                                                             Monte - Zee Avi
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Jaime.W
Email: beatlesislove@hotmail.com

Tuning: Open D (DADF#AD)
Capo: 2nd Fret (therefore, the song is in the key of E.)
Tab is relative to capo.

NOTE: IMPORTANT. PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS TAB.

When you see this: -0- , it means you have to strum the strings using nails to create the sound as
                                   -0-
                                   -0-
                                   -0-
                                   -0-
                                   ---
heard in the recording. I can't explain it in words, but listen to the song and
you will know what I mean. I cannot tab this out exactly like the recording as it
is too random, as Im figuring out the tab (and listening to Monte repeatedly,)  I
mostly did it with "feel", so do the same too, don't follow this tab strictly as
it is, because as I said, Zee strums the strings randomly throughout the song.
However, there is a pattern to the song, especially in the verse, after every bass
note, Zee strums the rest of the strings, open.

HOW TO PLAY HARMONICS: It is like barring all the strings at the fret only you DO
NOT PRESS THEM, instead, you just 'touch' the strings lightly, near to the right
'metal bar' of the fret to achieve a high note.

I hope I did not make this tab seem confusing because it is really not difficult
to play the song once you get the rhythm and the pattern of the song. So I suggest
you to listen to the song till you are able to recognise the pattern and the
rhythm, then play together with the song. You can also watch Zee's video here
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WdXDgaEgaJ8 to get a rough idea of how she strums/
plucks. Monte is the last of the 4 songs in the video, it starts at around 07:42.


Please do not hesitate to email me if you have any questions at
beatlesislove@hotmail.com , or if you think that there are errors in my tab. (: I
did my best and I know it is not 100% accurate but I really think it is decent
enough. Hope my first tab is a satisfactory one and rate it! (:

Have fun!

|-5-----0-----------------0------------0-----------------|

there are slight changes to the pattern at the 12th time (the line leading to the chorus),

|---0----0----0----0--0----0--0-----0--0------0--0----|
|---0----0----0----0-------0--------0---------0-------|

then this riff:

For the second verse, play the same riff as Verse 1, but play it only 8 times

Repeat Chorus.

There are changes to the riff after the second chorus. This riff leads to the end of the song:

|----------0----0-------0----0--------0--------0--------0----0----0----|

the two harmonics at the very end is supposed to be 7+ 12+... technically ur hitting the 9th fret, but the rest of the tab is relative to the capo... Excellent tab and song
