Subject: TAB: "O My Soul" (Big Star)

And now for the piece de resistance, Alex Chilton's guitar spotlight from
_Radio_City_. I have no idea why this was recorded in mono. Anyway, this
godlike slab of pop-funk kicks off a great album and is a phenomenal amount of
fun to play. And I tried my absolute damnedest to get as complete and accurate
a transcription as I could possibly get without asking Chilton himself (he
refuses to return my calls). Notes:

1) You've got it easy on this one. One guitar. No more, no less. The entire
    instrumentation for this is: one guitar, one bass, drums, and an organ.
    That's it. I'm killing the organ for this transcription.
2) Chilton's tone in this song is clean but wet. I don't know how else to
    describe it, just... wet. It sounds like it may have been drenched in slap-
    back echo (which aids in the almost percussive-like nature of the guitar),
    but that's a fairly uninformed guess. But it sure sounds great, whatever it
    is.
3) This is a song that you kinda have to work at. Sliding up to an A on the E
    string and then playing the open A string takes a bit of practice (but it's
    a great technique). Also, those A6 chords aren't too easy to get every time
    if you're not used to it. If you've played Buddy Holly's "Heartbeat" or the
    Ren & Stimpy theme, this is the same chord: x07675. If you have problems
    with this chord, try an open A6, which looks like this: x02222. It will
    give you a close approximation of the chord (the only major difference is
    that you won't hit that high A, which is kinda important but not earth-
    shatteringly so). In any case, it's what the organ's playing, so you'll at
    least be doing something correctly. Still, try to get the 5th position A6
    and 7th position one. The song'll sound better and you'll be happier, as
    the chords are sure to come in handy in the future.
4) *I* can't play and sing this at the same time. Chilton really strains his
    voice here (and on the rest of the album - "Morpha Too" is quite obviously
    too high for him), and he's already got a higher range than a lot of men.
    That, plus the fact that the guitar and vocals have vastly different
    rhythms, will make singing and playing difficult. Don't necessarily give
    up. I'm just warning you.
5) The intro is a bitch. Not the shapes, but the timing. I still have problems
    with it. Practice, practice, practice.
6) I've kinda left out a lot of the percussive string scratching. I suppose I
    coulda pointed out every little bit, but that woulda been more than silly.
    You really have to go with the feel on this one.
7) The outro isn't really played, I think. Best I can figure is that they left
    the drum and bass tracks the same and started screwing around with the tape
    of the guitar track to get the sounds. If not, I've given you the basic
    notes for this part. It's weird. Tremelo pick it to get it close.
8) Okay, I give up. What *is* Chilton saying right before "Go on and have a
    good time?"
9) I'd just like to take this opportunity to point out that this song is what
    rock and roll is all about. Full stop. End of story.


"O My Soul" (Alex Chilton)
Performed by Big Star
From the album _Radio_City_ (together as one CD with _#1_Record_)
Transcribed without permission by Marc Hirsh, but I'm only trying to get more
    people interested in and influenced by Big Star, so I'm sure Chilton
    wouldn't mind, though I've never asked him, but I'd really like to, because
    he's such a big hero of mine and everything and I sure wish I'd been able
    to see that reunion concert at the University of Missouri, but oh well
