555% Tabs/Chords

Postby Gladney » 9th Apr 12, 17:17

Ok, so I know its early days yet after getting the 30 songs but I was wondering anyone has worked out chords or tabs for any songs, There's a few I'm dying to play but I'm shocking at getting things down by ear.

Ill be cheeky now and make a few requests:

Strange New Year
We've Been Expecting You
Just Another Song About Someone
Forget About It
Lover It'll All Work Out
Beautifully Blissfully unsettled!!

Cheers if anyone can help out here!

My brother did a cover of Lover... You might be able to work out some of the chords from his version.

ok then peeps, as i said this is no where near perfect, but i believe the chords are about right, feel free to have a mess around :D SAM

Code: Select all
main into riff

   G      C

(play the main intro riff over the lyrics - If you find it hard to do, you can just strum the chords)

G            C
I was a shy boy from by the sea
G            D
You were the orphan of a privileged family
G            C
I went to London to find a band
G            D
And you went to rebel against your higher education


D            G         
And you swore you'd never fly out of bounds
D            A
To keep your purdy feet on stony ground
B      A      G
But gravity could never hold you down
B   G
Hold you down
B      C      D
Hold you down anymore than I could keep you around

G            C
You broke hearts and made Jacks of Kings
G            D
And I broke guitars and made a similar mess of things
G            C
I met you crying on the back of a bus
G            D
We went from nothing to something more serious

D            G
And you swore if the ship ran aground
D            A
You would die beneath the waves like the crew around you
B      A      G
But gravity could never drag you down
B   G
Drag you down
B      C      D
Drag you down anymore than I could drag you around

B         A
You're like a fire that rages
A         C
And makes way for changes
B         A
A new vegetation within the burned out forest
A         C
I'm just being honest
You're clean from destruction
Must be some vocation
Neat Neat Neat

Main riff

G            C
You added me to your collection of men
And ya met someone new
And you did it all over again

D            G
And you'd be nothing but a memory
D            A
If there wasn't hungry little mouths to feed
B      A      G
But it's just the way that the ?duel? is on
B         G
You'll never be someone
B      G
Anyone depends upon
D                  (MAIN RIFF)
You're just another song about someone

Thanks for posting the tab/chords! I've been trying it out, and I think the opening riff goes like this:

This is the main parts of Forget About It. I haven't put the mid-section instrumental part together yet

(D) Life plays heavy on my (A) mind
It's gonna (F#m) kill me one dream at a (G) time
or (D) so it (Bm) seems it might
it (G) seems it might (D)

(D) Stops me from falling into (A) sleep
I lie (F#m) awake in ways so dark and (G) deep
I (D) pray my (Bm) soul to keep

(D) Once (G) again you forget (A) to (D) remind yourself to (G) just (A) forget about it
