Stars and Shites
Biffy Clyro
Tabbed by Martin Gill

Should be pretty much perfect.

Sounds really nice fingerpicked...
STANDARD TUNING (eadgbe)

Intro:
(Thanks 57 varieties)

"I'd like to be, a soldier of war..."

--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12-|
---------------------------------|
14--14--11--11--10--10--12--12---| Just repeat until the main part starts
---------------------------------|
---------------------------------|
---------------------------------|

1st Verse:

The picking patterns are quite hard to tab but I'll try my best,
the notes are all here you may have to mess around with them a bit tough.

"I'd like to be a soldier of war..."

Do this bit twice then the verse again...

Chorus:

I'll call this the chorus... The last part of the chorus can just be
played as 8 on the bottom string but I've tabbed a little variation that can be heard.


"Now the stars don't shine and the birds don't sing anymore... It's not the same..."

The "...small victories..." part.
Sounds a bit more like this tone of the note played on the records, it's an A anyway, but i just find it easier to play than the stretch.

5 starts dude.
