Artist:Kids in the Way
Album:Apparitions of Melody
Copyright 2005 Flicker Records
Tuning:Drop D

Hello everyone. 2 of my friends recently sent me a couple videos of them at a
KITW concert. Both videos were aimed at each guitarist. So maybe you can say
I cheated, but I just like to call it inside info:). Everyone else was getting
the chorus wrong, so hopefully I have the correct one.

Intro/Verse 1 riff:the use an awesome effect here that makes it sound like
there are 2 guitars playing this.
e-----------------------------------
b-----------------------------------
g-----------------------------------
D-----------------------------------
A-44-74744-44-74744-22-52522--------
D----------------------------44-44--

Thing just before Verse 1:
e------
b------
g------
D------
A------
D-11\--

Verse 1 just starts out with bass and drums and then it uses the intro riff

Chorus:Here is the part where everyone else went wrong. I'm 100% sure this is
right
e-------------------------------------------------------------
b-------------------------------------------------------------
g-------------------------------------------------------------
D-7--7-7-7-7-7-7-666-6-6-6-6-6--444-4-4-4-4-4--999-9-9-9-9-9--
A-7--7-7-7-7-7-7-777-7-7-7-7-7--444-4-4-4-4-4--999-9-9-9-9-9--
D-7--7-7-7-7-7-7-666-6-6-6-6-6--444-4-4-4-4-4--999-9-9-9-9-9--
The rhythm may not be exactly right, but the notes are

Chorus outro thing:Hard to hear, but it's there(done by Lead Guitar)
e----------
b------12--
g-8-11-----
D----------
A----------
D----------

Verse 2:I'm not exactly sure about these chords, but they sound right
e------------
b-5----4--9--
g-6----4--9--
D-6----4--9--
A-4----2--7--
D------------
then use the intro riff

Solo Part 1:Rhythm Guitar
e-----------------------
b-----------------------
g-----------------------
D-16----11--1/16----11--
A-16----11--1/16----11--
D-16----11--1/16----11--

Solo Part 1:Lead guitar
e-14-9--
b-------
g-------
D-------
A-------
D-------

Solo Part 2:rhythm guitar
e-----------------------
b-----------------------
g-66-666-88-888-99-999--
D-66-666-88-888-99-999--
A-44-444-66-666-77-777--
D-----------------------

Solo Part2:Lead guitar
e-9--11--12--
b------------
g------------
D------------
A------------
D------------

thing after solo:(he sings chorus over this)
e------------
b------------
g-6-------8--
D-7----9--9--
A-7----9--9--
D-7----9--9--

Then go back to the rest of the chorus

That is it. It should be over 90% correct. Please rate and leave a comment

Still Sleepwalking,

This sounds good also.. but you dont need to go in drop d. its fine in standard.


akaukal - 2006-06-01

I know it doesn't have to be. That's just how they play live.


ice_wiz - 2006-06-02

This is a great tab! I never could get the chorus, but this great. One more thing, the effect they use in the intro is chorus/flange.


zero91 - 2006-06-02

finally somebody got it right! sounds perfect. good job!


akaukal - 2006-06-02

thanks guys. Yeah ice_wiz you're right about the flange! It sounds way better with it on.


Relient Kenny - 2006-07-08

Thanks for the Tabs on this. I recently heard the song and well, have to now know how to play it. You did a great job. God bless and thanks again. ^_^


akaukal - 2006-07-09

No problem! Kids in the Way are so fun to tab.


heisouronlyhope - 2006-08-16

Intro/Verse 1 riff:the use an awesome effect here that makes it sound like
there are 2 guitars playing this. you mean delay? they have two guitarists.


CBentley9188 - 2006-09-07

Awesome tab eveything is perfect except for one thing. They play it in Drop D and down a half-step so the strings should be C# G# C# F# A# D#. Othere than that it was great


ESPkid_16 - 2006-11-10

sorry CBentley9188, but they play it in DropD like it is tabbed... trust me!


E-rock - 2006-11-18

this tab is amazingly easy to pick up on. didnt even have to follow the whole tab beause you explained it so well. nicely done.


rockthecross09 - 2007-01-06

kids in the way is a wicked gnarly band and everyone needs to know about them even if they dont like rock/ emo music.


ficionistw/kitw - 2007-01-29

First of all rockthecross09 kids in the way are not Emo they are this little thing , that we have forgotten about, called SCREAMO. Hey akaukal do you think you can tab their new song getting over you getting over me. Apparitions of Melody is an awesome tab. Thanks ^_^


ficionistw/kitw - 2007-01-29
