Anberlin
Autobahn
Blueprints for the Black Market
Tooth & Nail Records (2003)

This acoustic version of Autobahn was a promo originally for the 
Rolling Stone Magazine website and may have once been on the MTV site, 
but now it can only be found in audio 
format on Kazaa, etc.

The tuning for this song is really weird because it's in standard tuning but 
lowered about 1/4 step as if he didn't have a tuner and tuned it too low.
If you're not playing along with the song or if you are playing along with the
non-acoustic one on the cd, just leave it in standard. If you're playing with
the acoustic version, tune the A string, 3rd fret to the guitar on the song. 
Then tune all of the other strings to the A string. It's not complicated, 
it just sounds complicated. Anyway, on to the tab.


  C  G Am  B  F   F(2nd vers.)

C G Am B (x2)

The G and B are just little transition chords.

Verse (We're driving...)
muted:
C F C F(2)
not muted:
C F C F

Chorus (Stereo sings...)
Am F Am F
C  F Am F

Verse 2(we're miles from...)
muted:
C F C F(2)
not muted:
C F C F

Chorus (Stereo sings our...)
Am F Am F
C  F Am F <---x2

?mystery chord?

C F Am  F
C F Am  F
end on... C

And there you go. I hope that's confusing, and I hope all of you are pleased 
with it. That one part that says mystery chord says that because I don't know
what it is, but it is only played for a second and it sounds fin if you just 
play C in its place. So just follow the notes down the page and you're 
good to go. The reason there is two F's is because they are in different 
octaves and it sounds better and is easier to play them differently
than having just one F chord.

I hear nothing wrong with this and niether do my fellow guitarists,
so hopefully it is 100% correct and comment if you find anything.

the c chord can be played as:
-3-
-5-
-5-
-5-
-3-
-X-
and B can be:
-1-
-3-
-3-
-3-
-1-
-X-
so its easier to switch

This is really confusing. I tried playing it, but it was really hard to follow with your chords. And it doesn't sound that easy either.


BuddyofSponge - 2005-06-26

sorry if it is confusing, I tried to make it as simple as I could, but it was hard.

and yes, you are right about the C and B chords. that is the way I usually play them in this song, anyway.


BuddyofSponge - 2005-06-26

by the way I noticed that I said "I hope that's confusing" at the bottom which is supposed to be "I hope that's not confusing"


hahaha sorry about that.

i don't think this was hard if you can play barred chords... if you can't you are out of luck. i found that this song is easier to play if you use all down strokes. I can get it to sound like the actual song, but the strumming patten is too weird... just use downstrokes.... :)

I definitly agree with neddie about the downstroking... i could almost play it as perfect as the song itself... and yeah once you get their weird stroking pattern down then you guys will be able to play it pretty easy... cause really it is an easy song to play... well... i really liked this tab... very nice...
