Larks' Tongues in Aspic Part II
by Robert Fripp
Transcribed by Colin Marston

This is a very confusing piece.  I've got most of the song here, but in
some sections I have no idea what's going on.

note- I've put the guitar and violin parts together to keep us all a little bit more sane.

HAVE FUN!

FINALE!!!
I really have no idea what's going on in the finale.  Here's an
idea, but all you really have to do is make a lot of noise.

guitar (quickly strumming)
- --22----22----22----22----22--
- --19----22----19----19----19--
- --19----19----19----19----19--

- --7-----10----11----10----3--
- --7-----7-----7-----7-----4--
- --0-----0-----0-----0-----5--
- --------------------------5--
- --------------------------3--


you might want to try just playing the melody:
- --10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-----------------------------------------
- --------------------------10-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-
- ------------------------------------------------------------------

- ------------------(------)----------------------------------------
- --7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-(4-or--)----------------------------------------
- ------------------------------------------------------------------
- ------------------------------------------------------------------
- ------------------------------------------------------------------

Anyway, whatever it is, it happens three times and on the third
just let whatever chord you've decided to end with ring for a long
time.  Thanks for playing the game!  If you have any comments or
suggestions, you can E-Mail me at WrongWayCM at AOL dot com

Larks' Tongues in Aspic Part Two
(Updated)

This piece has already been thoroughly transcribed by Colin Marston (above),
and I did use it to help me on a few parts of this – however, with modern 
technology on my side I’ve been able to clean it up.  Here we go.

*If this is your first time viewing this tab, I suggest you read the notes at the bottom.

Finale
This is, as expected, the part I’m the least sure about.  It seems Robert is 
using his chord strumming “banjo” technique here.  This should sound pretty close:

*Each chord is held and strummed vigorously
|-/22------\17---\14---\10-------
|-/19------\14---\11---\7--------
|-/19------\14---\11---\7--------

Notes:
• This is for guitar only.
• Space is almost equal to time.  Quicker parts are closer together, slower 
  parts are further apart, but it isn’t perfect – just listen to the song, it’s easier 
  for both of us.
• Much time was spent deliberating over the aggressive chords... I used my ears 
  and my eyes, and this is what I got.  They’re all *extremely* close, if not dead-on.
  (Live footage was used to look at fingerings.  Also, the third chord does sound 
  uncharacteristically pretty.  Much time and effort was spent on this one, and I am almost 
  100% positive it is correct – listen very, very closely, watch some videos, and if you don’t
  like it just use something else.)
• Many times the violin modulates above the guitar, while the guitar stays the same.
• I believe Fripp plays/played this piece on an at least 24-fret guitar.  For those 
  with guitars which don’t reach that high, I’ve transposed the high parts up a string.
