I posted the following to alt.guitar.tab some time ago, and someone
suggested I send it to you also, for inclusion in the archive.

"Misplaced Childhood" by Marillion

Here is a complete transcription of the guitar part of the whole album
"Misplaced Childhood" by Marillion (except those songs which have already
been done and are at Nevada).

Bear in mind that this is just what I hear/play - feel free to disagree.
I would love to hear any corrections you have, etc.  I've worked from
the original version, not the live version in "The Thieving Magpie" -
there are some differences.



PSEUDO SILK KIMONO

No guitar that I can make out, but here are some chords if you want
to give it a go...

 Bm                         G                           Bm
"Huddled in the safety of a pseudo silk kimono, wearing bracelets..."

 A           G
"Cruel joke, cruel joke..."



KAYLEIGH

This has been superbly transcribed by Shane P Faulkner, and is at
Nevada, so I'm not going to repeat it here.



LAVENDER

This has also been done, again by Shane, and is also at Nevada.

v) WINDSWEPT THUMB

This is played on a keyboard (I don't think the guitar plays in this bit)
though it sounds fine on a guitar if you're careful to let the notes ring
out fully.  Note it's played an octave higher that this for the verses on
the keyboard.

Intro, and three verses (x4)

Engage panic circuits!
I have used XXX to indicate "pluck wildly at the same note for a while".
Not sure about the first chord!  Parts of this are completely wild.  I
love it, but I can't play it very well, or hear it!  Here's my best shot,
but I'm sure I've left several notes out in parts!

CHILDHOODS END?

Need a good bit of delay here, as for Kayleigh.  I guess the delay
parameters remain the same for the whole album, it's just switched on
and off as required.

Repeat for intro and verse:

   -------------------------------------- 
   -------------------------------------- 
   -11------------------11--------------- 
   ----12--14p11----------12---14-11-----
   --------------12------------------12-- 
   --------------------------------------

Repeat chords for chorus:
(almost the same chords as the Kayleigh chorus!)
   -7--------9----5---------10-------9----7------- 
   -9--------10---7---------10-------10---9------- 
   -9--------9----7---------11-------9----9-------

WHITE FEATHER

Okay, this has already been done by Dan Newcombe (it's at Nevada),
but to me it sounds a little different, so I've included my own
version.  The effects used make it really difficult to hear - I guess
everyone hears it differently!  But anyway...

   ------------------------12--------------------------------------- 
   --------10------10---------------10--8h10p8-7-8--8p7------------- 
   -----------9-------9---------------------------------7----------- 
   --7----------------------------------------------------7--------- 
   ----------------------------------------------------------------- 
   ----------------------------------------------------------------- 

   ----------------------------------------------------------------- 
   ----------------------------------------------------------------- 
   --9--7h9p7--6h7p6------------------------------------------------ 
   -------------------9--7------------------------------------------ 
   ----------------------------------------------------------------- 
   ----------------------------------------------------------------- 

To me it sounds like Steve plays pretty much the same throughout the
song, but replaces some of the fiddly bits with equivalent chords and
strums them a few times during the verses...?

Towards the end, there is a bit of a solo based around these notes.

And that's it!

Email correspondance welcome,

Dan
