                 A Certain Romance (Acoustic) - Arctic Monkeys
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Freddie Macauley
E-mail: fmacauley2@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

The majority of this is just the original song an octave lower, this is so it can be 
played easily acoustically, without the high notes.

Intro:

Play this twice

e|----------------------------------------------------|
B|-4-4--4-4-4--7-7-4--4-4-4--9-9-4--9/11-11-11-11-9---|
G|-4-4------------------------------------------------|
D|-4--------------------------------------------------|
A|-2--------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------|
G|-4-4--4-4-4--6-4---6-4----4--4-4-4------------------|
D|-6---------------6-----6--6--------5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

Verse 1:

Played and quickly muted, listen to the song you'll get it, there's also the occasional 
up,down,up, normally before movement between chords
   B    E
e|-2----0---|
B|-4----0---|
G|-4----1---|
D|-4----2---|
A|-2--------|
E|----------|


B
Well oh they might wear classic Reeboks
B
Or knackered Converse
B
Or tracky bottoms tucked in socks
E
But all of that's what the point is not
                                E
The point's that there ain't no romance around there
B
And there's the truth that they can't see
B
They'd probably like to throw a punch at me
B      E
And if you could only see them, then you would agree
E
Agree that there ain't no romance around there


Chorus:

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-6-6-4-----6-4----6-4-------------------------------------------------|
A|-------6-4-----6------6-----------------6-6-4-4-----------------------|
E|-----------------7------7-7-7-7-4-4-4-4---------7-4-4-4-4/3-3-3-3-3-3-|

Verse 2:

The same as Verse 1

B
And over there there's broken bones
B
There's only music, so that there's new ringtones
E
  And it don't take no Sherlock Holmes
                     E
To see it's a little different around here
B
Don't get me wrong, oh there's boys in bands
B
And kids who like to scrap with pool cues in their hands
E
And just cause he's had a coupla cans
                          E
He thinks it's alright to act like a dickhead


Chorus:

The same as before, but played twice:

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-6-6-4-----6-4----6-4-------------------------------------------------|
A|-------6-4-----6------6-----------------6-6-4-4-----------------------|
E|-----------------7------7-7-7-7-4-4-4-4---------7-4-4-4-4/3-3-3-3-3-3-|


e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-6-6-4-----6-4----6-4-------------------------------------------------|
A|-------6-4-----6------6-----------------6-6-4-4-----------------------|
E|-----------------7------7-7-7-7-4-4-4-4---------7-4-4-4-4/3-3-3-3-3-3-|


Verse 3:

This includes the transition between chorus and verse

e|---2--------------------------------------|
B|---4-2-2-2-2-0-0--------------------------|
G|-4-4-------------1--1-1-1-1p0-0-0--0-0-0--|
D|-4----------------------------------------|
A|-2----------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------------------------|
B|-4-4--4-4-4--7-7-4--4-4-4--9-9-4--9/11-11-11-11-9---|
G|-4-4------------------------------------------------|
D|-4--------------------------------------------------|
A|-2--------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

e|----------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------|
G|-4-4--4-4-4--6-4---6-4----4--4-4-4------------------|
D|-6---------------6-----6--6--------5-5-5-5--5-5-5-5-|
A|----------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------|

The actual verse is the same as the other two -

B
Well over there there's friends of mine
B
What can I say, I've known 'em for a long long time
E
And yeah they might overstep the line
                       E               B
But I just cannot get angry in the same way
B
Not in the same way
                E
Not in the same way
             E
Oh no, oh no no


Solo/Outro:

This is the same as on the actual song, apart from the final chords, the actual song 
plays GBe strings of an A7 E chords, then an E7 B chord:

Entirely preference which ending is used, or if you're feeling imaginative could 
try playing both at the same time.
