Foo Fighters - Exhausted

Tabbed by
Anthony McCaffrey

This is a brilliant song and it sounds great on acoustic or electric guitars. If you are 
an electric guitar be sure to crank up the distortion.

Notes:
- Dropped D Tuning
- Make sure you mute the low 'D' when it's not used.
- The strumming pattern is only personal preference,
  if it sounds better played differently then feel free
  to leave a comment, I'm open to suggestions. The
  section I was unsure about with regards to strumming
  was bridge 2, try it and see what you think.
- I tend to play the lower strings (A+D) a little
  harder on the down strums and the light strings
  (G+B+E) a little harder on the up strums. I sometimes
  miss a few strings on some strums just to give a
  similar sound to the way Grohl plays it on the album.
- There’s around a 50 second gap towards the end of the
  song.. You'll probably want to shorten it a bit if
  you're on the acoustic and if you're using an electric
  guitar make sure you get some feedback during this pause.
  I don't think you need to be exact with the timing, this
  section is just really good for a build up.
- At the start of each section of the chorus you can
  sometimes hear him slide down the fret board rather than
  just strumming the open D power chord.
- Lyrics aren't 100% :S

Vocals

Verse 1.
I'm not around that much running
exhausted...and lost
If it could be undone will it
have costed...it's taught
and lost...

Verse 2.
Blowing away we stray, wilted
insulted...at fault
What if the day had stayed in bed
these baubles...we've brought
at fault...

Verse 3.
After the bliss has long ended
this caution...this fault
Give me a breeze that's long winded
accosted...adult
arrested...


Thank for looking and thanks to Dave for such a good song.
C+C much appreciated.

forget about the D5 at the start of the chorus, that shouldn't be there. You can fit that in at the end of some sections of the chorus if you think it sounds right, but not at the beginning.

cheers
