Max Bemis
Max Bemis and the Painful Splits

Notes:
(1) During the verse, the Dsus4-D means that the normal length for one chord is split 
between the two.
It's just a stylistic thing, not really necessary but more like the recording.
(2) In the chorus he plays Em7 8 times and Cadd9 4 times at normal tempo, then 7 double 
time stopping short.
But I'm sure you could pick it up if you listen to it.
(3) I'm not sure if there is actually a Cadd9 in the verse, but I think so.
It feels like it belongs, and it sounds good, so whatever.

I've tried to make this as exact as possible, but these are some pretty lo-fi recordings 
and Youtube vids so it's hard to make out some of it.
It works for playing the song, but if you have something better, correct me.
Don't just whine or berate me if you think it's wrong. Thanks!

Standard Tuning

Chords:
Am7   (022033)
Fadd9 (x32033)
C     (320033)
Gsus4 (xx0233)
G     (xx0232)

Am7                Fadd9
I seem to split my jeans
C                       Gsus4-G
With each stride that I take
Am7            Fadd9
Muddled by the past
        C               Gsus4-G
And the ghosts of my mistakes
Am7               Fadd9
With coffee as my fuel
     C                 Gsus4-G
Or a zombie's lurching stance
Am7            Fadd9
I pace and pry away
         C            Gsus4-G
With the devil's idle hands

(Chorus)
      Am7             Fadd9
And I waste it all on dreams
Am7             Fadd9
Waste it all on dreams
Am7             Fadd9
Waste it all on dreams
Am7             Fadd9
Waste it all on dreams

Am7           Fadd9
God is in the sky
         C                  Gsus4-G
And He's annoyed by my true voice
Am7                 Fadd9
I choose to let Him down
            C           Gsus4-G
As if there ever were a choice
Am7           Fadd9
How am I even loved?
       C           Gsus4-G
How am I a married man?
Am7              Fadd9
Why do they even care
        C                  Gsus4-G
Why I'm allowed to start a band?

(Chorus)

Solo: Verse chords x2
Here's what I play. It may not be exact, but you get the idea. It's just supposed to be 
the melody.
In terms of leads I have no clue as to what Max is ever doing, nothing I do ever sounds 
exactly right.
(I've only tabbed the high strings because it's easier to read)
