Tabbed by: Jason Paszek (Autopoietic Boy)
Email: J.W.Paszek.Guitar.Instruction@gmail.com

Tuning: EADGBE (Standard)


There are some quality tabs for this song here, but I found a lot of
critical mistakes so I spent some time with it making sure to get every
note in as it should be.  I've noticed a few errors in the chord progressions
and also the layered and more complex sounding parts are often kind of
skimmed over.  I tabbed it out so that everything can be done on one guitar.
I didn't look at the others until after I tabbed it out and while there are
similarities, I've taken the time to create a tab for the person who wants
to play the song as faithfully as possible to the sound on the album.

Questions, comments, criticisms...email me or leave a message.

This isn't really in the right time signature the whole time but the notes are right

Sorry, the chords are wrong in some places. You wrote G5 - it can't be, because you say it's G C and G. G5 is made of G and its fifth, so D.
And G7 is wrong as well in two places. (323001) - it's lacking of D and further you wrote (32003x) - it's just clear G major chord.

The other part is okay, I guess. It may be interesting transposition into acoustic guitar.
