                    DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE - STEADIER FOOTING
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Artist: Death Cab for Cutie
Song: Steadier Footing
Tabbed By: Josh B

I'm just going to identify these chords by their bass notes.  It does NOT actually 
the chord being played (most of them are just minors).

     B    G#    E(1) Eb    E(2)  C#    E(3)
E||----------------------------------------||
B||--4----------0----4-----5-----5-----8---||
G||----------------------------------------||
D||-------6----------1-----2---------------||
A||--2---------------------------4-----7---||
E||-------4-----0--------------------------||

[riff]
The riff is just 3 chords that you arpeggiate.
C#sus2 : x46644
Some kind of E : x7644x (barre 4, use your pinky for the 7)
Bsus2 : x24422

E||------------------------------------|
B||----------4--------4--------2-------|
G||------------6--------4--------4-----|
D||-------6---------6--------4---------|
A||---2/4---------7--------2-----------|
E||------------------------------------|

Note: when you play the riff at the end of the song, the first time he slides 4/7 when 
to the "E", the rest of the time there is no slide.

B                G#           E(1)         B
   It's gotten late and now I want to be alone.
B             G#                      E(1)          B
   All of our friends were here, they all have gone home.
           Eb               E(2)
And here I sit on the front porch
             C#             E(3)           B
watching the drunks stumble forth into the night.
                G#             E(1)            B
"You gave me a heart attack, I did not see you there.
B                    G#              E(1)            B
   I thought you had dissappeared so early away from here."
                 Eb            E(2)
and this is the chance I never got
          C#                E(3)
to make a move, but we just talk about

[riff]
the people we've met in the last five years
[riff]
and will we remember them in ten more.

B            G#               E(1)             B
   I let you bum a smoke, you quit this winter past.
B             G#                    E(1)                    B
   I've tried twice before but like this, it just would not last
