This is Walk The Moon's new version of Tightrope from their Tightrope EP! Its a
great song and so far no tabs are out there! major bummer. This might not be a perfect
tab (Pshh yeah, right), but it's better than zero tabs. The TABS FOR THE REGULAR
TIGHTROPE ARE WRONG FOR THIS VERSION and definitely don't fit this song. And if you 
absolutely love WALK THE MOON like I do, then give this tab 5 stars! It is literally the 
most accurate (at the time I submitted this)
version of the acoustic Tightrope thanks to guitar virtuoso Eli Maiman himself!

SLAP that CAPO on the 2nd fret!  (All chords relative to capo)

A0 ( I don't know the name for it but it totally fits the sound)

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

after that chord, theres another that looks like this:

A00 (Another weird chord)

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

In an earlier version I had said that this was a D because, purely listening to the
song, and as I do not have perfect pitch, I had guesstimated that it was a D, but at a
Chipotle Cultivate festival in San Francisco I met Eli Maiman!!!! (The guitarist, if you 
didn't know) So cool. But besides that, he told me it was a Ebm7 (not relative to capo) and
that this is how you play it (relative to capo so technically it's a Dbm7 relative to 
shape and position I guess) He also signed my hat. Score. SORRY FOR ALL THE COMMENTARY

Dbm7 (Relative)

E|-1-|
B|-1-|
G|-1-|
D|-3-|
A|-4-|
E|-x-|

 Intro:

  A                      A0     A00       E

  A           A6         A0     A00
Easy now, with my heart
  A           A6         A0          A00
Easy now, oh with my heart
  A                                          A6   A0     A00
Walk a tightrope, walk a little tightrope
  A                                          A6   A0         A00
You walk a tightrope, walk a little tightrope
  A          E      F#m     Dbm    A                E       F#m       Dbm 
But oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh this heart is burning up
  A          E      F#m     Dbm    A                E       F#m       Dbm 
I said oh, oh, oh, oh ,oh, oh, oh this heart is burning up

There is a piece that I had titled as a S0lo, but even mention of the word had my tab
denied so I'm cheating... but here it is, FOR MUSIC! YEAH! Also Eli plays it in a more
difficult way cuz he's just so pro so I simplified it, you're welcome! (Sounds exactly (eh) 
the same)

S0LO-ish:

e|-5---0-2-0-----------|
B|---2-------2-0-------|
G|---------------2-----|
D|---------------------|
A|---------------------|
E|---------------------|

(The pattern is the same for the rest of the song)

Careful now, with my head
I said careful now, what you do to my head
Make your mind up, make your little mind up
To each his own, each his or her own oh, oh, oh,
But oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, this heart is burning up
I said oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, this heart is burning up

In my bed, I'm rolling over, yeah
I'm tangling,
Up in the chains on the swings on the set on the night that we met
And now the beads of water, move up the glass
You speak your mind, and you can not take it back
Walk a tightrope, walk a little tightrope
Walk a tightrope, walk a little tightrope
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh this heart is burning up
I said oh, oh, oh, oh ,oh, oh, oh this heart is burning up
I said oh, oh, oh, oh ,oh, oh, oh this heart is burning up
I said oh, oh, oh, oh ,oh, oh, oh this heart is burning up
Its, its burning up
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh...

LOVE YOU, WALK THE MOON!!!

Then figure it out on your own, silly. I watched their live videos many times. It isn't perfect but neither are you, goose.
