About this tab version
This comes from the acoustic version of the song performed on October 22nd, 2015. Link is in the tab. Tab figured by ear. Was this info helpful? Yes No
Slaughter Beach, Dog – Politics of Grooming tab
Tuning: Eb Standard
No capo
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I got this from the acoustic version here https://youtu.be/LLXauSbznuU?t=20m11s. 

The song's actually a lot simpler than it sounds, just these three chords.
I learned this by ear but it's pretty easy and I'm 99% sure it's accurate.

Chord Progressions
      B          E          F#
Eb|----------|----------|----------|
Bb|--4-------|---5------|---7------|
Gb|-------4--|-------4--|-------4--|
Db|----------|-2---2----|-4---4----|
Ab|-2---2----|----------|----------|
Eb|----------|----------|----------|

You could also play this song in E standard, just subtract one from each of the numbers.

Repeat these chord progressions until the change marked in time with the 
lyrics. For the E progression, I sometimes like to hit a 0 on the low E 
string instead of a 2 on the D string.

Anyway, that's it. Here's the tab.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

[Verse 1]
B
I know the “you” when you are getting dressed
E                                         B
Is not the “you” I've really come to know
F#
She speaks in shorter phrases
E
And she often can't remember
B                            F#           B
Which impulsive words were emitted as response


[Verse 2]
B
But it's not a selfish shorter-spanned attention
           E                            B
Rather preference for the politics of grooming
           F#
Hell, I'd paint my face and fingers
        E       
And my toes and lips and eyelids
       B                              F#
If it meant tonight I didn't have to think about the future
B
Just to fixate my attention on a wooden powder pencil
E
Not a single thought devoted
       B
To whatever's on outside the house
    F#                                  E
Or even past the door to your mother's bathroom

Where we're sitting
        B                        F#        B
And surviving on the steadiness of passing time


[Chorus 1]
B
So when the lines are drawn and all the powders matted
           E                              B
You'll be standing there blinking at your image
F#
And you wished that it would turn around
E
And do what it's supposed to
B                      F#                B
But reflections do not turn themselves away


[Verse 3]
B
When you were younger and your mother started drinking
           E
She would tuck you in and close your bedroom door
           F#
Then one night you sprung awake
           E
Inside a turning twisted dream
         B                                F#             B
And you ran downstairs to find her laying out across the floor


[Verse 4]
B
She did not hear you softly crying near her
E
Or feel your mouth all hot against her ear
F#
So you kissed her like she taught you
            E
And for the first time on the head 
        B                  F#            B
You got up and tucked your own self into bed


[Chorus 2]
B
So when the lines are drawn and all the powders matted
           E                              B
You'll be standing there blinking at your image
F#
And you wished that it would turn around
E
And do what it's supposed to
B                      F#                B
But reflections do not turn themselves away
         F#
Yeah you wished that you would turn around
    E
And do what you're supposed to
B                  F#                  B
But it's easier to blink and stare and stay
