Tuning: E A# D G B e

Great song, and easy to play! Just tune A up one semitone and then the whole song goes as follows:

e-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-|--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--|
G-|----0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0------|
D-|------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3----|
A#|--4--------4--------0--------0--------------------------0--------0--------|
E-|--------------------------------------3--------3--------------------------|


This goose is cooked, these tongues are tied,
Around the block, an airborne blight,
But looking on the brighter side,
There's far less to which I’d be obliged,

In the meadow where the black breeze blows,
Where underneath the waves, you were most alone,
Can you hear a subtle, aching tone?
Through the water, through the Earth, chill the bones.

Looking on the brighter side,
Looking on the brighter side,
Looking on the brighter side,
Looking on the brighter side

I'm not sure if this actually how the Shins play it, but it's more simplified this way and sounds the same so good work man.

why can you not just play the A string in standard and play everything on that string up a fret?

I think that BrokenShins tab and tuning is correct. If you were to play it with standard tuning it'd look like this:

e-|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B-|--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--|
G-|----0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0--------0------|
D-|------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3--------3----|
A-|--5--------5--------1--------1--------------------------1--------1--------|
E-|--------------------------------------3--------3--------------------------|


which is just awkward as all hell to play. Tuning it up to A# makes this much simpler and more flowing which I think the song requires to sound good.
