			     "The Gospel" by the Dandy Warhols
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Six String Samurai
Email: specialcheese@gmail.com

Tuning: Standard

Chords:

Gmaj: 320003
C:    032010
A:    002220
C/G:  332010

What a wonderful song! I'm surprised that nobody's tabbed it yet. To start things off, 
this cool little riff.

Intro Riff

e|-----------------------|
B|----3------------------|
G|-2bu—bd2-0-------------|
D|------------0h2po0-----|
A|-----------------------|
E|--------------------3--|

Intro/Verse Rhythm

The strumming is done in a very loose and lazy style. Listen to the song, the strumming 
is pretty easy if you use this as a template! Also, be sure to emphasize that open e 
changing to the C chord.

	Gmaj	       C         Gmaj

e|-----3-3-------3-0--------0-----------3-3---|
B|-----0-0-------0----------1po0--------0-0---|
G|-----0-0-------0-----0-0--0-----------0-0---|
D|0-0-------0-0--------2-2---------0-0--------|
A|2-2-------2-2--------3-3---------2-2--------|
E|3-3-------3-3--------------------3-3--------|
  d u  d u  d u  d u   d u  u      d u  d u

Now, when you transition to the chorus use the first bit of the intro riff in place of 
Gmaj chord as your turnaround, like so.

e|--------------|
B|----3---------|
G|-2bu-bd2-0----|
D|--------------|
A|--------------|
E|--------------|

Chorus

The strumming is pretty much the same during the chorus (down, up, down up and all) as 
was during the verse. Do the strumming for the A chord twice before going to the C and to 
Gmaj and repeat the progression three times. On the fourth time around, play the A chord
bit and hit a C/G chord. Hold it for a moment and then play the intro riff and go back 
the verse progression.

	A (x2)	   C		Gmaj

e|-------0-0-------0-----0------3------0--|
B|-------2-2-------1-----0------0------0--|
G|-------2-2----0--0--0--0---0--0--0---0--|
D|--2-2---------2-----2------0-----0------|
A|--0-0---------3-----3------2-----2------|
E|---------------------------3-----3------|

And as for the slide guitar during the intro...

The notes that are in brackets are played quietly enough that they're just barely heard. 
sure to slide very slowly as well.

e|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|--10/12------(17)--\---12-----10/12—--(12)/17~---17\12----|
G|-------------(17)--\------12---------------17~---17\------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

After that you mostly just mess around the twelfth and seventeenth frets, picking the b 
g strings and occasionally throwing in the d string as well. Also, if you feel the need 
solo, break out those Emin pentatonics. Have fun!

| bu bend up
| bd bend down
| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| po  pull-off
| ~  vibrato
| +  harmonic
| x  Mute note
