Already Dead - Beck
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: F# 11th w3

Tuning: Standard, capo on 3rd fret


This song is played on 2 guitars. This tab is my interpretation on how to play 
it on one guitar. Throughout the song, let ring where possible. When I refer 
to a 'measure' I mean a part between the vertical lines: |------------|.


Intro:

e|-------5--4------|--------3--2------|--------2--0------|--------3p2-0------|
B|-----------------|------------------|------------------|-------------------|
G|-----4-----------|------2-----------|------0--------0--|------0------------|

D|-0-2--------2----|----2--------2----|------0----2--2---------|
A|--------------2--|--0------------2--|----2------4--2---------|
E|-----------------|------------------|--0--------------0------|


Verse 1:

Time wears away 
All the pleasures of the day
All the treasures... you could hold

e|-------0-------|-------2-----|-------0-------|-------0-------|-3-----------|

D|-0---0-------0--|-----0----4--2--------|
A|-x--------------|---2------4--2--------|
E|-2--------------|-0--------------0-----|


Verse 2:

Days turn to sand
Losing strength in every hand
They can't hold you... anymore

(Same as Verse 1.)


Chorus:

Part 1 (lyrics):

Already dead to me now
Already dead to me now
'Coz it feels like I'm watching something dying

e|--------------0--------|--------------0--------|--------------0------------|
B|-------0------0--------|-------0------0--------|---------0----0------------|

A|-x----x----|-0-----------|---2------4--2-------|
E|-2h3--3----|-2-----------|-0-------------------|


Part 2 (instrumental):

(Let the bended string bend down a bit before moving to next measure.)

e|-------0-----|-------------|-------------|--------------|------------------|
B|---3b5---b5--|-------3-----|-------0-----|-------0------|-------3----------|
G|-------------|---6b7---b7--|-------------|---0h2---2p0--|-------4-4--------|

D|-----0--------0--|-----0----2--2-------|
A|---0-------------|---2------4--2-------|
E|-2---------------|-0-------------------|


Verse 3:

Love looks away
In the harsh light of the day
On the edge of... nothing more

(Same as Verse 1.)


Verse 4:

Days fade to black
In the light of what they lack
Nothing's measured... by what it needs

(Almost the same as verse 1, only the 2nd measure is different and the last 
one.)

e|-7-----------|
B|-5---5-------|
G|-----4-------|
D|----------0--|
A|--------7----|
E|---0---------|

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


Chorus:

(Almost the same as previous chorus, in part 1 only the 3rd measure is 
different and the last one. Part 2 is exactly identical.)

e|-----------------0-----|
B|-----------------0--0--|
G|-------2------2--0--4--|
D|-----5----5p2----2--2--|
A|---4-------------2-----|
E|-0---------------0-----|

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


Outro:

(Sounds very much like the intro, but it's not the same actually.)

e|-------5--4-----|-0h2---3-2----|-------2--0----|-------3p2-0------|
B|----------------|-0------------|-------0----0--|------------------|
G|---4---------4--|-----2-----2--|-----0------0--|-----0------------|
