Since some people have been asking for them, I will give you the chords tabs and whatnot that I know. I'm just going to go for the chord progressions for now. If/when a tab spot gets set up I will do a more in-depth job.

Great Ghosts-
A* 54XXXX
G#* 47XXXX
F#m 244222
E 022100
Dmaj7 XX0222
D XX0232

And the progression goes A*, G#*, F#m, E, Dmaj7, E, D (as soon as he starts singing)

(More to come later, I just wanted to get that on as soon as possible. Sorry about not having the little fills yet, but like I said as soon as the tab page is up, if it does go up I'll put the full thing on there)

THE GLOW (note: didn't have sheet music so might not be right)


F
The glow...

C
Followed by...

Bm Am
Oh... ...oh

Am Am7
The snowy blow

repeat.


this isn't accurate at all, but this is what I like to play when it is the glow's narration:

e-----3 repeat a bunch, then
B---1--
G 0----

e-------3
B---1----
G--------- etc. repeat.
D 3-------

end on C chord ("I started to glow)

then it is C and F about a trillion times.

I'll go into specific fills later.

wow. your way to play I want wind to blow completely dominates my way.

Posted by: Billthepirate June 15, 2005 03:25 am
thanks, I'm going to try to get all of the glow pt. 2 (album) on here in the next week or so, I've prettymuch got it all figured out.

Posted by: EndOfRadio June 15, 2005 12:17 pm
If you guys want to decide on one particular style for the way the Tabs are laid out, I can get to work on setting up the section.

Posted by: Billthepirate June 15, 2005 09:55 pm
I personally like the Lyrics/chords layout (if that is what you're talking about). With a tab box for riffs and such. Of course how much I'll need of each will depend on the song.

http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/tabs/m/microphones/the_glow_part_2_tab.htm

Something along the lines of that, but don't use that one, it's not really all that good.

Posted by: Billthepirate June 15, 2005 10:00 pm
...also, if any of you want to have a song tab'd or chorded, just mention it and I'll try to get it on as soon as possible.

Posted by: brad June 16, 2005 03:20 pm
I agree with Billthepirate's idea.

as for a song, how about you'll be in the air? absolutely love that song, but I hate trying to figure that one out. thanks alot!

Posted by: Billthepirate June 16, 2005 09:57 pm
I'm just going to do the chords, tabing it would take way to long. They are fingerpicked, and if you listen to the song you can figure out the pattern.
(Everything is a barre chord)

C#m
You'll be in the air...
E
And in some hours you'll be over the sea,
F#
Lost in the other passengers on the plane.
A
But if you just moved your arms then you could tell
(octaves) C#(m), B, A, G#(m), E
That you are in the air.
E
You'd feel the yawning gulf grow wide,
F#
And you'd feel the dwindling fuel for your lungs,
A
So your breaths would be slow.
(octaves) C#(m), B, A, G#(m), E
And You'd be in the air.
E
You'd feel the hot blowing rock filled winds,
F#
The clouds of ash would fill your skies!
A---------------------------C#m
As you smoothly glide over the cold river basin
C#m
Where we spend the night again.
E
Your gaping gap is pink in foggy light,
F#
When I wake up,
F#
Your pet will pounce,
F#
I'll meet the day
A
I'll be in your bed,
A
You'll be in the air, when I'm awake.
(octaves) C#(m), B, A, G#(m), E
Can you tell that I'm down here?
E
Can you feel my hot lung's wind?
F#----------------------------------------------------A, (octaves) C#(m), B, A, G#(m), E,
When you smelt my skin did you lose yourself?
(Chords) E, F#, A

(octaves) C#(m), B, A, G#(m), E
I'll look pinkly out your window in the fog,
E
Loud and clear,
E
I'll make out your resounding roar.
C#m
You'll be in the air.
E
You'll bear fruit,
F#
Your bare feet,
A ------------------------C#m
Your bare arms in the heat.
E ------------F#-----------------C#m
You'll be able to feel your might!


