                         GOLDEN TOUCH - Razorlight
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Laurie
Email: rather not say really

Tuning: E A D G B e (standard)

OK, this is the way me and my band play it, and having checked playing along to the 
it's about as correct as I can get!

These are the chords guitar one uses

 C#m A  B G#m G#m* E Emaj7/Eb A/F# B/G# D
e|-4--0--2--4---4---7----x------x----x---5-|
B|-5--2--4--4---4---9----9------2----4---7-|
G|-6--2--4--4---4---9----9------2----4---7-|
D|-6--2--4--6---6---9----9------2----4---7-|
A|-4--0--2--6---x---7----6------x----x---5-|
E|------------------------------2----4-----|

The intro is just guitar one, and makes use of a reduced B chord, so I'll tab out these 
bars, played by guitar one. The chords are played staccato and give a really cool intro!

Guitar 1

e|-------------------|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|
B|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
G|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
D|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
A|-x-x-x-x-4-x-x-x-x-|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-|
E|-------------------|-----------------|

Then you go into the verse, Guitar 2 plays nothing, and using the chord shapes I wrote 
the top, this is the structure

[Verse]

A         G#m               C#m
I know a girl with a golden touch
A          G#m                 C#m
She's got enough she's got too much
E     Emaj7/Eb          C#m
But I know you would'nt mind
A                 G#m*
You could have it all if you wanted
A                 G#m*                 C#m
You could have it all if it matters so much

(play C#m for the bridge between chorus and verse/verse and chorus etc. each time!)

[Chorus]

C#m               B       A              A/F#    B/G#
But then all they know is how to put you down
            C#m                B           A                    A/F#     B/G#
When you're there they're your friend, but then when you're not around
         C#m       B      A                   A/F#    B/G#
They say oh, she's changed, we know what they mean
          C#m                B                        A
Well they mean, they're just jealous, because they'll never do the things
          A/F#                 B/G#  C#m
that they wish that they could do so well

Ok, from now on guitar one can either play the same chords softly for verse 2 and the 
(it changes a bit in verse 3), or you can play an octave for the root of each chord-sounds 
but isn't! It sounds like that's what the band actually play.

Here are the octave chords if you don't know how to play them

 C#m A  B G#m E
e|---------------|
B|-6-----4-----9-|
G|-x-----x-----x-|
D|-4--7--2--6--7-|
A|----x-----x----|
E|----5-----4----|

When I play it I normally play a B octave instead of the G#m, it just sounds cooler! But 
you use sounds fine. (play the normal E one for both E and Emaj7/Eb, and the normal A 
B ones for A/F# and B/G#)

Now for the lead guitar. I'm not sure whether it's a guitar or synthesiser that plays 
the first chorus, but with enough effects you can play it! So during chorus, one, guitar 2 
this:

Guitar 2

[CHORUS 1] (3 and 4 as well)

e|-----9----11----------------9-----------------|
B|---9---------12----12----10---10-----10----12-|
G|-9-----9--------11-----9----------11----13----|  x4
D|----------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|

This is the same as for chorus 3 and 4 except for one difference, when you play it the 
time round in each case, you play this:

e|-----9----14----------------9-----------------|
B|---9---------12----12----10---10-----10----12-|
G|-9-----9--------11-----9----------11----13----|
D|----------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------|

(Bear in mind that after the third chorus is played, you just play the chorus 
4)

Only a very slight difference on tab but all the difference when playing!

These choruses both finish on another version of C#m, which looks like this

e|-12-|  Or, if you prefer, this:  e|--9---|
B|-14-|                            A|--9---|
G|-13-|                            D|--9---|
D|----|                            G|--11--|
A|----|                            B|------|
E|----|                            E|------|

Ok, the lead guitar for verses 2 and 3 looks like this

e|--------------------------|
B|-----5---4-----4-5-(hold)-|
G|---6-------4--------------|
D|-7-----7-----6------------|
A|--------------------------|
E|--------------------------|

e|---------------------------------|
B|---------7-----5-----------------|
G|-----6-----------4-----(hold)----|
D|---7---7---(4)-----(6)-----------|
A|-7-------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|

e|-----0--------0--------0--------0----|
B|---9---9----9---9----9---9--7-5---5--|
G|-9--------8--------6-----------------|
D|-------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|

e|-----------------------5--------7-----12----------9--------|
B|-----7--------9------7---7----9---9-/-14--(hold)--9-(hold)-|
G|---6---6----8---8--6--------8---------13-------------------|
D|-7--------9------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------|

This part is played differently in the last verse, you do this instead

[VERSE 3] This is also where guitar one changes, and plays as follows:

   D        A        C#m        D        A        C#m
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--7-----7--5-----5-------------7-----7--5-----5--5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|
G|----7--------6------6-(hold)-----7--------6------6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
D|------7--------7-------------------7--------7----6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

Ok, for the second chorus, you have to play this

e|--9------11------9------9---11----|----9-----11-----9------5--7-----|
B|--9------12------10-----10--12----|----9-----12-----10-----7--9-----|
G|--9------11------9------11--13----|----9-----11-----9------6--8-----| x2
D|----------------------------------|---------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|---------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------|---------------------------------|

Right, that's everything now but the end, and this is what you play. Guitar one just 
after playing one final C#m after the last chorus, but guitar 2 plays this:

(play quietly, and slow down towards the end)

e|------9------11---14h12--12-----------9-----11-----12---------|
B|------10-----12----------14—(hold)----10----12-----14—(hold)--|
G|------9------11----------13-----------9-----11-----13---------|
D|--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------------|

e|------9------11---14--12--------|
B|------10-----12-------14—(hold)-|
G|------9------11-------13--------|
D|--------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------|

Then the weird violin end comes in, sorry no tab for that!

I hope this isn't too confusing to read, my only defence is that it's the first tab I've written!

It isn't a synthesizer that plays the lead parts... just a semi acoustic with delay and chorus

Try using A Barre Chord (5th Fret - E Shape) Its sounds better and is easier to use
