This is a hilarious song about the real truth why guys learn how to play the
guitar. And let's face it. We have all played the part as "the guitar guy at
the party" on more than one occasion. Mike Birbiglia claims that he's only 
using three chords for this song, but after seeing his Comedy Central
half-hour special, I counted about five chords. If you want to see the
special that this tab is refering to it's:


And, as always, if you have any troubles with the tab, just listen to the
song or watch the video that I have given you and it should give you some
help on when he strums and lets the chords ring out. This tab may or may not
be exactly right do to the constantly moving camera, but this tab should give
a good outline of what you're trying to shoot for. And please rate and comment
this tab when you have made your final judgement.



Verse 1:

C       Fadd9      Am7    C 
I'm the guitar guy at the party

Fadd9   C                Am7                Fadd9
I'm the guitar guy and I think I'll drink a Coke and Bacardi

C                      Fadd9 
It might seem like i'm just havin' fun but I'm

C                           Fadd9
actually not, i'm trying to sleep with your girlfriend

C                 Fadd9
Listen to me as I play this song 'cause I'm

Am7             C
gonna play it regardless

Verse 2:

Gsus4    C
I'm only playin' three chords so
Fadd9      C
I can make eye contact

Fadd9          C
with different women in the room

Am7               C
I'm gonna try and sleep with your girlfriend

Fadd9                 C 
But i'm gonna make it sound like we have a really

Fadd9                      C
special bond and we should keep it secret

Spoken Verse:

Am7                   C                              Fadd9
You know i think your boyfriend really takes you for granted
Am7                       C                                 Fadd9
When was the last time he told you that your eyes look like space crystals?
Am7                                         C     Fadd9
If you wanna come by my place later it'd be cool, it's not gonna be like
     C     Am7                           C
last time. I totally understand why that freaked you out.

Verse 3:

Gsus4      C
Maybe if I play 'Free Fallin'' then 

Fadd9                  C
someone will give me a handjob

Fadd9                 C 
Or maybe they'll just sit on my lap and the
Fadd9                     C
friction will cause me to have an erection

Fadd9       C                        Fadd9           C
an erection I'll make sure you won't feel 'cause i'm classy

Fadd9         C 
and I'm gonna shift it to the left

Fadd9         C
and I'm gonna shift it to the right

Fadd9                         C
and I'm gonna create a mental image in my head like 

Fadd9          C
guys in prison taking a group shower

Verse 4:

Am7       C                Fadd9                           C
Here's my story. I'm gonna make sure that I tell it in the proper order

Fadd9     C                        Am7        C
I went to arts camp as a kid and I played the recorder.

Fadd9               C                 Fadd9      C
Then I learned that recorders are for losers and guitars get chicks and

Fadd9      C                   Fadd9                   C
now when I feel like a loser I take this out and sing 'Wonderwall' by Oasis

Verse 5:

C             Fadd9
I play mostly covers, 

C                                 Fadd9
Cat Stevens and the Beatles and a couple of others

Am7  C                                                 Fadd9 
I do some original songs too but they're not as well received...
 G         C    G         C
"Christ is God, Christ is God"


Am7   C
But I still want that handjob 

Fadd9          C
'Cause I'm the guitar guy
I'm the guitar guy, 
I'm the guitar guy, 
Fadd9              G   C
I'm the guitar GUY-I-I-I.
