Little Angels
"Soapbox" 
written by T. Jepson and A.J. Paul
Big Bad Music Ltd./PolyGram Music Publishing Ltd.
as performed on the Polydor Album "Jam"
transcribed by Anand Kumar (ST001904@hrz1.hrz.tu-darmstadt.de, HalfIndy@AOL.com)
        and by st0605@bims2.cihe.ac.uk

Here's the complete acoustic rhythm guitar of the song. 

The song was already transcribed in parts by st0605@bims2.cihe.ac.uk, who
lets you know this: "Any Angels fans out there in the world mail me".

d=downstroke
u=upstroke

Chords are simple, rhythm is everything:

Riff 1:

Riff 1 is played in the Intro, the verse and in the first part of the
chorus.

Riff 2:

Riff 2 is played at the end of each verse, before the chorus.

Riff 3:

In the second part of the chorus I can't hear the acoustic very well, so I'll
tab a rhythm that imitates the "band-rhythm".

                                                     play Riff4 instead

Riff 4:

Riff 4 is kind of a bridge, after the second chorus.

   Dm            G                     Dm            G
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +    
   dudududududududu  dudududududududu  dudududududududu  dudududududududu  

   Em            A                     F       C         G (volume rising)
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +    
   dudududududududu  dudududududududu  dudududududududu  dudududududududu  


Riff 5:

Riff 5 is quite similar to the end of chorus 1 and comes in the Outro.

     d               D/F#        G                      C       G
e-I--2-------2-----------2---x---2----I-----------------0-------3--------I
b-I.-3-------3---3-3-----3---x---2----I---------3---3-3-1---1-1-3---3-3-.I
g-I--2-------2---2-2-----2---x---0----I---------0---0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0--I
d-I.-0-------0---0-0-----0---x---0----I---------0---0-0-2---2-2-0---0-0-.I
A-I--0-------0-------0---0---x---2----I-----------------3-------2--------I
E-I------------------2-------x---3----I-----------------3-------3--------I
     1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +      1   +   2   +   3   +   4   +    
     d u d u d u d u d u d u d u d u    d u d u d u d u d u d u d u d u  

Don't mix up Riff 1 and Riff 5. There pretty similar from the chords (C in-
stead of A), but the rhythm is different (G is on 4+)!

Well, sometimes they skip a half-bar and the end of a riff, this is so 
evident you'll find out yourself.

Riff1
       Mmmmmmmmhhh

She's got (d)many more yea(D/F#)rs A(G)head of it all (A)(G)

There's a (D)fire in her heart (D/F#)tells her (G)so

(A)So (G)she's (d)walking pretty ta(D/F#)ll into these (G)old mansion ha(A)lls
Riff2
(G)Just to (C)let them all know...

Riff1
(d)Come down (D/F#)from your so(G)apbox (A)(G)

(d)Come down (D/F#)on your o(G)wn (A)(G)

(d)Come down (D/F#)from your so(G)apbox (A)
Riff3
(G)Even (F)though you wanna (C)chase it,

you (G)know you just might (D)break through,

you'll (F)never have to (C)face it alo(G)o(d)ne (D/F#) (G)(C)(G)


Riff1
She tells them that she's right

Stands there ready for the fight

She is stubborn, she is listening no more
	
There's an empty ring of doubt

and her mind can't put it out
Riff2
The truth's not easy to ignore... So I say:


Riff1
(d)Come down (D/F#)from your so(G)apbox (A)(G)

(d)Come down (D/F#)on your o(G)wn (A)(G)

(d)Come down (D/F#)from your so(G)apbox (A)
Riff3 (to *)
(G)Even (F)though you wanna (C)chase it,

you (G)know you just might (D)break through,

you'll (F)never have to (C)face it alo(G)o(G)o(Dm)one

Riff4
(Dm)You could be (G)wrong

(Dm)You could be (G)totally wrong

(Em)You can see it in (A)the others,

but you (F)just can't (C)see it
                          Riff5
(G)when it's under you're (D)nose (D/F#) (G)No

when it's (C)under you're (G)nose

(D)(D/F#)(G)A (C)lot of people say:

Riff1
(d)Come down (D/F#)from your so(G)apbox (A)(G)

(d)Come down (D/F#)on your o(G)wn (A)(G)

(d)Come down (D/F#)from your so(G)apbox (A)
Riff3 (to *)
(G)Even (F)though you wanna (C)chase it,

you (G)know you just might (D)break through,

you'll (F)never have to (C)face it alo(G)o(G)o(d)one
Riff3
Come from (F)out of the light

Get right (C)into the shade

You gotta (G)open up your mind

and let your (D)heart behave
                                       let ring
(F)Never have to (C)face it alo(G)o(G)o(d)one

Riff1
(d)(D/F#)(G)Face i(A)t (G)al(d)one (D/F#)(G)(A)(G)

Riff5
(d)Naa nana(D/F#)na na naa (G)naaa nana(C)na nana(G)na nana

(d)(D/F#)(G)(C)(G)Face it al(d)one...

That's all I could do. Let me know what you think and contact me, if you 
know what the former Little Angels (Toby Jepson, Jimmy and Bruce John 
Dickinson, Mark Richardson, Mark Plunkett) are doing today...
Thanks!

PS: Correct this, I'll learn it!
