Damien Rice – 9 Crimes (Tab)

Damien Rice – 9 Crimes (Instrumental Tab)

Happy St Patrick’s Day! To celebrate I arranged my favourite song by my second favourite Irish songwriter (can’t can The Van).

One of the things I love about arranging tunes is noticing little things that completely passed me by listening casually. I didn’t realise that the melody in the chorus shifts against the chords. The basic chords though the whole song are Am-F-C-G. The first, “Is that alright?” is on the Am and later it’s on the F chord. Of course, I completely ruin it by arranging them both exactly the same way.

    I’m really excited to learn this, I’ve done my own version of this song for many years but this is a far superior arrangement.
    Thanks very much woodshed :)

    This is beautiful! I’m not saying it enough: thank you for sharing <3
    I'm too far a beginner for this song, I can't play it yet but I can at least appreciate your rendition. This is so sweet to the ear.

    Like this one very much–thank you for that. Now how about one for the “Detectorists” theme (not sure of the song title)? That might sound good on uke.

    Doug: Thanks! Sorry, no plans to do that one.
