This is actually how the intro goes it is perfect to he has a little bit of delay on when he plays


iono dudes - 2005-03-07

NO!!! your all wrong!
this is it:

E-5---7---6--6---0
A-0---0-5---6---7-
D-00000-----------
G-----6-7-6-7-----
B-9--10-888-777---

BlackAttack1287 - 2005-03-17

OK, here's my version.

-777-0000-000-0000-000-0000-0000-
-000-0000-999-0000-000-0000-0000-

-000-0000-000-0000-999-0000-9999-
---------------------------------
---------------------------------

I'm still a newb, but I think mine is more accurate than any of the others, what do the experienced players think?

Ryan Freeland - 2005-03-24

Nope. You are all wrong. This is the absolute correct intro tab. You strum up then and down, easy:

E|--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0
B|-12-12-12--0--0--0--9--9--9--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0
G|--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9
D|-11-11-11-11-11-11--9--9--9--9--9--9--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7
A|--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X
E|--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X--X


ivory_feather - 2005-04-07

Music is Music. There is no point in arguing. It's much more fun to play your own version anyways.


jotpreserver - 2005-04-22

Ivory's right but for all you PC people, on the video, he plays,
e: 777-000-555-000-0000000000000000
B: 555-555-555-555-5555555555555555
G: 666-666-666-666-6666666666666666
D: 777-777-777-777-7777777777777777


bigfatape828 - 2005-04-26

SG_man_22 - 2005-04-28

building boys' is correct


tlc13 - 2005-06-08

even though i think there is no reason for arguing, i'll add to the conversation.
this is what i think the right tabs are. strumming:
ddu ddu ddu ddu ddu (d=down, u=up)
E---000---000---000---000---440--
B---000---000---000---000---440--

repeating how ever many times you want

i've been playing for 4 years and i think this is pretty accurate


tlc13 - 2005-06-09

pleas correct me if you think this is wrong, even though i think it is right


guitarplayer67 - 2005-06-24

you are wrong. building 429 is playing it rite


Mar-T - 2005-06-25

The way that Building 429 submitted it sounds like the best way to me.


xRoxy2x - 2005-07-25

Building 429 IS right. Thats the way its played on the cd!



-Katy


Fikreab - 2005-08-16

like they said building 429 sounds the best

guitardude1500 - 2005-10-13

bigfatape828 is correct ecxept just move it down 2 more frets and it sounds perfect!!


guitardude1500 - 2005-10-13

bigfatape828 is correct ecxept just move it down 2 more frets which is the ninth fret and it sounds perfect!!


guitardude1500 - 2005-10-13

sry guys JOTPRESERVER is correct except move it down 2 frets which is the ninth and it sounds perfect! SORRY


Xtreme4Gzus - 2006-03-16

Ummm.... yeah. First off, I've gotta say that Building Boy (or whatever his name is... not sure, sorry) has the most accurate version, EXCEPT that on the first chord, I believe that it is not 11th fret on D (making it a C#/Db) but a 9th fret, making it a B. It fits better in with the chords of the song, because E B G# E is an E maj chord, but E B C# E is a very odd E6 chord. The intro is a chord progression of E maj, A maj, then so on, so E6 sounds kinda funny. You never know I guess, but that's what my Switchfoot "the beautiful letdown" tab book says about this song. Then again this was the "Learning to Breathe" CD.


susbandgeek1990 - 2006-05-06

I have listened to Switchfoot for 3 1/2 years. I'm pretty young(15) but have never seen people argue about a song that is so easy to play. Building Boy is very close, but some parts are a little weird. Here is the correct version...
Standard tuning-

jesus*gurl - 2006-06-27

:) :) :) :) :) Ha, ha, ha, this is one of the funniest things ive ever seen! You guys are ridiculous! Right on to the people sticking up for the person who tabbed this. You did awesome! As for those of you who are tearing him down, um, I don't think you'd be so upset if you really knew how to play it yourself... Anyways, uh, Jemmah, cool dude, but cussing ain't right. How 'bout darn? I realize you were probably mad, but for heavens sakes, calm down! So, cool it. I really wish this would fix things, but looking at the others who have tried to fix it, I don't think it's gonna happen. God bless all of you. Keep on tabbin'!


b89kev - 2006-08-31

I'd just like to say all you guys crack me up! I personally think that a lot of these tabs sound good and they probably work very well, but you guys are still all wrong. I have the actual Switchfoot: The Beautiful Letdown guitar book that has all of the correct tabs in it because Switchfoot made it. If you want the real intro tab and all of the other tabs for that CD just buy the book or something and quit arguing.
