transcribed by edmond hum (rlp@interlog.com)

Basic chords: Dmin, F, C (in weirdish shapes, tabs follow)

Fmaj            C           Dmin
e--O            e--O            e--1-|
b--1            b--1            b--3-|
g--2            g--O            g--2-|
d--3            d--2            d----|O
a--X            a--3            a--X-|
E--X            E--X            E--X-|


Riff:

Fmaj9           C              Dmin                 rep: Dmin
e--------O--O--|--------O--O--|--1--1--1----1----|
b--------1--1--|--------1--1--|--3--3--3----3----|
g-----2--2--O--|--------O--O--|--2--2--2pO--Oh2--|
d--3-----3--O--|-----2--2--O--|--O--O--O----O----|
a--------------|--3-----3--O--|------------------|
e--------------|--------------|------------------|


That vamped chord that comes between verses and before the middle 8 is
the Fmaj7

Here's the little fill-up that comes at the beginning and between verses:

Fmaj7
e--O--O--O--3p2pO-----------O--|
b--1--1--1---------3--O--3-----|
g--2--2--2---------------------|
d--3--3--3---------------------|
a--X--X--X---------------------|
E--X--X--X---------------------|
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/throwing_muses/pearl_tab_ver_2.html ]
So the verse would be like: (forgive me for I'm doing this from memory
and I'll definitly get the lyrics wrong)


Fmaj7       C
        Hot hands

Dmin

Fmaj7       C
        Move me

Dmin

Fmaj7       C   D
        I write on these walls

Fmaj7       C   D
        I have no heart at all F7:F7 ?
Fmaj7 (vamp to fill)

You get the picture.

As for the bridge, it's a pretty simple ascending line, but fuck me if I
can figure out the bleeding key, though I think it's from A so:

A - B - C - D

All majors, and each last for a full measure before changing.  If you have
any better ideas, please tell me.  I haven't figured out the solos, I
tend just to go a touch off my head and improvise, but I'll work on it and
get you that in the future.

Another hint, I know Kristen plays it like I wrote it above, but when I
first started work on it I played a slightly (only very) different way,
that was easier and sounded smashing:

Simply substitute these chords for the original ones (same root):

F6          C9          D9
e--O            e--O            e----|O
b--3            b--3            b--3-|
g--2            g--O            g--2-|
d--3            d--2            d--0-|
a--X            a--3            a--X-|
E--X            E--X            E--X-|
