Konstantine Chords & Tabs
Okay, I haven't found a version online that I really liked (or that sounded
complete played only on an acoustic guitar), so I decided to throw this together.
Please note that I'm not aiming for a 100% correct, complete tab, just something
that I can play on my acoustic that conveys the song well enough to enjoy. After
all, it is a piano based song, so it would be hard to play it exactly the same.
Chords (probably not the correct names, just stabs in the dark):
Bb - x133xxx ----> x132xx
F/D - x532xxx ----> x533xx
Bb/G - 3x33xx ----> 3x32xx
Eb/Bb - 668xxx ----> 667xxx
What the arrows above mean: on the D and G strings, the fingers pretty much stay
around the 3 frets, but it sounds good to throw in the arrow-listed chords while
playing the main chord. Listen to the song to hear what I mean... the piano
alternates between the notes.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/s/something_corporate/konstantine_crd.html ]
Bb/D - 5587xx
Eb - x688xx
F/C - x81010xx (just a 'power chord' F at the 8th fret on the A string)
Bb - 688xxx
Bb/A - 588xxx
Gm - 3553xx
Note: all chords are palm muted, except for during the chorus, or whenever else
you feel motivated to change... if you want to try to pick out the pattern, go
for it. In general, throw some other notes in there as well if you want...
whatever makes YOU happy.
Here's the gist of it:
I can't imagine all the people that you know
and the places that you go
when the lights are turned down low
Bb/D Eb F Bb Bb/A (x2)
and then you bring me home
afraid to find out that you're alone, no
Bb Bb/A Gm
and I'm sleeping in your living room
we don't have much room... to live/love
And that just about wraps it up. Throw some bongos in there, and you've got
yourself a campfire waiting to happen. Any questions, comments, email me at
