                             TEARS OVER BEERS - MODERN BASEBALL
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: jamie mernick
E-mail: mernickjamie@gmail.com

Tuning:STANDARD



I saw Modern Baseball live last weekend, and I fell in love with them in only a
few short days. They opened with Tears Over Beers, so I searched for a tab and found 
mostly chords/tabs that looked
similar to this;

E-------------------------------|-------------------------------|

D-6---------6---------6---------|-6---------6---------6---------|

I found myself annoyed by a syndrome of sorts in my bones


It also turns out that this is how the lead singer plays while he is singing. However,
I was having trouble hitting the notes with my voice, so I wrote a tab that made it
easier to find your correct pitches. This tab also sounds more melodic and pleasing
to the ear- especially if you're playing alone.

I have tabbed the intro, and wrote the chords and lyrics for the rest of the song.
I will refer to the chords by their bass note, as the main notes (G#+C#) do not change
for the majority of the song.

C#  x466xx
D   x566xx
D#  x666xx
F   x866xx
F#  x966xx
F#* 2x66xx -- if you cannot reach this, you can just play x966xx or whatever sounds good 
to you.

She realized if she wants conversation, she's out of luck for three more years

When I moved away from home, 100 miles or so,
  C#     D#         F               F#        F              C#
I knew a change had grown inside my awkwardly long limbs and bones

    C#      D#     F        F#               F            D
But all she has to say is a meat head-themed monologue on why Brad ran away


           C#        D#              F#*
She said, "All I can hope for is for me to get better,
        C#        D#         F#*
because all I can take is no more.
     C#            D#             F            F#
I'll win him back again, we'll be lovers, best friends.

He won't need no other woman like he did way back when he was with me.


   C#     D#        F#*
He needed more than me

I'm friendly and thoughtful and quite awfully pretty,

When I felt that I should leave, we'll call it midnight or so,
  C#      D#    F           F#          F            C#
I found myself annoyed by a syndrome of sorts in her bones

That girl who's next to me, she don't know her worth in this town,
            C#             D#              F           F#
because her face starts to shine when that meat head behind me
   F                D            C#
Is grinning as he's checking her out


          C#       D#              F#*
I said, "All I can hope for is for you to get better,
        C#        D#         F#*
Because all I can take is no more.
     C#           D#             F            F#
I'll hide where I can, away from you and your friends,
        F          D           C#
leaking tears over beers once again."


Thanks, please email me for suggestions/any notes I should take for future tabs, seeing 
as this was my first guitar tab.

This isn't right at all, at least the base notes aren't. It sounds good on it's own, but it's not how it's played in the song.. still worth learning though

Also the difficulty should be beginner, not intermediate

I find it to be much easier if you tune down to Drop Db and moving everything up one fret. So, instead of stretching to hit F#* as 2x66xx you can play it as 5x77xx. They use this tuning in many of their songs. This is a good tab either way though.
