David Bazan: Fewer Broken Pieces (acoustic)
Tabbed by: Steve White (stevimus@gmail.com)

Capo: 3rd fret

G#dim7:    4-x-3-4-x-1--|
Fmaj7/c:   1-3-3-2-1-0--| (play the bass note w/ your thumb. He slightly embellishes it 
pulling off and on with his first and second finger)


C/G             F                Am                Em
If you make a reference to some trouble, that you know
F                G                  C/G
Can it help you keep it under control?
E                  Am         Em
Or should I really re---consider
   F                  C/G
My reasons for going solo
Dm                  Em              G
David byrne on Bob Costas, puts it pretty well
But I put it better

Am      C/G      Fmaj7/C
I still run the show
      C/G     G
Don't you forget it
     Am     C/G      Fmaj7/C   F
So I had to let some go
      C/G          G
Don't think I don't regret it
        Am  C/G  Fmaj7/C         C          G
Cause I do and I don't think I'm better off alone


E|:-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-| x2

 F                       G
Man I could have, had a, big sound
 F                       G          G#dim7
But I love to, let my, friends down

Fmaj7/C      C/G           Dm   Em   Am
Fmaj7/C      C/G           Dm   Em   G

Fmaj7/C      C/G         Dm    Em    Am
Fewer moving parts means fewer broken pieces
     Fmaj7/C     C/G       Dm     Em       G
When every other start requires a brand new theosis
Fmaj7/C         C/G              G#dim7
One good friend remarks with a rightfully angry:
 Am    C/G   Fmaj7/C                  C/G
"Jesus dude! None of us know what to do with you"
         Dm             Em
To which I in my pride responded
"I've got news for you:
None of you have to, cause"

Back to the chorus
through the interlude, end on C/g.

Agreed, G#dim7 is impossible. I just open G and slide it up one fret to get an awful sounding off chord.

I find the following to make sense for the G#dim7.


You can also omit the 2nd string, but it sounds less "full". I can't do the G#dim7 in this tab as it is, and when I sound out each note I find it doesn't mesh with the song itself.

On an unrelated note: 4 years since an update? It's a shame UG doesn't care about good web design and appropriately marketing the utility of a site. I use it all the time for tabs that have been posted almost years ago. Oh well. I miss the glory days of tabcrawler.
