Astral Plane


This song has two main riffs. listen to the record to get the feeling
of the time, etc, but the basic rifs are the "E riff":


e-0---0----------------0--
B-0---0----------------0--
G-1---1----------------1--
D-2---2----------------2--
A-2---2----------------2--
E-0---0---3---5---3----0--

I guess that would be written as E   E/G  E/A  E/G  E , but it is
easier for me to think of it this way.

The "A riff" is about the same except it uses an A intead of an E.


e-0---0----------------0--
B-2---2----------------2--
G-2---2----------------2--
D-2---2----------------2--
A-0---0----------------0--
E-X---X---3---5---3----X--


The chord progression during the organ solos sounds like:

E A E B E

Here are the lyrics with the chords:



(N.C. means "No Chord")


[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/m/modern_lovers/astral_plane_crd.html ]
N.C.                            E (hit the three high strings)
Tonight I'm all alone in my room
N.C.                        E
I'll go insane if you won't sleep with me
         E
Or still be with you
E
I'm gonna meet you on the astral plane
E riff
The astral plane for dark at night
E     N.C.                    E
The astral plane or I'll go insane

E riff
Well I don't see you and it's getting dark
E riff
Today we should have gone to Central Park
A riff
Well don't you want to see me ever again?
E   N.C.
If not I'll meet you on the astral plane
E riff
The astral plane for late at night
E riff         E  N.C.          E riff
The astral plane or I'd go insane

(Organ solo)
E A E B E, (etc.)

E riff
Well we've known each other from other lives
E riff
I want to see you today
A riff
But I'll prove my knowledge of what's inside
E  N.C.
When I intercept you on the astral plane
E riff
The astral plane for late at night
E riff            E N.C.          E riff
The astral plane or I'll go insane

Alright

E A E B E

E riff
Well I don't see you and it's getting dark
E riff
I'd have a lot to say
A riff
But you're not the one that I can say it to
E riff
At least not today
E riff
Oh, well I don't remember it afterwords
E riff
I don't yet know the words!
E riff
But I know we've been together just this week
E riff
We've been together on the astral plane
E riff
The astral plane for late at night
E riff
The astral plane or I'd go insane

(and so on . . . . )
{repeat first verse}