Sounds alright to me

here is how to play "The Sun" and part of "III The Universe"

Posted by: headlesshorseman June 18, 2005 06:48 pm
Does anyone know how to play I say "No"?

Posted by: Billthepirate June 18, 2005 10:40 pm
"I say "NO""

Chords
Dm x53xxx
C x35xxx
F 13xxxx
Bb x13xxx


Some people say
Dm---------------------------------C
"Arise! Arise! Arise! Live friend live!"
---------F
I say: "Die."
---------C---------Bb
I say: "Shade yourself."
----------Dm--------------------C--------------------F
I say: "Shine what precious light you have into caves,
-------------------------C-------Bb
And when it dies out stay in there"
Dm------------------------------------------C-------F
I say "find life where you foolishly saw graves."

Some people say to "Try and try and try!
Fight and save yourself!"
I say: "Give".
I say "Send them off."
I say "Shed whatever husk if you are ripe,
And if you're not, be fragrant then"
I say: "Give. No matter how it hurts, give in!"
Some people say "The sky! The sky! The sky!
Have you noticed it"
I close my eyes, I say nothing now.
There's a ringing in my ears that's faint and high,
And when I listen close to it, it says:


It just repeats the chord progression.

thank you kindly. i have been playing the guitar for years now I have just never gotten the figuring out other songs thing down.

The Blow Pt.2

Intro: C Am F G

C
Oh, Mikaela you have burned me
Am
You have taken me and turned me
F G
Into a cloud of smoke lost on a humming wind
C
Were we wrestling or were we hugging?
Am
And these backpacks we were lugging
F
What deep damage we have done
G
You were my friend
C
And though the last three years were sunny
Am
Thunder clouds shaded my tummy
F
Now let the breeze be felt
G
Let go of my pale skin
Am
Oh, the blow
C
Oh, the blow you have my hunger
Am
You have my quake you have my thunder
F
And when I turned to go
G
You took my best friend
C
You omnivore devouring blindly
Am
I heard your slurping sounds behind me
F G
As I ran you took the joy of giving in
C
I give up on your dark looming
Am
I see you I say goodbye human
F
Now give him back give it back
G Am
I want my own wind to blow.

I Felt My Size

C Fm
the heat from the closeness of me tilting towards the sun
Am G
storing up to ignite the night and light up
C Fm
the coldness of the cave the billowy flames lit up my face
Am G
the thinning smoke hung in the branches waiting for wind
F Fm
my front was warm, the cold backs of my arms
Am G
never felt the dawn, the night was long
C Fm
when the real dawn came i saw it crawl over the hill
Am G
and i felt clean and shook my hair out in the light
C Fm
i looked up and hurt my eyes on the painful powerful sky
Am G
i looked down and felt motion under me
C Fm
i looked out across the freeway at the people flying by
Am G
and turned my head, i closed my eyes, i felt my size
F Fm
i recalled my fire, and my lack of dawn
Am G
my one sided warmth, i just wanted more
C Fm
but i'm small, i'm not a planet at all
Am G C
i'm small, i'm small, we are all

Agreed, this is great! I'm having a great time playing (trying to, at least) a bunch of these.

Can anyone do Wooly Mammoth's Mighty Absence?

Or that sea-shanty sounding one? Don't know the name...

I know that Sand (Eric's Trip) is pretty much all C major, and D first inversion(notes that make this up are B, D, G), A major and then G major.

That's it besides the addtion of an Inverted C(same notes that make up a C just "inverted") at the end of the song.

I haven't tried to take on the task of figuring out too many more songs. I can't play guitar yet, although I can play a ukelele and I can play piano/keyboard and a slew of other intruments.
---------------------------------------
(the lowercase letters above the words are the one note leads that I play in the song, the big letters are the chords, and when a lower case letter is side by side a capitol letter, the note and the chord are mean't to be played simultaneously: of course these notes need to be an octave higher than the chord.)

