"Almost Crimes (Acoustic)"
Written by Broken Social Scene
Performed by Broken Social Scene
Found on: Adventures in Advertising sampler CD

Tabbed by: Dave Tyson
e-mail: ironic_clown@hotmail.com

I decided to tab out the acoustic version of this song, which is found on a sampler
CD that Arts & Crafts puts out, or once put out, called Adventures in Advertising.
The main chords are the exact same in the version found on You Forgot It In People,
so you can translate them to electric guitar quite easily. If you're just playing
this yourself though, it should help. Feel free to e-mail me with questions or
corrections.

Tuning: Standard (E A D G B E)

Chords used:
G:      3-2-0-0-0-3
G/Gb:   2-2-0-0-0-3
C:      x-3-2-0-1-0
Bm:     x-2-4-4-3-2
E:      x-7-9-9-9-7
D:      x-5-7-7-7-5
Faug/G: x-8-7-0-6-0 (Faug/G was the closest chord name I could find to what
they play)

The main riff:

e|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-----|
G|-------4-------4-------4-------4-------4-------4-------4-------4-----|
D|---5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-5-5---5-4-4---4-4-4---4-4-4---4-4-4---4---|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

If you were playing the faster, heavier version it's this:

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

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

Now the song. For the Feist parts, Kevin's lines are in parentheses:

G                      G/Gb

Told you, I want it here longer for you (I've been getting calls now out here)

I waited, I waited, it's late night, she's waiting at home (On their mouths and chest)

So that's it, great song, espcially live, hope I could help y'all.

Great tab, but the first Verse starts with 'You're like a MISSILE KIND" (pay attention and LISTEN), It was confirmed by Kevin Drew.

Where you play x-8-7-0-6-0 I think it sounds more like x-6-5-0-4-0 slide to x-8-7-0-6-0. Excellent tab though.
