Electrical Storm
tabbed by {phlikone}

I looked at some of the other tabs and they just seem to be off to me. This is what I
hear, it works fine with open chords or barred. I put a few alternatives for you to
experiment with. I am a solo acoustic guitarists...so I don't have the lead part, but
other tab versions might have it. Please give a good rating, Thanks! 

Chords

   F#m   A   E  or  E   B   D  or  D  C#m  or C#m
e|--0----0---0------7---0---0------5---0-------4---|
B|--0----0---0------9---0---0------7---0-------5---|
G|--2----6---1------9---8---11-----7---9-------6---|
D|--4----7---2------9---9---12-----7---11------6---|
A|--4----7---2------7---9---12-----5---11------4---|
E|--2----5---0------7---7---10-----5---9-------4---|
note: I make an open E chord and use my thumb for F#m, A, B, D, and C#m.
The rhythm is pretty tough to figure out, just get use to the song and you'll get it.


[Intro]

F#m  A   B


[Verse 1]

F#m         A      B           F#m
 The sea it swells like a sore head
                    A     B
and the night it is aching
F#m         A        B                  F#m
 Two lovers lie with no sheets on their bed
                  A       B
and the day it is breaking 

F#m       A       B           F#m
 On rainy days we go swimming out
          A         B           F#m
 on rainy days, swimming in the sound
          A       B
 On rainy days we go swimming out 


[Pre-Chorus]

D             E            C#m
 You're in my mind all the time
              D
I know that's not enough
               E
if the sky can crack
                       C#m
there must be some way back
             D
for love and only love 


[Instrumental]

F#m  A   B


[Verse 2]

F#m              A       B    
 Car alarm won't let you back to sleep
F#m                A            B          F#m
 you're kept awake dreaming someone else's dream
                A           B         
coffee is cold, but it will get you through
F#m                 A       B       
compromise, that's nothing new to you
F#m        A                 B          F#m
 let's see colours that have never been seen
              A           B          D
let's go to places no one else has been
 

[Pre-Chorus]

D             E           C#m
 You're in my mind allthe time
              D
I know that's not enough
               E
if the sky can crack
                       C#m
there must be some way back
             D
for love and only love
 

[Chorus]
 
D E  F#m        A
     Electrical Storm
D E  F#m        A
     Electrical Storm
D E  F#m        A - B 
     Electrical Storm
B             F#m 
Baby don't cry 


[Intro]

F#m  A   B  (2x)


[Verse 3]

F#m                A             B       
 It's hot as hell, honey in this room

F#m                         A     B       
 sure hope the weather will break soon

F#m                A           B       
 the air is heavy, heavy as a truck
F#m                 A             B       
 hope the rain will wash away our bad luck 

D  E  C#m  D 
heeeey... heeeey..... 

D               E                             C#m      
 If the sky can crack, there must be some way back
             D
for love and only love 


[Chorus]
 
D E  F#m        A
     Electrical Storm
D E  F#m        A
     Electrical Storm
D E  F#m        A - B ~~~~~~~~~~~
     Electrical Storm


E              A
  Baby don't cry (repeat)



ELECTRICAL STORM (EASY VERSION)
tabbed by Phlikone.

I'm going to put an "easy" version...I figured it out last night, these are basic chords
but played with a capo on two. These are the same "notes" as in the above version, just
easier to play for those, like me, struggle sometimes. So I hope this will help those who
are just learning...Don't forget to rate! Thanks.

First version is amazing, man! But just one little thing: Add the chords F and C, just once - before the outro with E and A...
