One Beat, "Prisstina"

I think you can do without the synthesizer but I wrote out the intro part for the guitar.  It's another quiet / loud song and the riffs sound more complex than usual.  They aren't, they just sound that way due to the magic o S-K.  Riff 0 is very cool to learn: Two 4 beat riffs call and answer each other.  It's almost like a round (think Row, Row, Row Your Boat) and starts in bar 4 of the intro.  I like how way they kind of swings back and forth.

The vocals add a great deal to the harmony as usual.

  • Quarter note = 136 or so.  Slower than average.
  • Standard tuning.
  • Tabbed where it felt good on the fretboard but there are alternatives.
  • These images a pretty big.  I hope you can be patient for the graphics to load.  (They aren't that big, I hope.)

Riffs 0, 1, and 2.
