Relient K
Which to Bury, Us or the Hatchet?

Hey, This is my very first submission to this site but I think it is a good 
one.  Let me know what you think.

Make sure that you tune your guitar down a half step.  All of the chords listed
are played with the normal fingerings but just sound a half step lower.
Here's a few chords:
      Gm
eb]----3----------
Bb]----3----------
Gb]----3----------
Db]----5----------
Ab]----5----------
Eb]---(1 or mute)-

First Verse - This is the standard version:
Am - F - Dm - G - E

First Verse Option - You can do what is shown below to add a heavier sound to 
the song...
eb]----------------------------------------------------------------------]
Bb]----------------------------------------------------------------------]
Gb]-2222222222222222------------------2222222222222222-------------------]

Verse Two:
Am - F - Dm - G - E

Verse Two (Optional) - This is when the music quiets down for the
second part of verse two.  You'll have to listen carfully to hear it
in the song (It can also be played for all of verse two if desired):
*When playing this, make sure that you stoke the strings slow enough 
so you can here each individual note. Strum downwards each time.*

eb]---7-5-7-5-8-5--8-5-8-5-8-5---8-5-8-5-8-5-]

Hey, its J-Priceless
sorry, I left out the chorus:
F - Am - Dm - Am


JPriceless101 - 2005-01-21

Hey, Its J-Priceless,
Gm sounds better in place of D4 in the second part of the interlude at the end of the song.


bbcome2 - 2005-02-11

hey man i love this song so so so so much. the meaning is so strong. i think you did a great job on this tab, even better that it is your first time. thax for all the hard work you put into this tab so i dont have to figure it out on my own.

question how long did it take to make this tab??


JPriceless101 - 2005-03-01

bbcome2...
Thanks for the postive feedback. To answer your question, lets just say it took me a looong time to type everything up. It took me much longer to figure out all of the music but some of it wasn't too hard. For some parts, I basically fixed the incorrect versions of the song out there and put it together in one correct form...well hopefully its correct.

Peace,
J-Priceless
RK Rocks!

okay, so like, i really really reeeeaaallly would LOVE to learn how to play this song,(i need to impress this guy at school..haha, just KIDDING) and i really really reeeeally don't know how to read tab..so if anyone could give me some pointers,that would be so stinking awesome..mahalo!!


David wood - 2005-03-14

reading tab is really simple. the lines are the strings O.K and the numbers are
the fret you play it one O.K so

E--0-- open
A--1-- first one on the first fret
D--2-- second on the second fret
G--2-- third on the second fret
B--0--
e--0--
I hope this helps

Hey, if you don't have a banjo, you can play the banjo part on an acoustic guitar. Just play really low on the strings, near the (don't know what the technical term is, but it's right near the base of the strings).


mmggppmgp - 2005-04-02

lol... i was lookin at $30 ukaleles and wanna buy it, cuz if this song i wanna buy a banjo... lol...




still miles and miles away from buying that new awesome guitar with the balance of $4.50... lol


jamforchrist123 - 2005-04-25

I Am New To Guitar, And I Was Wondering. On The Verse ("I Think You Know...") What Kind of Pedal Is That? Is It A Wah? If You Know, PLease Help!


newsgirl14 - 2005-05-11

I think all it is is palm-muting the strings.


jamforchrist123 - 2005-05-16

I Think Its A Wah Because It Gets More Treble, Then It Gets More Bass, And It Go's Back And Forth. Maybe Its An Auto Wah.


zeta - 2005-08-17

OptimusWoodz: the technical term is bridge. =)

Pretty good tab, I have a minor correction on the banjo part though.

crocky - 2006-01-28

I think a banjo only has 5 strings... not trying to be padantic, just trying to help :)


Fenderuser91 - 2006-07-12

That Banjo part is 100% correct. My cuz uses it all the time
