----------- AS WE GO UP ----------- The chorus and verse are both arpeggiated barre chords. These are the notes I think they're playing, but the guitar is pretty hard to hear for most of the song Verse: G C E D e---3------------------------------------------------------------------| B------3--------5------------------------------------------------------| G-----------------5-------9--------7-----------------------------------| D---------------------------9--------7---------------------------------| A------------3-------3-7------7--5-------------------------------------| E-3-------3------------------------------------------------------------| Chorus: G C Bm C e----3-------------------2--------------------------------------------| B------3------5------------3------5-----------------------------------| G---------------5-------------------5---------------------------------| D---------------------------------------------------------------------| A-----------3------3--2------2--3-------------------------------------| E-3-------3-----------------------------------------------------------| For the bridge ("I speak in monotone...") play Bb and C, strummed normally. ------------ BLIMPS GO 90 ------------ The verse is a pretty simple little riff. Play this thing a few times: e------------------| B------------------| G------------------| D---4-------4------| A-2---2------------| E-------0-0---0----| Followed by: e----------------------------------------| B----------------------------------------| G----------------------------------------| etc. D---------------------------4-------4----| A----6-------6-----4------2--2-----------| E--4---4-4-4---0-2---2----------0-0---0--| ^ (This is kind of a grace note played as you move your fingers from the G#5 to F#5.) The transition from verse to chorus goes: e-------------------| B-------------------| G-------------------| D----4-----4--------| A--2---2-1---1-2----| E-------------------| The chorus is just two note power chords: G#5 F#5 E5 G#5 E5 F#5 The violin part is basically four notes played in different orders. e---11---9-----------| is the first riff; the violin plays these notes B-----------12---9---| throughout the rest of the song. -------------- CLOSER YOU ARE -------------- The verse is just a change between C and G barre chords. The chorus is G C Bm Bb A. For "Now you can see the boys" play C then B. (It might be C then G, I'm not really sure.) The "dreaming, scheming" riff is this: e-----0-0-0-------0-0-0-----------------------------------------------| B---0-------0---0-------0-----0-0-0-------0-0-0-----------------------| G---------------------------0-------0---0-------0---------------------| D---------------------------------------------------------------------| A-0-----------0-------------------------------------------------------| E-------------------------0-----------0-------------------------------| The last part goes like this: C G Csus2 e--3-----3----3---------------3----------------------3----------------| B--5----------3---------------3----3--3--3-----------3----------------| G--5--5----5--4---------------5-5-----------5--------4----------------| D--5----------5---------------5----------------------5----------------| A--3----------5---------------3----------------------5----------------| E-------------3--------------------------------------3----------------| I get up Seven o'clock Drive myself up to the lookout rock ------------ LITTLE WHIRL ------------ The verse riff is: D A G E G A The chorus is: G A End on A D. ----------- MY SON COOL ----------- The intro is: B D B D E The verse is: A D A F# E F# D B D And then repeat the intro. ---------- PIMPLE ZOO ---------- The first part is E then G. The break in between the two main parts is B G# D#. Then the final part is E then Db. [ Tab from: ] -------------- A SALTY SALUTE -------------- The guitar part to this is simply D and E. However, I think it sounds better to follow the baseline, especially if you're just playing alone. In that case, the chords are: D A D G F# E F# G. ------------------ WATCH ME JUMPSTART ------------------ The opening riff is 3 barre chords: E F# A F# E For the verse, I play the same chords, only leave the low E string open and alternate it with the chords like this: e-0-----0----------2-----2----------5------| B-0-----0----------2-----2----------5------| G-1-----1----------3-----3----------6------| D-2-----2----------4-----4----------7------| A-2-----2----------4-----4----------7------| E---0-0---0-0-...----0-0---0-0-...----0-0--| Followed by the main riff. For the "Shoot me down part" play E followed by A. Then, for "Cause I won't be around" play a Dbm. The little riff that goes on there is just the B string; while making the Dbm, lift your middle finger on and off, like this B-5-5-5-4-5. The rest of the bridge goes like this: F# E As you run from the places you love I remember the faces that cry C D C And they're pulling me back so I have to die Comments, corrections, etc. Special thanks to Dildozer
