Bad Diary Days by Pedro the Lion
TAB by Jules Deas

The album version is difficult to pull off if you’re just playing guitar
and singing. The bass follows D-F#-G (then E-B-A in the turnaround) in
the verse, then in the chorus it follows D-E-D-A-F#-G. The verse guitar
plays mostly an F# (on the D-string) but goes down to E and up to G, etc.
Although the bass and guitar notes can be played at once on guitar, it can
get complicated if you’re singing at the same time (at least for me), and
it doesn’t sound very full. So, if you’re just strumming and singing, I’d
recommend playing it in this manner.

Chords: Play D, E, and A as the most common forms of the chord. B minor is
the second fret barred chord, and the others (I don’t feel like delving into
theory to figure out their actual names, it’s more complicated for both of
us if I do.)  The “hybrid chords” are simply 2 notes from the D chord with
an F# and a G in the bass, respectively. If you don’t follow, here they are
tabbed out.

F#/D:    G/D:

E x      E x    
B 3      B 3
G 2      G 2
D x      D x
A x      A x
E 2      E 3 

E    x    x     x
B    x    x     x
G    0    x     2
D    2    4     x
A    x    2     0
E    x    x     x

D	F#/D	G/D

D	F#/D	G/D

Emin	Bmin	A

The “CHORUS,” if you want to call it that, is a series of 2 note harmonies
on the guitar.  If you know some simple theory, its easy… D5, Eminor3rd,
Dmajor3rd, A5, F#minor3rd, Gmajor3rd. That’s it. If you don’t, here’s the
tab (or my best attempt at it):

E  x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x 
B  x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x 
G  2 2 2 0 0 0 x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x x   
D  0 0 0 2 2 2 4 4 2 2 2 x x x x x x x x x x x x x    
A  x x x x x x 5 5 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 2 2 2 2 2 2 2 2
E  x x x x x x x x x x x 2 2 2 2 2 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3 

There is a simple octave solo at the end, but if you’re playing by yourself,
I’d recommend just sticking with the chords.
