Song: Great Romances of the 20th Century

Its really important that you listen to the song while looking 
at this tab in order to really understand where everything goes.
The tab is laid out in order, from beginning to the end.  This tab is
totally accurate for the song aside from small little things the 
guitarists might be doing.  Ive arranged it for one guitar cause thats how
my band covers it.  The little background portion in the intro is played
by the bass on the g-string.
(#)=Number of times to play the chord

CHords Used

  G#  F#  F#/A#  B  Em  G#m7  
e-------------------------4--
b-------------------------4--
g----------------4--------4--
d-6--4----4------4--2-----4--
a-6--4----x------2--2-----6--
E-4--2----6---------0-----4--


Intro x4
   B(hold the bmajor form II barre for the whole intro)
e---------------------------------------------
b--------------4---------------4--------------
g----4-4-----4--4-4---4-4----------4----------
d---4-4-4-4-4-4--4---4-4-4--4-4-4-4-4---------
a--2-----2------------------------------------
E----------0--------2------2-4---2------------



Verse

G#(8)---Em(8)---B(8)---F#(8)

Bridge thingy
G#7             B
e------------------------------------------
b----------------------4-------------------
g-------4----------4-----4------4---4------
d---4-----4----------4-----4------4---4--4-
a-----6-----6-----------------2----------4-
E-4--------------0-----------------------2-

B(1)-F#/A#(1)(quick change from B to this)--G#(8)--Em(8)--B(8)--F#(4)

You play the above a bunch of times and then you do the little B to 
F#/A# then go to this below.  When marked with *, play chord only twice
with palm muting.

G#*(2)--F#*(2)--Em*(2)--Em*(2) (x2)

Strum these chords

G#(8)--F#(8)--Em(16)(you play this progression with strumming in the beat
of the song a whole bunch of times and then you hit the Em and just let it
fade out then play this little solo, youll have to listen to song for timing,
its an oversimplified version, so feel free to add notes if they sound good
and dont throw off the beat)


e----------------------------
b---------------------5--4---
g--4-6-4--4-3---4-6-4------4-
d-------------4--------------
a----------------------------
E----------------------------

Then after this you do this jaun.
Play these chords sort of quickly.
G#(3)-F#(3)-G#(3)-F#(3)-G#(1)-F#(1)-Em   - do this like three or four times
then hit the Em and let it 

fade...then go to this next section with palm muting.
pm...................
G#(16)--F#(16)--Em(32)

No palm muting here, same riff basically as before.
G#(3)-F#(3)-G#(3)-F#(3)-G#(1)-F#(1)-Em(1)

(#)=Number of times to play the chord

hey man this tab is good. Taking Back Sunday is a rad band. I wish someone would tab out there song "eleven." I think there are harmonics at the biggining and it would be a challenge. If you could do it you would be a god in my books.
