The chord positions are relative to the capo in order
to avoid the horror of transposition.

Intro
----D----D5----D----Gsus----Amin7sus4----D---

continuing into verses:

    D      D5   D      Gsus
The sudden rush of temptation
    Amin7sus4     D
Of drizzle on my window
    D  D5  D   Gsus
To go out and swim in the
  Amin7sus4   D  D5 D
Streets with you
    F                  G
To turn the world into Venice
    Bb
To let the water shrink me
  D    D5    D  Gsus
Let me float in my umbrella
Amin7sus4  D  D5 D
Boat with you

It continues in the same fashion and progression. The lead and
accompaniment parts are not too terribly hard to approximate.
Keep a tight right hand.

Elegantly simple, brilliant song.
The line 'stampeding stallions of foam...' seems to be a tip of the
hat to a brief scene in the old animated version of Tolkien's Lord
of the Rings, in which one of the magicians had added frothy white
horse figures to a spell of a rushing wave of water, as a personal
touch. I haven't seen that film since I was just a kid, I don't
recall too much about it......

I hope someone can use this song; I have never transcribed a song
online before, so please forgive any glaring mistakes.
cheers, Noel

She' King

(Willson-Piper)

Taken from Shadow Cabinet

G    C          D
An unbelievable time
I would rush to find
Even if I thought that it might threaten me.

A thousand things to do
To follow them all through
Things to learn and see and they will better me.

Am C          G       D
I would rush to find

Am             C             G     D
Thumping hard, banging in my mind

Am            C       G    D
It's so easy, easy to fly,

Am          C      D
If you try. If you try ...

She's King

Sheeeeeee 's

You Whisper

(Willson-Piper)

Taken from Shadow Cabinet
Transribed by Fenton

One of the songs that I had wanted to figure out (on guitar) more than
anything was You Whisper, off of MWP's Art Attack.  For the longest time
(2 years or so) I couldn't.  This made me less than pleased.  [Fast
forward to present.]  I've been playing around with a riff that faintly
reminded me of something I've heard before, but couldn't quite place it.
Then it struck me: You Whisper (okay, so you saw that coming--I didn't).
I threw the CD in and figured it out in about  six minutes (many of those
minutes spent figuring out that he uses a capo (:  ).  Anyway, I was very
happy.  Here it is:

   *capo 2nd fret

                                    C (walk down)

chorus:

Am      G/B     C       C/G  (x32013)

G


I'm not 100% on the arpeggiations, but i believe that the chords and the
walk-downs are right.  I was happy to figure it out.
