BIG SWIFTY - Frank Zappa ----------------------------------------- Tabbed by Howard Wright H.Wright@astro.cf.ac.uk This is based mostly on the 'Make a Jazz Noise Here' version, but it should be pretty similar to other versions - it's usually the rhythm of the bits that changes, rather than the notes themselves. It might be an idea to listen to the track from 'Jazz Noise ...' and follow the tab just so you know where the different sections come in. There are quite a few time changes - I've tried to indicate some of them (i.e fast bit, slow bit, etc) but it's best if you get used to the track a little, then it should be clear how the tab works.

A little later on the same evening : (this is where they stop noodling and the whole brass section plays this tune together - the pace kind of picks up here too) E------------------------------------------------------------ B-------10--13-----12-13-12-10-------10---------------------- G-----11--------------------------12----12----11------------- D---12------------------------------------------------------- A------------------------------------------------------------ E------------------------------------------------------------ E---------8--12----10-12-10---------------------------------- B------10-------------------13----12-13-12----10------------- G---11------------------------------------------------------ D--------------------------------------------------------- A--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- E---------12---15----14-12-14-15----14-12-14-15----14-12---- B------13------------------------------------------------15- G---14------------------------------------------------------ D----------------------------------------------------------- A----------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- E--11-12-------------------------------------------------- B----------15--13-12--13----15---------14---13------------ G------------------------14-----------------------14--12-- D--------------------------------------------------------- A--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- ^^^ stick a trill on this last note if you fancy E---------------------------------------------------------------- B------12--15------------12--15-------------12--15------------12- G----12--------11--12--12---------11--12--12--------11--12--12--- D--12----------------12-----------------12----------------12----- A---------------------------------------------------------------- E---------------------------------------------------------------- Carmen ! --------- E--------------------------------------------------------- B---15-14-13-13--13-12-11-10---10-9-8-6-8p6p5-6--8--6--5-- G--------------------------------------------------------- D--------------------------------------------------------- A--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- B--/15--14--13-13-13-12-11--10---10-8-6--5-6p5---5-6-5---- G----------------------------------------------7--------7- D--------------------------------------------------------- A--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- E------------------------------------------7----------------- B--------7---10--7---------7-8-10-10-10-10---10-8------------ G----7-9-----------9-7---9----------------------------------- D--7------------------------------------------------------- A--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- E-----------7----------------7-7-7-7-9-7------------------- B-------7-8---8-7-----7-8-10------------------------------- G-----9-----------9---------------------------------------- D---9------------------------------------------------------ A--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- 1812 Overture bit : --------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- B----------8---------8------------------8---------8--------- G-----8-10---10-8-10----8---8------8-10---10-8-10----8---8- D---8----------------------------8-------------------------- A--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- B--------------------------------------------------------- G-----10-12-10----------10---------10-------8-10-8---------------------- D--10----------10----10----10----10-------8--------8----8-------------- A-----------------11----------11---------------------10--------- E--------------------------------------------------------- E-------------------- B-------------------- G--8--------8-------- D----8----8---------- A------10------------ E-------------------- Repeat the last three lines once - as you get to the last few notes, start playing in the wrong key - and add a few odd notes at the end too ! (That's what they do !) Now it goes back to that chord sequence : C#7#5 C7#5 B7#5 etc etc Go through this a few times .... After quite a bit more noodling, and the sampled voices section (with water noises) it comes back to the swifty tune but a slightly different version : Swifty tune version 2: ----------------------- (fairly slow) E----------------------------------------9----------------- B---7-8-8-7-8-7-8-7-8-8-7-8-8-7-8-7-8/10-----10-8-7-8-7---- G-------------------------------------------------------9-- D--------------------------------------------------------- A--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------9----12--12/- B--7-8--8p7-8-8--7-8-8p7-8-8p7-8-8p7-8-8p7-8-10-12---10------- G---------------------------------------------------------- D--------------------------------------------------------- A--------------------------------------------------------- E--------------------------------------------------------- (now a lot faster !)
