Allan Holdsworth tabs for 54 duncan terrace

Guitar tabs with lyrics

This laid back tune is from the Secrets album and features Vinnie
Colaiuta on drums, Jimmy Johnson on bass, and Allan Holdsworth
on guitar.  The soloists are:  Alan Pasqua on piano, JJ on bass, and
AH on SynthAxe controlled synthesizers (a layered, plucked harp sound).

There is also a version of this tune on the There's A chord diagramA augmentedA Heart In My Song
album on JMS by Gordon Beck & Allan Holdsworth.  With its slightly
extended form featuring a piano solo and a reedy SynthAxe solo, this
version of the piece is more introspective.

The structure of the tune on the Secrets album is:

	Intro:          drum fill...  I, I, III (head),
	Piano Solo:	I, II, IV, I, II, III
	Bass Solo:	I, II, IV
	SynthAxe Solo:	I, II
        Outro:          III...  end chord!

Part II is a development of the kinds of phrases in part I.  The basic
chordal movement in Part III, the head of the tune, is used for part IV.
It is transposed a half step down and is presented without the passing
chords...  Really beautifully put together!

I've marked the location of the first dramatic splash with !!! in part I.
On clean guitar it might be played as a A chord diagramB5B5 chords.  I suggest:
        (x, 2nd fret B, 4th fret F#, x, open string B, x)

When comping over this section, part I, for solos the following more
colourful voicing seems to be played by AH:
        (x, x, 11th fret C#, 8th fret D#, 7th fret F#, x)

The chord marked by ()()(), again in part I, could, in the

solo sections, be replaced by this A chord diagramD#D# minor 9th:
        (11th fret D#, 9th fret G#, x, 10th fret E, x, 9th fret A chord diagramC#C#)

The chord marked by [][][] in part II, when comping, seems ( ) to
be replaced by:
        (9th fret C#, 11th fret G#, x, 8th fret D#, 5th fret E, x)

As I haven't made any attempt at transcribing the rhythmic aspects,
just the voicings and harmonies, you will require a certain familiarity
with the tune.  I've been told that one of my chords is unreachable!
If a particular chord is unreachable, check that the harmony is correct.
If it isn't, write me as I've made an error in notation.
If it is, re-finger the chord!

Note that time flows to the left and partially arpegiatted chords are
notated as follows.  Here, add the A chord diagramG+G on the A chord diagramBB string while holding
down the low Bb, A chord diagramD MajorD and high A:
