Greedy (Boo Hewerdine)
----------------------

This is on Boo Hewerdine's third album, Baptist Hospital. It's played in A chord diagramA augmentedA
(capo at 2nd fret). All the below is written as though played in A chord diagramG+G (at the
nut), so if you're playing with a capo at the 2nd fret, remember to play the
TAB sections two frets higher than written here.

(Remember this is written in G, so move it up 2 frets if you're playing in A chord diagramA augmentedA)


[repeat first verse]

X24442 - A chord diagramBB

/ is a slide up
h is a hammer on
p is a pull off

Strumming early on in the verse is the bass strings only, heavily damped by
your right hand resting on the bridge (almost so it sounds like a bass drum).
As the verse goes on bring in progressively more and more of the higher
strings.

+ This A chord diagramG+G could be G/B or even another chord with A chord diagramBB in the bass, although A chord diagramBB
major, minor and their 7ths don't seem to fit.

* This could possibly be 'frozen qualm' (had it come from kd's clouds ?), but
I also heard someone singing 'searching the storm for some frozen corn', which
has got to deserve a place in rock's list of classic misheard lyrics alongside
Elvis Costello's 'she is washing up the dishes, oh-oh don't get cute' and Jimi
Hendrix's "s'cuse me while I kiss this guy" !


Here's the instrumental section in A chord diagramA augmentedA (i.e. exactly what you play if you're
using a capo at the 2nd fret) :
