                             Stupid Boy - Keith Urban
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Isitgay2likeKeithUrban?
Email:

Here is Keith Urban's version of Stupid Boy.  I learned it by tinkering and
watching the video of him playing.  There may be a few extra notes in the intro and 
some chord variations of the major stuff I have tabbed out.  This should get you going in 
right direction though.  Good luck.

Tuning: Standard w/ Capo on the 1st fret (Tab is written relative to capo)

   now you lost the only thing that ever made you feel alive


For the lead work:

Key of D major

1st solo is F# Phrygian / B Aeolian

REMEMBER, THE TAB IS RELATIVE TO THE CAPO, SO MOVE EVERYTHING UP ONE FRET

e|-----15br14-14br-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------17p15br~----------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------16br~-14--------------14------14-----14-16~--|
D|----------------------------------16p14\12h14/16-----/16----/16--------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

The rest is noodling in the F# Phrygian / B Aeolian until the interesting part: You must 
every note.

@5:23

e|-----------------------14--15--14----------------------------------------|
B|---15-----17---------------------15--------------------------------------|
G|-14--14-14--14-14-14-14------------14------------------------------------|

E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

If you believe Keith Urban is not capable of playing something like this
you should listen to Rollercoaster.
