                             OFF THE RACK - Triggerfinger
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by Yves Bastien
Tuning: Standard

Note: While the song can be played in standard (like they do live), the intro contains a low C#, so you would
have to tune down to something like drop C. This isn’t only terribly inconvenient, it also doesn’t add
anything to the song when you’re playing it live. So I changed the note in a E, making it easier to play. 
Use artificial harmonics to get the sound right.

Edit: It appears that Ruben plays the notes an octave higher, but plucks the strings behind the bridge of his
guitar to get the high pitch harmonic sound.

LYRICS
(Intro)
(Verse I)
Through grand magazines who were quick to promote
Her well-stocked euphoria
Through seasonal catalogues
Featuring the latest zigzag, saw tooth, sun-ray
And rectilinear patterns
I picture her against a similarly geometric background
Through the smoke and mirrors
She peeled from the pack
I threw it to the wind
Not to lose the clues
I'm reaching out, I'm calling

(Chorus I)
Calling out, Calling out, Calling
Through the hide and seek
Calling out
Calling out, Calling out, Calling
Calling out, Calling out, Calling
To the hum and heat
Calling out
Calling out, Calling out, Calling

(Verse II)
Her modern style was sleek, subtle and sensual
Its simplicity alone was a radical
Departure from the overwrought complexity of sin
Not to misread, not to bruise
Moving up slowly

(Solo)
(Chorus II)
Calling out, Calling out, Calling
A living sense of play
Calling out
Calling out, Calling out, Calling
Calling out, Calling out, Calling
I won't back away
Calling out
Calling out, Calling out, Calling
Calling out, Calling out, Calling
Calling out, Calling out, Calling