Sorry if my tab is confusing, number one I play by ear(even though I know the notes and chords, I still can't read music) and I also play piano and am not quite ready to learn songs on guitar. But notes are the same pretty much everywhere, so i hope this helps.

EDIT #4857293484728 = Also sorry about the underscores, it's the only way I could get the chords to be inysnc with the words they come in on.

free tab editor


or you can just do it by hand in courier new

Posted by: EndOfRadio June 29, 2005 01:08 pm
Right, I'm doing the Tablature section ("Be The Mount") all this week, so I need you guys to help me out considering I know nothing about tabs or playing guitar.

Can anyone take all the songs contributed here and put them in one set, unified format? (eg. that one that looks like:
|------------------7-7-7-7-7-3-3-3-3-0-0-0-0-|
|---7----7----7----7-7-7-7-7-3-3-3-3-0-0-0-0-| etc)

That would be fabulous if it's possible, since it just looks smarter if everything is formatted the same.
Many thanks fellas and ladies, you guys rock.

Posted by: Billthepirate June 29, 2005 05:07 pm
the things is (I don't blame you for not knowing this, given that you don't play guitar), that some songs work a lot better just playing straight up chords, so, both for someone writing it out, and someone reading/playing it it works better if it's the one that looks like:

A Bm
blah blah blah blah

G Qb
shubba shubba shuuuu!

I know that I wouldn't mind if there was a variety how the tabs/chords are set up, as long as they're all correct and look nice.

You'd be hard pressed to find a guitar tab site that doesn't have a huge variety in how the tabs are set up. I think it's just something that's hard to control.

You'd be hard pressed to find a guitar tab site that doesn't have a huge variety in how the tabs are set up. I think it's just something that's hard to control.

Cool, okay, well if you think that's best go for that.

this sounds more precise than the other version that was posted, but, the other one is a thousand times easier.. how on earth do you stretch your fingers to play that final chord? goldenemotes_1.gif i can't seem to play that chord..

i try to play it like this (im not going to tab it out because the bass notes stay the same.. its a little bit easier to me, but i don't know if its better

Agreed, the one I did isn't in the right key, but I find it a lot easier to play. Precision isn't really a phil elverum trait anyway. I was glad to see the other version though, it does sound a little better.

The Pull

A?- X00220- not sure what this chord is called
B- X244XX -i think this sounds better for this song
C#- X466XX
D- X577XX
E- X799XX

intro- A?

B A?
My body stopped moving and quickly got cold

A? B
I made my escape through exhaling lungs

B C# D E A?
And watched my body rot .... away

A?
And no body noticed my misty escape

A?
And I ended up floating like water in the air

A? B
To the blowy ocean side above the pounding of waves

C# D E A?
That's where you showed up on the foggiest day.

B A? A (play a regular a chord now)
From high above you I saw your earthling body wrapped in wool.

B A? A
The glow surrounds you and when you breathed in I felt the pull.


Outro- A B


Also, I think an easy way to play Sand (eric's trip) is just C G Am G and an F at the end of the chorus.

let's get some more tabs up here, this is a great reference. whoever tabbed out "I Want Wind To Blow," you rock. here's my contribution:

Phil Elvrum's Will

(the G's and C's are only halfway strummed, i think. and don't pay attention to the way i set up the rhythm, because i'm fairly certain it's wrong.)

intro (i'm pretty sure this part is finger picked the same way it is in "I Want Wind To Blow," but this is the lazy way):
E:---------------------------------------------------------------------------
B:---------------------------------------------------------------------------
G:---------------------------------------------------------------------------
D:-------5--4-------------2------------------------------------------------

E:---------------------------------------333--23--------------------------

i want wind

---------------G-----G---G---C-C-C---G
i'll trade the traffic for the roaring waves

