Title: The New Year
Artist: Death Cab for Cutie
Album: Transatlanticism

Tabbed by: Bryan Serwatka (barney__18@hotmail.com)

Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)

This is a great song that I didn't appreciate until I saw them play it live.  There
is no tab on the net for this song, trust me, I have been looking.  So I made one
myself.  The chorus is a little half-assed, but it works for me.  Plus, on the album it
is very hard to hear the guitar parts over his singing during the chorus.  This is my
first full tab that I will have ever posted, but trust my tabbing skills.  I have been
playing covers for a while in my band, but I feel that this one needs to be put online.
YOU ARE WELCOME.

     This is how it sounds, but he really just freestyles it everytime.

This is a great song. One of my favorite Death Cab songs. I have found one decent tab for it elsewhere, but this one is better and more complete. Finish it soon!
