                            COUGH SYRUP - Young The Giant
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Ben
Email: bentappe@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard EADGBe

In the song there are 2 guitars, but I tabbed it for only one. and without using a capo
on the Second fret. It seems to work pretty well playing it his way with one guitar

I know this isn't a 100% correct tab. So I would appreciate any corrections to make it Perfect.


i did not tab the intro all credit goes to:

Verse 2:

from 1:23 - 1:52 i like to repeat the intro finger-picking riff,
But in the Album version he plays chords, which don't technically start until the "these 
zombies in the park" part.

chords used:

Life's too short to even care at all oh
G                                          A
I'm coming up now coming up now out of the blue oh
D
These zombies in the park they're looking for my heart
A
Woah oh oh oh
G                                          A
A dark world aches for a splash of the sun oh oh

One minor correction. The second line in the intro had one wrong note. The note on the A string is on the fourth fret, instead of the fifth. The correction is shown here.

Aside from that, the intro looked right, although it is easier to play with a capo, but that's your choice.

All in all, good tab.
