View Full Version : I Talk to the Wind (King Crimson) on tiple

08-24-2011, 11:56 AM

I was still in a prog rock mood after doing the Supper's Ready/Close to the Edge medley last week. So here's an early King Crimson song played on tiple.

When I looked up the chords of this song on Ultimate-Guitar.com a couple of years ago, it included an H7 chord. This perplexed me for a few days, until a friend Googled it and found out that in Germany a B7 chord is sometimes called H7. Internet lore claims that there was concern that the flat symbol looked too much like a B, so to avoid confusion between B and Bb the B was called an H. This makes no sense to me. But the Ultimate-Guitar chords were posted by someone from Germany, and I've seen H7 chords in a couple other postings since then.

I've listened to three Crimson albums in the last two days. And now, based on your requests, I feel like I should be ashamed for picking the easy song. Maybe I'll just play a bunch of random notes and say it's the last 10 minutes of "Moonchild".

The power went out for 40 minutes this afternoon as the tropical storm passed through. So I got out my iPod, earbuds, and Kiwaya and spent the time trying to figure out "Starless". (A lot of Gm and 2020 Am6.) If I do another video of a Crimson song, it'll probably be that one.
