Handsome Life Of Swing Tab

Lostprophets - The Handsome Life Of Swing + Interlude 3

This is pretty much correct.

Also, i have the MM4 but it hasn\'t the FX to produce the intro sound; 
Lee used a Digitech RP7 (now contained in the GNX series) as well as the 
Line 6 stompboxes, im sure there is an FX on the filter pedal as
the sound produced isnt just from tremolo picking.

For Guitar 2, you\'ll prob need a compression pedal to take the \'edge\'
off the open string sound.

Ive included the live ending an some live variations to the song,
based on the ozzfest recordings i have an what i have seen live.

Any questions/comments email me.


Guitar 1: (maybe w/ little delay + maybe v. fast tremolo-pedal FX 
an also some sustain effect)

Tremolo pick v. fast.  Repeat up to 00:41.

	      | listen for down slide @ end of 00:06
		slide back up exactly 1 second later  |  
D|-------17-----------17\15-------------15/17---------------------|

F|-------14-----------14\12-------------12/14---------------------|
C|----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------|
C|----------------------------------------------------------------|


Then at 00:23 the picking changes to single notes played v. fast.
When i saw this live, both times, Guitar 1 (Lee) plays something 
like this by placing 1 finger down on the fret, playing the note 
an then lifting the finger off so the note doesnt ring out.  
He then moves onto the next note:

(FX are still the same as before)
This isnt 100% but it sounds like what was played live an kinda 
fits.

Guitar 2: comes in @ end of 00:04 			x4
         (Mute after each section to stop ringing)

\"Point your finger...\"
Guitar 1 slows down so each note can be heard but it is still fast

Guitar 2 plays this (below) after 4th repeat of above riff @ 00:24

(Mute after each section to stop ringing)	     


Both Guitars: @ end Of 00:41 
(\"Here inside, won\'t be here to stay...\")
Verse (with chorus effect + maybe some flange)
D|--3--------3--------3--3-------3--------3--3-----------3--------|
A|--3--------3--------3--3--3----3--------3--3--3--------3--------|

Then repeat Intro and verse once more following the same timing.
The only difference is that guitar 2 comes in with guitar 1 
imediately after verse (above).


Guitar 1:
Plays this over the 2nd repeat of the verse while guitar 2 plays
the normal verse
(with chorus effect + clean tone + a slight echo)

The 12/13 on D string is silent/very quick

Then Both Guitars: (\"But hey...\" part)
(with heavy distortion + chorus)

	(Mute after each one to stop ringing)

Guitar 2 continues this riff while Guitar 1 plays this over it:
(distortion an mayb a wah or sustain - something to make the notes 
 ring - i just hold them so they ring + the slides are optional as
 they too make the sound more \'whiney\')

			      | Let last note ring|

At UK Ozzfest, the guitar 1 (Lee) began the overlay in this way:
(distortion + chorus, again slides are optional) 
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
F|-/10-10--12--14---/10--12--14---/10--12--14---/10-12------------|
C|----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------|
C|----------------------------------------------------------------|
Then after the 12,12,11 on the C,F and A strings, the overlay goes
back to normal starting with the 14 on the F and not the 12.

The live ending to the song played at all shows is this:
(Normally has a flange effect on over the distortion)
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----10--10h11--10--11/13~--------------------------------------|
F|--12------------------------------------------------------------|
C|----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------------------------------------------------------|
C|----------------------------------------------------------------|
			  | Let the slide ring |


On the album, the interlude after it is this (this took a while to
figure out):
(Chorus effect maybe w/ slight flange to create a watery sound
after each note so it rings better)

Tune repeats an then fades out
