Mad Season Tab

   
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     MAD SEASON - MATCHBOX TWENTY
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Gerard E
Email: gerard_au@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard

This is technically the tab for the lead guitar only. However for the verses i've
noted the rhythm part as the lead guitar is often, but not always, silent (ie. you
can also play the rhythm part if you're bored as the lead guitarist). I've also put
the chord voicings for the song in many places.

Riff 1 always played by the rhythm guitar, but sometimes accompanied by lead.

Verse 2

				  I.. need  you now

For the fast repeats of B|--15-- the number of repetitions are 
suggestive only (but very close to, if not the same as the original). 
More or less reps can be used depending on how fast you can pick! I had to slow
the recording down to work this out, so if you are able to do that you might find
it easier to get a feel for the last two sections of the solo tab.

Chorus 2
I need you now
Do you think you can cope
You figured me out - I'm lost and I'm hopeless
Bleeding and broken - though I've never spoken

Chorus 3 and Outro
I need you now
Do you think you can cope
You figured me out - I'm a child and I'm hopeless
Bleeding and broken - though I've never spoken
I come, Ohhhhhhh i come undone - in this mad season
	    D#7     ^		     ^			       ^
		   Riff 1         Lick A	   Riff 1      Lick B


Lick A					Lick B
e|-13/15\13--------------------         ---18~-------

D|-----------------------------         -------------
A|-----------------------------         -------------
E|-----------------------------         -------------

Then it's just Riff 1 and 2 for the rest of the outro.

In this mad season
There's been a mad season
Been a mad season
