Song: Hold Me Down
Band: Motion City Soundtrack
Tabbed By: Everett Walls
Notes: This is a great song, the bass line has a good feel in the song, and it all sort 
flows. im 100% sure this is right, because i locked myself in my room playing this song 
and over again until i got the tab right.

Standard Tuning

The Bass doesnt come in until after Justin says: "or talk About" (O:36)

G|-----|
D|-----|
A|-4---|
E|---4-|

Then, It Changes To This At the verse (0:52)

G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|-4-4h6-----3-4|
E|-------4-6----|

changes it up here (1:08)

G|--------------|
D|--------------|
A|-4-4h6-----3--|
E|-------4-6---2|

Let These Notes Ring:

G|----------|
D|----------|
A|----------|
E|2----2----|

Bass Goes Silent For The Next Bit,So Chill And Rest Your Hand.

It Comes Back In At The Beggining of The Second Verse. (1:56)
Repeat this part as needed, but after your first time through, do not play the bracketed note

G|-----------3-5-3-----------------3-5-3-8-6-------------------------|
D|-------3-6-------6-----------3-6-----------------------------------|
A|-(4)---4---------------4---4---------------------------------------|
E|-----4-------------------4-----------------------------------------|

Let this last note ring out.

G|-----------3-5-3-8---------------------------|

A|-4---4---------------------------------------|
E|---4---------------2-------------------------|

"You Hold Me Down..." (2:28)

G|------|
D|------|
A|------|
E|-2---2|

Now this is the last playable bit of the song. (2:44)

G|------------------------------|
D|------------------------------|
A|---------------444------------|
E|-666666666-444-----44-22222222|

Then just ride that little bit out and stop playing before Justin sings "how will i 
the news to you?" (3:47)
and then the song goes into all that weird feeback and keyboard stuff.
this is my second tab, and is one of my favuorite songs to play. feedback?
