                             Perth - Bon Iver
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Jonny
Email:Jonny_172@hotmail.co.uk

Tuning: EADGBe

A whole load of people were tabbing this in funny tunings and making it out
to be a song for acoustic guitar, so I thought i'd put one out in standard
tuning (for the whole song!) which sounds equally as good on an electric as
an acoustic.

Enjoy, email me or comment if you have any questions:

Intro:     (0:00-0:53)

(I like to play this bit with a fairly hefty reverb and and the  the
middle pickup, or middle setting for something like a telecaster)

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------4--------------------------6h8b()9r8\4----|
G|----------3h5---------------5h7---7--------7---7-8-----------------------|
D|----------6---------8-------0--------------0---0-0-----------------------|
A|----6------------------------------------------------6-6-----------------|
E|----4--4-------4/6-------6------------6/8------8-8---8-8---------------4-|

Do this x3 then instead of the 6h8b9r8\4 bit at the end just play the 7chord
                                                                      0

                                                                      8

1st verse: (0:54-1:26)

You can just play chords here (especially if you're playing on an acoustic)
and you can really play them however you like, full chord, part of the
chord, power chords etc.

I like to play them like:

             Eb             Bb
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-----------8-------------------------------|
G|---------------------------7---------------|
D|-----------8-------------------------------|
A|-----------6---------------8---------------|
E|---------------------------6---------------|

I'm tearing up, across your face

            Bbsus4                              Ab
e|------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------8----------------------------------5-------|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------8----------------------------------6-------|
E|-----------6----------------------------------4-------|

  move dust through the light           to find your name



             Eb             Bb
e|-------------------------------------------|
B|-----------8-------------------------------|
G|---------------------------7---------------|
D|-----------8-------------------------------|
A|-----------6---------------8---------------|
E|---------------------------6---------------|

     it's only faint      this is not a place

            Bbsus4                    Cm
e|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|-----------8-------------------------8-------|
D|---------------------------------------------|
A|-----------8------------------------10-------|
E|-----------6-------------------------8-------|

    not yet awake,         I'm raised to make



Chorus: (1:27-2:00)
Same as the introduction really

It's a bit simpler I think.

It starts on the wee 6h8b(9)\4 thing then goes to:
                                                         (this is missed out
                                                             first time)
                                                                |
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------4--------------------------6h8b(9)r8\4----|
G|----------3/5---------------5h7---7--------7---7-8-----------------------|
D|--------------------8----------------------0---0-0-----------------------|
A|----6--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----4--4-------4/6-------6------------6/8------8-8---8--8-------------4--|

                                                            still alive for
                                                            you, love



2nd Verse: (2:01-2:33)

This is different to the 1st verse and is just:

(for acoustic guitar the chords are |Ab-----Bb----Cm-------------------------|
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------6---------------------8----------------10----------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------4---------------------6-----------------8----------------------------|

              in a matter of a month              from forests, for the soft

                      gotta know been lead aloft

so rid of all your stories  what I know, what it is, is boring - wire it up!

  Now breaking new ground



There's some wee lead guitar bits underneath this verse, they are:

            Part 1                    Part 2
e|-----18-16-15-18-20-22b23---|--------18/20--18/20------------------------|
B|----------------------------|--------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------|--------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------|--------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------|--------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------|--------------------------------------------|


            Part 3                      Part 4
e|-----22b23--22b23---------|-----22b23-20-22-18-20-16-18-15-16-13-23------|
B|--------------------------|----------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------|----------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------|----------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------|----------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------|----------------------------------------------|





Loud/heavy pre-chorus thing: (2:33-3:25)

(if you're using an electric you can stick on some overdrive here)

The rhythmn is pretty self explanitary here, chords 1, 2 and 3 are played six times, the 
last two just once.

                              ____________x3___________
  _____________________x2______________________________
e|----------------------------|------------------------|
B|----------------------------|------------------------|
G|---13----8-----12-----7--5--|----------3/5-----------|
D|---x-----x-----x------x--x--|------------------------|
A|---15----10----13-----8--6--|-6-6-6-6-------6-6-6----|
E|---13----8-----11-----6--4--|-4-4-4-4-------4-4-4----|

     Fm    Cm    Eb     Bb Ab     Ab5          Ab5


On the third time of doing this section there's a trumpety bit, that is:
(3:05-3:25)
e|------------------------|---------------------------|
B|------------------------|---------------------------|
G|---15-13---12-10---8-7--|---12-17---15-12--10--7----|
D|------------------------|---------------------------|
A|------------------------|---------------------------|
E|------------------------|---------------------------|



Then back to the introduction/chorus, (the simpler version fits better here)
(3:25-3:41)
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------4--------------------------6h8b(9)r8\4----|
G|----------3/5---------------5h7---7--------7---7-8-----------------------|
D|--------------------8----------------------0---0-0-----------------------|
A|----6--------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----4--4-------4/6-------6------------6/8------8-8---8--8-------------4--|

There's lots of electric guitar riffs undernaeth the main bits that're pretty random 
really, so use the notes
below to make something up, shifting the octaves higher or lower can
make it sound a bit more effective too.

e|-----8--6---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------9--8--6--4---------------------------------------------------|

They're mostly like

e|-----8p6------8p6----------------|
B|---------8--------8p6\4----------|
 You get the idea...




The almost very end:(3:47-3:54)

Kind of like the heavyier/louder bit

e|--------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------|
G|---13-13-13---8--8--8--------12-12-12---7--5------------|
D|---x--x--x----x--x--x--------x--x--x----x--x------------|
A|---15-15-15---10-10-10-------13-13-13---8--6------------|
E|---13-13-13---8--8--8--------11-11-11---6--4------------|



The actual very end (and start of next song): (lots of delay)
(4:07-end)
e|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|-----8----3----5----0-------|
D|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|

Hope it's half decent... I felt the need to do a full song version because all the rest 
seemed a bit half hearted.

Enjoy!
