                             Lit - Moonshine
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Matt Benecke
Email: lpwjbklyn@gmail.com

Tuning: Half Step Down (low to high Eb Ab Db Gb Bb eb)

My favorite Lit tune off of arguably their best album. I used the album version
and this live performance to create the tab:

The spacing between the chords will be an attempt to imply the rhythm but as
always it's best to listen to the song as you try to learn it to figure it out
for yourself. I will also attempt to plot out the strumming pattern above the
section.

*Note: The verse Em chord can be played simply as 022xxx instead of 0224xx--I just
feel like the extra note fills it out a bit more.


*Note 2: The verse begins by allowing the last chord of the bridge to ring out.
The spacing in the tab is meant to imply the duration that each of the chords
of the third verse should be allowed to ring out. There is a double-length gap
in between the final Bm and C.



Below is an acoustic arrangement that can be played by a second guitar as an
accompaniment to the electric guitar. An alternate way to play the chords
(except for the B5) would be to finger the 3rd fret on the b and e strings
throughout as noted by the chords in parentheses.

Chords Used:

Em    022000   (or 022033)

C/E   032010   (or 032033)

G     320033

F#5   x  9 11 11 0 0

Em
I can’t remember what it is you did

Somewhere along the way I’m giving in

The way it makes me feel around you

             C/E
You make the wrong seem right

G               Bsus4
Any old time of night

I get so nervous when I hear the phone

You blocked the number so I never know

I can’t forget the way you sound and now

How is it when it rains at nighttime

             C/E        Em
You turn the water into moonshine

             C/E
And make the sun shine light

Carry on through the night

I never meant to fall this hard again

                                       G

How is it when it rains at nighttime
