       Talk About The Passion
       ======================


       Riff :    B(2)  -3-3-------3-3--------
                 G(3)  -2-2-------2-2---------   C   Asus4
                 D(4): -0-0-0-2-4-0-0-0-2-4-0---    
       
       Empty bread empty mouths combien reaction
       Empty bread empty mouths talk about the passion
       Not everyone can carry the weight of the world
       
                     3                   3
                   / / /    /    /   | / / /   /     /
                    A       G    A   |  A      G     A
       
       G          D   Bm  A       A   Asus2    A Asus2
       Talk about the passion
       
       Empty bread empty mouths combien reaction
       Empty bread empty mouths talk about the passion
       F  Em    F Em      F  Em
          Combien combien    combien de temps?
       
       
       Also, someone asked about the intro tab for Talk About The Passion :
       
           (D)*************************    (Cmaj7)****   (A)**********
       E-------------- ! ----------------! ---------! ------------------!
       B---------------! ----------------! ---3-----! ----232-----------!
       G--2--2--2-2--2-! -2--2--2-2-2-2--! --0-0----! ---2---2----------!
       D--0--0--0-2--4-! -0--0--0-2-4-0--! -2---2---! --2-----2---------!
       A---------------! ----------------! 3-----3--! -0-------0--------!
       E---------------! ----------------! ---------! ------------------!
       
       
       I also play this song by making a D without any finger on the high
       E string.  Here's how it begins :
       
       -----------------------------------------------------------------
       ------------------------3---------------0------------------------
       --------------------------2---------2-----2---------2------------
       0-0-0-2-4--0-0-0-2-4-0------0-----0---------2-----2--------------
       2-2-2------2-2-2--------------3-1-------------3-2----------------
       -----------------------------------------------------------------
       
       Then this is repeated for the chorus
       
       --------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3------------------------------
       0-0-0-0---0-0-0-0------------------------------------------------
       2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2------------------------------------------------
       2-2-2-2---2-2-2-2------------------------------------------------
       2-2-0-2---2-2-0-2---3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3------------------------------
       --------------------3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2------------------------------
       
       and this part comes after the chorus
       
       -----------------------------------------------------------------
       -------------------------0-0-0-0-0-------------------------------
       -------------------------2-2-2-2-2-------------------------------
       2-2-2-2--2-2-2-2--2-2-2--2-2-2-2-2-------------------------------
       3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3--3-3-3--2-2-2-0-2-------------------------------
       2-2-3-5--2-2-3-5--3-3-2------------------------------------------
       
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/r/rem/murmur_album_crd.html ]
       The only thing that I have figured out is the intro/verse section to
       "Talk About the Passion".  For what it's worth, here it is :
       
       1:
       2:                  1 0        1 0
       3:  2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2     0     0       0     0
       4:  0 0 0 2 4 0 0 0 2 4 0   2       0   0        0
       5:               3       2
       6:
       
       Make sure you try this, because I have a hard time remembering what I
       play without a guitar in my hands.  The second part (after the double
       notes) may be off a little bit.  They are based on the C and G
       chords, though.
       
       
       
       
       Perfect Circle
       ==============
       
       
       {Some of the chords in this song tend to elude me}
       
       F  F/G        D        F   F/G    G
          Put your hair back you get to leave
       F  F/G        D             G
          Eleven gallows on your sleeve
       F   F/G       D    F F/G     G
          Shallow figure winner's pain
       F   F/G     D      F          G      F   Dm7
          Eleven shadows way out of place
        C            F              C           Dm
       Standing two sure shoulders high in the room
       
       The last time through this part is :
       
       C            F              C           F
       Standing two sure shoulders high in the room
       
       {Same as before}
       
       Pull your dress on and stay real close
       Who might leave you where I left off
       A perfect circle of acquaintances and friends
       Drink another coin a phrase
       Heaven assure shoulders high in the room
       
       Try to win and suit your needs
       Speak out sometimes and try to win
       Standing two ___ shoulders high in the room
       
       
       
       
       Sitting Still
       =============
       
       Note : In this song and many other REM songs, there is an A9 chord.
       This chord can be interchanged with Asus2.  Here is my favorite A9
       position :
       
        (E) -0-    Its just like playing an A chord using a 5th fret
        (B) -0-    barre E chord.  If you move it to the seventh fret,
        (G) -6-    it becomes a B11.  On the 8th fret, its a Cmaj7. On
        (D) -7-    the 10th, its a D9add6.  On the 3rd fret, its a very
        (A) -7-    pretty G6 chord.  On the second, its a neat sounding F#
        (E) -5-    sort-of chord. On the first fret, Its a Mexican sounding
                   F chord.
       
