Youre In The Air guitar tab

YOU'RE IN THE AIR

From: Tom Davies (raoul2001@hotmail.com)

Here is a tab for some bits of "You're In the Air" - probably one of my 
favourite tracks off of "Up", and therefore, the one no-one has 
transcribed yet. (If these tabs don't look like they make sense, it's 
because of the unequal spacing for letters in my e-mail program - in a 
plain text format (i.e. in Notepad or something like that), the number 
of dashes is fine!)

Some of the guitar parts are swamped underneath keyboards and organs and 
other antiquated analogue noise, so I haven't got them (yet!).

The main verse riff that accompanies "you wanted a challenge that's 
calling you higher" is something like this....


E-------------------|-----------------
B-------------------|-----------------
G-------------------|------------7-9--
D---7-10-7----9-----|---7-10-7-9------
A-0--------10---10--|-0---------------
E-------------------|-----------------

(The two sections are split up so you can easily read them - it's not an 
attempt to use bars or anything musical!)

This call and response pattern repeats throughout the verse until, "You 
say you want me..." which is then kinda blasted out by the organs and 
bass. The general chord pattern is, however....

E-3---3---0---0---3---0----0--------0--
B-2---2---1---1---0---1----1--------1--
G-3---3---0---0---0---2----2--------0--
D-0---0---2---2---0---2----0--------2--
A-X---X---3---3---2---0----2--------3--
E-X---X---X---X---3---0----0--------0--

  D / D / C / C / G / Am / Am w/B / C

You may want to just arpeggio these chords loosely until someone knows 
what the actual pattern is.

Then into verse two - "brighten the stars, the weather is lifting". 
Verse pattern is used again.

The second chorus is the same until the end when there's a little solo 
bit (dead easy) which I think Peter plays on his electric sitar. It 
goes...

E--------------------------------------------
B-----------------------------13-------------
G--14-14-12-14-14-12-14-14-12----14-12-12-14-  (last two notes performed 
in a sweet hammer-on)
D--------------------------------------------
A--------------------------------------------
E--------------------------------------------

This is repeated twice and then a final time, with a bit on the end.

E--------------------------------------------|---------
B-----------------------------13-------------|---------
G--14-14-12-14-14-12-14-14-12----14-12-12-14-|-7-9-9--- (more 
hammer-ons)
D--------------------------------------------|---------
A--------------------------------------------|-------0-
E--------------------------------------------|---------

This open A string then goes straight back into the verse pattern for 
verse three - "I want the stars to know they've won".

Etcetera, etcetera.

At the end, as Pete's doing his 'cer-azy' feedback, etc., there is an 
alternate bit to the verse pattern, which goes.

E--------------
B--------------
G--------------
D---7-10-7--9--
A-0--------10--
E--------------

And that's as much as I know! Please - someone with a sampler get rid of 
all those organs and find out what the nice jangly bits are in the 
chorus and the solo bits!



Lyrics:

you wanted a challenge that's calling you higher I landed on my feet by
crawling I
remember standing alone trying to forget you idling I hate to admit that
that's my
reference point but there it is you say you want me

I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air
and I am breathing

brighten the staars the weather is lifting the heavens love a love like
this it's pulling
you higher twist it and turn this around it lights from within it
dribbles your chin now
brings a smile I'm lost again I'm lost again

I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air
and I am breathing
you

I want the stars to know they've won if only to beguile the sky has
opened up again in
heaven reconciled I want you naked I want you wild I want the stars to
know they win 
give me that smile just give it me just turn it on I'm lost again

I'm what you found I'm upside down you're in the air I'm what you found
I'm upside down
you're in the air I'm what you found I'm upside down you're everywhere
you're in the air
and I am breathing you

  Hi.  I'm a huge fan, and I love your site.  I have the Automatic for the People songbook, and I'm going to get Out of Time.  I play guitar, and I'm going to start mandolin.  Your site has been very helpful to me.
  I think I figured out at least part of You're in the Air.  Right after the chorus, that sitar (I think that's what it is) plays a really cool riff.  I think this is how it is (on the high e string)

-7-7-5-7-7-5-7-7-5-10-7-5-7-

I've never written tab before, just music, so I apologize if that looks weird, but that is how it goes.  Remember, it is on the high e string.  If my tab is incorrect, you can probably figure it out by using the same format on the string in various places.

Please mail me and tell me if you like it.

Here's the tab I've found around the net, hope it helps.

Dan

remember standing alone trying to forget you idling I hate to admit that

reference point but there it is you say you want me

I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air

and I am breathing

brighten the staars the weather is lifting the heavens love a love like

this it's pulling

you higher twist it and turn this around it lights from within it

dribbles your chin now

brings a smile I'm lost again I'm lost again

I'm what you found I'm upside sown you're in the air you're in the air

and I am breathing

you

I want the stars to know they've won if only to beguile the sky has

opened up again in

heaven reconciled I want you naked I want you wild I want the stars to

know they win 

give me that smile just give it me just turn it on I'm lost again

I'm what you found I'm upside down you're in the air I'm what you found

I'm upside down

you're in the air I'm what you found I'm upside down you're everywhere

you're in the air

and I am breathing you

To Chris
    My name is Adam Bruce and this is the first song I've posted on the net and I think this site is great.  I noticed you were missing the chords and Tab for You're in the air, so here is the chord sheet.  The Tab may follow if I get the time.
Anyway this should make the archive more complete, I think you'll find it is very close to the actual, but as I'm sure you know some REM song's will never sound perfect by anyone else because of all the technical changes and mixing.  I've had a lot of music from your site and its very good so keep it up.  I also have some small corrections to make to strange currencies, but I'll do this some other time.
If you ever want to talk REM, or anything else E-mail me any time.
    Cheers!
