Rest My Chemistry transcription

Phew! Finally finished it! Well, sort of—as usual it’s missing the drum part unfortunately. I’ll post an analysis later, just wanted to get this up here. Notice I “hid” an instrument when it wasn’t playing, so be sure to look at the beginning of the staff to see which instrument it is. Also, if any of you find a mistake in any of my transcriptions, please let me know! Below is page 1, click here to download the PDF of the whole thing.

Rest My Chemistry

Update! Per Fran’s request click here to download the transcription with guitar tabs!

  1. One more time, big thank you Meg ! … looking fwd your analysis. Hope it will be another great video πŸ˜‰

    As it is quite tough for many of us to properly read pentagrams ( mostly guitar players used to read tabs instead of pentagrams) …. does your transcription software allow to automatically convert lead and rhythm instruments in TAB mode ?? if yes, would you please share it πŸ˜€ ?

    warm regards !

  2. Thanks for reading, Fran! I’ve updated the post with a download for tabs—just let me know if it doesn’t look right! It’s the first time I’m using that function on my notation software!

  3. Thanks so much !

    Piano players are lucky to play two voices at the same time, as we guitar players only one…so we must be more acurate to sound like the original.

    Quite funny to see how your tab software translates proper notes to tabs….

    I was looking at Danier here

    and other tabs made by other guitar aficionados, and we believe Daniel rhythm is like this


    What do you think ?

  4. Yeah, that makes much more sense, Fran! Alas, I never did get very good at tabs; I tried to learn when I was a teenager, but it was just easier for me to use the staff notation! I wish I’d spent more time learning the guitar. Thanks for posting the video, it looks like I need to combine some of the guitar stuff onto one line, I didn’t realize Daniel was playing that all himself!

  5. full guitar tabs here:

    if you can play a slide or a bend with a piano, let us know πŸ˜‰
    …although Interpol never does bending effects.

    btw … when you can, would you please share tabs in your Specialist transcripion ? …. thanks again !

    • Hey Fran, so it turns out entering tabs into my notation program, Sibelius 5, is *a lot* more difficult than just copying and pasting the staff notation onto the tab line (which is how I made the RMC tabs). I can do a copy and paste of Specialist, but I don’t know how accurate the tabs will be!

  6. awesome !… thanks a lot πŸ˜€

  7. […] some point I’d like to integrate Robbie’s transcription with my own (of the other instruments) and write a complete analysis (a gesamt-analysis [gesamtuntersuchung?], […]
