Artist: Falling Up
Album: Crashings
Song: Bittersweet

ok, i know there is already a tab for bittersweet, but i just saw falling up
in concert, and after the show, Joe taught me everything to this song exept
the bridge... so trust me, i don't want to sound cocky or stuck up, but this
is 100% right for sure :).  oh and, listen to the song for rythm &
timing...
enjoy!!

then A-dub (who is sadly not in falling up any more) does a little
DJ stuff, then(acoustic):

G//// A//// (the the foward slashes are for how many beats you play the chord)

then(back to the electric, 3x):
e|--------------------------------
b|--------------------------------
g|--------------------------------
d|7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-
a|5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-
D|5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-

then the super awesome part... which you can just check out the other 
bittersweet tab for... it's very very accurate.

3rd chorus(2x):
e|-------------------------------------------------------------------------
b|-------------------------------------------------------------------------
g|-------------------------------------------------------------------------
d|0-0-9-0-9-0-0-1112121211121112117--7-79--9-99---4-4-44-4-7777777777777777*

THE END

have fun with it... it's really tough at first(especially the chorus), 
but once your brain and/or hands get used to it, it shouldn't be too bad.
feel free to comment or correct the tab... though the only corrections would
be due to a typo or something like that, since, like i said earlier, Joe 
showed me this song... so it's right, unless you want to think Joe's wrong ;).

In His Grip,
Ben (guitarbmee)

sorry sorry... for the second part of the second bridge, you're supposed to hold each chord played instead of doing the normal palm muting. and i forgot to put where to palm mute... so just listen to the song to figure that out... it shouldn't be too hard. sorry.

oops i said "on the second part of the second bridge"... it's supposed to be "second part of the second verse". haha my bad.


sac346 - 2006-05-16

Dude, I played this song for the first time and I couldn't figure it out, but after a few months of practicing, I feel like a natural. It's easier with an electric guitar though. This is definately a 6.0
