talking of calculus... heres a question for frank, or anyone:

the curve C has parametric equations x = sint , y = sin2t, 0<t<pi/2
a) find the area of the region bounded by C and the x-axis

and, if this region is revolved through 2pi radians about the x-axis,
b) fint the volume of the solid formed.


i can do part a, but cant do part b. if someone could lead me through it step by step, that would be lovely. thanks.

Hmmm. My friend's awesome at maths but she just can't think logically.
So that's not necessarily true :)


physics > maths > su doku?!

well - you can never really get to a really high level in maths without logic, i reckon.
i do like su doku but i find it a bit repetitive. PLUS normal su doku gets boring and the killer ones are too hard.

David - is that A2 maths?

volumes of revolution arent particularly tricky, its just definite integration between the two values of X you should have.
Its not hard as the 2pi radians is 360 degrees anyway

it wasnt the volumes of revolution that i was finding hard. it was one of the integrations of a certain trigonometric function. something like sin^2 2t cost. anyway, i gave up in the end. probably something to do with double angle formula.

In case anyone was wondering I tried working out This Town Aint Big Enough for the one of me:

Verse:
E/A/E B/C#m/A/A7 E/B/A/E

B

Chorus:
E/Emaj7/E6/E x 2 A/B/A/B C#m/F#/G/A/E

I'd still like to, etc.:
C#m/F#/C#m/F# A/C/D x2 E/A/B x 2

Not too sure about the bit in bold, but it sounds alright. Its easier with a capo and to do it in D instead of E but I should probably let the man speak.

Would love some basic chords for some MD songs, preferably After the Rush Hour, To Whom It May Concern and Living the Dream.

Not completely sure but these chords sound ok to ATRH (i think, if Frank would verify)
Capo at 3rd fret, chord names are relative to the transposed key.
Cmaj7/G Em/B D/A(hammer on E to Fsharp) Bm6
Are the main progression, sometimes Frank plays Bm6 Asus2 in the last bar i.e. 'A place I can call mine'
Chorus=G D G G
G D Cmaj7/G etc
'And I promise not to...
A A G7 G7 Bb Bb A A

hi, i don't know if this has been posted before or whatever, but i felt compelled to work out 'gap year' after i heard it on ear music, so i thought i might as well post it so that people can rip me down for getting it all wrong.

EDIT: a few chords changed after frank's comment.

Code: Select all

FRANK TURNER - I REALLY DON'T CARE WHAT YOU DID ON YOUR GAP YEAR



         D      D/A          D           D/A
 We were only supposed to go out for the night,
          D          D/A       D            
 But it's been a few hours now since it got light -
         A7            Gmin7                          D      D/A    D    D/A
 We're a mess, and the worst part is we couldn't care less.
         D            D/A          D          D/A
 There's water in the ash-tray and ash in the sink,
     D               D/A                  D         
 The carpet's mostly soaking, but there's nothing to drink -
         A7               Gmin7                      D
 We're a state, and we're starting to regret staying awake.


          G   F#     Bm        A     Em
 And I'll pay for my sins when I get paid,
           G  F#      Bm         A     Em
 I'll stop talking to girls when I get laid.
               G    F#          Bm     A     Em
 I should have gone home when I could, but I stayed.
            G             A            D      D/A    D    D/A
 But then I never was the clever one.


 We were only supposed to go out for the night,
 I did my best to go home but in the end I lost the fight with myself -
 To be honest I was hoping I'd go home with someone else.
 And right about now I should be starting my day,
 But instead I am sat here downing the dregs of yesterday,
 All the while trying to prop up both ends of my smile.


          G   F#     Bm        A     Em
 And I'll pay for my sins when I get paid,
           G  F#      Bm         A     Em
 I'll stop talking to girls when I get laid.
               G    F#          Bm     A     Em
 I should have gone home when I could, but I stayed.
            G             A          
 But then I never was the clever one.
     C          G          D            C
 But always the one to not see that I'm done and
   G          A               D      D7
 I need to go home and get to sleep,
 C          G               D          C
 Always the last to see the moment has passed and
   G         A        Bm       E
 I need to admit my defeat.
         G                 A
 And I'm lonely - there, I said it.
     G                          A
 I'm lonely, but it's hard to admit it
      D        C                  G            A               D      D/A    D    D/A
 When everbody thinks that you're fine all the time and you're not.


            [see tab]
 So we were only supposed to go out for the night...
     [see tab]                                G     G/F#
 But who am I kidding? Try as I might I can't stop
            Em           A          D      D7
 Until I've squeezed out every last drop.


          G   F#     Bm        A     G     
 And I'll pay for my sins when I get paid
       G/F#         Em          A
 But I don't have a penny to my name.
           G  F#      Bm         A     G
 I'll stop talking to girls when I get laid
       G/F#          Em         A
 But I haven't had a shower for days.
             G    F#          Bm          E 
 I should've gone home when I could but I stayed,
          G       A
 And so I stay up alone,
         G         A
 And set off on my own
        G               A7              D
 To the station where I catch the first train.



the last verse goes something like:

e ---------5-------3-----------2-------------------
B ---------6-------5-----------3-------------------
G ---------0-------0-----------2-------------------
D -----------------------------0-------------------
A -------------------------------------------------
E -------------------------------------------------
   we were only supposed to go out for the night...

corrections anyone?

it's G minor 7 rather than Bb in the verses, and there's no Bminor in the final section of the song, plsu the tab is a bit skewed, but otherwise spot on.
