The Freshmen - Jay Brannan (Cover of The Verve Pipe
Tabbed by:  Tim Hoekstra
Tuning: Standard


This tab is pretty close to the piano part.

CAPO: put it on 2, but don't cover the bottom E string.  It seems weird, but work with 
it until you can play the E string un-capo-ed and the top 5 strings (ADGBe) with capo 2 
at the same time.

*note: if you can't get the 5 string capo thing to work for you, just play the "OPEN" in 
the chorus as a 0 on the third (D) string.  I suppose you could use a DADGBe tuning, 
but I don't like retuning my guitar all the time if I don't have to.

All fretting is numbered from the capo.

Have Fun!

Here's where the 5-string capo arrangement comes into play: it gives you the low note he 
plays on the piano.  In this tab, it's written as "OPEN", just don't fret anything when 
you play it.

Intro: (Verse Riff)

Verse 1: (Verse Riff)
When I was young I knew everything
And she a punk who rarely ever took advice
Now I'm guilt-stricken, sobbing with my head on the floor
Stop a baby's breath and a shoe full of rice, no

Pre-Chorus: (Pre-Chorus Riff)
I can't be held responsible, 'cause she was touching her face
I won't be held responsible, she fell in love in the first place

Chorus: (Chorus Riff)
For the life of me I can not remember
What made us think that we were wise, and we'd never compromise
For the life of me I can not believe
We'd ever die for these sins, we were merely freshmen (Fill 1.)

Verse 2: (Verse Riff)
My best friend took a week's vacation to forget her
His girl took a week's worth of Valium and slept
And now he's guilt-stricken sobbing with his head on the floor
Thinks about her now and how he never really wept, he says

Pre-Chorus (Second Pre-chorus)

Chorus (Chorus Riff)

Verse 3: (Verse Riff)
We've tried to wash our hands of all of this
We never talk of our lacking relationships
And how we're guilt-stricken sobbing with our heads on the floor
We fell through the ice when we tried not to slip, we'd say



Chorus 2X (Chorus Riff 2X)

Outro (Intro Riff 2X w/ Fill 1., then Outro Riff)
