Barrel Of A Gun Tab

   
Song: Barrel of a Gun
Artist: Guster
Tabbed by: Ari Mihaltses
Email: modulater@aol.com

Tuning: Standard Tune, Capo on first fret

This was tabbed by listening to the CD and also watching Ryan's hands from when they
played this song on Conan, I think its pretty right.  Mostly, this is what Ryan plays,
I added little parts (that Adam plays on his guitar) that make it sound more complete.
Listen to song for strumming patterns.

**Note, tabbing is NOT relative to capo, it is the actual frets, so if you see a "1" it
means to leave the string open because the capo has it covered ;)  I debated about which
format to use to write it down and this is the least confusing in my mind.  

**Also, the lyrics I have provided above each section are for being specific about which
part I am referring to and in no way match up with the chord progression underneath.
Listen to the song for the changes.


INTRO:

e|---6--6--6--6---|

Play the second half of the second verse just as the second half of the first.

Next comes the PRE-CHORUS, then CHORUS, and after that the...

BRIDGE:

B|--3-----4----4----1---|
G|--3-----1----3----2---|

A|--1-----3---------3---|
E|--------4---------1---|

Play the CHORUS one more time and at the end let an F# chord (tabbed above) ring out...
