All I Am
--------

by dada        From the album "American Highway Flower"

Transcribed by Jeff Matson ([email protected])

as far as i can tell, this song is based almost exclusively around a simple
riff and a nice, easy picking pattern for the chorus.  because i'm feeling
really lazy, i'm only going to provide these two parts, and let you folks
out there figure out what goes where in the song.  if you have the album,
it's really easy to do anyway.

Verse Chords

the key to this part is to alternate a Bm with a plain ol' second-fret
barre (222222) and then end with a G (355433)

Bm Bm (222222) Bm Bm (222222) Bm Bm (222222) G G


Chorus Picking

okay, now that you've mastered that part, here is my rough idea of the picking
that goes on in the chorus.

e -------0------------0------------0------------0---------|
B ---3-----3------3-----3------3-----3------3-----3-------|
G -----2-----2--0---0-----0--1---1-----1--0---0-----0-----|
D -0------------------------------------------------------|
                                          ^^^^^^^^^^^^
                                          in some repetitions of the chorus
                                          picking this part is omitted and a
                                          G chord is struck, usually to lead
                                          back into the verse chords.

As far as I can tell, the really fast parts are the same as the verse chords,
only faster and choppier.

if anyone feels like cleaning up or adding to this, please feel free.

About the artist behind All I Am Chords:

Dada or Dadaism is a cultural movement that began in neutral Zürich, Switzerland, during World War I and peaked from 1916 to 1920. The movement primarily involved visual arts, literature (poetry, art manifestoes, art theory), theatre, and graphic design, and concentrated its anti war politic through a rejection of the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. Dada activities included public gatherings, demonstrations, and publication of art/literary journals. Passionate coverage of art, politics, and culture filled their publications. The movement influenced later styles, Avant-garde and Downtown music movements, and groups including Surrealism, Nouveau Réalisme, Pop Art and Fluxus.



Dada is the groundwork to abstract art and sound poetry, a starting point for performance art, a prelude to postmodernism, an influence on pop art, a celebration of antiart to be later embraced for anarcho-political uses in the 1960s and the movement that lay the foundation for Surrealism.
