THE VERB - The Swell Season
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: taylor2714


Tuning: Drop D

Verse progression is a changing bass note over a common chord, picking is 16th notes in 
time.


Verse (x4)
  1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a 1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--2-----2---------2-----2---------2-----2---------2-----2------|
D|----0-----0---0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---0|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|3-----3-----3---3-----3-----3---4-----4-----4---4-----4-----4--|

  1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a 1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--2-----2---------2-----2---------2-----2---------2-----2------|
D|----0-----0---0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---0-----0-----0---0|
A|2-----2-----2---0-----0-----0----------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------5-----5-----5---5-----5-----5--|

Verse ends on this chord for one measure:
e|----------|
B|----------|
G|-2--------|
D|-2--------|
A|-0--------|
D|-4--------|

Chorus(x2) Difficult timing to count 16ths, you'll hear it in the song
  1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a 1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------4---4-----4-----4-------4-------5---5-----5-----5-------5|
A|------------5-----------5---5---------------5-------5---5---5--|
D|0---0---------------0-----------5---5--------------------------|
     "I'm tired of fighting..."      "Your words just rattle..."

  1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a 1 e + a 2 e + a 3 e + a 4 e + a
e|---------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------2---2-------2---2-------2-------0---0-------0---0-------0|
A|4---4-------4---4-------4---4----------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------5---5-------5---5-------5---5--|
     "All joy escapes..."            "And I can't make this..."

The second half of the chorus changes the picking a bit, but the notes are the same... 
get a nice upbeat rhythym and it will sound fine.

The break after the chorus uses the first two finger positions of the verse, but with a 
upbeat picking pattern.

This should serve as a good starting point to the song, now you just need a someone like 
to sing it with...

excellent tab but whats going on in the second verse, he stops picking and starts strumming some chord roots are the same as the drop d in the picking but I can't figure it out.. also there is that lick that is something like

e---------------------------------------
B---------------------------------------
G----------------2----------------------
D-------2-4--------4------2-4-2---4-4---
A-2-4-5----2-4-5----2-4-5------5-5---5-5
D---------------------------------------

sorry theres no timing, its the recurring guitar lick during "take the time and walk away from it" or "we're far to pious to get out of it"
