VERSE 1:
--------

The main riff uses a "chord" made up of 3 notes, built by stacking
up two intervals of a fourth. This chord/triad is played three times
in each bar, and the shape is moved down a semitone (one fret) 
for the second strum, then back up for the third. You need to play
the first two chords staccato (no sustain), but leave the third to
sustain.

This basic pattern is used throughout the verse, with the position of
the "triad of fourths" moving up and down the neck. On the original,
this part is played by guitar and doubled on the clavinet.

I've written a m11 chord (in brackets) above the tab to indicate the
overall harmony for the parts of the verse that use this "triad of 
fourths", but I havn't changed the chord name for each down/up shift 
of a semitone as that would have made the tab too cluttered.

Note that for the other chord changes, the chord names again reflect the
overall harmony, and not only what the rhythm guitar plays.


There's a short 5-note riff that comes in during the verse in a couple
of places. This riff is:

E-------------------------
B-------------------------
G-------------------------
D----8-9-10-----7---------
A------------7------------
E-------------------------

It's played by the guitar and bass - I've indicated where it comes
with [Riff] at the appropriate place in the lyrics.

VERSE 2:
--------

As above - except the rhythm guitar varies the main riff:

E--8--7--8---11-12-----8--7--8---7-8--x-x--8--7--8---11-12----8-7-8-
B--8--7--8---9--10-----8--7--8---7-8--x-x--8--7--8---9--10----8-7-8-
G--7--6--7---11-12-----7--6--7---6-7--x-x--7--6--7---11-12----7-6-7-
D-------------------------------------------------------------------
A-------------------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------------

Use this idea throughout the verse, with ad lib rhythmic variations.

(The 5-note riff is played only by the bass in this verse, except for
the one right at the end, after "I don't mind", which is played by bass 
and guitar)


(Am11)
Greek medallion [Riff] sparkles when you smile

(Am11)
Sorry angel [Riff] I get hungry like a child

     (Gm11)       (Am11)
Green Earrings, I remember

    Gm7   Am7  Gbsus2/Bb   Bm7  (Bm11)

    (Cm11)      A/B          G/A
I remember that look in your eye

(Am11)
I don't mind, I don't mind [Riff]



INSTRUMENTAL:
--------------

I've written out some of the great rhythm guitar playing separately
for this instrumental section. The line of tab above the chords is 
the melody line (lead guitar), and the tab below the chords is the 
rhythm guitar part. For this rhythm part, let the notes ring and 
sustain as long as possible as the different chords are spelled out.

The chord names are based mainly on the clavinet part and give the 
"overall" harmony. For the Bm7 chords you could try a Bm9 shape
(e.g 797779 or 7 9 7 7 10 9) as an alternative.

The last note of the lead guitar part (melody line) is bent up 
very slowly.



(short drum break for a bar or so)


First Guitar Solo:
-------------------

This is another great solo by Denny Dias. To keep the runs sounding
fluid you have to use all your fingers - the fourth finger in particular
is used a lot (the first slide should be played with the 4th finger).

Second Guitar Solo:
--------------------

The 2nd guitar solo is played over the main riff (Am11).
The rhythm guitar uses the same patterns as Verse 2.

                         ^^^^^^^^^    
                   There are actually a lot more notes here than 
                   I've written out, so just repeat the note very 
                   fast (listen to the original to get the idea).

After the solo, the song returns to the verse at the point where 
the main riff moves down to Gm11: 



     (Gm11)       (Am11)
Green Earrings, I remember

    Gm7   Am7  Gbsus2/Bb   Bm7  (Bm11)
The rings of   rare     design

(Am11)
I don't mind, I don't mind


B/E  A/D     A/D  G/C      B/E  A/D    A/D  G/C


Outtro:
--------

Repeat the main riff over an A bass and fade.



Chord Shapes:
--------------

Just to make typing easier, a=10, b=11


EADGBE    EADGBE    EADGBE    EADGBE   
x0778x    x79877    x57655    x35433    
 
A7sus4      B/E       A/D       G/C      



EADGBE    EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE 
3xx331    5xx553     6xx674     7xx775     

 Gm7       Am7      Gbsus2/Bb     Bm7      

The shapes above work well for "rings of rare design" line, 
but you might find them a bit awkward to play. I think they 
echo the sound of the vocal harmonies nicely, but you can try
the following shapes for something a bit easier:

EADGBE    EADGBE     EADGBE     EADGBE 
3x333x    5x555x     6x667x     7x777x

          ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
          For a smoother change between these
          two chords, leave off the top note.
