Switchfoot
Lonely Nation
Nothing Is Sound
(c) 2005 Sony BMG MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT

Tabbed by: Supaduk

Believe it or not but this is another great song by Switchfoot.
But remember to tune your guitar to droop D for this one.
Tuning: Drop D (DADGBE)

INTRO/VERSE 1: The intro is mostly piano 
and drums but theres an acoustic part stuck 
in too. It might be hard to hear but once 
you hear it you can find the strumming if this 
exact. This part is also played in the second 
half of the 1st verse.

VERSE 2: This verse has two parts to it, the 
1st goes with the 1st two lines and the 2nd 
is played on the last two lines and is once 
again the acoustic part that goes with the 
The electric part is the same part that is in
the interlude right before the verse. If
you listen to the song you can hear the exact 
muting and stuff like that to get it perfect.
