ICE CASTLES - words and music by Ween
**from the album "White Pepper"

the lead is near perfect to the white pepper version but i'm not
100% positive on the chords because they're done on keyboard
but i'm pretty sure about them too

you can also play this by playing the chords and doing lead
at the same time,...but i dont feel like tabbing that out
its easier this way.

**Version 2**

Okay kids, here's a version of this tune that's closer to the official
version. I haven't transcribed it as it is actually played since it's
a two guitar song. Instead I've tabbed it for one guitar, but this
should suffice. It's close e-fuckin'-nuff fer me, anyway.

PART ONE

Ebmaj. Bbmaj.
E:--------------------------------------
B:--------------------------------------
G:--12--13--15--13--12--10--10--(h/p)12-
D:--13--13--13--13--13--12--12----------
A:--------------------------------------
E:--------------------------------------
Bbmaj. Cmin. Bbmaj.
E:--------------------------------------
B:--------------------------------------
G:------10--8---(h/p)10--7--------------
D:--12--12--10-----------8--------------
A:--13----------------------------------
E:--------------------------------------

NOTE: The second pass through this section ends on the Cmin. partial chord.

HARPSICHORD PART

E:------15------------------------------
B:----------18--16--15------15----------
G:----------------------17------16--17--
D:--------------------------------------
A:--15----------------------------------
E:--------------------------------------

NOTE: Play this as is the first time through and then at the end of
the second pass play a little hammer/trill from the 16th to the 17th
frets on the G string.

PART TWO

Ebmaj. Gmaj. Cmaj.

E:--------------------------------------
B:--------------------------------------
G:--12--13--15--13--12--16--16--19--17--
D:--13--13--13--13--13--17--17--17--17--
A:--------------------------------------
E:--------------------------------------

Cmaj. Bbmaj.

E:--------------------------------------
B:--------------------------------------
G:--17--(h/p)19--15---------------------
D:--17-----------15---------------------
A:--------------------------------------
E:--------------------------------------

NOTE: Just as in the previous section resolve this
part the second time through on the Cmaj.

PART THREE

G#maj.-----Fmaj. Play 2x then into Part Two and Fin.

Live @ Stubbs version fits with a little more improvisation and repeat of the outro part at the end.
