                             TITLE TRACK - Death Cab for Cutie
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: A.J. Conner
Email: ajconner123@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

  Guitar 1: Main Riff - Start with the tone down on your guitar, or use the neck pickup.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------2------------------------------------------|
G|------4-------4-------4-------4-------4-------4-------4/6/9----------------|
D|----2---2---2---2---2---2---2-------2---2---2---2---2----------------------|
A|--4-------2-------4-------0-------4-------2-------0------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Guitar 2: Tone also very low. This is mostly improv, but there is a melody.
  It's also hard to hear and it may just be keyboards, but it's worth tabbing.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-11-11-11-11-13-13-13-13-13-13-13-11-11\9~~-|
D|---X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X-X---|
A|--11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11--9--9--9--9-11-11-11-11-11-11-11--9--9\7~~-|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
  
 Both guitars play their above parts 6 times. 

  Chorus: Play twice
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------0------0-0----------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------6-------4/8----8-------8-8-----------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------X---9---X-X-----------------------------------------|
A|--0-0-----0-0----------X---X---9-9-----------------------------------------|
E|--------------------7--7---7-----------------------------------------------|

  Play the main riff once, then the second time crank your tone up.
  Continue to play it that way through the next verse.
 
  Guitar 2 comes in with the subtle harmonies: (REPEAT THROUGH VERSE)
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--12--12--12--12--12----------------------12--12--12--12--12--12--12-------|
G|----13--13--13--13--13-14-13-13-11-11-13----13--13--13--13--13--13--13-----|
D|------------------------X--X--X-X---X--X-----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------12\11-11\9---9/11-----------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Play the chorus 4 times, then outro:

  Guitar 1: (Over and over)
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------4---4---0----------------------------0------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------6--6---------------------|
D|------6--4--2----------------------6--4--2---------------------------------|
A|--0-0--0--0--0-4-4---4---4---4-0-0--0--0--0-2/7-7--7--7---7----------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Guitar 2: Repeat until Ben is done singing.
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----12--12--12------10--10--10---------------------------------------------|
G|--13--13--13--13--13--13--13--13-------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  After Ben stops singing, guitar 2 switches to:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12------------------------------|
G|--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X------------------------------|
D|--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Eventually, Guitar 1 cuts and guitar 2 finishes playing (very lightly):
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12-12------------------------------|
G|--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9---X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X------------------------------|
D|--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7---9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

very good tab-- however i think the first part of the chorus is easier if you play it like i have below-- its the same notes posted but on different strings-- this way you can just put your hand in the position for an A chord and then move it up to the position for the B chord-- just a suggestion and again nice tab
