                             "BARE" - Matt Nathanson
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey yall! The is my first tab, so be gentle on the criticism, but any suggestions or
are certainly welcome.  I know I'm in the right ballpark here with this songs chords and
pattern becuz he has the same play style as I do. Its the strumming and palm mutes that 
this song fun.  This is a great song, and it surprised me that no one tried tabbing
The intro is used throughout the song, so if you master the intro you'll have the entire 
licked. Take note of the Chord Key:

Hitting ground
Am
Breaking open
C(add9)
Twisted around
           Am                   C(add9)
The sweet sound of the lies you told
             E
When you were broken
G
Cause they've gone away
Am
And I'm so sorry
G
Cause you're wide awake and
E                  C(add9)
Planning parties now for all the fools

Who've gone and left you bare
...Am C(add9)
*Q2*- E C(add9) *P*

Hitting ground
Am
Breaking open
C(add9)
Twisted around
           Am                   C(add9)
The sweet sound of the lies you told
             E
When you were broken

G
Cause they've gone away
Am
And I'm so sorry
G
Cause you're wide awake and
E
Planning parties now for all the fools
 C(add9)                 G...
Who've gone and left you bare

Am              *P*
They left you there
             E                G *P*
And now I'm gone with all the fools
Am         C(add9)*P*
Who left you bare
G
They left you there
C(add9) *into picking*
Said so long dear

**Lightly pick throughout for bridge (not exact)**

Sounds just as good if you improv this part with the same strings in different variations.
