Narcosis Plus

The Egyptian

Transcribed by Brian Smith



Chords used : 



G5 :   320033



C9+5 : 032033 - weird name, simple concept.  Just move two fingers down



 from the G5 chord.







Eb Thingy : X065066



  The C9 chord moved up by three frets - no barre.  Let the G string



  ring clearly and BLOCK THAT LOW E !!  Steve didn't do so at a concert



  and stopped the song half way through because something sounded 



  *really* ... ummm.... "discordant".  The low E ringing through the 



  chorus was the cause.







Db Thing : X043044



  Same as the previous chord but down two frets.  The G is still ringing



  clearly and that nasty low E should be blocked.







OK, after that lot the song is fairly simple.







Verse :



 G C9 (repeat)







Chorus :



 Eb Thingy   Db Thingy C9



The only tweak I can suggest is when you switch from G to C9 in the chorus try and sometimes hit the 2nd fret on the G string. This adds an "A" to the chord and lets you hint at what the bassline is doing in the recording.

"In Alexandria, I know a place we can go"....gotta love this song.
