Song: Lebanese Blonde
Group: Thievery Corporation
Album: The Mirror Conspiracy (bollocks to the Garden State sndtrk)
Tabbed by: Matt Whiteman

Pay no heed to the lyrics to this song that you will find on Google - whoever
transcribed those must have been deaf or retarded or both.  Here are the real
lyrics, with the tab for the synthesizer at the beginning and the chords. You
could do the bulk of the melody on the G and the D strings instead of going
lower (you'll see what I mean when you listen to it), but I think it sounds
more like the synth using only the G string.  It's not perfect, but it works.

Standard Tuning

Intro:
(repeat 4X; beat enters on number 3. The notes in brackets are very soft, and
probably a different synth track, play 'em if you want, don't if you don't)

    Am
e-----(5)-------------------------------(5)---------------------(5)----(5)--|
B------------(10)-----(10)-------------(5)-----------(10)------(5)----------|
G--2----9h12-9—-7-7h9-7—-4-5-5h7-5-4-5-2------(7h)9-7—---4/5vvv----4-5/-2---|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A—-0--(let ring)------------------------------------------------------------|
E---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Then just the end again once
e------------------------(5)----|
B-------------------------------|
G--2--(7h)9-7—-4/5vvv--4-5/-2---|
D-------------------------------|
A--0--(let ring)----------------|
E-------------------------------|


Pre-chorus: repeat 4X

e--0-0---3—-1--|
B--1-1---0--3--|
G--2-2---0--2--|
D--2-2---0--0--|
A--0-0---2--x--|
E--x-x---3--x--|

Chorus

Am		        Dm
Too low to find my way
Am		C      Am
Too high to wonder why
Am			     Dm
I've touched this place before
Am		   C	 Am
Somewhere in another time
Am		        Dm
Now I can hear the sun
Am		        C		   Am
The clouds drifting through the blinds
Am		  Dm
A half a million thoughts
Am	        C	Am
Are flowing through my mind


The next part sounds like this (but probably isn't)
Let all notes ring, repeat 2X

e----12---10---|
B----10---11---|
G----12---12---|
D----x----x----|
A----x----x----|
E----x----x----|

Then I prefer to do lower chords (repeat this section twice)

   Am  Am Dm        Am  Am Dm Em  Am
e--5---0--1---0-1-3-5---0--1--0---0---|
B--5---1--3--3------5---2--3--0-1-1---|
D--7---2--2---------7---0--2--0---2---|
E--5---2--0---------5---1--0--2---2---|
G--5---0--x---------7---2--x--2---0---|
A--7---x--x---------5---x--x--0---x---|

Verse - Just play soft A chords here and let the bass do the work

A satellite recalled your voice
Sent me round the world again
All the night you've dreamt away
Sent me round my heart again
One touch upon my lips
And all my thoughts are clear
I feel your smoky mist
Up to the stratosphere

Chorus X2 - Lyrics with Synthesized Trumpet blaring, let last chord ring.

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

The rest is just various repetitions of what's here. Due to the fact that there
are too many layers, tabbing every note would be impossible. Guitars don't work
that way.  Deal with it.

Great tab, although you should have mentioned that the opening is on a sitar, because sitar's are awesome!

Its pretty close given the difference in the various instruments used in the original version of this song.
Between the electronic manipulation and different versions of the song, the version used to transcribe this tab, as I play it, I find that just using the guitar as the sole string instrument is sufficient for the everyday guitar player.
Well worth the time it takes to learn it.
Thank you Matt Whiteman.
