           TAB for Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm (Crash Test Dummies)
           Tabbed by Bernardo Siu (bsiu@malloco.ing.puc.cl)
           Added To UG By Mikhailo


        This is the way I play this song on my accoustic. The following
tab is based on the chords given by Liz Myers.

        For each chord written below, play the following sequence:

C               Am              G               F
---------0----- ---------0----- ---------3----- ---------1-----
---1-----1--1-- ---1-----1--1-- ---3-----3--3-- ---1-----1--1--
---0--------0-- ---2--------2-- ---4--------4-- ---2--------2--
------2-------- ------2-------- ------5-------- ------3--------
---3----------- ---0----------- --------------- ---------------
--------------- --------------- ---3----------- ---1-----------

G#              Em              Bm
---------4----- ---------0----- ---------2-----
---4-----4--4-- ---0-----0--0-- ---3-----3--3--
---5--------5-- ---0--------0-- ---4--------4--
------6-------- ------2-------- ------4--------
--------------- --------------- ---------------
---4----------- ---0----------- ---2-----------

Dm              Cmaj7(Add F)
---------1----- ---------0-----
---3-----3--3-- ---0-----0--0--
---2--------2-- ---0--------0--
------0-------- ------3--------
---0----------- ---3-----------
--------------- ---------------

So if the chords are, say, Am G G C you should play:

Am            G              G               C

            ^  Notice these differences  ^

The differences written above are for transitions between chords.


Em Bm Em Bm F G F G

Am   G                 C   C
Once    there was this kid who
F           C            G#               C
Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
    F    F          G    C
But when he finally came back
G   C    F               C      G     G       G
His hair had turned from black into bright white
   G#               C        
He said that it was from when
    G#               Cmaj7(Add F) Cmaj7(Add F) F F
The cars had smashed soooo                     hard


Em     Bm   Em     Bm      F    G    F    G
Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm, Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm Mmmm

Am   G                C    C
Once   there was this girl who
F              C               G#           C
Wouldn't go to change with the girls in the change room
    F    C              G    C  
But when   they finally made her
G    C    F         C        G    G    G
They saw    birthmarks all over her body
    G#               C
She couldn't quite explain it
    G#             Cmaj7(Add F) Cmaj7(Add F) F F
They'd always just been                      there



Dm        Dm  C    G      G
Both girl and boy were glad
Dm        Dm   C      G   F          G
One kid had it worse than that
       Am   G             C   C
'Cause then   there was a boy whose
F                C                 G#           C
Parents made him come right home directly after school
    F    C            G     C
And when they went to their church
G    C     F        C        G            G       G
They shook   and lurched all over the church floor
   G#               C
He couldn't quite explain it
       G#          Cmaj7(Add F) Cmaj7(Add F) F     F
They'd always just gone                      there


Outro is the same progression as the bridge. As my guitar doesn't have a
built-in fade-out :-), I end this song like this:

                          (slower)  -1-
Dm Dm C G Em Bm Em Bm     F       G -0-        Let ring the last chord.

Hört sich eigentlich irgendwer, der des Gitarre spielens mächtig ist und auch nur im geringsten musikalisches Gehör besitzt, ein gleichzeitiges Spielen des Originals und der hier angeführten Tabulaturen an? Klingt für mich etwas sehr dissonant...Aber ich möchte mich hier nicht erdreisten zu behaupten, dass ich es besser kann...

1. darauf geachtet das capo auf den 3. fret gesetzt wird?
2. wie du selber sagst, besser nicht erdreisten etwas zu behaupten wenn man selbst kaum Gitarre spielen kann, denn
3. ist der Song dermaßen einfach, dass du mit welchem Key auch immer du es gerne hättest die paar Akkorde raushören kannst.

just my 2 cents...
