FILE DESCRIPTION:       A Chord and TAB book for the album:
                        "Youth & Young Manhood" by the Kings Of Leon.
                        
WRITER'S NOTES:         First off, a big thank you to all the people who have e-mailed
                        me to say well done for doing the TAB. So many have struggled
                        to find anything suitable.
                        
                        So here it is! The complete chord & TAB book to the best
                        debut album since Definitely Maybe! I've worked everything out
                        as best I can, but Caleb's southern drawl is kinda hard to get
                        to grips with on a couple of songs; mostly the middle 8 part
                        on "Trani", but I think it's as near as I'm gonnae get.
                        
                        Here's a few details of what I used to gather information:
                        "SPIRAL STAIRCASE", "MOLLY'S CHAMBERS" and "JOE'S HEAD" were
                        all on BBC1 Scotland, which showed 6 programs from "T In The
                        Park", 2003.(I was there and the Kings were fantastic!) 3 of
                        the shows had the Kings on, so I managed to get the lyrics and
                        chords worked out better. "CALIFORNIA WAITING" was played on
                        "FRIDAY NIGHT WITH JONATHAN ROSS" on BBC1, so again I got a
                        good look at what was being played. "MOLLY'S CHAMBERS" was also
                        played on the "LATE SHOW WITH DAVID LETTERMAN". Various videos, TV
                        appearances and photos were also used. I ripped the tracks to MP3
                        and loaded them into GOLDWAVE - (www.goldwave.com) which has
                        excellent facilities to swap channels, isolate vocals etc. It was
                        a lot easier, and more informative than just listening to the CD
                        via your stereo and some headphones! Although I did use my
                        headphones too. You'll see on the "HAPPY ALONE" track that
                        Matthew plays in Drop D; Caleb stays in Standard tuning
                        throughout the album. Also, on "GENIUS", Matthew uses Open G
                        tuning. I know this because the Kings, well Matthew, was
                        interviewed in the September 2003 issue of GUITAR magazine,
                        (The one with The Darkness (Great Band) on the cover) and he said
                        that the only time the machineheads deviate from standard tuning
                        is on the two said tracks. I originally got the best part of the
                        lyrics from the excellent, HAPPYALONE.COM, (www.happyalone.com)
                        website but some of them weren't right, so using the vocal
                        isolation technique on GOLDWAVE, I sorted out most of the ropey
                        lyrics.
                        
                        I hope this will be of use to you; it should be!
                        You can use this as and when/where you like. Please don't use
                        it for profit; It wasn't created for that! Webmasters can use this
                        file without my permission, just as long as I am credited as the
                        author.
                        
                        Thanks again, and HAVE FUN!
                        Deano.

!!! HELLO !!!

Here is the UPDATED complete chord songbook and TAB to the best debut album since
Definitely Maybe! I've worked everything out as best I can, but Calebs' southern
drawl is kinda hard to get to grips with on a couple of songs, but I think it's
as near as. I've also tabbed the solo to "Red Morning Light" and "Molly's Chambers".
(I'm working on the others!)


"SPIRAL STAIRCASE", "MOLLY'S CHAMBERS" and "JOE'S HEAD" - BBC2 Scotland showed 6
                                                          programs from T In The Park
                                                          recently. 3 of them had The
                                                          Kings on. So I managed to get
                                                          the lyrics and chords worked
                                                          out better.


*NOTE: You'll see on the "Happy Alone" track that Matthew plays in Drop D. Caleb stays
in Standard tuning throughout the album. Also, on "Genius", Matthew uses Open G tuning.
I know this because The Kings, well Matthew, is interviewed in the September 2003 issue
of GUITAR magazine, (The one with The Darkness (Great Band) on the cover) and he tells
us that the only time the machineheads deviate from standard tuning is on the two said
tracks. - Hope that clears things up!


I got the best part of the lyrics from the excellent, HAPPYALONE.COM,
(www.happyalone.com) website but some of them weren't right, so you'll see variations.
If you have any comments or suggestions to anything here, please do email me.

Cheers,
Have Fun.

Deano.

P.S. - (.) in the TAB = Let Chord Ring. (N.C. = No Chord Played) (P.M. = Palm Mute)
