Code: Select all

C
Did you say what you wanted said?
                                F
And now you're just putting the days to bed
                     C
young actors want to play and play
                            F
and you'll play, but you're working


                    C
call applicants and stole cornering them
                          F
we're all waiting for the big day
                              C
if you feel crazy that you're still crazy
                         F
it hasn't happened for a few days

well just wait


F  C

                                        F
in hindsight you're gonna wish you were here
        C
you keep scratching at the old paint
        F             C
but the wood is still there
        F             C
and the room is still there

C F
                             C
if you're trying to feel the wind
G                                   F                 
well that's a window you're pressed against


He switches to a G for a quarter note every now and again -- especially before switching from the C to the F. If anyone wants to listen for them and insert them all...be my guest. I can't figure it out. But here's the main body of it.

Seeing as you have only one post, I'm not sure if you even still visit this board... but if you do, try playing with the barre chords E (on the 7th fret/A-string), A, G#m, A.

I figured out a simple way to play Ultimatum in standard tuning, if I get some time I'll post the tab.

awesome, maybe John can pay some attention, I've witnessed him forgetting the tuning twice in the heat of the live moment

It's not hard to play in normal tuning. Just use barre chords in place of the one finger hold down-thingie, and play the open D up an octave.

Thanks a lot man, but by barre chords do you mean like:

e 7
b 5
g 5
d 5
a 7
e X

Oh my god, am I actually about to contribute something???

Hindsight

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

(Little chord progression that'll get filled in later)

e----------3--------5---------7----------8
b-------------------------------------------
g-------------------------------------------
d-------------------------------------------
a---3--2-----5---4---7---6-----8---7-----
e-------------------------------------------



Little ending thing
e -----0-1-0-----
b 1-3---------3-0
g-----------------
d-----------------
a-----------------
e-----------------

I know it's not much, but the song came on and I was playing along with the C and F chords trying to get the timings, and when I appregiated them part of it sounded right. Someone can help out with this, or we can all just acknowledge that it's not right (mostly). Oh well, at least people recognize it. And it was fun. Cheers!

(Outro is Intro/Chorus repeated)

I did this at work with no guitar handy, but I'm pretty confident in its accuracy. In standard tuning, you're missing out on playing some open strings as drones and the bassy low end of the open D string, but at the very least, I will take satisfaction in knowing John has this available for the next time he forgets the correct tuning.

Mimi is all chords. Do you own a capo? Some of those, (ie New Girl) are really easy.
