         SHESMOVEDON ("Lightbulb Sun" version) - Porcupine Tree
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Neverlasting
Email: movezig [at] gmail [period] com

Tuning: Standard

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is Shesmovedon from the album "Lightbulb Sun". There are a lot of
different versions of this song around because it was re-recorded for different
albums. Please note that this tab only claims to be (mostly) accurate for the
version on "Lightbulb Sun".

The other tabs I found online were rather crappy. (Either this, or they were
tabs of some version of the song that I never heard.) So here is my attempt to
provide a better tab. Please rate it and, even more important, write comments!
You can also contact me personally at movezig [at] gmail [period] com.

This tab is for one guitar only. (In the recording there are at least two other
guitars in the background with some effects.) For the strummed parts of this
song, listen to the recording to get strumming patterns, effects or chord
transitions with bells and whistles.  For the tabulature parts, I mostly
neglected note durations or effects (e.g., vibrato) except where I deemed it
helpful. Again, the recording is your friend.

Here is a summary of the song's structure. How to play the different parts is
below.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


[Riff; guitar and drums only]
[Verse]
You move in waves
You never retrace
Your newest craze
Straight out of the face by the bed unread

[Riff; bass enters]
[Verse]
I'm left behind
Like all the others
Some fall for you
It doesn't make much difference if they do

[Chorus]
She changes every time you look
By summer it was all gone -- now she's moved on
She called you every other day
So savour it it's all gone -- now she's moved on

[Riff; distorted]
[Verse; distorted]
So for a while
Everything seemed new
Did we connect?
Or was it all just biding time for you?

[Chorus; clean]
She changes every time you look (All gone away)
By summer it was all gone -- now she's moved on (She's moving on)
She called you every other day (All gone away)
So savour it it's all gone -- now she's moved on (She's moving on)

[Bridge; only clean guitar initially, bass enters in the second line]

[Chorus; only clean guitar, drums and bass entering at the very end]
She changes every time you look
By summer it was all gone -- now she's moved on
She called you every other day (All gone away)
So savour it it's all gone -- now she's moved on (She's moving on)

[Solo]

the solo, so if you can help out please do.
