THE SWAMP SONG

(Gallagher)

track 3 on the UK "Wonderwall" single

and partly track 6 on the album "(What's The Story) Morning Glory?"

NOTE: What you'll hear in this live jam session is Bonehead playing one

part pretty much over and over again, Noel doing some fills and soloing,

while I believe Paul Weller does most of the soloing and fills and plays

the harmonica as well.

TAB KEY:

b = bend (7b9 means bend the string at the 7th fret to make the note the

string would play at the 9th fret with no bend)

r = release bend

s = slide

h = hammer on

p = pull off

So, first of all, here's the basic riff that Bonehead (guitar #1) is

playing through most of the song:

Am

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------

B-----------------------------------------------------------------------

G------------0--2--------------------------2--0--2----------------------

D----------------------------------0---------------------------0--------

A---0----0---------0---0---0---3-------0-----------0--0--0--3-----------

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------

NOTE: In the transcription below, every place there's an exclamation point

(!) above the tab, that's where Bonehead's riff above has been played

through one time, to help you figure out the rhythm of the song.

Before the drums and the other instruments chime in, there's a little of

this:

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

B--5--------------------------------------------------------------------------

G--5----2---------------------------------------------------------------------

D--5----2---noise-------------------------------------------------------------

A--3----0---------------0-----------0-------3--5--0--------0--3--0----3--5--0-

E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Now, we have Noel (Guitar #2) playing some of the parts with a dirty

sounding distortion (some parts I don't have listed because they are hard

to distinguish from the background noise in this song and aren't very

important to the sound of this song as a whole, anyway), but Paul Weller

(guitar #3) does most of the soloing with the cleaner, heavier distortion

effect.So, after Bonehead starts his riff, right at the end of the last time

through before Paul starts playing, Noel does this:

e---------------------------------------------------------------------------

B---------------------------------------------------------------------------

G-----------7b8--7p5--5-----5-----------------------------------------------

D------------------------7-----7--------------------------------------------

A---------------------------------------------------------------------------

E---------------------------------------------------------------------------

Then, Paul:

!

B-15b17--15b17r15---13--15--13--13------------------ Repeat

G-----------------------------------14-------------- three

D--------------------------------------------------- times

A---------------------------------------------------

E---------------------------------------------------

On the fourth time:

Noel !D-------------------------------------------------------------------

!A-------------------------------------------------------------------

Here, for 2 times through Bonehead's riff, Noel uses a muffled guitar

effect and picks at an "Am" chord, something like this:

Am

e--------------0------------------------------------------------------------

B-----1--0--1------0--1-----------------------------------------------------

G----------------------------repeat-a-few-times-----------------------------

D---------------------------------------------------------------------------

A--0---------------------0--------------------------------------------------

Then, Paul:

Here's where the song kind of stops for a minute:
