By The Tree
Root


This is a great song with a great meaning. By the Tree has become one of my favorite bands with the release of "ROOT"
Enjoy guys!

There are a lot of different versions of the same chords in this song, and i dont know the correct names of all of them.
I basically numbered them in the order you will use them.

A -X-   D -x   C# -4   G# -4   A2 -5   F# -2
  -10-    -10     -5      -4      -5      -2
  -9-     -9      -6      -4      -6      -2
  -7-     -0      -6      -6      -7      -4
  -0-     -0      -X      -6      -7      -4
  -X-     -X      -X      -X      -X      -X

D2 -2   E -0   F#2 -X  D3 -X   A3 -X   E2 -X
   -2     -0       -X     -X      -X      -X
   -2     -1       -X     -7      -X      -9
   -0     -2       -4     -7      -7      -9
   -0     -2       -4     -5      -7      -7
   -X     -0       -2     -X      -5      -X

B -X    B2 -7    E3 -7
  -X       -7       -7 
  -4       -8       -9
  -4       -9       -9
  -2       -9       -7
  -X       -7       -7

Now here's the order they go in-
(listen to the song to figure out how many times you play each line)

INTRO-  A, D

VERSE-  C#, G#, A2, F#

PRE-CHORUS-  D2, E, D2, E, B

CHORUS 1- A, D

REPEAT VERSE AND PRE-CHORUS CHORDS FOR VERSE 2

REPEAT CHORUS 1

BRIDGE- F#, D3, A3, E2 (when all music except guitar stops, play A)

AFTER THE BRIDGE THERE IS A SHORT INSTRUMENTAL. PLAY  B2, E3

THEN IT WILL GO BACK TO- D2, E, (4 TIMES) THEN B

CHORUS 2- B2, E3

I'm not sure if i am supposed to say this here or somewhere else, 
but I know you have a tab already for this song. The reason I am submitting 
a new one is because the old one had too many mistakes to just correct. It 
would take longer to correct their mistakes than it would to just make a 
new one.
