"MORNINGSTAR" by AFI
from the album "The Art of Drowning"
                                                       tabbed by Isaac Hayward

Hey, I looked at all of the other tabs on Ultimate guitar and I didn't find
one that was quite the way I played it. I hope you can hear the bass in the
soft choruses, it just plucks notes for every bar. Also, I hope you can hear
that in the verses, that the C# chord is not a 5th chord, but rather a C#m
chord without a G# (5th). The same goes with the B chord in the verses (it
is a B with a major 3rd on top of it). Why am I boring you with this? Have
fun playing this great song. I hope you can read it OK, it looks like a bit
of a mess to me.

I suggest using some sort of guitar to play this song, but thats just my
opinion.

Chorus
============================================================================
Another guitar comes in here. I think its a bass guitar, you can hear it
plucking mellow, sustained notes at the start of every chord change.

   F#m    B                C#m
   Am I a star beneath the stairs?
          E              A
   Am I a ghost upon the stage?
             B        
   Am I your anything?

Chorus fill:
NB: Jade plays this fill after the first time through the chorus, the second time...
    I hope you understand that! He plays this after the second verse's first chorus
    (the chorus is played twice after the second verse)

NB: The drums come in and then the guitar slides down. Notice that Jade
waits a second before he slams that first beautiful E major chord down.

Hey, this tab is completely accurate. The other tab sounds pretty good too, but this is how Jade plays it. I have checked it on live videos. Keep up the good work!

Great tab! You just made a slight mistake on the F#m on the last chorus..

You have:

F#m
e:|--2-------2-------|
B:|o-2-------2-------|
G:|--4-------4-------|
D:|--4-------4-------|
A:|o-2-------2-------|
E:|--2-------2-------|

And it should be:

F#m
e:|--2-------2-------|
B:|o-2-------2-------|
G:|--2-------2-------|
D:|--4-------4-------|
A:|o-4-------4-------|
E:|--2-------2-------|
