Colorblind Piano Music

This is basically the same as Justin's transcription except there were a few
mistakes on the verse that I fixed.  I also made the music a little easier to
read...it seemed a bit confusing to me.  But now I'm sure the transcription is
now 100% accurate.

There are 4 lines that are basically repeated.  The bass notes go A-A#-F-A#. 
The accompanying notes are:

(BASS NOTE: ACCOMPANYING NOTES)

A:  A-C-A-C-G-C-A-C
A#: A-C-A-C-A(octave)-C-A-C
F:  A-C-A-C-F-C-A-C
A#: F-C-A-C-F-C-A-C

The bass notes of the chorus go F-A#, while the accompanying notes are just
F-C-A-C over and over (like the last line of the verse).

I'm sure if you listen to the CD you'll get it.

7. Colorblind
now, even though this song is REALLY REALLY meant to be played on a
piano, here's the main riff from colorblind. the fingering for the first
chord is a bit awkward at first, but this seems to be the only way to
play it so that all the notes ring together from one chord to the next.
it's all eighth notes. Let the bass notes ring throughout each measure.


 (G#m7)             (Amaj9)           (E)               (E/A)

e----------2-------|---------4-------|---------0-------|-0-------0-------|
b----0---0---0---0-|---0---0---0---0-|---0---0---0---0-|---0---0---0---0-|

----------3rd translation

THE RIGHT HAND NOTES SHOULD START WITH THE A BELOW MIDDLE C AND MIDDLE C. 
    THE LEFT HAND SHOULD BE THE SAME A IN AN OCTAVE, THEN THE LOWER C IN AN 
    OCTAVE, AND THEN THE F BETWEEN THE A AND C ALSO IN AN OCTAVE. 

    RH:   A C A C G C A C 
    LH:   A 

    RH:   A C A C A - (OCTAVE HIGHER), C A C 
    LH:   C 

    RH:   A C A C F C A C F C A C F C A C 
    LH:   F                        F           F 

    THEN REPEAT ON END TO THE HAUNTING MELODY OF THE CROWS' COLOR BLIND!!! 

    HOPE THIS MAKES SENSE AND HAVE FUN!!
