2nd fret
This is the tab for the song Long Distance Call by Phoenix. However, this is not 
the CD version, it is the Take Away Show version from a video on Youtube. If you 
use this tab along with watching the video, you should get the hang of it. This is 
my first tab so bear with me.

CAPO ON 2ND FRET. Finger position in all chords is standard i.e. an E chord in 
this tab would still be fingered as 022100. The capo just moves all of the chords 
up a whole step so that technically, the chord E in this tab would actually be an 
F# 244322, I just write it as E because of the finger positioning. Same goes for 
A, the chord is technically a B, but with a capo on the 2nd fret it is fingered as 002220.

In short, just act as if the capo on the 2nd fret is where the fretboard begins. 

Below, in addition to the chords on the left, which use a capo, you can play 
without a capo using the finger positioning on the right.

A - 224442
F#/Gbm - 466444
E - 244322
D - 222454
Bm - 446654 
D(bar 7th fret) - 779997
C#/Dbm - 668876 




A
Where to go I had no idea
F#/Gbm   E

D
26.10 was the price to pay
F#/Gbm   E

A                                  F#/Gbm
A messed up kid with no ideals at all
        E
I thought

        A
Those 26.10
                       F#/Gbm
I shouldn't give em away
E

Repeat this until the buildup to the chorus. Listen to the song to get the rhythm 
of the transition between chords.

Bm
I'm far gone but your long distance call 
    (slide up)D(bar 7)    C#/Dbm       Bm
And your capi-------------tal          letters keep me asking for more
 
A
It's never been like that
It's never been like that
    Bm
It's never been like that
It's never been like that
C#/Dbm
It's never been like that
It's never been like that
D(bar 7)
It's never been like that
It's never been like that, no!


Bm
I'm far gone but your long distance call 
    (slide up)D(bar 7)    C#/Dbm       Bm
And your capi-------------tal          letters keep me asking for more

Pretty much the same throughout the rest of the song. The part that goes
"Long time, no see
Long time, no say"
uses the same chords as the buildup to the chorus part.

cheers :)

Sorry about this mistake but the second time around when it says "Those 26.10 I shouldn't give em away" SHOULD BE LIKE THIS:

F#/F#m

NOT THIS

F#/F#m

thanks, Alex
