Capo
3rd fret
I play it with capo 3 instead, which have the following chord translations:
D# = C
Cm = Am
G# = F
A# = G

This also allows me to do the picking instead if I want it to sound like the original 
instead of just chords.  Using open chords on capo 3, I just pick A and D strings back and 
forth for the C and the Am and the E and A strings for the F (barred) and G.

Something like this:
D|---5---5---5---5---5--|
A|-6---6---6---6---6----|
E|----------------------| ...continue until chord change

D|---5---5---5---5---5--|
A|-3---3---3---3---3----|
E|----------------------| ...continue

D|----------------------|
A|---6---6---6---6---6--|
E|-4---4---4---4---4----| ...continue

D|----------------------|
E|---5---5---5---5---5--|
E|-6---6---6---6---6----| ...continue



I did this fast, so please let me know if I typed it up wrong.  And sorry for the lack 
of apostrophes--UG does not like them.

The Precipice by The Classic Crime
From Phoenix
----------------------------------

Verse 1:

D#
I wish I could play the violin
    Cm
Id play til tears rolled down your cheek and chin
    G#
And if you sang along
A#                         D#
We could write the saddest song


Verse 2:

D#
Sometimes I indulge my every whim
    Cm
And piece-by-piece I build the cell Im in
      G#
But I only stay here long
  A#                        D#
enough to write the saddest song


Chorus:

           Cm                     D#
I dreamt I stood on a hill that I wished was a mountain
   Cm                            D#
To look back on all my accomplishments
          Cm                             D#
Well they must have been small because I couldnt seem to find them
     G#              A#           D#
so I took a leap off of the precipice


Verse 3:

D#
I wish I could play piano well
   Cm
Id hit the keys that make your spirit swell
    G#
And if you sang along
A#                         D#
We could write the saddest song



*Repeat Chorus*



Bridge:

D#
Whatever the cost

Whether it works out or not
Cm
Whatever the cost

Whether it works out or not
G#
Ill follow you
            A#          D#
Ill follow you with my heart


*Repeat Bridge*


*Chorus is repeated here a cappella.  I like to do one strum per chord here instead.*

dude. well done. matt told me that most of the bands songs, they tune their guitars to Eb. so if you do that the chords are E, C#m, A, and B. the A chord is then play with the A string open and the B Chord on the 2nd fret of the String. same barre chord pattern for both those chords for the picking!

The picking sounds spot on, nice job! It sounds way better with the capo'ed chords, you should change it so it just shows those ones. :)
