Wandering Stars by Portishead
                        Tabbed by Frederic Maquet

This is one of the best songs from the "Dummy" album (but then again,
they're all
brilliant...).  It is very simple to play, and it can sound good even on
an accoustic,
if you don't mind not having the rap sounds with you...
All the strumming is downstroke, giving it that dum dum dum dum, dam dam
dam dam
feel!

[Verse 1]
B5                               G
Please could you stay a while to share my grief,
     B5                           F#
It's such a lovely day to have to always feel this way,
        B5               G
And the time that I will suffer less,
   B5                   F#
Is when I never have to wait Chorus:

          B5
Wandering stars,
    G
For whom it is reserved,
    B5                       F#
The blackness, the darkness, forever

Wandering stars,
For whom it is reserved,
The blackness, the darkness, forever

[Verse 2]
Those who have seen the needles I now tread,
Like a husk from which your darkness now has fled,
And the masks that the monsters wear,
To feed upon their prey

[Chorus 2]
Wandering stars,
For whom it is reserved,
The blackness, the darkness, forever
Wandering stars,
For whom it is reserved,
The blackness, the darkness, forever
Doubled up inside,
Take a while to share my grief,
Always doubled up inside,
Taunted, Cool,

Wandering stars,
For whom it is reserved,
The blackness, the darkness, forever
Wandering stars,
For whom it is reserved,
The blackness, the darkness, forever

Awesome job, I'll add the missing theory if it's fine with you :)

- Your G something is just G, but with the major third (B) doubled, both below and above the root G.
- Your F# is just F#, with the major third (A#) doubled, both below and above the root F#.

If the bass was playing the same bass notes as the guitar, which is not, then these chrods would be called B5aug
and A#5aug(augmented fifth, half step further from the fifh).
