correct =)

And here we go.

THE LITTLE THINGS ~ DANNY ELFMAN ~ WANTED SOUNDTRACK

For the first 4 measures, it is just bass:

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

Then, guitar joins bass with the same riff:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----1--2-1---1---2-1-----1--2-1-4-1-2---1---2-1---------------|
E|---4--------4-----------4---------------4----------------------|
--
Then, the vocals start at 0:16. Verse:

e|------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6--------8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6--|
A|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6--------8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6--|
E|----6--6--6------2-/--(4) 4--------6--6--6------2-/--(4) 4--|

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6-------------------------------------------|
A|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6----------------1----2-1-4-1-2----1---2-1--|
E|----6--6--6------2-/--(4) 4--------------4-----------------4----------|


Okay, now we are at 0:46:

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----8-8-8-8----(listen to the song for--------6-6-6-6----(repeat---|
D|-----8-8-8-8-----the beat: just repeat the-----6-6-6-6-----to the---|
A|-----6-6-6-6------power chords until…)---------4-4-4-4------beat…)--|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------|
G|------8-8--8--8--8--8---------------------------------|
D|------8-8--8--8--8--8------(repeat to the-------------|
A|------6-6--6--6--6--6--------beat until---------------|
E|-----------------------------the vocals stop)---------|

We are at 1:10 and back to where we started with:

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

Then at 1:25, the verse returns:

e|-------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6--------8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6---|
A|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6--------8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6---|
E|----6--6--6------2-/--(4) 4--------6--6--6------2-/--(4) 4---|

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6-------------------------------------------|
A|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6----------------1----2-1-4-1-2----1---2-1--|
E|----6--6--6------2-/--(4) 4--------------4----------------4-----------|

And then at 1:55, this part comes back:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6--------8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6-----|
A|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6--------8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6-----|
E|----6--6--6------2-/--(4) 4--------6--6--6------2-/--(4) 4-----|

e|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6----------------------------------------|
A|----8--8--8------4-/--(6) 6-------------1----2-1-4-1-2----1---2-1--|
E|----6--6--6------2-/--(4) 4-----------4----------------4-----------|

Then at 2:25, the guitar solo begins. I haven’t figured it out yet, but here are the 
that match. Repeat the four chords (well, three, but one is used again) as many times as 
want.

e|-------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------8--------------3---------------6----------------8------|
D|------8--------------3---------------6----------------8------|
A|------6--------------1---------------4----------------6------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------|

At 2:50, the solo ends and we are back to:

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

It is 2:56, and the guitar stops, though the bass continues with the root note of the 
power chords (the notes on the bottom E line).

At 3:06, the guitar chimes in again to play this riff once:

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

Good luck, and I hope you enjoyed. Drop a rating and a comment if you have a few extra seconds.

Really cool song and a great tab.

Get that solo in there, though. 5 stars.

This just doesn't sound accurate to me. The tuning sounds different in the song.
