Stay
----
Donated to Dave Matthews Band Guitar Tab Archives by Rory Lowe
Credit.....Rory Lowe.....Glade14@aol.com

This tune, you have to keep great rhythm for it to sound good....also you have
to use a lot of muting....For the chorus you have to pick out the rythem..its
easy to figure out!

Here's my early transcription of this excellent song...
There are a number of nuances -- my advice is to sit down and
play along with the disk.

Here's another version from Jack:

here's the verse from Stay (similar to Two Step), at least what I got:

e-x--x--x--x-x--x--x-x
B-x--x--x--x-x--x--x-x
G-10-10-10-x-10-8--7-8
D-x--x--x--x-x--x--x-x
A-x--x--x--x-x--x--x-x
E-10-10-10-x-10-6--6-6

just go back and forth with the rhythm on the 3rd string on the 7th and 
8th fret.

Here's another version from Todd Woodard:


Hey..I've been over the tab's that you have for Stay, and I think my
version is more accurate than the others you have.. Try it out, it's
simpler (Dave's parts are usually fairly simple), and I think it sounds
more like the song:
    |   .   |   .   |   .   |   .   |   .   |   .   |   .   |   .   
-------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------
---10---10-10---x-x-x-x-x10---8---7---8-----8-----7---8-----8s10---
----8----8--8---x-x-x-x-x-8---8---5---5-----5-----6---6-----6s-8---
-------------------------------------------------------------------
-------------------------------------------------------------------
                                    |
Each beat is marked off with a |, it's a two bar phrase, the bar line
denoted with a | on the bottom of the staff.  If you listen carefully, you
will hear the slide I've tabbed out at the end of the 'riff'.





Here's another from Erik Hedman:

i figured out the tabs form the intro to stay. i took a look at
everyones tabs,but it seemed they were moving all over the neck of the
guitar. Dave basically stays in one place. I don't have the special format
to write it in, so i'm going to do my best.sorry this is how it is.  

e--------------------------------------pull off
b-----6 6 6 x x x x 6 4 3---4 4 4 4 3---4/5
g-----3 3 3 x x x x 3 3 3---3 3 3 3-----5/6
d---------------------------5 5 5 5-----6/7 
a------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------


Here's another from Steven Leigh (steven2525@hotmail.com):

e-------------------------------|
B--6-66---6---3-4--4h3---4--4/6-|
G--7-77---7-8-x-x--x---7-5--5/7-|
D--8-88---8-8-5-5--5---6-6--6/8-|
A-------------------------------|
E-------------------------------|

I left out the muting because it's tough to notate and it gets 
confusing anyway, just listen to the album to get the rhythm.

As I said I went through this note by note to make sure it was
right, and they are typical Dave Matthews chords, so it should
be correct.




Here's yet another from Jason Weathers:

his is just the intro to the song and I thought I'd share how I think the
song is played. It sure sounds a lot better than the other tabs, and I
think its pretty right on. 

E------------------------------------------------------------------
B----6-----4-----4-----4-------------------------------------------
G----7-----5-----3-----5-------------------------------------------
D----8-------------------------------------------------------------
A------------------------------------------------------------------
E------------------------------------------------------------------ 

I'll finish up with the rest of the song soon including the jam in the middle
that sounds just like a lot of notes (ie. like the jam in Drive in at the
end of the song) so keep checking. 




Yet another version from Keith McCoy:

b--6-66---6---------------|
g--7-77---78-7-88--7-88/10| Stay intro 
d--8-88---86-5-55--6-66---|