--------------G------G--G---C----C-C--G
i'll travel around to all the beautiful places

*riff--------------------------------------------------
or if i die in this van, and someone finds this page

-----------G--G--G--C-----C---C--G
let my voice blow out in a salty spray

----------G--------G--G-----C--------C---C----------G
let my friends blow salty tears at the sound of my name

*riff-----------------------------------------
in either case, take me out of my case

----------G----G-G---C------C----C--------------G
let my eyes reflect distance let me live long days

*riff--------------------------------------------
or if i die in this car or if i drown in a plane

------------G--------G----G----C---C---- G
let my grieving friends feel freed and brave

--------G------G----G-------C--------C---C--------G
and go all the time to the beach to picture my face

Tabs section is up on the main site now. But it needs many more of your wonderful contributions, so keep posting them here, and I'll stick them up!

Posted by: orphan July 11, 2005 10:37 pm
im just gonna do this all by hand since i cant find any tab helping apps for macintosh.

maybe ill go by album? i dunno, heres a bunch of newer songs i guess.
these might be slightly different then the way you've heard them played by phil. these are how i like to play them, cause they sound nice to me, but they're basically the same.

if the notes appear to be in a chord formation but there a lil off, i duno how to fix that but yea, there chords if there real close together

also for most of these whereer he strums a chord, i just put the chord once. tabbing manually the strum pattern is real time consuming.

this song is so nice.

he does difference things with little notes every time i hear this.

the song is basically just these chords.

I'm re-doing great ghosts so that it the lyrics are with it.

Great Ghosts-
A* 54XXXX
G#* 47XXXX
F#m 244222
E 022100
Dmaj7 XX0222
D XX0232


A-G#-----F#m--------------------E
I had my hopes of how I would be
-----------------Dmaj7
After living in exile,
----------------------E----------riff--D
After closing your eyes to me.

A-G#----------F#m---------------------------E
I even wrote scenes where I re-emerged boldly,
--------------------------------Dmaj7
Bearded, alive and Eskimo eyed,
---------------------E-----riff--D
New baby on my back.

A-------------G#-------F#m-----------------------------E
But I didn't count the fact that I have ghosts in my mind,
E
Stowaways,
----------------------Dmaj7---------------------E
Great ghosts of my life, great ghosts of old wives.
--------------D
And they're howling!

A------G#-------F#m---------------------E
So I spent my wilderness time rolling on the ground
------------------------------------Dmaj7
Pulling my hair and wrestling them off,
------------E
Yelling at no-one,
-----riff-----D
Punching snow.

A---G#-----F#m---------------------E
I gathered ghosts and gave them a lecture,
E
I bid them away,
-----------------Dmaj7
I pleaded and cried:
-------------E----------------------------------------------D
"There's no room in my life for you, or you or your howling!

A----------G#--------F#m-----------------------------E
Let me undo these ropes and go on living without you,
-------------------------Dmaj7
not just change where I live.
--------------E
Oh go on, get!" I said.

A---G#-----F#m--------------------E
I had my hopes, of how I would be after sending them off,
-------------------Dmaj7
After getting set free.
-----------------------E------------------------------D
But there's no such thing as living without their prowling.

A--G#-------F#m-------------------------E
As you can see, having descended the hill,
E
I still look like me,
---------------Dmaj7
I still wallow like Phil,
--------------E----riff--D
And forever will.

A--G#-------------F#m-------------------------------E
I'm teaming with ghosts and I'm still whining for wives,
--------------------------------------Dmaj7
Bidding my brow, but now I've surrendered.
---------------------E
In fact i've joined in.
E
Listen close...
-------------------D
You can hear us howling!

REQUESTS:

Lanterns (I guess live?)
I lost my wind

thanks!

