Shes A Star Tab

   
SHE'S A STAR - JAMES

Tabbed by Steve K (Worked out to be played on the acoustic guitar. 
I've added some optional bits I thought sounds nice) * = optional

>From the album: "Whiplash"

Intro: G [3 x 0 0 3 3] G/Gb [2 x 0 0 3 3] Cadd9 [x 3 x 0 3 3] 
Dsus4 [x 0 0 2 3 3] D* [x 0 0 2 3 2]  (x3) 
The first 2 chords of the intro build it up like the original,
it sounds good. I.E down strokes on the E A and D strings only.
Don't worry about the A string its deadened anyhow. And like
the original when the drums kick in strum with it until the
Cadd9 and carry on as normal with the typical rhythm.

Tab for the other chords :- A7sus4  [x 0 2 0 3 3] Em/D [0 2 2 0 3 3]

 Theres another way to play the bridge which works well too it's a
small change and different from the original so try this too :-

A7sus4     Cadd9                         Dsus4          Cadd9
Oh no, she knows where to hide in the dark
A7sus4                              Cadd9      Dsus4   
Oh no, she's nowhere to hide in the dark         
D*
She's a star..

  Additional options :-

  Try slowing the song down and change the rhythm to suit. 
Put a bit more feeling into it, I've tryed this with the chords
I've worked out and it also sounds good.

  Theres another version archived by Dan Taylor which finalised my
research on this song try them both and see what you think.
