HUMAN RACING - Nik Kershaw

Tabbed by: Jonathan Murray

This is what I think he plays on the acoustic version of the song. 
I am slightly unsure of the CAdd9 and G chords I have transcribed on the
"...with paper faces" part of the verse, but they sound decent to my ears. 
The Eb/G and F/A  first inversion chords look difficult to play but they 
aren't as bad as they look. They do sound better than the standard chords 
because they give a nice descending bassline, but they could also be 
substituted for the standard Eb and F chords without ruining the chorus. 

Note that some of the chords (C, F, etc.) are played as both major and minor 
versions during different parts of the song, so pay attention to this in the 
tab.

It's a nice song and the way the vocal melody moves over some fairly sharp 
key changes is great. Shame about the mullet. 

Tuning: Standard
Intro: Play the melody over an A chord
