There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
Alright the other version of this is unplayable to me. So I'm tabbing this out because
really simple. First of all, it's clearly in drop D because a low D is in the bass line.
other tabber missed that and it's so important. Although it makes it more difficult to 
it sounds much better. There are still certain things about this song that mystify
but this is as accurate as i can get.

                             Question - Rhett Miller
Tabbed by: Matt Tarabulski
Email: tarabul@rcn.com

CHORDS: (use thumb on 6th string when necessary, which is frequent, denoted by "t")

clarification: notes in parenthesis are the bass note.

    C   C(B) Am Am(G) F  F(E)  F(D)  G   B

As for the little transition runs, they're very simple, so just listen for them in the song.

C   C(B)          Am       Am(G)        F      F(E)      F(D)
She woke from a dream her head was on fire why was he so nervous

C      C(B)          Am  Am(G)            F        F(E)      F(D)
He took her to the park  she crossed her arms and lowered her eye lids

F           G             C         B
Someday somebody's gonna ask you

F           G                   C       B           F
A question that you should say yes to once in your life

Am       F               G           C
Maybe tonight Ive got a question for you

--Same pattern as above throughout this section:

She'd had no idea she started to cry she said in a good way

He took her by the hand walked her back home they took the long way

Someday somebody's gonna ask you

A question that you should say yes to once in your life

Maybe tonight

Ive got a question for you

--back to beginning progression twice and end on C.

Great tab but a little fault...



is actually B flat written as Bb.
Just a little confusing when you play the chorus and it doesnt sound right.
Other than that great job :)

dude, good tab, i know exactly what you mean when talk about the mistery of this song and its tab. i think the main problem is always having to play the C on the B-string. on the other hand you have to play bass Gs on DropD, so that will always be a problem (how could the other guy tab it without dropD?? :))

so what ive done is tune the B-String to a C and that sorts out a lot, because you can simply focus on the bass notes which make the song so great. i just play dropD power chords on the chords G and lower with open G, B (now C) and e strings, its not perfect but it works quite well.

and one more thing: when you play the Bb, play it with a powerchord, too, and then you can do the little two notes just before he sings "a question". its the open d on the 3rd string and the F you play in the power chord anyway.

i hope this makes you enjoy the song even more.
