CHAMPAGNE SUPERNOVA by OASIS
Taken from the album WHATS THE STORY MORNING GLORY?
Written by NOEL GALLAGHER
Tabbed out by JUSTIN KUNZ
E-mail me at KUNJUST@LYCOMING.EDU

Oasis is getting up there as one of my favorite bands, if not already.

This video is amazing, and what is even more amazing (and better too!) is 
that they (meaning the editors, not Oasis) didn't cut any of it out.

Although there are a bunch of different riffs to remember, I find 
locating proper ocean noise for the beginning is the toughest part of the 
song.

I figured I might as well do the whole thing because I love the song so 
much.  The only real tab of this is under the Morning Glory album thing, 
and it isn't too extensive.  Ok here we go.

LIST O' COMMANDS
~= let ring
[]= around number denotes harmonics
hb= half bend
b= full bend
h= hammer on
p= pick off
s= slide
stf= slide to fade... slide back down the fret as you let the sound fade


e -------------------------------------------------------------------
B ----------[12]-------10~-------10hb-------------10-12-10---10------
G ------9~---------9h11~----9-11------9h11p9--9-11---------11--9-----

A ---------------------------------------------------------7h9--7h9--
E -------------------------------------------------------------------

  0:14                                                     0:21

e -------------------------------------------------------------------
B ------10-----10~---------------------------------------------------
G --9-11---9-11----9stf----------------9~-----9~---------------------
D ---------------------------7-----9s11---11s9---7~~~~---------------
A ------------------------7h9----------------------------------------
E -------------------------------------------------------------------

OK TAKE NOTE OF THIS: they love to do these little fills here and there:

B -------10---
G --9-11------  X3

It's the 9-11-10 thing they use in those above lead parts.  They toss 
some of those fills in at 0:43, 0:57, and 1:09.  The only difference is 
they don't fade like they did in the beginning.


(Play that riff over this)

e ------------------------------------------------------------------
B --------------11--------------------------------------------------
G -9h11p9---9-10---9h11~p9----------------------9~~~----------------
D ------------------------------7--7h9p9----------------------------
A ---------------------------7-9----------9-7-----------------------
E ------------------------------------------------------------------
  (1:23)


(Play this over the beginning chords)

e --------------------------------------------------------------
B -12b-10--10------------10-12-12b-10--10-----------10-12-12b---
G -------11--11------9-11------------11--11-----9-11------------

A --------------------------------------------------------------
E --------------------------------------------------------------

(3:05)

e ------------------------------12~---------------
B -10--10------------10-12-12s14~-----------------
G ---11--11-----9-11------------------------------
D ----------9-11----------------------------------
A ------------------------------------------------
E ------------------------------------------------

NOTE: The second verse uses this little thing instead of the 9-11-10 riff 
from above. Just listen to the CD, they toss in one of these two riffs 
every so often like they did with the 9-11-10:

D -----7--  AND  G -------9-----9--
A -7-9----       D --9s11---11s9---


(Then over the bridge, the chords and counts go like this:)

AAGGD/F#D/F#FG

AAGGD/F#D/F#FG

AAGGD/F#D/F#FG

AAGGD/F#D/F#FG

FGFGAAGG

F#mF#m.......(then you are back into that beginning riff)


(If you think I'm gonna tab the 4 or 5 guitars over that noise/distortion 
bridge, you wrong)


e -----------------------------------------------------------------
B -----------------------------------------------------------------
G -----------------------------------------------------------------
D -9b--7-----7-7---9b--7--7-9-7-7--9b~~~(hold)--9~~~(release)-7----

Play little drummer boy, finish up the song, then tell me what you think:

"Champagne Supernova", written by Noel Gallagher, performed by Oasis.
Song can be found on the album "(What's the Story) Morning Glory?" and 
has been released in the U.S. as a single.

Note: There's a whole lot of stuff going on in this song (including 3
guitars), so I've tried to transcribe everything. The 1st guitar
(Bonehead) is acoustic-sounding during all verses and the 1st chorus and
plays with distortion only during the 2nd & 3rd choruses, the bridges, and
musical interlude. The second guitar (Noel) plays the intro solo and the
fills during all the verses and pre-choruses with a muffled effect, and
plays little solo parts with a dirty-sounding distortion. The 3rd guitar
(Paul Weller, I believe) steps in with a cleaner but heavier distortion to
play the guitar solo during the musical interlude.

Chords used:

  EADGBe
Asus2 (x02200) [NOTE: will be listed a #1 for short in solo parts]
Asus2/G  (3x2200) ["""  #2      ]

Tab for the chord progression used throughout each verse and the first 
chorus:

   Asus2     Asus2/G       Asus2/F#         Asus2/E

A--0--------0---------------------------------------------------------------
E--------------------3--------3--------2--------2--------0--------0---------

[NOTE: Use this rythym and chord progression when playing all verses and 
the first chorus]

Tab Key:
s = slide
/ = long downward slide
b = bend (5b6 means bend the string at the 5th fret to make the note the
string would make at the 6th fret with no bend)
r = release bend
(H) = harmonic
h = hammer on
p = pull off
^ = let note ring while making the note "vibrate"

In the following places where "Riff 1" is listed, play this:

  G2
B------10------10------10------10-------10------10------10------10--
G-9h11----9h11----9h11----9h11-----9h11----9h11----9h11----9h11-----

Here's "Riff 2":

[NOTE: When trying to learn the guitar solo, I would suggest listening to
the song and learning exactly when the soloing guitar plays which notes
relative to when the rhythym guitar changes chords. Then, follow along
with this transcription to hear the rhythym of the fills and the riffs
during the solo relative to the chord changes.]
