Breakeven Tab

   
I will be playing this song for a gig in which my band only consists of a
drummer, vocalist and guitarist (that'd be me). The problem? This song needs 
at least two guitarists. 
So, I wrote this tab (A.) For other bands who are in the same dilemma I am 
(one guitar and a well-layered piece) and (B.)so I could have a printed copy 
of my version.

Place your capo on the 3rd fret on the top 5 strings, leaving low E open so 
it looks like this:

e|-------capo-on-3rd----------|
B|-------capo-on-3rd----------|
G|-------capo-on-3rd----------|
D|-------capo-on-3rd----------|
A|-------capo-on-3rd----------|
E|-----------open-------------|

Tuning: Standard

Chords Used:
Em7   |x20000|
G     |320003|
D     |xx0232|
Cadd9 |x30010|

Intro:
e|--------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------------------------|
G|---7---7---7---7---7---7--------------------------------|
D|-8---8---8---8---8---8---8----7---7-----8----8----8-----| x4
A|----------------------------8---8----10---10---10---10--|
E|--------------------------------------------------------|

Now here's where the capo-ed trickery bit comes in. Without the capo, you'd 
play it like this:

e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|----3---3---3---3---|
D|--------------------|
A|--------------------|
E|-3---3----1---1-----|

But since you've already got the capo on the third fret on the G string, you 
play it like this:

e|--------------------|
B|--------------------|
G|----0---0---0---0---|Play it twice, then through
D|--------------------|the first half of the verse
A|--------------------|
E|-3---3----1---1-----|

Verse:
Now, during the second half of the verse, you switch to chords; The whole 
reason why your guitar was capo-ed!

Em7              D                  G    Cadd9
Her best days will be some of my worst

Em7                  D                     G      Cadd9
She finally met a man that's gonna put her first

Em7                   D                        G     Cadd9
While I'm wide awake she's got no trouble sleeping

Em7                D                      G     Cadd9
'Cuz when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven (even, no)

Chorus:
Cadd9        G                     D                   Em7
What am I supposed to do when the best part of me was always you

Cadd9       G                      D                 Em7
What am I supposed to say when I'm all choked up and you're ok
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/the_script/breakeven_tab_ver_3.html ]
Cadd9  G          D   Em7
    I'm falling to pieces ya

Cadd9  G          D   Em7 
    I'm falling to pieces

Verse 2:
e|--------------------|

G|----0---0---0---0---|Play Twice, then through the verse
D|--------------------|until: "'Cuz when a heart breaks
A|--------------------|no it don't breakeven"
E|-3---3----1---1-----|

Play chords on that final line:

Em7                D                      G     Cadd9
'Cuz when a heart breaks no it don't breakeven

Chorus:
Cadd9        G                     D                   Em7
What am I going to do when the best part of me was always you

Cadd9       G                      D                 Em7

    Em7                        D             
You got his heart and my heart and none of the pain

G                       Cadd9
You took your suitcase, I took the blame.
 
        Em7                       D           G      Cadd9
Now I'm trying to make sense of what little remains, oh

Cadd9 (strum all the way through this line)
Cos you left me with no love, no love to my name.

Cadd9       G                      D                 Em7
