Artist: Switchfoot
Song: Concrete Girl

Tabbed By: ChronZerg


Ok, this is my first tab ever done.
I have looked at alot of Concrete Girl tabs, and finally, I thought I
found the best way to play the song, so I am gonna tab it for you guys.

Update:
I change a few things in this tab of mine
e|-------|      e|------|
B|-0h1-1-|      B|------|
G|-------| -->  G|-4h5-4|
D|-------|      D|------|
A|-------|      A|------|
E|-------|      E|------|
This was my main concern

Also, the Bridge and Chorus have been changed as well...


Verse:
"Bleeding thoughts...cracking bolders..."
e|--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|o----------------------------------------------------1p0------|
G|------4h5-4-------4h5-4------4h5-4----------------0-------2p0-|
D|------------------------------------------3-3-----------------|
A|o--3-----------0--------------------------3-3-----------------|
E|---------------------------3--------------1-1-----------------|

e|--------------------------------------------------|
B|-----4h5-4--------4h5-4-------4h5-4--------------o|
G|--------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------3---5---|
A|---3-----------0--------------------------3---5--o|
E|---------------------------3--------------1---3---|

Pre-Chorus:
"...Unmovable shadows...the concrete girl..."
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---9-9---------------------------9-9-----------------------5-5-5-5-|
D|---9-9---9-9------7-7---1010-----9-9---9-9------7-7---9-9--5-5-5-5-|
A|---7-7---9-9------7-7---1010-----7-7---9-9------7-7---9-9--3-3-3-3-|
E|---------7-7------5-5---8-8------------7-7------5-5---7-7----------|

Chorus:
"...And we're swimming around..."
e|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------|
G|---6-6-6-6-----------------5-5-5-5/6-6-6-6----------------|
D|---6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6/7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5/6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-7\\\5--|
A|---4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6/3-7-7-7-3-3-3-3/4-4-4-4-6-6-6-6-7\\\5--|
E|-----------4-4-4-4/5-5-5-5-----------------4-4-4-4-5\\\3--|

[Verse] (but don't repeat)

[Pre-Chorus]  

[Chorus]

Brigde:
I dont know the first part of the bride expect for the little bend you hear in there...
Here is the bend
e|-------|
B|-------|
G|-4b5r4-|
D|-------|
A|-------|
E|-------|

And the first part of the bridge ends with this

e|------------------------x---|
B|----4h5-4-------4h5-4---x---|
G|------------------------x---|
D|------------------------x---|
A|-0----------------------x---|
E|-------------3----------x---|

Then the second begins with the "Ahhh Ahhh Ahhh" vocalizing.

"Ahh Ahha...Ahh Ahha...Concrete Girl!"
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------1p0----|
G|--------------------------------------------------------0----2p0-|
D|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9\7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5\-3--3-----------|
A|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9\7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5\-3--3-----------|
E|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5\3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3\-1--1-----------|

e|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------|
D|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9\7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7\5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5\-3--5-|

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

hey man this is a great tab. just a little something, i think its a little easier and sounds better to play the intro like this:

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------
B|---4h5r4----4h5r4----4h5r4--------0--5\4--2\0--4---4h5r4-----4h5r4-
D|-----------------------------3-3-----------------------------------
A|-3--------0------------------3-3-----------------3---------0-------
E|-------------------3---------1-1-----------------------------------
h = hold
r = release
\ = slide down

one thing...you messed up a little...and mixed up your B and G strings..but i get what you are saying

i like what you did with this

G|-0--5\4--2\0--4-|

but it all depends on what you are use to
plus...each string has a destinctive sound...so putting it all on one string may be easier to play..but it may sound slightly different..

Also, playing it on the G string would sound better..i never thought of it that way...
I always thought that the "B|-0h1-0|" didnt sound quite rite...
i am gonna write another tab cause i have found a couple of mess up with this one....

one big one is the chorus chords...
I play C# Ab C A
its really C# Ab A C
i am also tabbing the second bridge..
i have searched accross the internet and there is not one tab that contains that part...
its kind of hard to hear with Jonathan Foreman singing the notes the guitar plays..., but i kno the bend they do on that part is D|--4b5r--| or A|--9b10r--|
which ever you like more...
