START THE MACHINE (Acoustic Interpretation)
by Angels and Airwaves
Tabbed by: The Count of Monte Cristo
Tuning: Standard (Key of E)

INTRODUCTION: This interpretation of the 'tinker-toy/xylophone'
intro has kind of a classical feel.  It sounds best when plucked.
The intro is based around an E chord.

e|-------------------------------------|
B|-9-7-------------9-7-----------------|
G|-----9-8-9-----------9-8-9-----------|
D|-------------9---------------7-------|
A|-7---------------7-------------------|
E|-----------0---0-----------0---0-----|

The second part of the intro can be strummed, but the
root strings are focused on.  Listen to the song so 
you can consolidate the tab and the rhythm.


e|-0~~~-----0~~~----0~~~-0~~~--|
B|-0~~~-----0~~~----0~~~-0~~~--|
G|-9~~~-----9~~~----9~~~-9~~~--|
D|-9~~~9----9~~~9---9~~~-9~~~--|
A|-7~~~7-6--9~~~9-6-X~~~-X~~~--|
E|-0~~~-----X-------9~~~-7~~~--|


Here are the chords used in the rest of the song:

    E      A2    C#m    Bsus   Eb
e|--0--  --0--  --0--  --0--  --0--  
B|--0--  --0--  --0--  --0--  --0--  
G|--9--  --2--  --6--  --4--  --9--  
D|--9--  --2--  --6--  --4--  --9--  
A|--7--  --0--  --4--  --2--  --6--  
E|--0--  --X--  --X--  --X--  --X--  

VERSE 1:

E                             Eb
  The ash set in, then blew away,
C#m                          A2      Bsus
  It's getting lost into the sea.
E                            Bsus
  I grew so close to all the thoughts I had
(Bsus)
To leave forever,
C#m                              A2
  I left the chill and voice of screams of kids
    Bsus
And ran for shelter.

(same for verse 2)

CHORUS:

E
  You know I won't say sorry,
Eb
  You know I won't say sorry.
C#m
  The pain has a bad reaction,
A2           Bsus
  A blend of fear and passion.
E                              Bsus
  You know what it's like to believe,
(Bsus)                       E
It makes me want to scream.


BRIDGE:
E
  I see the stars, they're in your eyes,
  A2                      Bsus
A playful kiss, can't you tell I'm excited?
   E
A fast escape in the nick of time,
     A                    Bsus
You lost your wish, can I help you to find it?
    E
I'm on my knees, just one to start,
    A                       Bsus
A fresh new start, don't be undecided,
    E
If love's the word that you say,
     Bsus
Then say it - I will listen.
    E
If love's the word that you say,
     Bsus
Then say it - I will listen.


That's about it.  Hope you kind of get the feel for it.

It's not great but it's not bad at all

Also the tab of the intro is nice thanks for it :)

Thanks, man. I think I screwed up the bridge. Pretty much every time there is an E, there should be a C#m instead.
