Fast Car Tab

   
Tracey Chapman - Fast Car

I tabbed this from the CD, and can play it with the CD and it sounds right, i have found
others that weren't really good and a mission to play.  So i got pissed off and tabbed it
myself.  FIRST OF ALL the crucial part, CAPO on fret 2.  I have two version, both the
same notes, the second version are for those who prefer to hold chord structures.  The
chord structure is written above in brackets.  Didn't do the timing though, too lazy,
but play along with the song, and you will pick it up instantly.

VERSION ONE
here is the main riff that is played

e---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--0-h-1--0-s-3----3*-------10--9---9*--------------------------------------|
G---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--3------------------------9---7-------------------------------------------|
E-------------3-------------------------------------------------------------|

here is the riff that is played that has got the funny extra bit in. quite simple really
e---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B--0-h-1--0-s-3----3*-------10--12--10--9--10----9----0-h-1---0-s-3-----3*--|
G-----------------------------------------------------------------0---------|
D---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A--3------------------------9---10---9--7---9----7----3---------------------|
E-------------3---------------------------------------------------3---------|

* The preceeding note is to be played as softly.

VERSION TWO
[ Tab from: http://www.guitartabs.cc/tabs/t/tracy_chapman/fast_car_tab_ver_4.html ]
if you find yourself not liking the above version, try this one, also CAPO on fret 2.
   (C)                 (CADD9) (D)
e---------------------------3--2---2*-----------|
B--0-h-1--0-s-3----3*---------------------------|
G-----------------------------------------------|
D---------------------------2--0----------------|
A--3--------------------------------------------|
E-------------3---------------------------------|
* The preceeding note is to be played as softly.

Again the little riff.
   (C)                 (CADD9) (?) (CADD9) (D) (CADD9) (D)
e---------------------------3---5----3------2-----3-----2----------------------------|
B--0-h-1--0-s-3----3*------------------------------------------0-h-1---0-s-3-----3*--|
G--------------------------------------------------------------------------0---------|
D---------------------------2---4----2------0-----2-----0----------------------------|
A--3---------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E-------------3------------------------------------------------------------3---------|

* The preceeding note is to be played as softly.

Thats all all the riffs down, all two of them.

The Chorus

C     G    CADD9   D
e-0   e-3   e-3   e-2------|
B-1   B-3   B-3   B-3------|
G-0   G-0   G-0   G-2------|     x - means not strummed.
D-2   D-0   D-2   D-0------|
A-3   A-2   A-3   A-x------|
E-x   E-3   E-x   E-x

then i cant figure out the next bit of the chorus.  Sorry, but i think i goes
something like, CADD9, C, CADD9, C (follows after the D).

But there it is.  I tried, it sounds perfect, its easy to play.
