   / Tim Christensen  /  Remember to check out my Guitar Pro tab of the whole
  / Superior         /  thing - it's definitely easier to learn the song from
 / Superior         /  that. It includes all the instruments, except for the
/__________________/  drums, and also includes many cool details that didn't fit
                     into this simple text tab!


Time:  Shuffled 4/4
Tempo: 65 bpm
Key:   C major

In this song there are 3 guitar: The acoustic one and two electrics,
one rhythm guitar and one solo guitar.
I've notated the guitars seperately to not mess up the tab more than necessary

 Notice that the chord is fully strum on all the off-beats,
 "1 and", "2 and", "3 and", "4 and". That gives the song its
 rhythmic feel, and that's really important for the song.

********************************************************************************

 Note that the acoustic guitar has a bit of a problem with the key.
 It has capo on the 5th fret, so when it plays an Am, it's actually a Dm,
 the Em/G is actually an Am/C and so on. That is one of the troubles when
 playing with capo, but that's life.
 The electric guitars don't play with capo, so their chords are the actual
 chords!

Hey, flot og mere udførlig tab end den jeg har lavet. Dog synes jeg lige at du skal kigge på soloen i min tab, da du hverken har oktaveret tonerne (som tim gør) eller skrevet de "bas"toner han spiller mellem stroferne. Ellers super arbejde :D

+2 reply
Maitinin 19,543 Dec 29, 2008 01:43 AM

Jeg er 100 på, at det ikke er oktaver, selvom det ville være typisk Tim, men nej, oktaver har altså en helt anden blødere lyd end denne meget diskante klang. "ban"tonerne imellem er spillet af elektriske rytme-guitar, så de ER med. De to elektriske guitarer laver simpelthen noget klassisk call'n'respond her i soloen.
