Cry Free


Recorded during the "In Rock" sessions 1970. 
Now included on the remastered CD of "In Rock".

The Transcription takes you through before the bridge which leads 
into the guitar solo. The Transcription covers the intro and verse parts. 

The tune starts off with the following chromatic sequence : 

e |------------------|----------------| => To Main Riff 
B |------------------|----------------| 
G |------------------|----------------| 
D |----------------- |----------------| 
A |-5--6--7----------|--2--3--4--5----| 
E |---------3--4--5--|----------------| 

Main Riff 

e |----------------|----------------|----------------|

G |----------------|----------------|----------------| 
D |---------------5|---------------5|---------------5| 
A |-7-7-7-7-7-7-77-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-77-|-7-7-7-7-7-7-77-| 
E |----------------|----------------|----------------|

B |----------------|-------------| 
G |----------------|-------------| 
D |----------------|-------------| 
A |-7-7-7-7-7-7-77-|---7---6---5-| 
E |----------------|-------------| 

Like a lot of the tunes on In Rock, the verse rhythm is based on 
the descending sequence from Bar 5 of the main riff.

Then when Ian Sings "Cry.......Free" play this :

G |-9-(hold)------|-11-(hold)------| 
D |-9-(chord)-----|-11-(chord)-----| 
A |-7-(full bar)--|-9--(full bar)--|

After this there is bridge and 2 guitar solos. 

If you want to play, try something from the C# Blues Scale.
