DEATH CAB FOR CUTIE - WE LOOKED LIKE GIANTS


Tabbed by: TONY DEFRANCESCO
Email: EYTJ@COMCAST.NET
Date Issued: Tuesday, May 16, 2006
Level of Difficulty: Intermediate
How Long It Took Me To Master: Roughly 2 hours

This I have created this tab on my own free time, this is the CORRECT way to play this
and trust me, it will take a while to learn correctly so be patient.. its awesome to play
you get it right. So please be patient, this tab is the correct way to play this song 
believe me, its not easy if your playing it by yourself..

My advice would be to play the tab while listening to the song, and listen closely
I included everything, even the faintest guitar sounds.. so listen closely..

Again, this tab is not easy, so if your looking for an easy way to learn this song
then look elsewhere, because there is no easy way to play this song, unless its incorrect..
take plenty of practice and actually listening to the real song.


KEY

.  - palm mute
/  - slide up to
  - slide down to
h  - hammer on
p  - pull off
,  - slight palm mute
~  - hold note


INTRO Part 1

This is the intro, you can hear it very faintly the first 30 seconds..

|-------------|
|-------------|
|-------------|
|-------------|  (x3)
|-5~-4~-9~-7~,|
|-------------|
(slightly palm mute, just enough so it can still ring as you hold each note)


INTRO Part 2

This is my favorite part of the song, took me forever to figure it out and get it exactly
right..

|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|---7-6------------7-6----------7-6-7-6-7-6-7---7-9-7-9-----------|
|-9-----7h9-7-4--9-----7h9-7-4--7-------------7-----------------9-|  (x2)
|-9--------------9--------------5-------------7-----------------9-|
|-7--------------7----------------------------5----------7-10-9-7-|

VERSE

Just listen to the song, and you'll figure out where you need to play this..

|----------------|
|----------------|
|-7~-------------|
|-7~-7~----------|  (x2)
|-5~-7~--------7-|
|----5~-7-10-9-9-|


Replay INTRO Part 2 one time.

|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|---7-6------------7-6----------7-6-7-6-7-6-7---7-9-7-9-----------|
|-9-----7h9-7-4--9-----7h9-7-4--7-------------7-----------------9-|
|-9--------------9--------------5-------------7-----------------9-|
|-7--------------7----------------------------5----------7-10-9-7-|


Replay VERSE twice

Just listen to the song, and you'll figure out where you need to play this..

|----------------|
|----------------|
|-7~-------------|
|-7~-7~----------|  (x2)
|-5~-7~--------7-|
|----5~-7-10-9-9-|

CHORUS

Again, just listen to the song, and it will make things easier..

|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------|
|-9------5------7--------9------5------7------4------7------|
|-9-(x8)-5-(x8)-7-(x16)--9-(x8)-5-(x8)-7-(x8)-4-(5x)-7-(x3)-|
|-7------3------5--------7------3------5------2------5------|


Play INTRO Part 2 two more times..

|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
|---7-6------------7-6----------7-6-7-6-7-6-7---7-9-7-9-----------|
|-9-----7h9-7-4--9-----7h9-7-4--7-------------7-----------------9-|  (x2)
|-9--------------9--------------5-------------7-----------------9-|
|-7--------------7----------------------------5----------7-10-9-7-|


For the rest of the song, you basically just repeat this.. the part where theres no singing

|----------|
|----------|
|-7-7-7----|
|-7-7-7-9~-|
|-5-5-5-9~-|
|-------7~-|

Well thats it, everything is as accurate as I can get it, I'm sure that 90% of this is right.
