Elsewhere
by Sarah McLachlan
from the album Fumbling Towards Ecstacy
Transcribed by John Argentiero (jfafreak@wam.umd.edu)

The bulk of this song is done on piano, but I will provide chords that 
sound decent on guitar.  The spacing of the chords may seem odd, but I 
tried my best to match them up with the vocals.  The album is the best 
reference for when to play what.

This is some tab for the intro, notes in brackets are supposed to be done 
on piano.

Incidentally, heres TAB for the chords, just for clarity's sake...

The song fades out repeating that last line.

Sometime around the last chorus, the guitar stops playing chords and 
plays this:

e-----|-----|-------|---------|--------|----------|--------|-2b1/2-2--|
B-X-X-|-X-X-|-X-3-X-|-X-----X-|-X------|-X------X-|----X-X-|----------|
G-X-X-|-X-X-|-X---X-|-X-----X-|-X-5--X-|-X------X-|----X-X-|----------|
D-X-X-|-X-X-|-X---X-|-X-5h7-X-|-X------|-X--5h7-X-|--7-X-X-|----------|
A-----|-----|-------|---------|--------|----------|--------|----------|
E-----|-----|-------|---------|--------|----------|--------|----------|

This is played twice and then the guitar goes into the outro.  Listen to 
the album closely for the timing of this part, its kinda buried in the 
piano parts.  
When playing this song alone on acoustic guitar, just ignore this part 
and play the straight chords listed above.
Hope thiss is all you need to play this rather spiffy song.
Enjoy, and email me with amy comments!
