Okay, ice_wiz, here it is for ya! It's in Drop D. It doesn't have to be, but
that's what my guitar was tuned to when I started tabbing it, plus it's way
easier. This was hard to figure out. So PLEASE rate it.

Okay, he plays the last chorus a little different. He plays Pattern #1 4 times.
Then he plays Pattern #2 also 4 times. I won't tab it out cause I'm to lazy,
but you can figure it out. After the Chorus comes the Post-Chorus.

e---------------

D-7--9/10-11----
A-5--7/8--9-----

Okay, that's that. Hopefully I didn't leave anything out. Please rate it and
leave a comment. This tab was mainly for you ice_wiz, cause I know you are a
true fan of Kids in the Way.

Still Sleepwalking,

Very Good tab!! I'm not sure to give it a 4 or a 5 so... since it's not perfect I'll give it a 4. Here are some thing I found wrong...

D-44-4-4-7-12-999-11----
A-44-4-4-7-12-999-11---- Right here sounds like it should be

D-44-4-4-7-4-12-999-11----
A-44-4-4-7-4-12-999-11----
D-44-4-4-7-4-12-999-11---- with one more F#5

Also there are some minor mistakes in the verses... I think, not to sure though.
There are some dead notes or scratches or whatever you call them in the intro part where he goes "The truth is...". One more thing what do you play in the bridge? You know the part when he says "You broke my heart.."


akaukal - 2006-05-12

i labeled the bridge the post-chorus. I tried your chorus suggestion but it doesn't sound right. One thing though, when i copyed this from where i wrote it down i made a mistake when i copied it. In Pattern #2 of the Chorus, I said:
e------------------------
b------------------------
g------------------------
D------------------------
A-2-555555-22-5-222-4----
D------------------------

It should be
e------------------------
b------------------------
g------------------------
D------------------------
A-2-444444-22-5-222-4----
D------------------------

I didn't make a mistake, i just have illegible writing! lol sorry.


ice_wiz - 2006-05-13

Your right now that I think of it my chorus doesn't sound right, I think you had it at the beggining.


ice_wiz - 2006-05-17

Are you sure about the verse? Because I'm playing it and doesn't sound like it at all. I must be playing the rhythm wrong or something. Do you have any tips for the verse? Do you put some chorus in it or something?


akaukal - 2006-05-27

Which guitar? The lead guitar's rhythm is very tricky to get. By the way, the Rhythm part of the verse is only in the second. Unless I copied it out wrong...which I probably did. I'll look into it.


ice_wiz - 2006-06-27

Okay, you had it backwards. That's why it sounded so terrible.
