Elliott Smith - Christian Brothers

Tabbed by: Nick Verveniotis

All down strums on the chords.

Tuning: Whole step down.

All the other tabs for this song are grossly inaccurate. Mine is 99% correct.
And the reason it isn't 100% correct is because I'm using more strings in a
given chord than Elliott Smith did himself. This results in a fuller sound.


Intro, solo and chrous chords:


d|-3-|-8--|-6-|----|----|-6-|
A|-3-|-8--|-6-|-8--|-10-|-8-|
F|-0-|-8--|-8-|-7--|-9--|-x-|
C|-2-|-10-|-8-|-x--|-8--|-8-|
G|-3-|-10-|-6-|-10-|-x--|-6-|
D|---|-8--|---|-10-|-8--|---|


Verse riff:

                                  "No bad dream fucker's gonna boss me around."
d|------------------|------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
A|-----3-------4--3-|-----3------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
F|------------3-3---|------------------0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
C|---3-----3h5----3-|---3--------------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-|
G|------------------|--------------0-2-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-|
D|-3-----3----------|-3-----3--3-3-------------------------------------|


Pre-chrous riff:
   

            "But it can't help me get over."
d|----------------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|
A|-----3----------1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|
F|----------------2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
C|---3------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
G|----------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
D|-3----3-3-3-2-2-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|


The lyrics, for your convenience:


No bad dream fucker's going to boss me around
Christian Brothers going to take him down
But it can't help me get over

Don't be cross, it's sick what I want
I've seen the boss blink on and off

Fake concerns is what's the matter, man
And you think I ought to shake your motherfucking hand
Well, I know how much you care

Don't be cross, it's sick what I want
I've seen the boss blink on and off

Come here by me, I want you here
Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear
Nightmares become me, it's so fucking clear

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. Welllll, it's not JUST the other tabs that're inaccurate here... This is closer in the verse patterns, but the intro/chorus chords are pretty far off. Sorry.

This is probably the best tab on this site...but your chord voicings are wrong. Elliott goes up the neck playing partial chords with lots of finger mutes. As far as I can tell from live videos the chords are like this:

d|-0-|-3-|-x-|---|----|-x-|
A|-3-|-4-|-6-|-8-|-10-|-8-|
F|-0-|-5-|-0-|-x-|-x--|-x-|
C|-2-|-5-|-5-|-8-|-10-|-8-|
G|-3-|-3-|-6-|-5-|-x--|-6-|
D|---|-x-|-x-|---|-8--|---|

Hope this helps

Thanks. At 'thanks' my comment was too short.