       A  BaddE/F# is an easy chord.  Don't play the A-string.
       Obviously, you pick this chord - don't strum, It'll sound shitty.
       
       BaddE/F#           BaddE (normal)
       (E) -0-             -0-
       (B) -0-             -0-           To switch between these chords, move
       (G) -2-             -2-           only ONE finger.
       (D) -4-             -4-
       (A) -x-             -2-
       (E) -2-             -x-
       
       
       {The G#m chord is actually played in an "open" style}
       
       {Intro :  A9  G#m F#m /   A9 G#m B /  }
       
         E                       BaddE/F#    BaddE
        It's name a god we all agree
         E                       BaddE/F#    BaddE
        Secret stop stop it well-read
         E                       BaddE/F#    BaddE
        We could find it in the sieve
         E                       BaddE/F#    BaddE
        We could gather throw a fit
       
         B                            A
        Up to par and Katie-bar the kitchen door but not me in
         B                            A
        See them try for the big kill wasting time sitting still
       
        {Same as before}
       
        I'm the sun and you can read
        I'm the sun and you're not dead
        We could find it in the sieve
        We could gather throw a fit
       
        {Same as intro}
       
        I can hear you
       
        You can gather when I talk talk until we're blue
        You could get away from me get away from me
       
        I can hear you
        Can you hear me?
       


       
       Shaking Through
       ===============


       {Intro:}

       (E) ---5---3---2---0---
       (B) ---7---5---3---2---
       (G) ---7---5---2---0---
       (D) --steady 1/8 notes all the way
       
       {once again, there's a melody line played on the E string with
        the chords, it just alternates between D Dsus2 and Dsus4;
        with the Bm chord, its easier to play a "cheater" chord (no barre)
        then pick out the notes. Or I guess you could play straight chords if
        you're a weenie}
       
       D                Bm               D                   Bm
       Could it be that one small voice doesn't count in the world
       Em                   A    Em              A
       Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way
       
       Could this be three beaten
       Autumn marches on
       Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way
       
       D A     G   (A)  D   A  G
       Shaking through all the day
       
       Or have we gone way too far
       Taking after rain
       Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way
       Shaking through all the day
       Shaking through opportune
       Em     A         Em     A
       In my life
       
       Is that a steal
       Children of today on parade
       Yellow like a geisha dawn deny it all the way
       Shaking through all the day
       {At the end, the chorus gets played a key up for a while, so it's
        E     B    A ....    then end on A big 'ol B}
       




We Walk
=======


{Intro:  F  Fmaj7  Dm  Dm     F Fmaj7 Dm Dm}

{On the C to Am stuff, It sounds good to walk the bass note of the C
 chord down to a B before playing Am - just like Mikey Mills}

 C             Am             C                Am       C    Am  C    Am
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
 C     Am    C        Am     C  Am      Em
Take oasis more odd spaces
 F  Fmaj7 Dm              F  G
We walk through the wood we walk
 C             Am             C               Am         C  Am  C  Am
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
 C     Am    C        Am     C  Am    Em
Take oasis more odd spaces
 F  Fmaj7 Dm               F   G
We walk through the woods we walk

 Am    F   Bb  C  Am    F   Bb  C  Am    F    Bb C   Am    F   Bb {slide here}
Take oasis       take oasis       take oasis        take oasis

 Bb-B-C             Am             C               Am           C  Am   C   Am
     Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
 C     Am    C        Am  ......
Take oasis more odd spaces

{Same as before}

We walk through the world we walk
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
Take oasis more odd spaces
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
Take oasis more odd spaces
Up the stairs to the landing up the stairs into the hall
Into the hall
