I noticed that nobody tabbed this song, and i just so happen to know it,
so here it goes.

This song is played C#.

~=Bend up and then back to normal
x=palm mute

(Bass intro then)

Intro:

eb---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bb---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Gb---------------------------------------------------------------------------
C#---x-14-12-12-11----------------------------------x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-14-12-12-
Ab---x-------------14-12-12-14-11-11-12-12-12-11-11-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x----------
C#---------------------------------------------------------------------------

eb-------------------------------------------
Bb-------------------------------------------
Gb-------------------------------------------
C#---11--------------------------------------
Ab------14-12-12-14-11-11-12-12-12-11-11-----
C#-------------------------------------------

Verse 1:

eb-----------------------x4
Bb-------------------------
Gb-------------------------
C#---2-x-6-7-x-4-4-4-2-----
Ab---2-x-6-7-x-4-4-4-2-----
C#---2-x-6-7-x-4-4-4-2-----

Chorus:

Ab---2-2-2-6-7-x-x-4-x-x-2-x-----
C#---2-2-2-6-7-x-x-4-x-x-2-x-----

Pre-Verse:

eb----------------------------------------------------
Bb----------------------------------------------------
Gb---------12-13-14-----------------------------------
C#---14-12-12-13-14-----------------------------------
Ab------------------12-12-14-11-11-12-12-12-11-11-----
C#----------------------------------------------------

Verse 2:

eb-----------------------x4

Ab---2-x-6-7-x-4-4-4-2-----
C#---2-x-6-7-x-4-4-4-2-----

Then you do the chorus again. Ending it with an extra eb---------
Then you do this.                                     Bb---------
                                                      Gb---------
Bridge:                                               C#---2-----
                                                      Ab---2-----
eb------------------x2                                C#---2-----
Bb-------7---7--------
Gb---7---7---7---7----
C#---7-----------7----
Ab--------------------
C#--------------------

Then you do it a bit faster like this

eb--------------------------------------x2
Bb-----------7777777777777777-------------
Gb---77777777777777777777777777777777-----
C#---77777777----------------77777777-----
Ab----------------------------------------
C#----------------------------------------

Then you do the chorus two more times.
Then the outro is...

Outro:

eb------------------------------------------x2
Bb--------------------------------------------
Gb--------------------------------------------
C#---2-2-4~-0-x-2-2-4~-0-x-2-2-4~-0-0-1-2-----
Ab---2-2-4~-0-x-2-2-4~-0-x-2-2-4~-0-0-1-2-----
C#---2-2-4~-0-x-2-2-4~-0-x-2-2-4~-0-0-1-2-----

Then you just clap along for the rest of it. So yeah, have fun
and God Bless!!!

I think you did a great job on the Tabs for this song. The only thing I can't get though my own head, is why I have the feeling to play the Intro on the 11th fret, more than two times. For some reason, it just feels like there's something left out. But, it might just be me. Thanks for the Tabs. God bless. ^_^


graysondh - 2006-08-19

The intro and outro are wrong. Unfortunately, i have no time to post a correction.


Xo PePpEr NoSe - 2006-12-30

something is wrong... its really really close though -emily-


guitarfreak8106 - 2007-01-07

does any1 know the bass 4 this song?!?!!?


Te eF Kay - 2007-01-21

if this is correct all u need to have drop C# tuning for is the outro.


GibsonRocker - 2007-02-11

Very observant Te eF Kay


Te eF Kay - 2007-02-26

I just said that cause I use a whammy pedal 4 the bridge and play the rest in drop d just to save time;)
and yes I am mainly guitarist but I know the bass for this song and might post it some time soon for ya:)


Te eF Kay - 2007-02-26

and its only the C# string used in the verse and the 4 in the chorus doesnt sound quiet right!


aneb524 - 2007-04-05

Good tab, but i think the intro is easier to play this way:

Standered tuning-eadgbe

e--------------------------------------------------------
a---4---2----2--1----------------------------------------
d-----------------3--1-1-3----0-0-1---1--1--0-0----------
g--------------------------------------------------------
b--------------------------------------------------------
e--------------------------------------------------------


It sounds the same, but it not as low on the guitar...which is easier for me, because my guitar doesn't have a cutoff.

NICE TAB! PERFECT ON THE INTRO!!

God Bless!


Jesus_Freak! - 2008-10-22

Sweet! I just bought this song on iTunes. I've played the song through iTunes while i went along with the tabs on screen. The only thing I see missing is right after the end of the chorus it sounds like there should be a higher note after the "xx2" and on the verse after the 4442. I dunno. maybe i'm just listening to a different album it's Smile "xx2" 4442
It's the end of the world. "xx2" 4442


gibsunlespaul10 - 2009-11-23
