Artist: The All-American Rejects
Song: Another Heart Calls
Tabbed By: AJ Jeup

This tab was made to sound good on a solo acoustic guitar. If you have a second
guitarist, there are plenty of extra things they can do, and those instances are
noted. I've made a lot of notes regarding style (crescendo here, staccato here, etc.),
as a guide for how I play it. Feel free to look at the notes for guidance or
disregard them.

Enjoy this beautiful song, and sing it with somebody special.

-AJ Jeup

Tuning: True Drop C (Tune the low E string all the way down to a C: eBGDAC).

Chords Used:
      D/F#        F (OR)       C
  e ---X--------5-(1)--------X---|
  B ---3--------6-(1)--------1---|
  G ---2--------5-(2)--------0---|
  D ---0--------7-(3)--------2---|
  A ---0--------8-(3)--------3---|
  C ---2--------5-(X)--------0---|

If you're uncomfortable with that style of F, you can just do 11233X and
it will sound good enough. It just won't sound quite as full as 565785.

Legend:
h = Hammer On
p = Pull Off
/ = Slide Up
\ = Slide Down
~ = Let the note ring out
X = Mute the string entirely.
. = Palm Mute
- = Staccato [Hit the chord, then immediately mute it]

     Find a strum pattern that works for you.

*Remember, any time you see an F in the song, you can switch to the more regular version.
*If you have a rapid strum pattern, it might be best to use 11233X to minimize movement
     along the fretboard.
