                             Don't Stop Acoustic - 5 Seconds Of Summer
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: LIanox95

Tuning:DADGBE

Hey ! 5 Seconds Of Summer just released their new EP ! There's an acoustic version of 
their song Don't Stop which is really
cool and fairly simple ! There are probably more guitar parts,but this is roughly it I 
think !

For the intro and the verses : (palm muted)
      D      F#      G       C#    D
e|----0------0-------0-------------------------------------------------------|
B|----0------0-------0-------------------------------------------------------|
G|----6-(x5)-6-(x3)--6-(x4)--6-----7-----------------------------------------|
D|----0------4-------5-------------------------------------------------------|
A|----0------4-------5-------4-----5-----------------------------------------|
D|----0------4-------5-------------------------------------------------------|

Play C# and D as in :
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----666--6/7---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----444--4/5---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

To play this, I put my pinkie on the 6th fret,G string,use my pointer finger to barre 
the 4th fret,and my ring
finger to barre the 5th fret. For the octave chords,I put my pinkie on the G string and 
my pointer finger on the
A string. Also I tend to hit that D octave chord after sliding,I think it sounds better !

D        F#      G        C#      D
You're like perfection, some kind of holiday
D      F#       G      C#        D
You got me thinking that we could run away
D         F#         G
You want I'll take you there,
 C#      D
You tell me when and where,
D   F#  G  C# D
Oh oh oh oh


Then for the prechorus,it's just one chord :
    Asus2
e|----0-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----0-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----9-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----7-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----7-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----7-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

   Asus2                              Asus2
 That everybody wants to take you home tonight
Asus2                        Asus2
But I'm gonna find a way to make you mine

Here I do DDUxUD trying to mute the strings with my left hand to give that kind of jumpy 
sound that's in the
recording,and when it comes to "make you mine" I do DUDUDU, strumming the chords this 
time,fully I mean.

The chorus :
   E7sus4 G   Asus2
e|--0-----0-----0---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--0-----0-----0---------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--7-----7-----9---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0-----5-----7---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--0-----5-----7---------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--0-----5-----7---------------------------------------------------------------------|

E7sus4                G
Don't stop doin' what you're doin'
              Asus2
Every time you move to the beat
        G
It gets harder for me
        E7sus4
And you know it, know it, know it

Fun little bassline :
    G6 Emaj7 Asus2
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--5----6-----7-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--5----6-----7-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--5----6-----7-----------------------------------------------------------------|
   Hit G6 twice to mak eit sound like what they're playing.

E7sus4                    G
Don't stop 'cause you know that I like it
              Asus2
Every time you walk in the room
        G
You got all eyes on you
        E7sus4
And you know it, know it, know it

   G6  Emaj7 Asus2
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--5----6-----7-------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--5----6-----7-------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--5----6-----7-------------------------------------------------------------|

Then you repeat the verse and the chorus...

The bridge :

   Bsus4   G    Asus2
e|---0-----0-----0--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---0-----0-----0--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---6-----7-----9--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---4-----5-----7--------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---4-----5-----7--------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---4-----5-----7--------------------------------------------------------------------|

Bsus4                                           G
Every day it's the same all the games that you play
Bsus4                                                Asus2
Back and forth, round and round, kinda like it this way

When Luke sings the chorus alone after that, you can palm mute the chords.
There's also this little part : (which is also the whistle part which plays throughout 
the whole song))

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----7------7------7---8---7-----------------------------------------------|
G|---7---7--7---7--7---7---7---7---------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then it goes back to the chorus.

Again I figured it by ear listening to the track on the EP, I doubt that both Luke and 
Michael play it that way,
but once there will a video of them playing it acoustically,I'll try to make it more 
accurate ! Enjoy !
