About this tab version
Hey guys. Here is an alternative version of "The mute" by radical face. Versions 1 and 2 of the tab/chords require a capo on the 6th or 7th fret. The version below does not require, necessarily, the capo, as you can achieve the same effect tuning your guitar half a tone up. That means, you can choose either to fit the capo on the first fret of your guitar or just tune it half a way up. Hope you like it. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Edit: I haven't noticed, but it turns out @uncleDarren commented some time ago, on version 1, a very similar 
way of playing the song. Well, now we have it tabbed!

Hey guys! Here is a different version of "The mute" by radical face. 
Versions 1 and 2 of the tab/chords require a capo on the 6th or 7th fret. The version below does not
require, necessarily, the capo, as you can achieve the same effect tuning your guitar half a tone up. That
means, you can choose either to fit the capo on the first fret of your guitar or just tune it half a way up.

Tabbed it by ear, so pardon any possible mistakes. Overall, I thought it sounded nice and wanted to share it
with you guys.

No more jibber jabbing, here goes! Hope you like it.

C chord variation: When going from C to Am, I found that this progression really felt right and sounded
like what happens in the song (It can be used in any of te C - Am "pairs"):

        C  C      Bm9  Bm9     Am
e|------0--0--------0--0--------0------|
B|------1--1--------1--1--------1------|
G|------0--0--------0--0--------2------|
D|------2--2--------0--0--------2------|
A|--3---3--3----2---2--2----0---0------|
E|-------------------------------------|

Note: I recommend you play the whole song without a pick, just strumming with your hands/nails. It makes thigs
a whole lot easier after you practice a little. I say that because of the strumming pattern of the tabbing 
above. I do it hitting the A string notes with my index finger and then down and up with the strumming. 
But of course, suite yourselves to play it the way you feel confortable.


[Intro] 

C  C11  C  Am  E11  G9 (2x)  C


[Verse 1]

Am                        F               C
Well, as a child I mostly spoke inside my head
Am                           F                 C
I had conversations with the clouds, the dogs, the dead
Am                                  F                 C
And they thought my broken, that my tongue was coated lead
           G                F                   Am
But I just couldn't make my words make sense to them
            G                F                   C     C11  C
If you only listen with your ears... I can't get in

Am                              F                C
And I spent my evenings pullin' stars out of the sky
Am                          F                  C
And I'd arrange them on the lawn where I would lie
Am                            F                 C
And in the wind I'd taste the dreams of distant lives
            G               F                   Am
And I would dress myself up in them through the night
         G                    F                           C    C11  C
While my folks would sleep in separate beds... and wonder why


[Chorus]

Am F C

G  F Am

[Verse 2]

Am                            F             C
And through them days I was a ghost atop my chair
Am                     F               C
My dad considered me a cross he had to bear
Am                      F             C
And in my head I'd sing apologies and stare
      G                  F                  Am
As my mom would hang the clothes across the line
              G               F                 C    C11  C
And she would try to keep the empty... from her eyes

Am                       F              C
So, then one afternoon I dressed myself alone
Am                          F            C
I packed my pillowcase with everything I owned
Am                     F                    C
And in my head I said "goodbye," then I was gone
      G              F            Am
And I set out on the heels of the unknown
      G                  F                 Am
So my folks could have a new life of their own
        G             F      
So that maybe I could find someone
          G             F              C    C11  C
Who could hear the only words that I'd known 


[Chorus]

Am F C 
Am F C 
Am F C 
Am F C 
Am F C 
Am F C 
Am F C 
G  F Am
G  F G
