Elbow: Station Approach
Tabbed by: Bas Vos

Guitar-wise, this song is mainly a repetition of riff 1 shown below.


Standard tuning


  Riff 1:
 |   
E|----------------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
G|-------0---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-|-------0---0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0-|
D|----------------------------------------|---------3--3--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5---|
A|---------3--3--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5---|-0h2h3----------------------------------|
D|-0h2h3----------------------------------|----------------------------------------|
     
..and repeat..


from some point (1.13 min), something like this is repeatedly played over 
the piano chords:


  Riff 2:

E|-8--8--10--------------------|--13--13--15s\--------------------|
B|-8--8--10--------------------|--13--13--------------------------|
G|-9--9--10--------------------|--14--14--------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|----------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------|----------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------|----------------------------------|


Towards the end of the song, I think they play this chord (barred G):

E|-3--|
B|-3--|
G|-4--|
D|-5--|
A|-5--|
D|-3--|

over and over. 

Listen to the recording for the strumming pattern on this chord;
I think it shifts the accents from the lower to the higher strings
every now and then. 


Please feel free to make your own additions/corrections.


Have fun,

Bas

great song! and thx for the tab!

I think there is one slight correction though:

tuning seems to be drop d (tune the low e string down to d)

and the hammerons seem to be 0h3h5

You are right, this song is indeed in dropped D, with a 0h3h5 hammeron for the openening riff. Thanks for the correction!

Great to know there's other people out there who love and appreciate Elbow as much as I do! Just to add to your tab, I think near the end when they're playing the barred G, they also seem to add a C...alternating between the two.
