"Star Star"
set tempo
Song: Star, Star
Artist: The Frames

This is how I play Star, Star on an acoustic guitar. It's kind of a mixture of the
on Dance the Devil, Breadcrumb Trail, and Setlist.

Basically you play the chords E, A, B, A repeatedly, in that order.

I play the B chord like this:                 and C#m like this:

                e:-0-|                e:-0-|
                B:-4-|                B:-5-|
                G:-4-|                G:-6-|
                D:-4-|                D:-6-|
                A:---|                A:-4-|
                E:---|                E:---|



Here is a rough indication of where the chords go:

E           B               A
Star, Star, teach me how to shine, shine,

B             E                 B                A
Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind,

            B                          E
Cos I don't understand these people,

B                     A
Saying the hill's too steep, well,

         B               E                B                 A     B
They'll talk and talk forever but they'll just never climb.



E       B               A           B                         E
Falling down into these situations, bringing out the best in you,

B             A       B
Flat on your back, yeah,

    E               B             A
And Star, your every word I'm heeding,

         B            E
Can you help me to see?

        B              A     B
Cos I'm lost in the marsh.

Same chords as first verse:

Star, Star, teach me how to shine, shine,
Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind,
Cos I don't understand these people,
Saying we're all asleep, well,
They'll toss and turn forever but no rest will they find.

    c#m   A   B
And Star,         teach me how to shine.

(Middle bit - different for each version.)

E           B               A
Star, Star, teach me how to shine, shine,

B             E                 B               A
Teach me so I know what's going on in your mind.                ( X 4 )

Outro: Play intro and then strum E chord once, slowly.

E: 022100
A: x02220
B: xx4440
C#m: x46650   or  446654

I dunno if this is the right place get this corrected, but I submitted this tab ("Star Star" by the Frames) a few days ago and have now realised that I made a mistake in it. Where I wrote ""Basically you play the chords E, A, B, A repeatedly, in that order" it should have been in the order: E, B, A, B. I wonder if you could change it for me? It's going to keep annoying me otherwise :-)
Thanks a lot,
