hey everyone,
I'm new to the forum, this is my first post :)
OK, well, several times in the TV series, a tune (i guess that's what you'd call it) is played. i have no idea what its called, but i looked through the episodes really quickly and found two instances where it is played.
Season 1, Episode 2 - 19:01 - 19:38
Season 2, Episode 4 - 10:07 - 10:44
This song makes me feel super nostalgic for some reason, and if anybody has tabs or chords or anything like that, it'd be great.
Also, sorry if my English isn't too good, i mainly speak Spanish.
Thank you :D

A hearty welcome to you, MCat! :wave:
Glad to have you. If you get a chance, jump over to the Introduce Yourself thread and tell us a bit about yourself. By the way, we have another member, Amanda, who also speaks Spanish. I'm sure she'll be happy to meet you.

I'm not near my dvds at the moment, but I'll try to get an answer for you about that song. Just guessing, was the first time you heard it in Ep 1 when Bret and Jemaine come upon Murray sleeping in his car, and Bret's in his woven pants? If so, I know the tune you mean, and it is sweet and nostalgic. I will check it out, though.

Your English is very good - no need to apologize. :thumb:

Hey,
thank you for the warm welcome. I'll head over to the Introduce Yourself thread in a moment. :)
i checked Episode 1 of season 2, where bret is wearing his woven pants. Thats not the song im thinking of :/

In Season 1, Episode 2, the just after Jemaine asks to be dropped off when he is in the car with Mel and Doug, the song starts playing to a series of clips of Bret (doing things like holding a hotdog sign, going out with his friends, etc) and Jemaine (playing a gig with the tape recorder, playing bass on his couch, etc) This is from 19:01 - 19:38.

In Season 2, Episode 4, after murray, bret and jemaine build the "fort" and murray is drawing the line on the friendship graph, the song starts to play and while it plays there are a bunch of clips of the three doing fun things (skipping stones, listening to music, watching tv, running through the bushes, etc) This is from 10:07 - 10:44.

thanks again :P

I'll have to check it out, MCat. I have something in my head that I think was in those montage scenes, but I'm not sure.

Yeah, it's some lovely instrumental music that has a little bit of a lilt to it. Don't know if anyone's transcribed it, though.

I think numerous people have asked about this over the years. There are threads on it here and I've had emails. No one really ever has had an actual answer about it. Its just incidental music written by the guys.

I'm not particularly good at working things out on guitar but I had a go at this. It's only about the first 12 seconds, but I hope it helps anyway:

e-------0----------------0--0----------5-7-8-5-----0---------
b--3--3---3-1-0--0-1-3-4------3-1-0-------------3-3---3-1-0-
g-----------------------------------2-------------------------
d-------------------------------------------------------------
a-------------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------------------------------------------

Also the chords are Dm, G, Em and possible Am but I'm not sure.

The chords are perfect! I'm working on the tabs, but should be good too. I'm a newbie at playing the guitar, so I'm not an expert. Thank you for your help :yay: :hug:

I believe this is the first little ditty you're talking about, MCat, in case anyone else wants to have a go at tabbing
