                Pullin' a Cloud - Tears For Fears
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: E-F#-B-E-G#-C# and capo 3rd fret

Tears For Fears
Pullin' a Cloud (2004)
(Gail Dorsey/Brian McLeod/Roland Orzabal)
From: "Everybody Loves A Happy Ending" [Bonus Track]


For this song, tune down the five upper strings (i.e. all except for 
the 6th, the lower E-string) down 3 semi-tones. To match the key on the 
recording, put on a capo on the 3rd fret to make the strings sound
G-A-D-G-B-e. 
Alternatively, one might just tune up the 6th string up 3 semi-tones to G, 
but that may break the string, so option 1 is definitely recommended.


---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tuning: E-F#-B-E-G#-C# and capo 3rd fret which makes the strings sound
        G-A-D-G-B-e

Thanks for posting! It's rare that the only tab posted for a song sounds great, and you nailed it! Just a suggestion: If you don't want to take your chances on tuning the low E up to G, you could play the G in the intro with your thumb on the 3rd fret. I don't know how Roland plays it, but I think this would be a little easier (and safer!). Applying this change to the other sections shouldn't be difficult as most of the notes fretted on the low G in this tab can be played on the A string.
Cheers!
