                     American Dream - Silverstein
-----------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Tylernol

Tuning: DADGBe

I think the other tabs of this are right, but this is for the people like
me who dont wanna tune every string down to make there guitar drop D flat,
so here’s an alternative way to play it in just drop D. Plus I changed very
slight things that I thought may have been a little off. Most of this i did
by ear, but i wanna give some credit to the other tabs, there was a couple
times i looked at theirs to see if i was getting something similar

Intro:
e|---------------------------------|    e|--------------------|
B|-------2-------2-------2-4-2-----|    B|-------2-------2----|

Chorus:
e|-------------------------|    Tabbing out the higher part by ear is a
B|-------------------------|    mission for me, so just use ver 2 by 
G|-------------------------| x2 shinsen88 and move everything down a
D|-4~-1~-4~-6~-4~-4~-4~-6~-|    semi-tone, or half-step, whatever
A|-4~-1~-4~-6~-4~-4~-4~-6~-|    terminology your used to, I think that
D|-4~-1~-4~-4~-2~-4~-2~-4~-|    tab has it right

REPEAT VERSE RIFF 2
but this time end with:
e|-------------|     e|-9-9-9-9-9-9-|
B|-------------|     B|-------------|
G|-------------| x3  G|-------------|
D|-4-4-6-6-8-8-|     D|-------------|
A|-------------|     A|-------------|
D|-------------|     D|-------------|

REPEAT CHORUS

REPEAT VERSE RIFF 1

B|------7-9-7----| One guitar plays this a bunch of times 
G|-8-10-------10-| continuously throughout the bridge
D|---------------|
A|---------------|

e|--------------|    e|---|

D|-----4~-------|    D|---|
                     Pm .
    
REPEAT CHORUS
But instead of playing it
twice, play it four times

Outro:
e|-------|    e|------------| e|-------|    e|------------|
B|-------|    B|------------| B|-------|    B|------------|  Repeat all
G|-----6-| x4 G|-----6666-8-| G|-----6-| x4 G|-----8888-6-|  of this

A|-1-1-4-|    A|-1-1-4444-6-| A|-1-1-4-|    A|-1-1-6666-4-|
D|-1-1---|    D|-1-1--------| D|-1-1---|    D|-1-1--------|
Pm . . .      Pm . .          Pm . . .      Pm . .

e|-------------------|  Note: instead of playing the power chord on the 
B|-------------------|  1st fret you can play a power chord on the 6th 
G|-8888-6--8888-6--8-|  fret on the A string: G|-8-| 
D|-8888-6--8888-6--8-|                        D|-8-| If you find this 
A|-6666-4--6666-4--6-|                        A|-6-| is easier
D|-------------------|
