Tabbed by: Jason Paszek (Autopoietic Boy)
Email: J.W.Paszek.Guitar.Instruction@gmail.com

Tuning: EADGBE (Standard)


There are some quality tabs for this song here, but I found a lot of
critical mistakes so I spent some time with it making sure to get every
note in as it should be.  I've noticed a few errors in the chord progressions
and also the layered and more complex sounding parts are often kind of
skimmed over.  I tabbed it out so that everything can be done on one guitar.
I didn't look at the others until after I tabbed it out and while there are
similarities, I've taken the time to create a tab for the person who wants
to play the song as faithfully as possible to the sound on the album.

This isn't really in the right time signature the whole time but the notes are right

Sorry, the chords are wrong in some places. You wrote G5 - it can't be, because you say it's G C and G. G5 is made of G and its fifth, so D.
And G7 is wrong as well in two places. (323001) - it's lacking of D and further you wrote (32003x) - it's just clear G major chord.

The other part is okay, I guess. It may be interesting transposition into acoustic guitar.
