"Red" by Robert Fripp as heard on the album RED

This is an arrangement of RED. It is arranged here for 
guitar and bass. On the album there is considerable
doubling of various lines to thicken it up.

This is the opening guitar melody.

---------------------------------15-17-19-------
--------------------13-15-17--19----------------
----------13-14--16-----------------------------
-13-15-16---------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------15-17-18-------
--------------------13-15-17--19----------------
----------13-14--16-----------------------------
-13-15-16---------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------

The bass for the opening is:

-8--11-10---8---12---11-12-14-16-16----
-9--12-10---10--14---------------14----
-9--12-12---11--15---------------------
---------------------------------0-0---

-7--7--10---9---7----7---11------------
-9--8--11---9---9----8---12------------
-10-8--11---7---10---8---12------------
---------------------------------------

-8--11-10---8---12---11-12-14-15-15----
-9--12-10---10--14---------------------
-9--12-12---11--15---------------------
---------------------------------0--0--


Main Verse Riff:

----------------------------------
-3-1-3-1-3-1-3--1--3b(4)r3--1-----
-3-1-3-1-3-1-3--1--3b(4)r3--1-----
------------------------------2---
----------------------------------
--------------------------------0-

This gets transposed to positions 1 step up and 1 1/2 steps up.

Fripp also plays at the end of the riff sometimes a "sick" sounding note
which is:

(i)  and  (ii)
  s
-0---------0-------------------
-3/5-------5b(6)---------------
-------------------------------
-------------------------------
-------------------------------
-------------------------------

So the 1st verse is played if we call the main riff E , the transposed
riffs of 1 and 1 1/2 steps F# and G respectvely and including the "sick"
notes (i) and (ii) we get the sequence...

 E  E  F#  E (i)  G  G  E (i)    then 1st chorus
 
 2nd time through it is....
 
 E  E (i)  F# (ii)  E (i)        then 2nd chorus
 
The bass drones these notes as roots for this section playing octaves 
for accents.

Chorus:

This is played twice:

note that these are just the position for fingers. the rhythms

------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------
-------1-0----------1-0--------4-4-2------------
-3-0-1-----1--3-0-1-----1--3-4-------0-0-3-4----

---------------------!--------------------------
---------------0-2---!--------------------0-2---
-4-2---2-0---2-------!--------1-0---------------
-----0-----0---------!--3-0-1-----1-3-0-1-------

------------------------------------------------
-3-3-5-----------------------0-2----------------
-------4-4-2---------4-2---2--------------------
-------------0-0-3-4-----0----------------------

Then for the rest of the song these various sections are played
oveer again. You can work that out from the recording. You will
have to work out the rhythms for the bass and the chords because
notating them here would be stupid to even attempt and not worth
the time.

I hope this is fairly arrangement is fairly understandable. If 
anybody has any questions about the piece or any corrections (there
are bound to some) feel free to mail me at chuck@cs.unsw.oz.au

About the artist behind Red Tab:

King Crimson is a musical group founded by guitarist Robert Fripp and drummer Michael Giles in 1969.

They have typically been categorised as a foundational progressive rock group, although they incorporate diverse influences ranging from jazz, classical and experimental music to psychedelic, New Wave, hard rock, gamelan and folk music. King Crimson have garnered little radio or music video airplay, but gained a large cult following.[1] Their debut album, In the Court of the Crimson King, is widely regarded as a landmark in progressive rock. Their later excursions into even more unconventional territory have been influential on many contemporary musical artists.[2]

Throughout the early-1970s, King Crimson's membership fluctuated as the band explored elements of jazz and funk. As the band developed an improvisational sound influenced by hard rock, the band's personnel became more stable in the mid-1970s, before breaking up in 1974. The band re-formed in 1981 for three years, influenced by new wave and gamelan music, before breaking up again for around a decade. Following their 1994 reunion, King Crimson blended aspects of their 1980s and 1970s sound with influences from more recent musical genres, a synthesis which has continued into the 21st century.

King Crimson's membership has fluctuated considerably throughout their existence, with eighteen musicians and two lyricists passing through the ranks as full band members. Fripp, the only constant member of King Crimson, has arranged several distinct lineups, but has stated that he does not necessarily consider himself the band's leader. He describes King Crimson as "a way of doing things",[3] and notes that he never originally intended to be seen as the head of the group.[4]
