Artist:Bright Eyes
Song:The Biggest Lie
Album:Motion Sickness(Live)
Transcribed by: Extratallguy103

This is a great song that i heard off the "Motion Sickness" album that i bought when I
saw Bright Eyes in concert a few weeks ago. The chords are all absolutely right, I know
that for sure. The solo is 99%, it seems theres something off at the very very end, and
im pretty sure the chords I put over the solo are right, they still fit no matter what.
Questions or comments(hopefully on the solo), leave comments here or email me at bigossim@yahoo.com

THIS SONG WAS ORGINALLY DONE BY ELLIOT SMITH - ITS A COVER BY BRIGHT EYES

hey yeah, i meant to write this stuff but i forgot, i dunno why that wierd "[ch]" is around my chords. Anyways two things:

1. In the intro its a C chords, on the 2nd fret on D is hammered on and pulled off from open to 2nd fret and back.

2.In the verses, whenever theres an F, Conor plays an open low E string before it as a kinda transistion.

Enjoy
