    With the completion of Chimp Spanner's new album I say it is time we start a Chimp Spanner tab thread :bowdown:

    I do not have any tabs but I am hoping someone out there has some so we can get this thread rolling. :shred:

    I'm notoriously bad at tabs, but I might have a bash at a solo or something? Not sure which people would prefer. And I warn you I'm not very good at writing them out!

    On my home computer I have a very rough tab of the first 3-4 minutes or so of "The Mirror". Or at least I think I do, I'm sure I tabbed it out when I was learning it! Anyway, I'll have a dig for that when I'm back home this weekend.

    I'd love a decent tab of Supererogation. Its def one of my favourite Chimp Spanner songs. Maybe the opening tapping section to Bad Code would be nice as well.

    Haha same here man, that is why I started this thread :lol:

    But really all you would have to do is provide the notes. I am sure someone on here can either fix the rhythm or we can just figure out the rhythm for ourselves.

    I have been trying to figure out the opening tapping section to Bad Code but I am getting frustrated with it :realmad:

    It would be awesome if you could provide us with that part! The right notes is all I need I can get the rhythm from listening to the song :yesway:

    so i tried it, and... it´s not working. must be the fact that my hands aren´t able to understand the signals i am sending them.

    or, this is just so fucking way beyond any of my abilites that i´m unable to compute :D

    if i tap it in the speed i can achieve though, i hear that the notes are indeed correct...

    now i´ve just got to practice it until i can actually play it :D

    Haha well Paul I am working on it. Had my classical guitar recital thingy tonight for college so I could not work on it too much today, but I was starting to get my fingers around it.

    If I ever get it up to speed I will definitely make a vid :shred: Thanks again I did not really expect you to contribute to this thread but it is awesome that you are! I can't wait to order your new album. I need to make some money fast :lol:

    That's quite alright guys! I find it really interesting to see how other people play my stuff - there've been a couple of times when they've even come up with a better way of doing it :lol: so it's all good. Look forward to seeing it!!

    Requesting tabs for At the Dream's Edge and/or Under One Sky. I love those songs haha. I've been meaning to do a cover for youtube, but I've been having a hard time figuring out how to play it. Also, I'm not used to being tuned to BEADGBE lol...Haven't been tuned that high in a little over 2 years.

    Paul, Keep up the good work. You are a huge inspiration to me. I can't wait to get paid so I can buy your CD, one of the few CD's I'll actually buy, haha.

    So there is a dude on youtube who said he would sell me his tab of The Mirror for 30 bucks. I called him crazy so he raised the price to 100 bucks haha.

    Anyone wanna purchase his tab? :lol:

    DUDEZ. If you do Chimp Spanner material I will prob shit a brick.

    I am plowing through the Animals As Leaders tabs every day, they are so great. I would love to have even a few Chimp Spanner tabs from you guys! You guys are the greatest tabbing team this world has had the privilege of seeing.

    I know man, I know haha. That dude is insane. He kinda freaked me out.
