About this tab version
John Dwyer is a beast of a human/guitar player. I consider this song to be up there among his best songs from Thee Oh Sees. He often plays in different tunings, likely this one included, but I figured out most of the parts in standard tuning. The solos and flourishes are where this song gets fun. Was this info helpful? Yes No
[Intro]
plucked with lots of delay

Repeat the above section four times. Then mess around on the 10th/12th fret of strings D,G,B and e for little
post-chorus solo. Something along these lines though it's not 100% accurate.

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

D|--------------------------7777----55----10-------|
A|--------------------------7777----55----10-------|

Repeat the above section four times. Then another little solo along in the same 10th-12th fret area 
on D,G,B and e.
