                           Desperate - Kurt Travis
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jonny

I have a video on youtube too https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pDjcpQd48cY

I play it differently than Zach Garren but I think it's close



Tuning: Standard 

Both the opening and verses played like this on clean, let each chord ring out

e|-------4------4------2-------2---------------------------------------------|
B|-------5------4------2-------2---------------------------------------------|
G|-------6------4------2-------2---------------------------------------------|
D|-------7------6------4-------4---------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus (listen for the playing rhythm) The whole thing played twice with distortion

e|------7h9-----------------------------------------------------|     |--7h9----------|
B|---------7/9---7-9--------------7-9---------------------------|     |-----7/9-------|

G|----------------------------4h6-------4------2-----------------------------|
D|------6b--4----6b---4-------4h7-------6------4-----------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
                              ^back to clean right here


The ending and last chorus is the opening chords played in a different rhythm


e|--44--444--444--444--4\44--444--444--444--4\22--222--222--222--222--222--222--222----|

The entire tab is solid, the only part I would change would be in the chorus instead of a slide it would be more of a hammer on. I tried it this way myself and it sounds allot better. But overall excellent tab.

Finally someone tabs out a whole Kurt song. I'm sick of people just doing intro tabs. I'd rather just ear it out. Great job man!!!!! Hopefully more to come!!!
