                             Enter Shikari - Adieu
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Nick Whitham
Email: whitham_is@hotmail.com

I couldn't find a decent tab to this song, so I thought I'd give it a go.
I tried to incorporate the strumming pattern into the tab, but it's
probably best if you listen to the song and interpret it for yourself. I
haven't added the little electric guitar parts that go over the top
of the verse. Couldn't be bothered, and chances are you only want to learn
the main acoustic riff anyway. PLEASE TAKE NOTE OF THE TUNING, otherwise
this WILL sound retarded.

Tuning: Db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb

KEY:
| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| x  Mute note

Intro: (two ways: recorded version or live version - see below)
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-7---7--7---7--7/9---9--9---9--9/11--11-11--11-11------------------------|
|-x---x--x---x--x-x---x--x---x--x-x---x--x---x--x-------------------------|
|-5---5--5---5--5/7---7--7---7--7/9---9--9---9--9-------------------------|
|-0---0--0---0--0-0---0--0---0--0-0---0--0---0--0---x2--------------------|
You don't have to play the top E string, I just think it sounds better.


|-5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5----------------------------------|
|-7---7--7--7---7--7--7---7--7--7---7--7----------------------------------|
|-7---7--7--7---7--7--7---7--7--7---7--7--7-------------------------------|
|-5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--x-------------------------------|
|-5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5-(let ring)--------------------|
|-5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--0-------------------------------|

OR; In the live version, sometimes Chris plays the first part of the intro
like this:
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-7---7--7---7--7/8---8--8---8--8/10--10-10--10-10------------------------|
|-7---7--7---7--7/9---9--9---9--9/11--11-11--11-11------------------------|
|-x---x--x---x--x-x---x--x---x--x-x---x--x---x--x-------------------------|
|-5---5--5---5--5/7---7--7---7--7/9---9--9---9--9-------------------------|
|-0---0--0---0--0-0---0--0---0--0-0---0--0---0--0---x2--------------------|
...which I think sounds way cooler.

Verse: (pretty much the same as the intro, but I've done it with the words
so you can see where everything fits)
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|------7---7--7---7--7/9---9--9---9--9/11--11-11--11-11-------------------|
|------x---x--x---x--x-x---x--x---x--x-x---x--x---x--x--------------------|
|------5---5--5---5--5/7---7--7---7--7/9---9--9---9--9--------------------|
|------0---0--0---0--0-0---0--0---0--0-0---0--0---0--0--------------------|
 And I Lo-           ng    for you   to    appear, after

|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-7---7--7---7--7/9---9--9---9--9/11--11-11--11-11------------------------|
|-x---x--x---x--x-x---x--x---x--x-x---x--x---x--x-------------------------|
|-5---5--5---5--5/7---7--7---7--7/9---9--9---9--9-------------------------|
|-0---0--0---0--0-0---0--0---0--0-0---0--0---0--0-------------------------|
  Lo-            sing    your   way   across star-riddled 

|-5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5----------------------------------|
|-7---7--7--7---7--7--7---7--7--7---7--7----------------------------------|
|-7---7--7--7---7--7--7---7--7--7---7--7--7--7-7--7--7-7/9--9-9\7--7-7----|
|-5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--x--x-x--x--x-x-x--x-x-x--x-x----|
|-5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5--5-5--5--5-5/7--7-7\5--5-5----|
|-5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--5---5--5--0--0-0--0--0-0-0--0-0-0--0-0----|
  skies,                  To carry you ho-me

Repeat (in second round of verses, only play once)

THEN; there's TWO ways of playing this following part. The first one is
what Chris plays in the recorded version, the second is just good for
when you're playing the song by yourself and want some meaty chords. I use
the second way just 'cos it sounds a bit juicier.

|--------------------------------5---5--5---------------------------------|
|--------------------------------5---5--5---------------------------------|
|--11--11-11\9---9--9\7---7--7---7---7--7---------------------------------|
|--x---x--x--x---x--x-x---x--x---5---5--5---------------------------------|
|--9---9--9-\7---7--7\5---5--5---5---5--5---------------------------------|
|--0---0--0--0---0--0-0---0--0---5---5--5-------x3------------------------|
 I che-      rish     my          loss,
 A ge-       ntle     re-         minder,
   Li-   fe  is       un-         kind

|--5---5--5---5----5--5---------------------------------------------------|
|--5---5--5---5----5--5---------------------------------------------------|
|--6---6--6h7-7----6--6h7-------------------------------------------------|
|--5---5--5---5----5--5----------------(back to intro and verse)----------|
|--5---5--5---5----5--5---------------------------------------------------|
|--5---5--5---5----5--5---------------------------------------------------|
          ...at the best of times

Here's the second way of doing it with the juicy chords:

|--5---5--5--5---5--5---2---2--2---5---5--5-------------------------------|
|--7---7--7--5---5--5---3---3--3---5---5--5-------------------------------|
|--7---7--7--7---7--7---4---4--4---7---7--7-------------------------------|
|--7---7--7--7---7--7---4---4--4---5---5--5-------------------------------|
|--5---5--5--5---5--5---2---2--2---5---5--5-------x4----------------------|
|--0---0--0--0---0--0---2---2--2---5---5--5-------------------------------|


THEN; there's this part:
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-11--11-11/9---9--9---7\9--9\11--11\12/11--------------------------------|
|-x---x--x--x---x--x---x-x--x-x---x--x--x---------------------------------|
|-9---9--9-/7---7--7---5\7--7\9---9-\10/9---------------------------------|
|-0---0--0--0---0--0---0-0--0-0---0--0--0---------------------------------|
 Bra-ce your-self, 'cos I think I'm co-ming f-or you
 (Lo-ok up in-to the sk-y)

|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-11--11-11/9---9--9---7\9--9\11--11\9/7----------------------------------|
|-x---x--x--x---x--x---x-x--x-x---x--x-x----------------------------------|
|-9---9--9-/7---7--7---5\7--7\9---9-\7/5----------------------------------|
|-0---0--0--0---0--0---0-0--0-0---0--0-0----------------------------------|

|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

|-x---x--x--x---x--x---x-x--x-x---x--x--x---------------------------------|
|-9---9--9-/7---7--7---5\7--7\9---9-\10/9---------------------------------|
|-0---0--0--0---0--0---0-0--0-0---0--0--0---------------------------------|

|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-11--11-11/9---9--9---7\9--9\11--11\9/7----7\9--9\11--11\9/7-------------|
|-x---x--x--x---x--x---x-x--x-x---x--x-x----x-x--x-x---x--x-x-------------|
|-9---9--9-/7---7--7---5\7--7\9---9-\7/5----5\7--7\9---9-\7/5-------------|
|-0---0--0--0---0--0---0-0--0-0---0--0-0----0-0--0-0---0--0-0-------------|

Basically, that's a whole lot of sliding up and down on the fret board :)

FINALLY; the real pretty-sounding part:

I found this way of playing it by watching a recording from a concert.
If this is too difficult, other tabs have a different method.
