'Automatic Flowers' by Our Lady Peace
From the Album "Clumsy"
Drop Db tuning
tabbed by jjhand

Thanks to some help from the other tab at Ultimate-Guitar.com, I was able to get 
this tab together easily. I fixed up the riffs and solo. Please rate & comment.

   * last note is picked as the string bends to steadily increase pitch
  


Repeat Pre Chorus, with Lyrics:
"She never, admitted,
she never could sing
i bet she always, remembered
She's wasting all her time"



Repeat Chorus several times to end. Mike Turner comes in with a random part where he
plays around the 10th fret high Eb string with random bends and picking and sliding. 
There is no real pattern to it, so I suggest to just wing it or make something better up.

Last Chord:
eb|------|
Gb|------|
Bb|------|
Db|--0---|
Ab|--0---|
Db|--0---|


Key:

~   vibrato
h   hammer-on
p   pull-off
b   bend string
r   release bend & lower string pitch
/ \ sliding up or down string
TP  tremelo picking (repetitively pick fast and evenly)
