                             PLAYHOUSES - TV On the Radio
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: In Effigy

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

Most of what you hear on TV On the Radio records comes from MPC's, synths and
Dave's strange recording techniques. I'm trying my best to translate what they
do on the record onto regular ol' electric guitar. They do it better than I do 
(if you've ever seen them live, you know what I'm talking about), so bare with 
me.

Intro/Interlude Chords

E      F#

e|---| e|---|
B|---| B|---|
G|---| G|---|
D|---| D|-4-|
A|-2-| A|-4-|
E|-0-| E|-2-|    

**************************************************************************
For this riff, just crank the distortion and play these notes as fast as *
you can.                                                                 *

  "so for whoooooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO..."


**************************************************************************
For this riff, you play the same thing as Riff 1 , except you add in the *
B string on the same fret. Crank up the reverb and pick these really     *
fast to get the desired sound. I like to play them with my middle finger *
on the E and my ring finger on the B. Here's an example of the chords.   *

**************************************************************************
Note: These intro/interlude chords sound best if you pick them rapidly.  *
      Although, you could just strum them and let them sustain. Either   *
      way is fine, it's entirely up to you.                              *

E (00:00 - 00:05)

F#         E
 Playhouses
F#                      E   
 Swept away by the river now
F#         E  
 Confounded
F#            
 Sound it out now


(No guitar 00:32 - 00:46)

Vodka cran in your hand 
and whose little girl are you now
Oh i'd ask for this dance 
but i know you'd play like you don't know how [RIFF 1 BEGIN]

What your coy smile exposes
A recent memory of when we shit our bed of roses

And i know the moon above is shining down
But not for our love
so for who?

[RIFF 2 BEGIN]

so for who?

[RIFF 3 BEGIN]

Beneath the cigarettes and sugar shit of alcohol breath
i can taste the ocean on your tounge
Remember when we sat on the sidewalk of your old block
Against the wall under the stars
Talking about love's meaning
Well, i wasn't dreaming

I meant every word 
Just didn't know your demons

[RIFF 2 BEGIN]
 
Do you know mine, babe?
Are we wasting time, babe?

[RIFF 2 END]

E

F#         E
 Playhouses
F#          E
 Haunted by 
F#             E
 Broken spirits 
F#                     E
 Just trying to get high

[RIFF 3 BEGIN]

Well we chose the course but
The weather changed
and the river froze
And when it thawed it was running
Backwards and dry now
I suppose it's appropriate to cry now

Over wasted time
And naked lies
Still get wasted sometime

[RIFF 4]

End with feedback/bends/reverb on the F# chord described in Riff 3.
