 Tabbed by: lozenger


 TUNING: Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb (both Guitars)

 What a great tune! I was sad to see there is no correct tab for
 this anywhere on the internet - when I heard it the first thing
 I wanted to do was to get playing it! This is how I do it,
 though I'm not sure how correct it is.

 The chords used in this song, besides being very cool, are all
 subtly different from their roots. So to make this tab simpler,
 I'm going to use simple chord names to mark more complicated
 chord shapes - so! When you see these written for Guitar I,
 these chord shapes below are what you need to be playing! I'll
 tab out some of the more fiddly bits later.

 Also, the whole song is played with a 4/4 rhythm, and Guitar I
 needs to mute the strings on the off beat and slam the strings
 with the right hand, whether you're strumming or picking!

 IMPORTANT!: these are the chords that guitar 1 plays, at least,
 these are what I use for this song:

      D   Am7 Am7/E  Em*  Dm7  G   G*  G** F  Cmaj7  Em
 e||----------------------------------------------------||
 B||--0----0---0-----0----0----3---1---0---3---0-----8--||

 A||--12-------------12------------------------10----7--||
 E||--10---5---0-----12---10---3---3---3---1---8--------||


 Ok, on to the song! For the intro, guitar one (the chords above the tab)
 and guitar two (the tab) plays this:

 I.       x      Am                   Am/E   Am

 II. e||-----------------------------------------------------||
     B||---------------------------12----13-12---------------||
     G||--------12-------12----(12)--(12)-----(12)---12------||
     D||----(14)------14---(14)-------------------14---(14)--||
     A||--15------(15)---------------------------------------||
     E||-----------------------------------------------------||

 I.       Am                                  Cmaj7

 II. e||------------------------------------------------------||
     B||------------------------------------------------------||
     G||--------12-------12----(12)--------------9------------||
     D||----(14)------14---(14)-------(9)-12-------12----(9)--||
     A||--14------(14)-------------10--------(10)-----10------||
     E||------------------------------------------------------||

 It looks tough, I know, but it isn't really! Just use some sweep or
 fast-ish picking to play Guitar II's part, and if you're really struggling
 then just leave out the soft notes (the ones in brackets)

 For the verses, Guitar II randomly and quietly picks around Cmaj7 along
 with Guitar I, using these chord shapes:

 I.       F   G   Cmaj7 E  Am

 II. e||----------------------||
     B||--8---8---8-----8--8--||
     G||--9---9---9-----9--9--||
     D||----------10-------7--||
     A||--8---10--------7-----||
     E||----------------------||

 And Guitar I plays the chords at the top of this tab along with the song
 as I've tried to show here!:

 F             G

 ..............If you want to be my friend,

 Cmaj7                            Em

 ..............and you want us to get along,

 F             G

 ..............Please do not expect me to

 Cmaj7                        Em

 ..............wrap it up and keep it there,

 F                       G

 ..............The observation I am doing could

 Cmaj7                   Em

 ..............easily be understood,

 F                G

 ..............As cynical demeanour,

 Cmaj7                       Em

 ..............but one of us misread.

 F      G                  Cmaj7       Em

 ..............What do you know, it happened

  F         G        Am          Cmaj7

 again.....................................


 Repeat all that for the second verse, except when it comes to
 this part, where you play something different:

 G                         Cmaj7       Em

 ..............What do you know, it happened

  F         G        Cmaj7         D

 again.....................................


 After this you play the first part of the intro again, but before you
 get to the sweep picking for Guitar II, you go back into the third verse,
 which is the same as the first, except when you come to this part, which
 is played differently again!:

 G                         Am          Cmaj7  F       G      Am     Cmaj7

 ..............what do you know, it happened again,......................


 Then just play the sweep picking part of the intro again twice, except
 on the last time, don't change to Cmaj7, and just end on the Am, with
 Guitar II playing this:

      Am                                          Am/E         Am
 e||---------------------------------------12----------------------------------||
 B||---------------------------------12-------12-----------12---------12-12----||
 G||-------12-------12----(12)---(12)--(12)------12----(12)------(12)----------||
 D||---(14)------14---(14)-----14------------------(14)------(14)--------------||
 A||-14------(14)--------------------------------------------------------------||
 E||---------------------------------------------------------------------------||

Hey, just realised, all the Ams up there should be Am7s! Sorry about that. Also, during the verses or pretty much any
time you see a G, play G* and G** straight after each other as well. Sometimes it sounds better just to go to G*, or
G**, but that's really up to you! Sorry I forgot to write these on the tab...!

oh one thing...
this is a great tab, but you failed to mention that it is actually in here a half-step too high! if this is to be played in the right key (along w/ the track) you'd actually have to tune the guitar down one half step. then it's correct. :D
peace

thanks for the comment! actually that's the very first thing on the tab, but it looks like I didn't make that clear enough! (i.e. tuning Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb at the top)
