Re: intro to cold and ugly - strumming

Is this on the record or the new intro that they play at their shows?

Re: intro to cold and ugly - strumming

This is how I would play the main riff:

E|---------------------------------------------------------------
B|---------------------------------------------------------------
G|---------------------------------------------------------------
D|-0-xx-3p0-x-0-xxx-6p0-5--0-xx-3p0-x-0-xxx-10-10
A|-0-xx-3p0-x-0-xxx-6p0-5--0-xx-3p0-x-0-xxx-10-10
D|-0-xx-3p0-x-0-xxx-6p0-5--0-xx-3p0-x-0-xxx-10-10

That intro is from the song "A Passage to Bangkok" by Rush. That is played like this:

E|---------------------------------------------------------------
B|---------------------------------------------------------------
G|---------------------------------------------------------------
D|---------------------------------------------------------------
A|-------7---5----7/3------------------------------------------
D|--0-0---0---0--------000-7-0-5-0-7/3-------------------

These are rough guides, just listen to the song and play along...that's how you'll get it.

Re: intro to cold and ugly - strumming

yeah palm muting..... to get the CLANG adam has you may want to do both a palm mute and a string mute right before the unmuted notes, the dynamic parts, the 3s and the 6s etc...

i'm not good at alternate picking while palm muting though so sometimes it's pretty hard to get cold and ugly to sound right, the way i hold my pick doesn't leave my much room to palm mute unless i have a huge guitar like my yamaha pacifica.

That doesn't sound good in drop D, I play it like this:

*with feedback, of course*

E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
G|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
D|------------2-------0-------2p0---------------------------------------
A|-------------------------------------2----2---3--3--2-2---3p2--------
D|---2---2--------2------2------------------------------------------5----
