SLOAN - Sugartune
From: Smeared
Tabbed by: Mark Wiebe, rwiebe@mindlink.bc.ca

This song has already been posted by someone else but it's 
totally wrong, so I thought I'd put my own version on. I'm 
glad to see that there are some other Sloan fans out there 
in cyberspace. They were a great band while they lasted. Tell
me if you have any comments, corrections, or suggestions. Thanks.

Tuned down about a half step Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb (It doesn't 
seem like it's quite on the exact pitch, so you might have 
to fool around with you're tuning pegs a bit to match it.)

During A, B, C# part of Fig.1 part the second guitar sometimes 
picks the notes of the chords rather than strumming them.

Verse (Fig.4)

I wrote for you a sugar tune
To help you through what you gotta do
When you're one the ground and keep falling down
remember how I made this sound


Bridge (Fig.2)

Keep playing Fig.2 until the end if the song......sugartune....by sloan

if you don't know sloan, they are (were) a cool Canadian band
that just recently broke up. ):

here's the song sugartune from their first album "smeared" (go buy
it) It's pretty easy, mostly power chords, I don't have some 
parts, so if you like sloan help me out.

For people who have never heard this song before I put in the beat 
values, for the intro atleast.

Play with distortion, I think there's another guitar playing some-
thing but I have no idea what.

                                       or something along those lines....

[Verses]

  D5    D5  C5
I wrote for you,
  A#5   C5
A sugar tune,
A#5      C5               D5    A#5
Help you through what you gotta do.

the same chord progression is played for these lyrics...

When you're one the ground,
And keep falling down,
remember how I made this sound.

[Chorus]

D5  A#5  A#5   
I   know when
D5  C5      D5  C5
everybody's got one,
A#5 A#5  D5  C5
You want one too.

...that's all I have so far, it's the basic song. There's a couple
   fills missing, but there not that hard to figure out...

my first tab, hope you enjoy it.....
