Kashmir - melpomene.
tabbed by Simon Toft Hansen.

Csus2  Bm7  Dsus4 D7
--3-----2-----3----2-----------------------------------------------|
--3-----3-----3----1-----------------------------------------------|
--5-----2-----2----2-----------------------------------------------|
--5-----4-----0----0-----------------------------------------------|
--3-----2----------------------------------------------------------|
-------------------------------------------------------------------|

there isn't any guitar on the first verse, but I tabbed them anyway.

Csus2                                      Bm7
something tells me that I'm left without a chance
                                     Csus2
in my supicious attempts to get her close
                                   Bm7
enough to close my lips around her smile

now I can't close my eyes when she's around
       Csus2
she is around
 Em                                      (Dsus4)  D
passing like the wind that shapes the clouds
       Bm7            Csus2
she is around, she is around

play the part above twice.

Csus2                                       Bm7
I don't know how but suddenly it has been a while
                                            Csus2
and we've been walking in through that same front door
                                      Bm7
undressing like there were no parts to hide

and calling each other names we never had
           Csus2
you never heard
             Em
and then an unexpected turn
                 Dsus4  D
and we hit the kerb
         Bm7           Csus2
a stupid term, a fatal word

------
The tricky part about the chorus is that the first time they play it, they play a C
instead of Am, which they play the second time. Here's the way i play it. You don't
have to play the melody, but that's what Kasper does live.

---2-0-3---2-0-3--2-0----2-0----3-2-2-3--2-0-3--3-2-0-----------(2)----|
---3-------3------3------0------3--------3------3-----3--0-1-0--(3)----|
---0-------0------0------0------2--------0------0--------0-------2-----|
---*-------*------*------*------0--------*------*--------0-------0-----|
---3-------3------3------2---------------3------3--------*-------------|
-------------------------0-------------------------------3-------------|

C
flutter girl
                    Em
killing me with her sunshine
Dsus4   D
sun  -  shine
         C
she's so unaware
      C            G D   D7
that she's my melpomene

-----
the next part I borrowed from the other version on this site. I wouldn't play the
chords in this part, but the bass can use the notes.

C             C/h
you broke the code
              Am              Em
just like I'm sure you always do
          D               C
without intentions but I know
              Em             D
that's how I broke away from you
             Bm             C
now that the clouds are obsolete
            G             Am
I hope you landed on your feet
              Em
without those evil demons

-----
I can't figure out the guitar in this next section, but anyway it looks like Kasper
does something completely different live. And here's how that sounds:

  keeping...   running out of time...
----*----------*--------------*--------------|
----*----------*--------------*--------------|
----9----------11-------------9--------------|
----*----------*--------------*--------------|
----7----------9--------------7--------------|
---(0)---------*--------------*--------------|

 drown... wine... naive... give... receive... jaded...  out of function...
--*--------*--------*-------*--------*----------*---------*---------|
--*--------*--------*-------*--------*----------*---------*---------|
--12-------11-------9-------7--------5----------4---------8---------|
--*--------*--------*-------*--------*----------*---------*---------|
--10-------9--------7-------5--------3----------2---------6---------|
--*--------*--------*-------*--------*----------*---------*---------|

keeping you reminded of
the wars they pulled us through
as fragile hearts ran short of glue
as we're both running out of time
and seek to drown the fact in wine
it should be honest and naïve
like we should give, we should receive
I must be jaded fading
out of function into solitude

-------
this next part is played with power chords.
Warning: do not confuse these chords for major or minor or whatever.

chords for solo:
  A   E  F#?  D   C   H

--5---0---2---*---*---*----------------------------------|

Am
flutter girl
                    Em
killing me with her sunshine
F#?  D
sunshine
         C
she's so unaware
     Am           G  D
that she's my melpomene

Am

                    Em

         C

outro:

...or something like that.

håber i kan bruge den!

evt. kunne man i stedet for at spille Csus2 og Bm7 i starten, spille sådan her:

Am Gmaj7
something tells me that I'm left without a chance
Am
in my supicious attempts to get her close
Gmaj7
enough to close my lips around her smile

og så derefter gå over til den oprindelige tab.

Top notch. :) Udemærket tab, mere detaljeret end min egen. Nu lavede jeg jo også kun chords, tab gider jeg ikke. :P

5 * herfra.
Keep up the good work
