Thu, Jun 29 2006 100 Fretboard Memories A, D, G, C, F, A#, D#, G#, C#, F#, B, E, A

Alan (Parsons) sits by the equipment recording
David (Bowie) (at Abbey Road studios) when owner
George (Harrison) walks in with his
Camel and Shiek Yer Booty
Frank (Zappa) is infiltrating behind.
Alan notices and pulls up a sharp knife.
David pulls his spring knife, and
George pulls his, the
Camel has a Jamaican machete strapped and
Frank picks it up. From the distant desert behind arrives
Bob (Marley), he is always stoned, and never has anything
sharp to say or do, (B does not have a #sharp). with
Emerson behind him holding the piano piece from Zabritzky point,
he is also a peacenick (does not have a #sharp).
Alan is touched by the peace effort.
(and he returns to the equipment without
the knife and they start over).
...
They sit on the Emerson bass string like this:
Frank is on the first fret holding his knife on the second.
George and his are 3 and 4, Alan and his are 5 and 6,
Bob and the camel and the machete are 7 8 9 (Camel# is the marked dot)
David and his spring knife are 10 and 11
and Emerson tops it off on the 12th fret, repeating.
...
from string 4 to 5 also half a note down:
sharp, just no sharp, otherwise,
watch them sitting on the Emerson base string
and pick the previous.

So for example the open strings are
