Talked to John last night in Chicago, and it sounded like he plans on returning to the tab world to help us Little Winters out. We may get an Honest tab from the horse's mouth.

Ah! Great. I thought he had abandoned us nerds, now that he and his new posse are getting all "cool".

I'll give you a headstart...


Code: Select all

CAPO 5

C  Am
C  Am   G
C  C

G
She loves the singer
               A7
Every song can bring her close to tears
         Bm
When she talks about his band
        D
It just confirms her mother's fears

Am
A little crush on the singer
           C
But in her heart she knows it's true
Em
Everything is different
         D                C
When he's singing right to you


Her mother said...

D   C        Am        G     C
Honest, it's alright to be a singer
Am                   C
But don't you love a singer
    C
Whatever you do


Also, I slightly updated the New Girl chords on the tabulature website I host.

Pushover tab has been finished on page 5.

Here's the beginning of Delicate Hands...need's a bit more work.

Code: Select all

CAPO 5

G G Am Am
G G Am Am
G G Am Am
Am Am C C
x2

    G         Am
You play hard to want,
G           Am          G
You're hard to crumble up
Am                  C       G
I belong to someone already gone

Am       G
Hard to want,
       Am               G
You're hard to crumble up
Am                   C           G        Am      G
I belong to someone gone before I was born
Am           G             Am                C
    She was gone, She was gone before I was born


The last time we crossed
I held you under, wanting to feel you
wanting to breathe
And I thought you wanted to feel like breathing

You have delicate hands
And I know why
You have delicate hands
And I know why
There's nothing left to do
Not when you have the ocean for a view

CHORUS

The weight of this hairstyle's making me lazy
I think I'm going to leave it up all night
I want to feed you butter-rum candy
But someone beat you to me, beat you to me.

Code: Select all

The Sound of Coming Down

Note:
All chords are barre chords played mostly amongst the four lowest strings.

INTRO / CHORUS
G A X2
G C

or, more specifically, something like this:
G G /A \G  G /A \G G G G / C C C


G                                                  / C C C
 Quit hiding that you’re trying to get close to me
G
I believe it’s the one thing you said without smiling
C                   G
It’s dubious or it’s cruel
C             A           C   G                     
I’m losing my homemade cool
G                             
Are you fueling the loose ends?
                        / C C C
Are you cooling your jets?
G
You hide in my bed and I’m hiding in my bed
 C                         G
I can’t face the cold grey cold
C                   A               C            G
You can’t play nursemaid and be the crazy patient

CHORUS: (play intro, bub!)
    Hey, you know nobody’s chasing us
    This is the honest sound of coming down


Also, I just edited the Delicate Hands tab above to make it relative to the capo. Works better, and sounds more like the keyboard chords than the barre chords that were there before.

If it makes you feel better, sometimes he slides up to a D after the C's in Sound of Coming Down for a quarter note.

Aha! The beginning of Samaritan is a picking of the D with a capo on 2! That's about as far as I can get on that damn song! Haha.

For the record, it sounds to my ears like that A is an Am in The Sound of Coming Down, which I guess wouldn't really matter if you're not playing more than three strings into the power chord.

Sound of Coming down has a little special trick. I fret the standard "power chords" on the E and A strings, but I let the D G and B strings ring underneath, creating a sort of open G chord drone through the whole song. I never mute or fret those strings except during the solo.

Trying to tab out Hindsight is a bit hard -- not because the song's difficult, but because the rhythm guitar is mixed pretty far back. Although I've yet to master the exact time changes, if you chug away at C and F chords, you'll pretty much get it. If you check out the YouTube videos, you'll see he hits a really quick G chord when switching between the other chords.

Give Me A Moment

Code: Select all

INTRO / VERSE
(listen to the song for exact timing)
e|------------------------0-|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------------------------|
D|-----5-4--2p0--5h7----5---|
A|-/7-----------------4-----|
E|--------------------------|

CHORUS
As far as I can tell, it's Em / Em / D / A


Wow. I didn't realize I was so far behind on keeping the Long Winters Musicpage up-to-date. It's been all fixed now. Sorry, all!

Copernicus
----------
This part is best emulated by fingerpicking the strings, or
more accurately, by pulling them away from the guitar and then
letting them snap back down sharply. Don't pull too hard, or
snap TOO sharply, or you'll break a string! ;)
e|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|
G|-7~~~---6~~~--4~~~--2~~~-|
D|-------------------------|
A|-5~~~---4~~~--2~~~--0----|
E|-------------------------|

This progression can either be strummed softly or picked.
   D    D/C#   Bm   Dadd9
e|(5)---(5)---(2)---(2)--|
B|-7-----7-----3-----3---|
G|-7-----7-----4-----2---|
D|-7-----7-----4-----4---|
A|-5-----4-----2-----0---|
E|-----------------------|
A rough start. I think the progression changes halfway through the first verse... perhaps to D D/C# [something else] D. I'll attempt the chorus another night, unless someone else wants to finish this off. :)

Hello hello, though this may be my first post, i've been a fan for quite a while. The tabs here are super ^_^. Anyway, i thought i'd throw in my tab for Clouds.

Verse: D Am G
Chorus: D C G

There might be some variations of chords in there but this is what i've got so far. I've been trying to play it on the banjo as well but as of yet i cant keep up, alas.

Thanks for the Clouds tab. Sounds great. I added it and Copernicus to the site.

That leaves only 8 songs that haven't even been attempted. I'm running out of ammo. Any other musicians want to give these last few a shot?

Hint: Government Loans appears to be in the tuning DADF#AD. Here's a starting point.

Code: Select all

G                          F
Don’t give any cake to the blonde one
G                  F
Maybe she’ll be an artist
G                 F
She’ll do it or she won’t
That's what the acoustic guitar is playing. There's a lead slide guitar on top of it, playing the same chords, but from the F slides of to the A before coming back to the G. If you want to make it sound like you're playing both at once, strum the A twice before switching to the G. :)

Does anyone know the chords for the album version of Ulitmatium. I know, this was already done a while back but I really want to play the version with my whole band, can anyone help me?
