M. Ward
One Hundred Million Years
from the album "Hold Time"

6/27/2010

tab by: Jake Dexter

this is my first tab, but there's not
a real good sounding tab of this on here
so i thought i would do one.
its not at all how M.Ward plays it but it sounds good so have fun
 with it, its really easy.
this doesnt include the strumming pattern or anything but you should be
able to figure it out.
you can really improve your finger picking if you play around with it.

Drop D Tuning, so the G fingering is a little different.

Chords (low to high, left to right)

Dsus2 - xxx23x
A - x0222x
G - 5xx033

^h - hammer on
s - slide
b - bend and return
p = pull off

(riff 1)

E|-----------------------------------5-5s7-5-----------------------------|
B|------0^h3----3--s7-5-3-b5-3----s7--------7p5-3---------7---5----0h3---|
G|-2-2--------2-----------------------------------------7-----5----0h2---|
D|----------------------------------------------------7-------5----------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-0-0-------0-------0------0--0------0-------------0--------------0-----|

pick around with Dsus2 using the top d as your bass note

Dsus2
this river that we ride
has always been alive

(you can throw in this little riff during this break in the verse,
ward does it live)

(riff 2)
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------3-----------------------------------------------|
G|----------------2-----------------------------------------------|
D|-------0h2--0---------------------------------------------------|
A|--0h2-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

Dsus2
Oh, my soul
            A       Dsus2
One hundred million years

Dsus2
this river that we ride
will roll on when we die

(riff 2)

Dsus2
Oh, my soul
            A       Dsus2
One hundred million years

          G
And this love
              Dsus2
this love between you and I
    G                               A
is older than that burning ball of fire in the sky
         G
and the gale that fills our sails

(riff 1)

Dsus2
and the lights that shine tonight
have always been alive
(riff 2)
                        A
Oh, my soul one hundred million years
Dsus2
yeah the lights that shine tonight
will burn on when we die
(riff 2)
                        A
Oh, my soul one hundred million years

         G
And this love
          Dsus2
this love between you and I
    G                              A
Is older than that burning ball of fire up in the sky
        G
and the gale that fills our sails

(riff 1)

you can play this during the chorus and/or during the instrumental bridge. its a more 
depiction of the melody of the chorus that m ward plays live often


E|---3----3---5s7-5------5s7------------3---3----5s7------5s7------------|
B|---3--3----------7--------7---5b-3----3-3----------7--------7----5b-3--|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---5------5----------0------0------0--5----5----------0--------0------0|


E|---3----3---5s7-5------5s7-----------------------------------------------|
B|---3--3----------7--------7---5b-3----------2--2----3s5-2-2h3---3--------|
G|--------------------------------------------2---2---------------2--------|
D|--------------------------------------------2----2-----------------------|
A|----------------------------------------0--------------------------------|
D|---5------5----------0------0------0----------------------------0--------|


Again, its not how M ward plays it, especially in the chorus
(he uses some descending jazz chords that i cant quite figure out),
but it sounds good and is so beautiful and fun to play around with.
i think its one of the most beautiful songs ive ever heard.

for some reason this site won't let me post another tab of this, so this is Jake dexter, the author of this tab, adding a few corrections for those that have watched my youtube video of this song. everything in this tab is how i play it with a couple of additions i will list here.

in the chorus, there are 2 additional chords i play that are not in this original tab. i will diagram the fingering below. when you sing "older" in the chorus, play a Bm. Then, on "burning", play what im calling a F#/A. The way to finger them are as follows (low to high):

Bm x24432
F#/A 4x222x

Remember, this tab is in drop D, so the the F# bass note is on the 4th fret instead of the 2nd. So altogether the chorus looks like this:

G Dsus2
And this love, this love between you and I
Bm F#/A A
Is older than that burning ball of fire in the sky
G
And the gale that fills our sails (Riff 1)

After "sails", you go back to the opening riff just like the tab says. Feel free to email me if you have any questions at dexter4140@gmail.com. Thanks!
