--9p7---7-9-|-----9------|-9p7---7-9-|-----9------|

A------9-----|------------|-----9-----|------------|

A------9-----|------------|----(9)5-7---7--9--10\-|

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

 

 

G(verse chords same as above)

now the tallest of two, with a brush full of blue

paints surrealist scenes on the wall(fill)

fill 1(w/distortion)-

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

B----------------------------|

G----------------------------|

D---3------------------------|

A------5---------------------|

E---------3--6b-r--3--6b-----|

 

so I tell her for fun, that it's really well done

but she just ain't listenin' at all

she points to my heart, tellin' me if I'm smart

I'll practice and phase

out and admit, when the shoe doesn't fit

and I went screaming out down the hall

 

need it

need your love

 

just then I heard a poundin' on the door

we're all here, sang the voice of twenty more

I drink to you alas, we'll take a drink and break the glass

 

celebrate, celebrate, celebreak it

we are the critical mass(interlude w/harmonica)

 

 

time and space, is takin' me away

time erase, don't know the time of day

 

outro(slight variations)-

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

B----------------------17b-----------------------|

G------17-17p15-------------15b--r------17-17p15-|

D--17-----------17-17---------------17-----------|

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

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

 

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

B---------17b----------------|

G--------------15b-15--------|

D--17-17---------------17----|

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

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

 

continue with similar, fade out

 

fade in with guitar part(maybe backwards) that sounds similar to this:

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

B-----------------------------------------------|

G---------0--------0--------0-----0-----------0-|

D------------------------------------------0----|

A------2--------2--------2--------------2-------|

E---3--------3--------3--------3-----3----------|

 

fade out with backwards guitar and sound effects
