Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
ARTIST: The Districts
SONG: Lyla
ALBUM: Live performances on YouTube

GENERAL NOTES: The rhythm guitar has a capo on the 2nd fret. I tabbed this without a capo. With a capo, the 
chords are the same, but the shapes will be different. Please consult a guitar codex for the right shapes.

The same chords are played throughout the song. The main variation is in the strumming pattern.

The guitarist also occasionally reaches the G chord by playing a g# note. I've marked some places where he 
does that below.

Little riff:

e|-------2--0------|
B|-----3------3----|
G|-2h4----------2--|
D|-----------------|
A|-----------------|
E|-----------------|

NOTE: In at least one version, the guitarist only plays this once. I think it sounds good at the end of any 
of the verses.

Main riff (played with a slide):

e|--------10/5----------------|
B|-----7--------7~~--7/10--10-|
G|-4/7------------------------|
D|----------------------------|
A|----------------------------|
E|----------------------------|

Play the above riff several times, then end on this:

e|--------10/5----------------------|
B|-----7--------7~~--0-0---2/7~~----|
G|-4/7---------------0-0---2/7~~----|
D|----------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------|
E|------------------------------10/-|

NOTE: This is an approximation. The lead plays something close to this with variations.

-------------------------------------------------

Intro: D

NOTES: The guitarist plays hammer-ons and pull-offs while holding the D chord.

[Hit a staccato D and stop playing]

Verse 1:
             A     G
Good morning Lyla
                       D
The flowers bloomed months ago
     D                A                      G        D
And now the branches hang with autumn's fire
             A         G
I wake each morning
                D
To feel this ground's gone frozen beneath me-
                       A                      G        D
I dreamed away these months 'til you were gone
D                   A
And I found myself waking
                 G                        D
Curled up in my arms with a cigarette in hand
                         A                G   Little riff    D
And the hopes that we held were in my pocket


Chorus:

[Main riff plays continually through chorus]

         A
Will we ever be
  G                     D
What this world was to you and me?
         A        G                   D
Will we ever be crying for these days?
         A        G                       D
Will we ever be what this heart held for you and me?
         A           G    D
Will we ever be the same?


Verse 2:
                        A              G#  G
And I heard you'd been hanging around
                            D
Those city boys learned to dance so well
                        A
It breaks my heart, it gives me hell
                G                       D
I'll go to the meadow where we used to lay
                 A#  A
But I still wade into that stream
     G                      D
The frozen damn water, it tears at me
                  D            A                                 G                  D
But it makes me feel like I'm fighting to breathe and it's only then I'm scared of dying
  D                       A                  G                        D
It's only when I see you turn to go that I know I need your love to stay


Chorus
         A
Will we ever be
  G                     D
What this world was to you and me?
         A        G                   D
Will we ever be crying for these days?
         A        G                       D
Will we ever be what this heart held for you and me?
         A           G    D
Will we ever be the same?



Solo (4 measures of the same chords as the verse/chorus)


Outro (about 8 measures of the same chords as the verse/chorus)


Verse 3:
                              A                             G#   G                   D
But it makes me feel like I'm fighting to breathe and it's only then I'm scared of dying
                          A                  G                           D
It's only when I see you turn to go that I know I need your love to stay
