From: "Og" 
Subject: Correction: TAB to "Surround" by dada

hi.  i sent this in yesterday, but i made the mistake of saying that there
should be a capo on the first fret, when in fact my guitar was tuned down a
half step when i tabbed it.  i edited the note about the capo out of the
file, and am re-submitting the correct version.  if possible, could you
simply replace the old file with the corrected version?  thanks.


by dada   From the album "Puzzle"

tabbed by Jeff Matson ([email protected])

Riff 1 (x4)

Verse: (play Riff 2 over the verses)

There's a picture on my wall
A crack in the ceiling
Cigarette burns in my hall
I get the feeling

     A(9)       Riff 1
That you...   surround me
     A(9)       Riff 1
That you...   surround me

play Riff 2 twice then
If I died a thousand times
My soul washed beside me
I will never be alone
You're always inside me

    A(9)       Riff 1
And you...   surround me
    A(9)       Riff 1
And you...   surround me

Chords under the solo:

E    D(9) riff    C     A(9)
E    D(9) riff    C     A(9)
E    D(9) riff    C     A(9)
E    D(9) riff    C*

the "D(9) riff" denotes the fact that the fourth strum of the D(9)
is actually a D(4).  If you listen to the recording carefully,
you can hear it.

the solo itself is very easy, done with a slide:

G  ---3/9---3/9---3/9---3/9---11--12-------

A(9)       Riff 1
You...   surround me
A(9)        Riff 1
And you...  surround me

As the chorus is repeated over and over at the end, the repeating portion
A(9)  Riff 1

is gradually replaced by the chords
A(9)   C   D(9)

A(9)  002200
E     022100
D(9)  xx023x
D(4)  xx0233
C     x32010
C*    x32013

About the artist behind Surround:

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.
