Band: Pearl Jam
Song: Rearview Mirror
Album: Vs (1993)

Alright, as you probably know from the video clip, there are at least 3 guitars in this song. Eddy Vedder is obviously playing the rythm to it all, and Mike adds the icing. Some of the timings are a bit tricky and so on so just listen and play along with the CD a bit and you should get it. Im not gonna be one of those hard motherfuckers and say that if you can't get it then you shouldnt be playing guitar. Fuck them, this is a shit tab (my first) and I hope it helps. Good luck. This song fucking rocks.


The main chords in the song are as follows:


   Bm  C#   G   A5      F#  G
e|--------------------------3---|
B|--------------------------3---|
G|--------------------------0---|
D|-9---11---5---7---4---4---0---|
A|-9---11---5---7---4---4---2---|
E|-7---9----3---5---0---2---3---|


INTRO AND VERSE


The intro and the verse are all pretty ordinary. It just jumps between the A and the B

     
e|-------------------| |-------------------| |-------------------|
B|-------------------| |-------------------| |-------------------|
G|-------------------| |-------------------| |-------------------|
D|-------------------| |-------------------| |-------------------|
A|------5---5-7------| |------7---7-9------| |------5---5-7------|
E|--5-5---5-----0-0--| |--7-7---7-----0-0--| |--5-5---5-----0-0--|


CHORUS

The chorus it a bit different. 

Eddy & Stone both play:

Bm  C#  G  A  F  F#m  G, 	
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/p/pearl_jam/rearview_mirror_tab.html ]
   Bm  C#   G   A5 F#m     F#m  G     G (Mike only at tail)
e|---------------------------------|--3---|
B|---------------------------------|--3---|
G|---------------------------------|--0---|
D|-9---11---5---7---4---4---4---5--|--0---|
A|-9---11---5---7---4---4---4---5--|--2---|
E|-7---9----3---5---2---0---2---3--|--3---|

Listen to the CD to get the timings. These are all down strums.
Mike only strums the chords once, and on the first note.
i.e   
	Bm Bm, Bm C#, G G, G A, then the tail of the riff, though instead of power chords like the other guys he ends on the G chord.



The majority of the song is much the same, though the lead Mike adpats is as follows:

e|------------12--14----------12--14-|	Then,	---------------------------------------------|
B|-----12--12---------12--12---------|		--12--12--12-14-14b16r14---12--14-14b16r14---|


BRIDGE

When the slow bit starts Eddy wastes no time and goes straight to strumming the 5th Fret on low E string.
(Listen for the timings)

Eddy:
A|-----------------------------|
e|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|

Stone:
D|--7------5--/9---7------------------------
A|--x------x--/x---x------------------------ Let notes ring
E|--5------3--/7---5------------------------

Mike:
e|----------------------        ----------------
B|---------------------- Then,  ----------------
G|----7-----/-----10----        ----------------
D|----------------------        -----9-----7----
A|----------------------        ----------------
E|----------------------	----------------

Then, when the song picks up it alters between the B7 and C#9 for a few bars each then back into the verse riff.

    B7  C#9
e|----------------------   
B|---------------------- 
G|----------------------
D|--9---11--------------
A|--9---11--------------
E|--7---9---------------

Remember: God gave rock n' roll to you.

Brett.
