The Microphones - The Glow Pt. 2

Tabbed by Jack Jutson

The intro is a bit strange, i think there are 2 guitars playing it. But heres the
basic chords to get you going. Just power chords F-C-C#. You work out the timing
for yourself, its pretty simple.
 

     F          C           C#
E|---x----------x-----------x-----
B|---x----------x-----------x-----
D|---2----------5-----------6-----
G|---3----------5-----------6-----
A|---3----------3-----------4-----
F|---1----------x-----------x-----



Once the distorted intro is through, Phils acoustic comes in and plays the
following three chords.


    Em   Em11(7)   A7 (sus2)
e|--0-------x--------x---|
B|--0-------x--------x---|
G|--0-------0--------2---|
D|--2-------4--------5---|
A|--2-------0--------0---|
E|--0-------2--------3---|

Em        Em11             A7          Em           Em11                    A7
i took my shirt off in the yard/no one saw that the skin on my shoulder was golden

         Em                  Em11           A7
now it's not, my shirts back on/i forgot my songs/the glow is gone

Em11  Em         Em11    A7
my    gliding    body    stopped



(Here, the guitar stops playing, but you can still strum the chords, or play it
however you want. Or  you can get a big organ and do it that way. Up to you.)


Em                         Em11             A7
i could not get through september without a battle

  Em11   Em            Em11            A7
i face   death, i went in with my arms swinging

                   Em                   Em11                A7
but i heard my own breath, and i had to face that i'm still living

          Em            Em11       A7
i'm still flesh, i hold onto awful feelings

        Em               Em11            A7
i'm not dead, there's no end, my face is red


(And this bit here where phil does the really long notes is just crazy ambient
organs that dont fit into the guitar. Im sure there is a way, but not in my head,
so someone else come up with something.)


my blood flows harshly/my heart beats loudly

my chest still draws breath, i hold it, i'm buoyant

there's no end.



(heres the intrumental part at the end. Its only the really basic form, he mucks
around a bit, and has another guitar and a bass i do believe. This should just
get you going.)


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

This next part repeats until the end of the song.

E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------0-------0----------------0-------0-------------0-------0-----------------0---3-0---3-0--|
G|-----0-------0---------0------0-------0-------0-----0-------0-------0---------0---0-----0-----0|

i don't know how accurate this is, but i find it at least easier to sing along if you play Em, Bm, C for the main part of the song.

p.s. solar system is a sad version of "fall flood" by little wings. i think it'd be easier to figure out the tab for it by listening to that song instead.

This tab is alright, but in the intro there are two more chords which come after the other three. G sharp and B flat.
