                             Positive Jam - The Hold Steady
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Shrodes

Such a good song, by such a great band.

This one kicks off their debut... fairly easy to play

Didn't tab the solos, as I was playing this on acoustic.

=============
Intro / Verse
=============

e|---1---1-0-1---1-0-1---1-0-1---1-1-1---1-0-1---1-0-1---1-0-1---1-1-----|
B|---3---3-3-3---3-3-3---3-3-3---3-3-3---3-3-3---3-3-3---3-3-3---3-3-----|
G|---2---2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2-----|
D|---0---0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0-0---0-0-2---2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2-2---2-2-----|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|

After the final two strums, return to the standard D-minor at the start of what's shown above.

This ends at the line "put it all down on technology and lost everything we invested" 
goes into:

======
Chorus
======

e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|----------------7---|
D|--8-8-8--5-5-5--7---|
A|--8-8-8--5-5-5--5---|
E|--6-6-6--3-3-3------|

And on the final time it goes:

e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|---------------|
D|--8-8-8--5-5---|
A|--8-8-8--5-5---|
E|--6-6-6--3-3---|

======
Ending
======

e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|---------------|
D|--5-5---5-5----|
A|--5-5---5-5----|
E|--3-3---3-3----|

With solos in between the two strums until Craig sings "all the sniffling indie kids. 
Steady" then:


e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|---------------|
D|--7-7---7-7----|
A|--7-7---7-7----|
E|--5-5---5-5----|

With solos in between the two strums until Craig sings "all you clustered up clever 
Hold Steady" then:


e|---------------|
B|---------------|
G|---------------|
D|--8-8---8-8----|
A|--8-8---8-8----|
E|--6-6---6-6----|

With solos in between the two strums until Craig sings "...and so I started a band, man" then:

e|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---------------------|
D|--10--10---10--10----|
A|--10--10---10--10----|
E|--8---8----8---8-----|

With solos in between the two strums until Craig sings "Hold Steady" then end on:

e|--------|
B|--------|
G|---7----|
D|---7----|
A|---5----|
E|--------|

Just watching some videos of the song, I think it's tuned a half step lower, which doesn't affect the power chord placement in the verses, but the intro Dm will have to be moved up (as it is an actual Dm, regardless of tuning)
