From: "Michael A. Mazur" 
Subject: TAB: Counting Crows, "Millers Angels"

Tab: "Miller's Angels" Counting Crows
Transcribed by Michael A. Mazur (mmazur@wpi.edu)

Guitar 1 is an acoustic, tuned down 1/2 step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
Guitar 2 is an electric, tuned down 1/2 step 
Guitar 3 is an octave mandolin, tuned down 1/2 (Gb Db Ab Eb)
Guitar 4 is a pedal steel

Note: All chords given are SOUNDING chords, not fretted chords

Note: Fills are numbered according to which guitar plays them;
I.E. Fill 2C is the third fill played by guitar 2

Note: Except for the bridge, both guitars 1 & 2 are playing very
intermittently, so their parts have all been labeled as fills.
Occasionally, during the choruses, guitar 1 strums the chords (1/2
step higher), but otherwise, everything is as notated. The mandolin
is only played during the bridge, and is tabbed for a mandolin, not
arranged for guitar. Lastly, there is a pedal steel, guitar 4, 
which plays mostly chords and chord tones throughout the song. I 
have not tabbed it's part out.

Verse: (Band tacet, chords played by piano, bass)

Gm       Bb        F
Miller's angels in black and white
Welcome everyone in
Children dreaming of wrong and right
Wrapped in grace and in sin

Chorus: (Pedal steel enters)

Cm        Bb         Ebsus2
They come out of the blue sky
                          * (w/ Fill 2A)
They come out of the blue
                         * (w/ Fill 1A)
They come out of the blue sky
              Gm * (w/ Fill 2B)        C
But you never know where they're gonna go
Eb  F   Gm * (w/ Fill 2C)
Hey Romeo
