Binsey Poplars -- "Spoons" (4.48)
from the KokoPop release "Trip So Far" c1995.
transcribed by Jeff Raab

Again, two guitar parts. G1 is the main rhythm part, G2 is dubbed over.
I'll break it down by the song structure...


12 second bass intro...

Same as before for both guitars, except G1 keeps its distortion on the
whole time, and adds a random ghost note, e |--3--|, before playing the
second measure of just plain D.

That's it.  A lot easier than my presentation makes it look.  Great
song, though.  Too bad that KokoPop has no power at all as a label.
