alt-J – Interlude I (Ripe and Ruin) (Tab)

alt-J – Ripe & Ruin (Tab)

alt-J’s new track 3WW has me very excited for the new album. In preparation I thought I’d have a go at Ripe & Ruin from their debut album.

Ripe & Ruin is an acappella duet (the good kind of acappella where everyone sings words and no one is doing cheesy beatboxing). But I’ve taken some liberties with the arrangement having anything between one and three notes at a time.

The only tricky part of the arrangement is the rapid jump up the neck in bar 24. Otherwise it’s pretty straightforward so you can concentrate on varying the dynamics.

    Roy Ungar has an awesome version of left hand free also by alt-j on Youtube. I have Ben wanting to learn that song since I started playing a year ago but there is no tab or tutorials like that one. That would be sweet if you your own version of that song.

    Zack: Sorry, not one of my favourite songs of theirs. But I am working up a version of Fitzpleasure.
