I Am A Man of Constant Sorrow ------------------------------- By The Soggy Bottom Boys, featuring Dan Tyminski Transcribed by Howard Wright This is a transcription of the song "I am a man of constant sorrow" by The Soggy Bottom Boys, as featured in the Coen Brothers film "O Brother Where Art Thou?". There are several versions of the song in the film - this is a transcription of the "Radio Station" version, which features some great, bluesy guitar playing (this is the first time the song is heard in the film). Tuning ------- The guitar part is played in an alternative tuning - the notes to tune the open strings are (low to high): DADGAD. You also need to use a capo at the 3rd fret. The only way to play this song and get it to sound right is to use the DADGAD tuning - you can't play the part in standard tuning. For those who havn't tried altered tunings before, this tuning is a fairly easy one to use. Starting with a guitar tuned in standard tuning, you need to: * tune the bottom E down two semitones to D * tune the B string down two semitones to A * tune the top E down two semitones to D When tuning the E strings down, compare with the 4th string (D) to get the right note. When tuning the B string down, compare with the 5th string (A). In "Joni Mitchell tunings notation" the DADGAD tuning is written as D75525. This tunings notation is useful as it tells you where you should fret a string in order to get the note to tune the next open string to. More details at Chord Shapes ------------- NB all tablature and chord shapes are written relative to the capo at the 3rd fret. In other words, a "1" means 1 fret above the capo position. Chord names are written at the sounding pitch (with DADGAD tuning and capo at the 3rd fret, the song ends up in the key of F). The song only uses three basic chords, but it's the variations on these basic shapes, the fills between the chords and the rhythm playing that makes the guitar part sound so good. The main chord shapes are: DADGAD DADGAD DADGAD 00020x 5500xx x02222 F5 Bb5 Csus2 The top couple of strings are not played very often, and much of the guitar part uses just the bottom four or five strings. A very simplified view of the basic changes for the verse and chorus is given in the tablature below (chord names in brackets above the tab). Verse: (F5) (Bb5) (Csus2) D------------------------------------------------ A----------------------2------------------------- G--2-------2------0----2--------2---------------- D--0-------0------0----2--------0---------------- A--0-------0------5----0--------0---------------- D--0--3/5--0---3--5-------3b4---0---------------- (repeat above line once) Chorus: (Csus2) (F5) D-------------------------- A---2---------------------- G---2-----2---------------- D---2-----0---------------- A---0-----0---------------- D---------0---------------- Below, I've transcribed the guitar part in detail, up to the end of the first chorus. Try and see how the basic changes (above) are mixed with quieter strums and short runs/fills to create the complete guitar part. I wouldn't try and learn the part note for note - work through the tab to get the main ideas then try to follow the basic changes but making up your own fills and ad libs. Here's the full tab from the intro up to the end of the first chorus (the ending is also written out): INTRO ------ NB - a lot of the bends on the 3rd fret bottom string are written as: ----3b4------ but they usually don't quite go up a full semitone, so bend up most of the way but leave the note a bit flat.
