When I first heard that LP I was mesmerized. I listened to it every day straight through for a month. I had just left my home in Michigan and was alone in Seattle. It's fun to hear you doing it. I think a great one would be to do The Carpet Crawlers. I'm not good enough yet but I might see if someone has done some chords for it. It looks like you had a lot of fun on that one.

It's pretty easy to do a basic version of The Carpet Crawlers. I haven't done a video yet, because I'm having a hard time getting through the whole thing vocally without blowing my voice out.

The verses are just D and Em. The chorus is:

The carpet crawlers heed their callers
We've got to get in to get out
We've got to get in to get out
D C Em
We've got to get in --- to get out

The intro is a little busier, but it's also the same as the bridge on "The Lamb", so if you learn it you're well on your way to knowing two songs.
