QUANTUM LEAP - Tenacious D
Tuning: Standard
Tabbed by: Zuka


Hello. If you're wondering "what Tenacious D song is this?", you can find
the song on the deluxe edition of the new album Rize of the Fenix.
Alternatively, you can just search Youtube for a few early live
performances and/or the studio version. It has some great harmonies worth
listening to.


INTRO/VERSE:

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

G|--------0---------------------0---0-----0---|
D|----0---0---0---0---11--11-11-11--11-11-11--| (cont'd below)

   D  U D U   U D U   D   U  D  U   U  D  U

D = Down stroke
U = Up stroke

This is a method (hopefully not too dodgey) showing you the use of the open D
and G strings throughout the song, the note position, and the strumming
pattern. If you're listening to the song while reading this, it should be
crystal clear. If none of that matters to you, continue on for simple chords.


VERSE 1:

Bm          F#
Since the beginning of time
Bm          F#
There had to be a man with a plan
Bm       F#   Bm    F#
To push man, forward
Bm                 F#    Bm             F#
There was a caveman who, invented wheels
Bm                    F#            Bm     F#
And with those wheels he pushed man forward

G                             F#
Someone had to come up with a new concept for life
G                             F#
Had to push the mighty rock upon the mountain top


VERSE 2:

Bm             F#
Got to work it out
Bm             F#
Got to think outside the box
           Bm                F#
You got to think outside the bun
Bm             F#
If you want to be the magic one
G        F#7
Who will lead the trail, blaze the rail
G                                  F#7
Be the one that you will know must be

Genius

   B  F#  C#m  F#

B         F#                   C#m              F#
Everybody looks to the hero to lead the way, to change our way of life
B          F#                C#m         F#
To show us something that is meaningful, yeah
B                    F#            C#m               F#
When you look to the hero you must seize the day and shine a ray of light
B                 F#               C#m         F#
Gotta shine it on something that is beautiful, yeah
G                   F#7
With the bravery to see, a new form of arts
G                F#7
A blazing of our consciousness, we're talking quantum leap

VERSE 3:
When you think outside the bun,
It's scary out there
There's also lots of stinky poo
But sometimes when you go outside of your comfort zone
You might find something brand new
To help the humans leap
Forward, do a simple leap
Never be they same, they leap
Across the fucking annals of time
Quantum...

CHORUS:
..leap, leap

Einstein, Shakespeare, Leonard Nimoy, Doctor Drew
Bell Biv DeVoe, Fran├žois Truffaut, Moses, Tenacious D

That's a list of the people who have made the quantum leap
It gets pretty scary out there because they got to know themselves, yeah
When you look at the people who have made the quantum leap
You feel like a turd cause you haven't accomplished anything yourselves, no
With the bravery to see, a new form of arts
A blazing of our consciousness, we're talking quantum leap

VERSE 4/OUTRO:
Leap...
Leap...
Leap...
Sleep

e|----------------|
B|----------------|
G|-------0--------|
D|-----0---0------|
A|---9-------9----|
E|-7------------7-|


*Note* KG Plays the F#7 and the end of each verse/chorus like so:

e|--0--|
B|--0--|
G|--3--|
D|--4--|
A|--4--|
E|--2--|

That is all. Enjoy and support the D. : )
