                             SKULLCRUSHER MOUNTAIN - Jonathan Coulton
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: John Shannon (robotfrom94)
E-mail: john.shannon1994@hotmail.com

Tuning: standard
So I just tabbed this from the chord pattern plus what I think sounds cool (but is still 
true to the chords)

INTRO: just keep strumming the open E on every beat (alternatively use any other octave 
of E)
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|

VERSE 1:
'Welcome to my secret lair on Skullcrusher Mountain...'
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

Keep playing the E until the end of the line 'I see you've met my assistant Scarface'

'His Appearance is quite disturbing...'
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|0-0-0-0---------0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-----------------------------------------|
E|--------0-0-0-0---------------------------------------------------------|

'He's a sweetheart, calls me master'
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+
G|-------------------------------(2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4)------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|0-0-0-0---------0-0-2-2-0-0-2-2-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-------------------------|
E|--------0-0-0-0---------------------------------------------------------|
I play the higher octave (on the G string) because I think it works better with the 
higher pitched singing

CHORUS:
I sometimes play this doing alternate octaves (i.e. playing the open E for the on beat, 
and the 2nd on D for the off beat) try it and make up your own mind

  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+

E|0000000000000000--------------------------------------------------------|x2

  'say I shouldn't kill you yet....'
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|0000000022222222 repeat the E until the 2nd verse starts----------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat verse and chorus then

BRIDGE:
now this bit has quite a lot of leeway, you can either play the lower octave, a higher 
octave, or just not at all.
Whatever you end up doing, just play the root note of the following chords:

            A(open fret A string)     G#m (4th fret on E)
Picture the two of us alone inside my golden submarine
         A                  B7 (2nd fret on A)
While up above the waves my doomsday squad
  E         E7 (both these two are open E string)
ignites the atmosphere
            A
And all the fools who lead their foolish lives
    G#m             C#7 (4th fret A string)
may find it quite explosive
        F#m (2nd fret E)                 A                B7
Well it won't mean half as much to me if I don't have you here...

Then repeat VERSE and CHORUS and finish the chorus off by playing this three times:

  'say I shouldn't kill you yet....'
  1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+1+2+3+4+
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|0000000022222222--------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Keep strumming the 2nd fret on D (or open E) until the song ends.
