Vanessa Carlton
Be Not Nobody
Submitted by: canuck_inbred@yahoo.com

Hey!!! This song is originally played in a piano but I already converted it to 2 guitars.
Take note that I tab this song more than a week because Vanessa's fingers are very fast
and hard to guess what's she's pressing, but now I will make this very accurate for you.
If you're using an electric guitar, you have no problem because the electric can reach
up to 21-24 frets but If you have an acoustic, you have a little problems because the
acoustic can only reach up to 20 frets and that highest fret will sound very weak. This
song's highest fret is 19 and the base key is B Major. If you're purchasing an acoustic
one, buy the DON JON, it has 21 frets. She's a very talented pianist, she can fit the
base keys E-F#-D#-E on her left hand while doing the fast melody on her right hand. This
song is full of plucking, if you used to pluck only using your index finger, this song
is slow for you, I recommend you to use 2 or more fingers, Me I'm only using 2 for thumb
and index. Then you will pluck it fast if you obey what I said.
