Silverchair Chords & Tabs

Version: 2 Type: Tab

Without You Tab

Without You: Silverchair
Taken from the album: Diorama

I think the album version was recorded in the same tuning as emotion sickness, 
but it's a pain in the arse having to fart around all the time with a tuner. 
So I came up with this. I think its pretty much spot on, although there are one or two parts, 
which might need tweaking slightly.

if anyone can do better. post a new version

Ab |-5-5-5-/-9-x-x--2h4---2h4---2p0----2-----2-3--|
Db |-5-5-5-/-9-x-x--2h4---2h4---2p0----------2-3--|

If your playing this in a band, during the first part of the outro get the player to bash out the verse chords (the D riffs) while the lead play the single notes out over the top… and the both players come in for the second part. Play the above piece 4 times and then go into this. End on D
