*Finley Quaye - Dice:
Finley Quaye - Dice (2003)

Tabbed by: trevgreg
Email: trevgreg1227@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Here is the most I could get out of how to play the guitar parts in this song.
If you want a huge hint on how to play this, the entire song uses the exact same
chord arrangement as the Dandy Warhols song 'Bohemian Like You', just much slower.

Chords:
B    7 9 9 x x x
D    x 5 7 7 x x
A    5 7 7 x x x
E    x 7 9 9 x x


This is the main chord arrangement, which is basically straightfoward barre chords during the verses.
    B                D                A                E    
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-------------------9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-------|
D|--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-------|
A|--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-------|
E|--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5------------------------|

The chorus uses a more free strumming approach, with only six or so sturms for each chord instead of eight.
    B                D                A                E      
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------7--7-7--7-7-7---------------------9--9-9--9-9-9---------|
D|--9--9-9--9-9-9----7--7-7--7-7-7----7-7--7-7--7-7----9--9-9--9-9-9---------|
A|--9--9-9--9-9-9----5--5-5--5-5-5----7-7--7-7--7-7----7--7-7--7-7-7---------|
E|--7--7-7--7-7-7---------------------5-5--5-5--5-5--------------------------|


Here is the bridge arrangement, also with an easy strum to it:
    D                                 A                E
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--7-7-7-7-7-7-7----7-7-7-7-7-7-7---------------------9-9-9-9-9-9-9---------|
D|--7-7-7-7-7-7-7----7-7-7-7-7-7-7----7-7-7-7-7-7-7----9-9-9-9-9-9-9---------|
A|--5-5-5-5-5-5-5----5-5-5-5-5-5-5----7-7-7-7-7-7-7----7-7-7-7-7-7-7---------|
E|------------------------------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5--------------------------|

Here is the melody played at the beginning and during the choruses in the song:
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--7--9--10(h)------------9--10--9-------9--10--9-------9--10--9------------|
G|----------------------9---------------9--------------9---------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Here is the other melody that's played during the second verse and some of the bridge:
e|--7-----10-----9-----7-----------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


Verse One:
B     D      A      E
I was crying over you
I am smiling I think of you
Where your gardens have no walls
Breathe in the air if you care, you compare, don't say farewell

Chorus One:
B     D      A      E
Nothing can compare
To when you roll the dice and you swear your love's for me
Nothing can compare
To when you roll the dice and you swear your love's for me

Verse Two:
B     D      A      E
I was crying over you
I am smiling I think of you
Misty mornings and water falls
Breathe in the air if you care, you compare, don't say farewell

Chorus Two:
B     D      A      E
Nothing can compare
To when you roll the dice and you swear your love's for me
Nothing can compare
To when you roll the dice and you swear your love's for me
Nothing can compare
To when you roll the dice and you swear your love's for me

Bridge:
D       A        E
Virtuous sensibility
Escape velocity

Chorus Three:
B     D      A      E
And nothing can compare
To when you roll the dice and you swear your love's for me
Nothing can compare
To when you roll the dice and you swear your love's for me
Nothing can compare
To when you roll the dice and you swear your love's for me
Breathe in the air if you care, you compare, don't say farewell

Nothing

Hey, good tab, but the chord is B minor as opposed to B major ;)

It's fine at the beginning as a power chord (B5), but afterwards you wrote B as opposed to Bm. Other than that, the tab is great :)
