Subject: TAB: The Swamp Song  by Oasis

>From Fred Lidskog 

The Swamp Song, written by Noel Gallagher, performed by Oasis & Paul
Weller (I think).
Song can be found on the UK "Wonderwall" single and in parts on the album
"(What's The Story) Morning Glory?".

NOTE: What you'll hear in this live jam session is Bonehead playing one
part pretty much over and over again, Noel doing some fills and soloing,
while I believe Paul Weller does most of the soloing and fills and plays
the harmonica as well.

TAB KEY:

b = bend (7b9 means bend the string at the 7th fret to make the note the
  string would play at the 9th fret with no bend)
r = release bend
s = slide
h = hammer on
p = pull off


So, first of all, here's the basic riff that Bonehead (guitar #1) is
playing through most of the song:

    Am
e-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G------------0--2--------------------------2--0--2----------------------|
D----------------------------------0---------------------------0--------|
A---0----0---------0---0---0---3-------0-----------0--0--0--3-----------|
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

NOTE: In the transcription below, every place there's an exclamation point
(!) above the tab, that's where Bonehead's riff above has been played
through one time, to help you figure out the rhythm of the song.

Before the drums and the other instruments chime in, there's a little of
this:

e-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--5--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G--5----2---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D--5----2---noise-------------------------------------------------------------|
A--3----0---------------0-----------0-------3--5--0--------0--3--0----3--5--0-|
E-----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Now, we have Noel (Guitar #2) playing some of the parts with a dirty
sounding distortion (some parts I don't have listed because they are hard
to distinguish from the background noise in this song and aren't very
important to the sound of this song as a whole, anyway), but Paul Weller
(guitar #3) does most of the soloing with the cleaner, heavier distortion
effect.

So, after Bonehead starts his riff, right at the end of the last time
through before Paul starts playing, Noel does this:

e---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G-----------7b8--7p5--5-----5-----------------------------------------------|
D------------------------7-----7--------------------------------------------|
A---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then, Paul:

  !
e-12-----12-----------------------------------------|
B-15b17--15b17r15---13--15--13--13------------------|    Repeat
G-----------------------------------14--------------|     three
D---------------------------------------------------|    times
A---------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------|

On the fourth time:

	    !
    !e--12-----12-------------------------------------------------------------|
    !B--15b17--15b17r15---13--15--13--13--------------------------------------|
    !G------------------------------------14----------------------------------|
Paul    !D--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !E------------------------------------------------------------------------|
	!
	!
    !e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !B------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !G-------------------------------------7b8--5--7--5-----------------------|
Noel    !D--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !E------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Here, for 2 times through Bonehead's riff, Noel uses a muffled guitar
effect and picks at an "Am" chord, something like this:

   Am
e--------------0------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----1--0--1------0--1-----------------------------------------------------|
G----------------------------repeat-a-few-times-----------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--0---------------------0--------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then, Paul:

 !
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-----------------------------------------------------------13--15b17r15--13-|
G-12--14^^^--12--12----12--14^^--12--14^^--12--14--14^^--14------------------|
D----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A----------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E----------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B---------------13--15b17r15--13--15b17------------15--15b17r15--13-------|
G--14--14---14---------------------------14----14-------------------------|

A-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--15p13-----------13--15b17--b17--b16.5--b16.5--15--13--15p13-----------|
G---------14---14-----------------------------------------------14-------|
D------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Here's where the song kind of stops for a minute:

    !e--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !B--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !G--------6b7r6-----------------------6b7r6b7r6b7r6b7r6b7-------------|

    !G--b9r8-----------------b8r7--5--------------------------------------|
Paul    !D--------------------------------7-------------------------------|
    !A--------------------------------------------------------------------|
    !E--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Drums & Bonehead pick up again:

	   !
    !e-12-----12-------------------------------------------------------------|

Oasis - Swamp Song Tab :: indexed at Ultimate Guitar.

About the artist behind Swamp Song Tab:

Oasis are an English rock band that formed in Manchester in 1991. The group was formed by Liam Gallagher (lead vocals), Paul Arthurs (guitar), Paul McGuigan (bass) and Tony McCarroll (drums), who were soon joined by Liam's older brother Noel Gallagher (lead guitar, vocals). Oasis have sold more than 50 million albums worldwide,[1] and have had eight UK number one singles. The Gallagher brothers are the band's leading songwriters and the only continual members. The present lineup is completed by rhythm/lead guitarist and songwriter Gem Archer, guitarist and songwriter Andy Bell and unofficial drummer Zak Starkey.

The band initially gained prominence performing on the Manchester club circuit. They were signed to independent record label Creation Records and afterwards released their debut album Definitely Maybe in 1994. The following year, the band recorded (What's the Story) Morning Glory? (1995) with their new drummer Alan White, whilst rivalling with Britpop peers Blur in the charts. The Gallagher brothers were featured regularly in tabloid newspapers for their sibling rivalry and wild lifestyles, cultivating reputations both as bad boys and as a band of the people. At the height of their fame, Oasis' third album, Be Here Now (1997), became the fastest-selling album in UK chart history, but lost much of its long-term appeal after the initial hype and positive reception tempered.

While recording their fourth album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants (2000) in 1999, Oasis lost two founding members and suffered a notable decline in popularity in America. The band added replacements Gem Archer and Andy Bell for Heathen Chemistry (2002). Their sixth album Don't Believe the Truth (2005) with Zak Starkey, despite turbulent recording, became their best-selling and best-received album in a decade. The following year, the band released a compilation album entitled Stop the Clocks. In February 2007, Oasis received the BRIT Award for outstanding contribution to music.

The seventh studio album by the band is reported to be complete and, although an official release date has not been confirmed, both Liam and Noel Gallagher have been quoted as saying that the album is due out in September 2008. [2] [3]
