Artist: Death Cab for Cutie
Album: We Have the Facts and We're Voting Yes
Song: No Joy In Mudville

Okay, so this is my first tab, for a song that's kind of tough to figure out, but here's
a rough draft. I basically went off of what the guy who posted the chords had, the
whole D-A-Bm-G run through, but added onto it, just to give the song its gloomy feel. 
So, this is for all of you who appreciate the old work that Death Cab did. These are the four
main set-ups for the entire song. And, Ashleigh, this one's for you :)

e|------------|
B|------------|
G|-6--x--9----|
D|-7--9--7--4-|
A|-5--7--9--5-|
E|-x--5--7--3-|

e|------------|
B|------------|
G|-2--4--6--7-|
D|-2--4--6--7-|
A|-0--2--4--5-|
E|------------|

(If I could've had my way, this year would bridge '66 again.)
e|-------------------------------------|
B|-10-10\7-------10-10\7---------------|
G|-9--9-\4-6-6h7-9--9-\4-6-7p6---------|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|

e|-2-
B|-3- (Play this after you're done with one of the overheads, then play the
G|-4-  overhead again)
D|-0-
A|---
E|---

Not sure what you would call this part below except the part where either Ben or Chris
are just angry at their guitars.

e|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|-7-7-7-7-7-7-\-11-11-11-11-11-11-|
D|-7-7-7-7-7-7-\-11-11-11-11-11-11-|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-5-\-9--9--9--9--9--9--|
E|-5-5-5-5-5-5-\-9--9--9--9--9--9--|

Then, go back up to the top to look at the chords if you need to!
Keep in mind, this may not be 100% correct, but it's a good place to start.

It would be nice if there were some explanation... the chords sound right but how the hell do they fit into the song? This tab is about as helpful as a cookbook that only lists ingredients. No Death Cab For Cutie here, just raw meat with a flour and salt garnish.

Tab incomplete. Lists the chords and the riff, but has nothing about how they fit with the lyrics. Can't match the tab with the song.
