Hi there.  Here's some tab for Sloan's excellent song, "Coax Me".  

Too bad they called it quits.  Um anyway, I've tabbed the first rhythm 

guitar which Jay plays throughout the song.  Patrick's part (guitar 2) is 

just chords, and is explained at the end.  There's also a third guitar that 

comes in the bridge and plays chords, doubling Patrick and filling out the 

sound.  Just use the same chords as guitar 2.


GUITAR 1  

--------

Play it clean and let it ring throughout.  It's played entirely in the top 3 

strings.  Sometimes he doubles the high notes, but it's difficult to make 

out when.

GUITAR 2
--------

This is all played with barre chords, and with a lot of palm muting.  I'm not
sure if these are the exact voicings Patrick uses, but close enough.  It
sounds like most of the chords are partial chords (i.e. only 3 or 4 of the
6 strings are actually played), but I'll let you figure out how best to play
them.  Soundwise, you should use the bridge pickup (preferably a humbucker)
with mild distortion.
