TRIED AND TRUE - words and music by Ween
**from the album "Quebec"

The intro riff for this song is basically a C-cord arpeggio thingy.
I put the G in there to convey the feel of the bass; others may come
up with something more appropriate.

Curt thinks that it's an Am during the verse instead of a G...
And Ryan thinks its a Dsus2 not a Dm...

Tried And True - by Ween

C G Em Dm
At the dawn I woke, I was alone, rising
C G Em Dm
I called upon the force of time and space, calling
C G Em Dm
And as she came to me I fell back down, realizing
C G Em Dm
That it?s cool for you to love me now, I?m everything

F Em F Em
Everything-cause? tried and true, I see the light in you
F Em D
Can you dig in my soul, could you smell my whole-life?

C G Em Dm
You bent the edge, eclipsed and turned around, aligning
C G Em Dm
And through the dark sparked rays of violet light, blinding
C G Em Dm
I went about the job of sowing thoughts and feelings
C G Em Dm
Some were good, some bad, I felt the cries of healing

F Em F Em
Cause? tried and true, I see the light in you
F Em D
Can you dig in my soul, could you smell my whole-life?

C Dm C Dm
Rise my Dawn, you?ve been awake too long
C Dm D
Let me rest in time while I blow your mind

Hi ! This is a version of the solo out of Live gigs (all request show :-) ),
it's not exactly the same on the original track but it would be a good guide.
Here it is :

First part :
Then play aroun Dm

e:--8--7--5------------------------- --1--1--------3po1-----------
B:--x--------8--6--5---------------- --3-----3-----------3-----3--
G:--------------------7--5--7--4~--- --2--------2-----------2-----
D:---------------------------------- --0--------------------------
A:---------------------------------- -----------------------------
E:---------------------------------- -----------------------------

x2

e:--8--7--5------------------------- -----------------------------
B:--x--------8--6--5---------------- -----------------------------
G:--------------------7--5--7--4~--- --7br--5--7br----7br--5--7br-
D:---------------------------------- -----------------------------
A:---------------------------------- -----------------------------
E:---------------------------------- -----------------------------

Second part :


e:----------------------------------------------------------------------------
B:------------------------------------------------10-11-10--------------------
G:--10-10-10-10-10-12-14-12-10-9-9-7-9----9-10-12----------12-10-9---9-9-7-9--
D:----------------------------------------------------------------------------
A:----------------------------------------------------------------------------
E:----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I can't tab the timing
e:---------------------------------------------
B:-----10----10----10-8-8-8-10-8-8-8-8--8-8-8--
G:--10----10----10----9-9-9-9--9---------------
D:---------------------------------------------
A:---------------------------------------------
E:---------------------------------------------

so I may miss some notes (B:-8- or -6-)
e:------------------------------------------
B:--8-8-8--6-6-6--6-6-6-6s5~----------------
G:------------------------------------------
D:------------------------------------------
A:------------------------------------------
