Real Estate - "Green Aisles"
from 'Days' (2011)
by Courtney/Real Estate

[INFO]
There's already a tab up for the chords, which I used to use to play along to this song, 
but being only three chords, I got a bit bored eventually and decided to make this.

There are MANY layers of guitar, I will do my best to tab as many as I can hear and 
label each separately and accurately, in addition to providing rhythm chords beneath the tab.


[Intro]
GUITAR ONE:
    F
e|------------------------------------------|
B|----1---1----1---1----1---1----1---1------|
G|------2--------0--------2--------0--------|  REPEAT till 1:03, etc.
D|--3--------0--------3--------0------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

During breaks similar to 1:03, play this instead:
e|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0------------------|
B|--3--3--3--3--3--3--3--3------------------|
G|--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4------------------|
D|--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5------------------|
A|--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

GUITAR TWO:
e|--------0----------1--0---------0---------|
B|----1-----1---1-----------2h3-------------|
G|--2---2-----2---2---2---2-----2-----------|  REPEAT till 1:03, etc.
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

During breaks similar to 1:03, play this instead:
e|----0---0---0---0-------------------------|
B|--3---3---3---3---3/1---------------------|
G|------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------|

G|--9------9-------------------7-5-7-5-5/9--|  repeat this line 3 times
D|------------------------------------------|

E|------------------------------------------|

e|-----------------8---------5--5--5--5-----|
B|-----10-----5/8-----8--5------------------|
G|--9------9--------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------|

GUITAR FOUR (Slide):

G|------------------------------------------5/7----7\5----|
D|--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|
  Mountains of maple leaves standing side by side

e|--------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------5/7-----9\5---|
D|--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|
  The phones lines, the street lights led me to you

e|--------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------5/7-----9\7---|
D|--------------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------------------------------------------|

e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------|

D|---------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------|
  Our careless lifestyle, it was not so unwise, no

Ok, well that's it. A nice song, a bit harder to tab than I thought it would be. 
Considering the layering, there's a high chance of me missing or inaccurately tabbing a bit 
here and there, but nothing sounds bad in this to me.

If there are any obvious mistakes feel free to comment. I hope not.

Anyway, this is one of my favorite albums of all time. Have fun. -Andrew.

Just realized there was another tab of Green Aisles. :P Mind if I update the main F chord arp. thing in my tab with your version of it and give credit to you? Also great job deciphering the slide in the background.

Of course! Feel free.

Thanks. You start to learn to appreciate the songs a bit more once you tab them and realize how much there actually is going on beneath the surface. That slide section is one of those things that it takes a few listens to pick out.
