A More Perfect Union - Titus Andronicus

The rhythm guitar mostly does different variations of these 3 chords:
(writing them all down would be redundant...just listen to the song for reference.)

E|-----------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------|
D|-------10-------7-------3----------------|
A|-------10-------7-------3----------------|
E|-------8--------5-------5----------------|




The lead guitar is much more complicated:

(Part 1)
The first part comes around "cuz tramps like us, baby we were born to die!"

E|------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------|
G|---12--15-15--12--15--12--15--12----------------------|
D|----------------------------------15--15--15----------| x2
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|

E|------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------|
G|---12--15-15--12--15--12--15--12----------------------|
D|----------------------------------15--15--15--12--9-9-|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|

E|------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----9-12---12-12-12-12-9-----------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|

Then rinse and repeat as needed. Again, listen to the song for reference. On the last 
one...he holds that last 9 for a long time, then holds the 12 for a long time, then plays 
the 12 again but bending it. Like thissss:

E|------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----9~~~~~-----12~~~~~~----12(bend)------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------|

(Part 2)
Comes directly after Part 1 (I just broke it up to make it nice and easy!)
E|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---------------------|
D|---12--15-15-15------| x4
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|

E|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---12--15-15-15------|
D|---------------------| x4
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|

Repeat those once, then move on to this:

E|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---------------------|
D|---17--14-14-14------| x4
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|

E|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---17--14-14-14------|
D|---------------------| x4
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|

Aaaand finish that part with this:
E|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---17-14-17-14-17~~~-|
D|---------------------| x4
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|

(Part 3)
Comes directly after Part 2...this is a bit more complicated though...
E|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------12----12----12-14---------------------------------|
D|---14-----------14-------12-----14--14--14--12--12/9-----|
A|-----------------------------------------------------12--|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------|
G|----12--12--12----12----12(bend)-------------------------|
D|---------------14----14----------14~~~~~~~~~~~~----------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------|

Repeat those again.

(Part 4)
E|---------------------------------------------|
B|-------------5~~~---5--5---------------------|
G|-----------5-------------7-5-----------------|
D|-----5---7-------------------7~~~~-----------|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

E|---------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------12-12-12------|
G|-----7--7--7-5-7-9---7-----11-----------11---|
D|-----------------------9---------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

Then the song slows down a little...

E|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|-----7--7--7-5-7-9---7-----------------------|
D|-----------------------9/10~~~~~-------------|
A|---------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------|

(Part 5)
Very long solo...you can just play rhythm over this. Once it's over, play Part 1, then 
move on to Part 6!

(Part 6)
Ends like this:

E|---------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------|
G|-------------12~~~~~--12~~~~~~~~-|
D|---9~~~~~~-----------------------|
A|---------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------|

And that's all! If you know this, you know the majority of the song!
