                             The Devil's Real - Chris Smithers
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:talesofthelost

Tuning: capo 2 (normal tuning)

There is a distinct lack of chris smithers tabs on the net.  here is my version of The 
Real.  I cant do the finger picking he does, so i strum the chords, which are Am, Dm, E 
think).  Also for the riffs and solo i make that up, so i don't tab it here.  the
intro is as close as i could get to the record.

hint:  if you do fingerpick this song, then always chris is hitting the A string bass note.

notes and chords relative to capo.  basically the key of the song is Bm, but with the 
on on the second fret it is Am as it makes it easy to repeatedly hit that A string.

anyway, hope this helps, and feel free to play around with the song, cos this was the 
i could do.

V1
Am
The devil ain't a legend, the devil's real
Am
in the empty way he touched me where i hardly feel
Dm
in the empty hole inside me, where nothing ever ride me
Am
down into my grave that does not heal

bridge
E
and nothing is a something, it'll suck you dry.
Am
as a whisper you can hardly hear that tells you why

riff?

V2
Am
They told me you ain't got no problems, you self-deceived
Am
these seeming contradictions, they're make believe
Dm
it was then that I decided, my life was being guided
Am
by a second rate dependence on a first class phase

bridge
E
They told me I was breaking through, but I was breaking down
Am                                          E
by the time I heard the difference they had long left town

riff?

V3
Am
You know they're so malicious, they're mean
Am
they so vaguely well-intentioned with no love I've seen
Dm
and it's the emptiness that'll kill you, cold comfort that'll fill you
Am
with a sense of dread making things worse than they seem

bridge
E
They don't tell you nothing, you don't already know
Am                                              E
they just keep holding out the promise but they don't let go

riff?

V4
Am
well it was hard luck and trouble, bad times too
Am
I know i had 'em coming, but I got through
Dm
it was advise that you gave me in a dream, that saved me
Am
you said "get a new life contract that spells out your dues"

bridge
E
too good will define it, a clear conscience to sign it
Am                                          E
now I dream 'bout the good times and it all comes true

solo?

repeat verse 1 and 4 to end

| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| p  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note
