Glass Fields
by: Idiot Pilot
tabbed by: Ace Electric

An acoustic track by Idiot Pilot, off of the "A Silent Film" EP.

Tuning: D A D G B E (Drop D)

The strumming pattern should be easy enough to figure out from the song.
Picking patterns noted where needed.

Intro

This intro can either be played as one guitar, or with two guitars (the original
is two guitars
layered over each other; one providing more of a rhythmic part, and the other providing 
low end of
all the chords).

Intro 1

E---5---5---10---5-|
B---7---7---12---7-|
G---7---7---12---7-|
D---0---5---10---5-|
A---x---x---x----x-|
D---x---x---x----x-|

Intro 2, Verse (the same as one, but now the chord is complete, giving a fuller sound)

E---5---5---10---5-|
B---7---7---12---7-|
G---7---7---12---7-|
D---x---5---10---5-|
A---5---5---10---5-|
D---0---5---10---5-|

Pre-Chorus

E-----------------------|
B-----------------------|
G-----------------------|
D---9--12-11--xx--12-14-|
A---9--9--9---xx--8--8--|
D---9--9--9---xx--8--8--|

Chorus

E------------------------5--|
B------------------------5--|
G------------------------7--|
D--00--16-16--00--16-16--7--|
A--00--0--0---00--0--0---5--|
D--00--0--0---00--0--0---5--| (Repeat this 3x, then)

E--x--x--x--|
B--x--x--x--|
G--4--5--7--|
D--4--3--0--|
A--2--3--0--|
D--2--3--0--|  (Hold to ring out, then back to Verse)


Breakdown

The picking part is based mostly around these chords:


E---x---x---x---|
B---7---x---x---|
G---7---7---7---|
D---x---7---9---|
A---5---5---9---|
D---0---5---9---|

(and then this chord, for the transition at 'you're headed back to shore')

E---x---|
B---x---|
G---12--|
D---12--|
A---10--|
D---10--|

My interpretation:

E--------------------------------------------|
B--------7----7---7--------------------------|
G----------7----7---7---7------7----7----7---|
D----0-7-----7--------7-----7----7----7----7-|
A--------------------------------------------|
D--0----------------------5------------------| ("Concrete acres and glass fields...")

E---------------------------------------------------|
B---------------------------------------------------|
G-----------7----7-----7-------------7----7----7----|
D--------9----9----9-----9--------7----7----7----7--|
A-----9---------9----9-----9------------------------|
D--9-------------------------9--5-------------------| ("We're all trying to reach
 higher ground...")

E-------------------------------x----5------|
B--------7----7---7-------------x----5------|
G----------7----7---7---7-------12---7------|
D----0-7-----7--------7---------12---7------|
A-------------------------------11---5------|
D--0----------------------11-11-11---5------| ("Any way you turn, you're headed back to shore.")

Background harmonics on:

19th fret, B, G, and D string
And then 12 fret, G string, and back to the 19th on the B, G, and D string
You can vary it up as you see fit (I don't know the actual part)

I'm not sure if you will read the comments but thank you so much for tabbing this song! I've been waiting on a Glass Fields tab for so long! You did an excellent job, five stars, thanks!
