                             SONG NAME - Band Name
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Peasey

Just wanted to get this up so people could learn a cool song thats not too hard to play, 
it's a bugger to write one so simple without sounding like someone else!

Tuning: Standard

Chords used:             (Relative to the capo)
Lead Guitar              Rhythm (capo 3rd fret)
D minor                  B minor
F major 6                D major
F sus4                   D sus4
A#/Bb major              G major
G minor                  E minor

Intro/Verse
Rhythm Guitar
Fairly laid back strumming, you should be able to play along to the track to make sure 
right. The Dsus4 is used as a passing phrase before you go to the G so don't hang around 
it!

B min ||| / D maj | D sus4 D maj | / G maj ||| / E min |||

Stay on the G before going to the chorus.

Chorus
A bit loose on the video I've seen but roughly this pattern.

B min ||||||| / D maj ||| / G maj | / G maj | / G maj |||

That's the entire rhythm part for the song, which is repeated throughout - under the 
it's the verse chords.

Lead Guitar

Intro
Improvised around the D minor pentatonic scale - if you don't know that then here it is 
You can use this shape starting on the 6th string in any key just by moving that first 
:)

Verse
Just add a little fill here and there, but the memorable riff you'll hear is tabbed 
next to the D minor pentatonic shape. Strum the G till rhythm guitar moves to the chorus!

        D Minor Pentatonic 'Box'                                        G min
e|------------------------------10-13-|------------------------------------10-------|
B|------------------------10-13-------|------------------------------------11-------|
G|------------------10-12-------------|------------------------------------12-------|
D|------------10-12-------------------|------------------------------------12-------|
A|------10-12-------------------------|--------8v---------8v----------8b---10-------|
E|10-13-------------------------------|-10-10v----10p8h10----10p8h10v---------------|

Chorus
With the same pattern as the rhythm guitar play these barre chords (see below)

D minor / F major 6 / A# major


e|-5---------10----------6------------|
B|-6---------10----------6------------|
G|-7---------10----------7------------|
D|-7---------10----------8------------|
A|-5---------8-----------8------------|
E|-----------------------6------------|

For the rest of the song, just use these parts as a guide and improvise in D minor 
and the D blues scale.

Solo section uses the scales mentioned above, but here's the blues scale in the same 
as the pentatonic one for those who don't know :) (Don't hang around too long on the notes 
brackets or you'll sound a bit rubbish)

        D Blues Scale
e|---------------------------------------10-13-|
B|---------------------------------10-13-------|
G|----------------------10-12-(13)-------------|
D|----------------10-12------------------------|
A|------10-(11)-12-----------------------------|
E|10-13----------------------------------------|

Hope this helps you all learn the song, which is fast becoming a favorite of mine! I 
mean to patronise anyone who already knows their scales etc, I just wanted to help those 
don't since I'm hoping to be a guitar teacher :)
