                 Promise Less Or Do More - The Whitest Boy Alive
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jake Whitehead

First ever tab I've attempted, to a pretty simple song. Love the chorus riff and I was sad I couldn't find 
a tab--luckily after some time listening to it over and over I've figured out what seems to be the way 
Erland plays it. Enjoy!

Tuning: Standard (EADGBE)

Guitar doesn't start until chorus, here is the beginning section:

e|-----5----------------------------------5----------------------------------|
B|-----5----------------------------------5----------------------------------|
G|-----5----------------------------------6----------------------------------|
D|-----7----------------------------------7----------------------------------|
A|-----7----------------------------------7----------------------------------|
E|-----5----------------------------------5----------------------------------|

       Am                                 A

e|-----5--------------3---------3---------10---------------------------------|
B|-----5--------------5---------3---------10---------------------------------|
G|-----5--------------5---------4---------10---------------------------------|
D|-----7--------------5---------5---------12---------------------------------|
A|-----7--------------3---------5---------12---------------------------------|
E|-----5--------------3---------3---------10---------------------------------|

       Am             C         G         Dm

e|----10--------------------------------|
B|----10----------8---------------------|
G|-------9-----------------7---9--------|  x3
D|------------7--------9----------------|
A|---------10-------10------------------|
E|--------------------------------------|

e|----10---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|----10----------8----------------------------------------------------------|

A|----7-----------7---3--------------3---7-----------------------------------|
E|----5-----------5---1--------------1---5-----------------------------------|

      Am              F                  Am

e|----5---------------1------------------------------------------------------|
B|----5---------------1------------------0-----------------------------------|
G|----5---------------2------------------5-----------------------------------|
D|----7---------------3------------------7-----------------------------------|
A|----7---------------3------------------7-----------------------------------|
E|----5---------------1------------------------------------------------------|

      Am              F                  Am (hit open b and let it ring)


Guitar stops for a bit again until the next chorus, as noted here:

e|-----5----------------------------------5----------------------------------|
B|-----5----------------------------------5----------------------------------|
G|-----5----------------------------------6----------------------------------|
D|-----7----------------------------------7----------------------------------|
A|-----7----------------------------------7----------------------------------|
E|-----5----------------------------------5----------------------------------|

       Am                                 A

e|-----5--------------3---------3---------10---------------------------------|
B|-----5--------------5---------3---------10---------------------------------|
G|-----5--------------5---------4---------10---------------------------------|
D|-----7--------------5---------5---------12---------------------------------|
A|-----7--------------3---------5---------12---------------------------------|
E|-----5--------------3---------3---------10---------------------------------|

       Am             C         G         Dm


e|----10--------------------------------|
B|----10----------8---------------------|
G|-------9-----------------7---9--------|  x3

A|---------10-------10---------9\-----7------------------9\-----7------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|----10--------------------------------|

G|-------------9----------------7--------------------------------------------|
D|------------------7--------9-----------------------------------------------|
A|---------------10------10---------9\-----7------------------9\-----7-------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The timing on the notes here are slightly different than the previous way it's played. 
Have a listen and you'll see what I mean.

Erland diddles on the D chord here quietly
in what sounds like this.
