What do you mean, "of course"? How was I supposed to know?

And does that *really* change my tab? Really?

"of course" because that degree of rock-i-tude can only be achieved in the 'dropped D' tuning fashion, and no, it doesn't change your tab, except by adding several magnitudes of rockingness to it.

*scratches head* but a dropped-D tuning only changes one string, and two notes. So couldn't it, at it's maximum, add merely a couple of magnitudes of rockingness to it?

But you're right. I should have realized, nevertheless, that Nora is entirely too much concentrated rock for the averagely tuned guitar. :)

Man, I hate it when you guys get all scientific about this stuff. Does the number of magnitudes really matter?

I was just pondering. I think if it was switched to a dropped-C tuning, we'd get twice the number of new rock magnitudes.

IT WOULD BE METAL, MAN.

And I don't mean Metallica metal, I mean Static-X metal.

As with the Guitar part; Cinnamon can be played with a capo on the first fret on the Mandolin.

Since the Mandolin is strung EE DD AA EE, the chords look a little different.

Use the Chord Finder below to display the tab for the following chords in Mando form:

Verse: G, D, C,

The Chorus has an E minor in there.



Mandolin Chord Finder

The "Gondola's" verse has the same chords only played using a technique known as Tremolo picking, or "Gondola" style..

do we have in our greedy mitts a tab for "the honest sound of coming down"? Please in an endearing porkey pig way...

I fixed the chorus of Unsalted Butter. I'm pretty sure it's accurrate now. The guitar part is mixed louder in the WSH version, which aided the fix.

So...um...Ultimatum anyone?

It's definately CAPO 1, and definately starts with the picking of a C, but then I get lost faster than you can say...umm.. well, faster than you can say "lost".

Well, I think there's some different tuning here, and I can "fake" it in standard tuning but until I figure out the authentic tuning I will refrain from posting what I have figured out. Tabbing all the finger pickins would take days, and I'm not that ambitious when it comes to tabs

Weird. I picked up my guitar today, and I couldn't get the C on CAPO 1 to sound right at all. I'm glad to hear that the tuning is crazy. I'm excited to find a good tab. It's a gorgeous song.

I can tell you now that you don't need a capo if you are tuned to John's specs.

Key frets: 7, 5, 4 (needs to be minor though)

On the "My arms miss you" part you want to start with just one finger on the fifth fret of the low A and follow along with the music as it bounces down to the G chord, which is the 5th fret. There's some finger pickin stuff you'll need to figure out, but if you do you'll realize the song isn't as hard as it sounds. Prepare to have very tired fingers.

More to come...

I can't get the fourth fret to work.

I pick 7th fret, 5th, and then open.

yes, open is key too, sorry i left that out.

4th fret should be something like -x-----
-0-----
-0-----
-4-----
-4-----
-x-----

You should hear it when he says "...acres of trees..."

Just wondering if anyone knows Bride and Bridle off the top of their heads? Yes? No? Maybe? If not, I can try and see what I can do once I find my tuning device.

Code: Select all

NOTE:
Verse C: 010230;   Chorus C: 330230

G          D                  G
I came back on the trail of a man
F                      C
things are the same as when I left
                         G
Well, I so wanted to say "hey!"
   D#                                C   G
But I know you think my sentence was too light.



G              D                G
Time should've put this behind us
F         C
Some things I won't soon forget
                                   G
Bride and Bridle are too close to a man's mind
      D#                             c   G
And I know you think my sentence was too light.


G    C       G       C
Yooooou, you weren't true
      G             C                G
but I can't blame a woman who changes
        C       G     C               G         C         G
Threeeeeeee-thousand, Six-Hundred and Fifty-odd days I waited

Time, I did my time


I can't figure out that last line of the chorus just now. Bummer.

Be generous with the hammer-on's on the second fret whilst playing G's and C's.
