AS WE GO UP
-----------

The chorus and verse are both arpeggiated barre chords. These are the
notes I think they're playing, but the guitar is pretty hard to hear
for most of the song

Verse:

  G          C         E         D
e---3------------------------------------------------------------------
B------3--------5------------------------------------------------------
G-----------------5-------9--------7-----------------------------------
D---------------------------9--------7---------------------------------
A------------3-------3-7------7--5-------------------------------------
E-3-------3------------------------------------------------------------

Chorus:

  G         C         Bm        C
e----3-------------------2--------------------------------------------
B------3------5------------3------5-----------------------------------
G---------------5-------------------5---------------------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-----------3------3--2------2--3-------------------------------------
E-3-------3-----------------------------------------------------------

For the bridge ("I speak in monotone...") play Bb and C, strummed
normally.

------------
BLIMPS GO 90
------------

The verse is a pretty simple little riff.

Play this thing a few times:

e------------------
B------------------
G------------------
D---4-------4------
A-2---2------------
E-------0-0---0----

Followed by:

e----------------------------------------
B----------------------------------------
G----------------------------------------   etc.
D---------------------------4-------4----
A----6-------6-----4------2--2-----------
E--4---4-4-4---0-2---2----------0-0---0--
               ^ (This is kind of a grace note played as you move your
                  fingers from the G#5 to F#5.)

The transition from verse to chorus goes:

e-------------------
B-------------------
G-------------------
D----4-----4--------
A--2---2-1---1-2----
E-------------------

The chorus is just two note power chords:

  G#5   F#5   E5
  G#5   E5    F#5

The violin part is basically four notes played in different orders.

e---11---9----------   is the first riff; the violin plays these notes
B-----------12---9--   throughout the rest of the song.

--------------
CLOSER YOU ARE
--------------

The verse is just a change between C and G barre chords.
The chorus is G C Bm Bb A.
For "Now you can see the boys" play C then B. (It might be C then G,
I'm not really sure.)
The "dreaming, scheming" riff is this:

e-----0-0-0-------0-0-0-----------------------------------------------
B---0-------0---0-------0-----0-0-0-------0-0-0-----------------------
G---------------------------0-------0---0-------0---------------------
D---------------------------------------------------------------------
A-0-----------0-------------------------------------------------------
E-------------------------0-----------0-------------------------------

The last part goes like this:

   C          G               Csus2

e--3-----3----3---------------3----------------------3----------------
B--5----------3---------------3----3--3--3-----------3----------------
G--5--5----5--4---------------5-5-----------5--------4----------------
D--5----------5---------------5----------------------5----------------
A--3----------5---------------3----------------------5----------------
E-------------3--------------------------------------3----------------

I get up      Seven o'clock   Drive myself up to the lookout rock

------------
LITTLE WHIRL
------------

The verse riff is:  D A G   E G A
The chorus is:  G  A
End on A D.

-----------
MY SON COOL
-----------

The intro is:  B   D
               B   D   E

The verse is:  A  D  A  F#  E  F#  D  B  D
 And then repeat the intro.

----------
PIMPLE ZOO
----------
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/g/guided_by_voices/alien_lanes_crd.html ]
The first part is E then G.
The break in between the two main parts is B G# D#.
Then the final part is E then Db.

--------------
A SALTY SALUTE
--------------

The guitar part to this is simply D and E. However, I think it sounds
better to follow the baseline, especially if you're just playing alone.
In that case, the chords are: D  A  D  G  F#  E  F#  G.

------------------
WATCH ME JUMPSTART
------------------

The opening riff is 3 barre chords: E F# A F# E
For the verse, I play the same chords, only leave the low E string open
and alternate it with the chords like this:

e-0-----0----------2-----2----------5------
B-0-----0----------2-----2----------5------
G-1-----1----------3-----3----------6------
D-2-----2----------4-----4----------7------
A-2-----2----------4-----4----------7------
E---0-0---0-0-...----0-0---0-0-...----0-0--

Followed by the main riff.
For the "Shoot me down part" play E followed by A.
Then, for "Cause I won't be around" play a Dbm. The little riff that
goes on there is just the B string; while making the Dbm, lift your
middle finger on and off, like this B-5-5-5-4-5. The rest of the bridge
goes like this:
       F#                              E
As you run from the places you love I remember the faces that cry

            C                  D         C
And they're pulling me back so I have to die
