Subject: TAB:  Matte Kudasai by King Crimson

Matte Kudasai, by King Crimson, from _Discipline_.  Also on various 
compilation CDs and _The Acoustic Adrian Belew_.

The song is in implied E major.  This is the arpeggiated rhythm part Fripp 
plays behind Belew's improvised slide guitar solos and the lyrics.  Listen
to the song to get how things fit together.  I play it kind of like Adrian 
on _The Acoustic Adrian Belew_.  The song is in three time, and really 
swings.  If you're playing it on an acoustic, it should sound decent.  If 
you're playing it on an electric, use a _very_ light distortion (mostly for 
warmth), light chorus/flange, a long delay, and compression.  It will probably
sound OK on a plain clean guitar with some reverb, but I thought I'd give you
the full list!  I recently saw Crimson live and verified my guesses, so I think 
this is pretty close.  


Intro:

[A verse with no words, Adrian solos in E major and its related modes with 
a slide.  He also puts lots of slide licks in when there are no words.]



Verse Riff:  
                                                     (*)

________|__________|_______4___2_|____________|____________|______________
_0_2h3h4|_0_0______|__0__________|_0__________|__0_________|_0_2h3h4______


(*)  Fripp improvises on this bit, so try different things out.  Mostly 
triple stops.  e.g., 


  __5-sl-7__5-sl-7_|___
  __5-sl-7__5-sl-7_|___
  __4-sl-6__4-sl-6_|___
  _________________|___
  _________________|___
  0________________|__0  etc.      




  segue ->    Chorus Riff 1a                Chorus Riff 1b

(Note:  this fingering is really tough.  I recommend doing stretching 
exercises before attempting it.  I recommend using a thumb fret for the 
bass string, but if you can finger it some other way, go for it!)

NOTE:  I forgot to indicate that you need to play each measure twice on 
Chrous Riffs 1a and 1b.  Please edit the file accordingly, replacing the 
line titled "segue -> Chorus Riff 1a    Chorus Riff 1b" in the original with
the lines below.
