Song: Queen of Apology
Artist: The Sounds
Tuning: Standard
Tabbed by: chrome4
Thanks to UnsignedRecords for laying the foundation for this tab to happen.


Well, this is my first tab that I have made and well please don’t be too brutal, I spent 
lot of time on it.
The Sounds are my favorite band and this is my all time favourite song.
I have borrowed some of the tabs from the other queen of apologies tab.
The other tab is decent, but it doesn’t have all the riff variations, and
it doesn’t really flow when playing with the actual song.
One of the main things about the way that Felix plays guitar is that he
likes to play basically the same thing but with slight variations, the other
tab oversimplifies this. I also don’t know one of the riff variations
exactly, you’ll see what I mean.  I have had the pleasure of meeting Felix,
the lead guitarist for the sounds, and basically the advice he gave me when
I told him that I was trying to play his stuff is not to worry about playing
everything exactly correct.  By the way, I keyed the riffs in C but my
mixing software said that the song is in C#m.  I think the riffs sound
better in this key, but If you want to play it in C#m just play the B string
on G and vice versa, like the other tab.

Intro
Main Riff.
(0:00 – 0:07)
e|-----------------|---------|---------------|---------------|
B|-6--6--x-6-x-6-6-|-6-6-6-6-|-11-11--11-11--|-6-6--6-6-6-6-6|

Riff (Variation 1)
(0:07 – 0:13)
e|-------------------|---------|---------------|---------------|
B|-6-6--x-6--x--6-6--|-6-6-6-6-|-11-11--11-11--|-6-6--6-6-6-6-6|
G|-5-5--x-5--x--5-5--|-4-4-4-5-|-10-10--10-10—-|-5-5--5-4-4-4-5|
D|-------------------|---------|---------------|---------------|
A|-------------------|---------|---------------|---------------|
E|-------------------|---------|---------------|---------------|

Main Riff
(Very similar to the main riff but it doesn’t have as much emphasis on the
sustain of the first couple of notes)
(0:13 – 0:19)
e|----------------|---------|---------------|---------------|
B|-6--6-x-6-x-6-6-|-6-6-6-6-|-11-11--11-11--|-6-6--6-6-6-6-6|
G|-5--5-x-5-x-5-5-|-4-4-4-5-|-10-10--10-10—-|-5-5--5-4-4-4-5|
D|----------------|---------|---------------|---------------|
A|----------------|---------|---------------|---------------|
E|----------------|---------|---------------|---------------|

Riff (Variation 2)
(There is a significant delay between the C note,(5-6), and F note (10-11)
note which can make this really hard to get the timing, and could screw you
up but just pay attention and you’ll get it. Also note that the latter part
of the riff tries to harmonize with how Maja sings “This will be the death
of me”.)
(0:19 – 0:25)
e|----------------|---------|---------------|--------------|
B|-6-x-6-x-6-6-6--|-6-6-6-6-|-11-11--11-11--|-6--6--6-6----|
G|-5-x-5-x-5-5-5--|-4-4-4-5-|-10-10--10-10—-|-5--5--4-4-5-6|
D|----------------|---------|---------------|--------------|
A|----------------|---------|---------------|--------------|
E|----------------|---------|---------------|--------------|

***Note******Note******Note******Note******Note******Note**
So I realize that harmonizing to the singing can be a little difficult, so
here is how you do it.


 This   will    be  the   death  of  me
B|11-----11-----6----6----6-6----------|
G|10-----10—----5----5----4-4-----5---6|

Riff (Variation 4) I had no idea what the latter part of the riff was, I
tried to slow it down and everything, but it’s really difficult to make out
what to play.

Main Riff
(Very similar to the main riff but it doesn’t have as much emphasis on the
sustain of the first couple of notes, and the timing on the sliding can be
difficult to get.)

Or at the 2:01 instead of playing the guitar part that Felix plays you can
play what Jesper plays on keys/synth.

hey, a couple things:the song is in the key of A (A B C# D E F# G#).and the main riff you have it written as fourths instead of thirds.i knew there were variations, but as you said, too hard to pick each one out
