"Hangman Jury"

Aerosmith

 

"Hangman Jury"(Tyler/Perry/Vallance)

 

Performed by Aerosmith at the Aerosmith Unplugged(1990)

Originally from "Permanent Vacation"(1987)

Transcribed off of "Aerosmith:Woodstock '94"(Octopus)

At this point, Steven starts in with the harmonica and Joe returns to the

beginning and plays a variation of what is tabbed here. The lyrics are

basically the same as in the "Permanent Vacation" sleeve with the exception

of Steven's notable substitution of "talkin' bout the first time we got

laid" for "talkin' bout the money that I ain't made" and "stand on the rock

Joe Perry done stood" for "stand on the rock that Moses stood." When Steven

starts with "If I could I surely would..." for the first time, the guitar

plays what sounds like a variation of this riff:

You'll have to figure out the timing for this and the first part by

listening to the music. I taped the Unplugged special back in 1990 but I

didn't have it with me when I transcribed this. I may add/change something

after I watch the tape. In the meantime, you're welcome to do the same.

Write me with any questions.

 

symbols used in transcription:

p = pull-off

This next part is very similar to(if not exactly like) what Brad plays on the

unplugged version of the song. On the PV album it's played on an electric

guitar:

A--2--------------2--------------4---------------6------7----|

D------------------------------------------------------------|

At the end of this riff, just move the second chord up the neck.

 

I can't quite make out what Joe plays for this part yet. When I figure it out,

I'll post it. In the meantime, if you know it, you're more than welcome to

send it to me to post.

 

Before the next riff, both guitars play this(w/distortion):

 

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

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

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

D-------------------------------|

A--7-7-9-7--7-7-9-7--7-7-9-7-7--|

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

 

riff 3(electric guitar w/distortion)-

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

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

G------9p7-------7p5--------5p4---------------|

D--0h7-------0h5--------0h4------0------------|

A-----------------------------------0h5--0h5--|

D---------------------------------------------|

 

This next part I also based on Brad's unplugged performance. I think Joe plays

similar chords. Correct me if I'm wrong.

 

riff 4-

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

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

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

D--------------------------------------------------|

A--7-7-9-7---3-3-5-3--10-10-12-10--10-10-12-10-----|

D--5-5-5-5---1-1-1-1---8--8--8--8---8--8--8--8-----|
