Justin Vernon & St. Vincent - Roslyn


Justin Vernon (not Bieber *sigh*) uses a miscellaneous tuning in this song.
I figured it out by ear+watching a live video and im pretty sure its correct.
If you have any corrections send me a message.

This interpretation is based on the Live version of
Justin Vernon & St. Vincent - Roslyn @ MusicNOW 2010 (youtube.com)

Have fun & check the song for rhythm patterns
Tuning :  E B D F# D F#

Sea and the rock below
Cocked to the undertow
Bones blood and teeth erode, with every crashing node

Wings wouldn't help you
Wings wouldn't help you...down

Down fills the ground, gravity's proud

Verse 3 :

You barely are blinking
Wagging your face around
When'd this just become a mortal home?
------------------
last Chorus :

Won't, won't, won't, won't

Won't let you talk me
Won't let you talk me down.

Will pull it taut, nothing let out
--------------------------------

Hope this tab helps more than it confuses :D

Awesome tab transcription, but I've got one correction. Your first chord,x79800 (F# minor, I think) Should be changed to x89800 (Gmaj7 I believe). It sound more like the song and I think you'd agree. I haven't really looked through the rest of the tab but I'm sure it's great from what I can see. No one likes knit-pickers anyway. 5 stars from me.

Excellent, accurate tab. For the studio version I believe it's the same tuning, but a half step lower. So the tab would be the same, but the tuning would be F,C#,F,C#,Bb,F# high to low.

Very nice tab.
Only thing is on the recording the tuning is actually a full step lower than what you used so from lowest to highest the tuning would be DACEce
