Subject: TAB: Want by Jawbreaker

This is my best effort at tabbing out this song.
This is also the first tab I ever do, so if there are mistakes, please
feel free to correct it.


by Jawbreaker

This is the opening bass riff, I like playing it on guitar.

D--7-7-7-----------------7slide to-4---------------------------------------|
A---------------7------------------------5-7-0(let ring) then repeat 4x----|

Otherwise, you'd play this while bass plays the riff.
Listen for rythm

A------7--0-|(let ring)

Riff 4x
At end of 4th hit A-----5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-listen for rythm

then (A) power chord
alternate (C#) power chord back to (A)
then  end on (D) power chord

 A            F#              D
Been staring for a hundred hours.
Run down a spiral drain.
 A            F#     D
Keep mouth clamped tight, and it isn't right.
 A            F#                 D
Three words keep running 'round my mind,
But my tongue is hard to find.
    F#            D
I need to let it go, because I know.
 F#            G
Dark secrets burn their vessel.
  A              B
Tearing out to grab a mouthful.
 F#              G
Chunk of heart destroyed by quiet.
  A              B                 G
Yell it out before it kills you now.
Let it all out.

(continues the same, listen to the song, it's a great one anyway!)

Used to let rumors do my work.
They got around real well.
Now they only hurt.
It's a liar's quirk.
This time I gotta say it straight.
I mean to do some good.
I'm calling out your name
While the chance remains.
I want you.

As mentioned earlier, this is my first attempt at tabbing.
Finals are nearing, and I'm at the end of my rope.
This was a nice little break away from studying, hope it helped you out
as much as it did me.

"Do you call this living really?"

Great tune. I think the intro just before the verse ends on E rather than D. Thanks for the transcription though!

Oh, and Let it all out goes to D...

I want you = A

At least this is what I hear. ;-)
