Our Lady Peace "Denied" Performance Notes

This song is pretty basic.  The opening lick is a somewhat simple
arpeggiated figure that is
a bit tough on the timing but, with a little listening to the album, it
should be playable
in no time at all.  I'm not sure if the timing is as accurate as it could
be.  I don't
compose music for orchestras but, I do know a bit about timing, etc.  I'm
just hoping that
it's right.  When playing Riff: 2, try and play it as "fluidly" as possible.
If you listen
to Mike's playing on the album, he plays it a great deal of finesse.  So
keep that in mind
performing that particular riff.  Riffs 3, 6A and 6B are all pretty much
similar but, with
a slight variation in each.  The guitar solo is a bit tough.  Mike doesn't
play a guitar
a whammy bar to my knowledge (at least not live) so get your fingers warmed
up for some
serious vibrato!  Riff: 4B has major vibrato in it.  I must give credit to
Mark Wiebe
(rwiebe@mindlink.bc.ca) for his transcription of "Denied".  He had recently
posted his
of inspiration
and borrowed a couple of notes from it for my transcription.  The outro solo
is a bit buried
in the mix.  Hopefully, someday I can figure that out and I'll be able to
post it.  The last
lick in the song is basically in free time and it's a distorted and
contorted version of the
opening riff.  Listen to the song for more details.  Please feel free to
e-mail me with any
questions or comments at morgano@ici.net.  Enjoy!!!
