Title: In the Nervous Light of Sunday
Artist: Circle Takes the Square
Album: As the Roots Undo
Tuning: Standard

This tab is designed for only one person to play (IE: no guitar 1 and guitar 2)

Most of the time, I'm just going to post the chords instead of the rhythm, because it's
too difficult
to figure out, but it's quite exhausting to tab out. :) I'll try and make it easy enough 
follow. I've
got some notes that make the tab a bit easier to understand as well. Enjoi!

Intro Riff A

E|---0-----------0---------------------------------------------------------|

G|---0---10/12---0---12--12\10--10\9/10---14-12-10-9-7-5-------------------| PLAY

                                                          PM-----|

Repeat the riff twice, but on the second time, exempt the notes in parenthesis.

A|---3---10--10\-8---8\7/-8---12-10--8-7-5-3---|
E|---0-----------------------------------------|

It's a lot like Intro Riff A, but with a slight modification.


Breakdown Riff A

E|------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------| PLAY
D|---2-2-2--5-4-5--2-2--5-4-5-4-------|  4X
A|---2-2-2---------2-2----------------|
E|---0-0-0---------0-0----------------|
   PM-----|      PM-------------------|

There's a slight variation the fourth time, not hard to figure out at all. Just play the 
bit twice
instead of altering between the two parts.

Intro Riff D

E|---------0-------------------------------------|
B|---------1-------------------------------------|
G|--10/12--0---12--12\10--10\9/10---14-12-10-9---|

A|---8/10--3---10--10\-8---8\7/-8---12-10--8-7-5---|
E|---------0---------------------------------------|

Again, it's similar to Intro Riff A, but not quite identical.


Bridge Riff A

A|---3-------3-------3-------2-2---7---|
E|---------------------------0-0---7---|
                           PM---|

Screw around with pinch harmonics and vibrato on the 9th fret of the D-string after the 
chord if
you want to get the feel the song portrays.

The bridge, as a whole, is fairly straightforward. It can get confusing with all the
in chords and
shifting of fingers, though. Then, it's back to the breakdown! This time, on the fourth
through, don't
play any of the single notes in the second bit.


Interlude Riff A

E|-------------------0-------------------0-----------------0--------------------------|
B|--------10------10----------10-----------------10-----10----------10------10--------|
G|---9h10----10-9----------------9----12-----9------9-9----------------9-------9-10---|

Running out of names for the riffs, hehe. Be careful, the fingering here can be tricky
times. You don’t
have to play it exactly the way it says to here, since it's difficult to tell that it's
unless you're
playing with the song, but the exact notation is all here either way.


Interlude Riff B

E|-------------------------------------|
B|---1---1---5---1---3---3---5---3-----|
G|-----0---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---| PLAY
D|-------------------------------------|  4X
A|-------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------|


Interlude Riff C

E|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|---5---4---5---7---| PLAY
D|---x---x---x---x---|  6X
A|---3---2---3---5---|
E|-------------------|

It's a bit difficult to hear this, as it's so muffled behind the drums, but this is the
I could get to
the original sound. Maybe try a tremolo effect.


Interlude Riff D

E|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|-------7---5---4---| PLAY
D|---2---x---x---x---|  2X
A|---2---5---3---2---|
E|---0---------------|

After this, you’ll play Riff C twice more, then D twice more, then C twice more, then 
to...


Interlude Riff E

E|-------------------------------------|-------------|
B|-------------------------------------|-------------|
G|---7---12-10---9---7-----12-10---9---|---10---12---|
D|---x----x--x---x---x------x--x---x---|----x----x---|
A|---5---10--8---7---5-----10--8---7---|----8---10---|
E|-------------------------------------|-------------|

After this, play Riff C twice more, then Riff E with the separated part, then Riff C 
with the last
note cut off, then Riff D twice, then Riff C once, and then just play 7x5 5x3 and 4x2
times leading
up to the guitar break. It actually speeds up considerably, so keep that in mind.

During the awesome break with the chants of "IN THE NERVOUS LIGHT OF SUNDAY!" just play 
E power
chords and throw in some harmonics (not pinch). I don't have the pedals to figure this
out note for note,
and live they just kind of screw around anyways, so feel free to do the same.


Outro Riff A

E|------0----------0----------0-------10------------0--------------0----------------|
B|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---10---10----10---10----10---10-------10----9-10---10-9-10-9-10---10-9-10-9-10---| PLAY
D|-----------12---------12---------12-------12--------------------------------------|  5X
A|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

On the fifth time, just repeat the last bit over and over.


That's it! I hope you had fun with the tab.

Great tab!
just one minor mistake on bridge riff B

e-----------------|
b-----------------|
g-16-9--11-12--17-|
d-x--x--x--x---x--|
a-14-7--9--10--15-|
E-----------------|


sounds better to me as

e-----------------|
b-----------------|
g-16-9--10-12--17-|
d-x--x--x--x---x--|
a-14-7--8--10--15-|
E-----------------|


And this seems to fit better.
Great tab, either way, 5 stars.
