Fiona Apple - Fast As You Can
Tabbed by Shane Hagan (shagan@stetson.edu)
comments and/or questions are welcome!

standard tab notation... "x" means mute or don't play that string, "\" means slide 
top line is the highest sounding string (high E), and bottom line is lowest sounding (low E)

(A) intro:  essentially just E7 to F, but here is the exact voicing for the two chords:

e:---0------0 \
b:---0------0 \
g:---1------2 \
d:---0------3 \
a:---2------3 \
e:---0------1 \

(B) Pre-chorus "you say you don't spook easy..."

e:---0------0------3------7------0-----0-----0-----0 \
b:---0------0------3------7------0-----0-----0-----0 \
g:---1------2------4------8------0-----0-----0-----0 \
d:---0------3------3------7------5-----5-----5-----5 \
a:---2------3------5------9------7-----6-----5-----4 \
e:---0------1------3------7------0-----0-----0-----0 \

(C) Chorus "fast as you can baby..."

e:---x-------x-------x-------x------x-------x-----x-- \
b:---x-------x-------x-------x------x-------x-----x-- \
g:---x-------x-------x-------x------x-------x-----8-- \
d:--10------13------12------11-----10-------8-----8-- \
a:---7------10-------9-------8------7-------7-----7-- \
e:---8------11------10-------9------8-------8-----8-- \

repeat (A), (B), and (C)... then...

(D) Bridge "sometimes my mind..."

G - F - Cmaj7 -- G - F - Am7 -- G - F - Am7 - Em - G -- G/F -- G - G/F - Cmaj7 -- G - 
- Am7 -- G - G/F - Am7 - Em - G - G/F - Em* - Ebmaj7 (chords are all tabbed out below)

     G:   F:   Cmaj7:      Am7:     Em:       G/F:        Em*:       Ebmaj7:
e:---3-----1-----0----------0--------0----------3----------7---------------x \
b:---3-----1-----0----------1--------0----------0----------8---------------8 \
g:---4-----2-----0----------0--------0----------0----------9---------------7 \
d:---5-----3-----2----------2--------2----------3----------9---------------8 \
a:---5-----3-----3----------0--------2----------x----------7---------------6 \
e:---3-----1-----x----------x--------0----------1----------x---------------x \

then (A), (B), then (C) for a couple times, then vamp on (A) as an outro (w/ optional solo on top)...

Enjoy, fellow guitarists! :D

For what it's worth, the F chord near the beginning is really something else if it's played as written, since it's got an E and a B in it. The next two chords are G7 and B7, but like most of the song they're not played with their most common voicing - which I guess is why this is a tab and not just a chord listing, even though it's chords all the way! 075000 is Em, then we get a weird run something along the lines of Em-Emmaj7-Em7-Em6. The chords in the chorus are mostly just thirds (I had to look them up to confirm my guess about how to write them, because I've never come across these on the guitar before at all) - C3 D#3 D3 C#3 C3 and then, lordy, C37?