Posted by: i am jacks username July 12, 2005 01:59 am
Lanterns (live) is easy

Lanterns:

G:----------------------------------------------5---
D:----------------------------------------------5---
A:-------------------------------------------------------
E:-1-1---8/---3--3---12--10--8--7----5--5-------5---

sometimes he'll do this:
G:---------------------------------------------5---
D:---------------------------------------------5---
A:-------------------------------------------------------
E:-1-1---8/---3--3---10h12--8--7----5--5-------5---

he just changes the riffs around with those four notes though.

as for chords, i'm pretty sure it's just:
F G Am the whole time.

that's the chords the riff is based off of as well.

Posted by: Supplies July 12, 2005 04:32 am
The really basic structure of I Lost My Wind is just C F Am and G or C Fmaj7 Am G. Not sure which one sounds better. Just noodle around from there.

ive tried so many times. i tabbed abnnch of songs out manually using courier new but the lines are more fucked up than ever. how can i make this work!

Posted by: orphan July 13, 2005 12:12 am
even tho i cant figure out how to get them nice looking and even. heres another i just did. i think there even enough for the sheriff to post anyway. i hope, hehe.

I KNOW NO ONE

the beginning is just these three chords.

a -0--2--3--
e -1--3--5--

the end is the same three but he adds this one

d --0--
a --2--

this part is so sweet. its the thing he repeatsa bunch of times after he says "what does mount eerie mean?" i put "( )" around the notes that are chords, in case you there not perfectly straight.

--------------------------------------------
--------------------------------------------
----------------------0-(2)----------------
-(5)^2-0--------0-2-------------(3)------
-(3)------0--(3)-------(3)-2---0------(3)-
--------------(5)-------------3---(1)--(5)-

^ - pull off

* try and let all the existing notes ring as you move to each chord/note. it sounds so good.

Let's Get Out Of The Romance:

verse riff:
G--5-----------------4-----------------2--------------------------------|

occasionally he'll play the note on the 'g' string more than once, but you should be able to figure it out.

chords that lead in to the chorus:

Em (x79987)
Em7 (x79787)

then the chorus:

Am (577555)
G (355433)
F (133211)
Em (x79987)
Em7 (x79787)

that's it. simple.

...this probably seems a little confusing in writing, mainly because of the tricky strumming pattern. here's a quick recording i made of me playing the part, twice through the verse and twice through with the chorus-type part (just forgive the poor recording quality and slightly out of tune guitar).

There is a version above. But i'd like to see another.
There are programs you can use but i don't know anything about them.
I'd reccomend the lines with chords or manually showing the tab as shown in "the moan" above.
Thanks in advance.

ICE!

this is based off a radio show phil did with mirah, its basically the same as the It Was Hot version

Dm
A____________G_______F______E_______
The heat came down and breathing got clear
Dm
(There was water in your hair)
**REPEAT the A G F E Dm
And the sun came out, we had to get back in.
The fog burned off and finally I felt near!
(Sunlight made reflections on your skin)
To the place i like to stay
(But the year went on and it got too cold to swim)

So I stayed beneath as the water above me froze,
From under the ice I saw you in warm clothes.
And now I'm thawing out while the fire you made grows.

The basics of I Whale go like this....I think....
C F C
So I set out on the sea,
C F G
With a little fruit for me,
G F G
And I shot a harpoon for the whale that I'm hunting,
C F C
The fine women on the shore,
C F G
They called out "give us more!"
G F G
But I have nothing to give (as if I did before)
C F C
Before my house burned down last night,
C F G
And I killed my friend in a fight,
G F G
And so like I said, I've had a lousy morning light,
C F C
To see if I could see a shape come from the sea,
C F G
Or hear it's song of love taunting me.
Am
And though I know I'm getting some,
G
My fingers are getting numb,
F G
Will I sit and watch the cold waves toss over me?
Am
And I've been out here sixty days,
G
And there's no sign of spout or spray,
F G
And now cold dark night falls down, across flat black sea
C F C
In the calm I close my eyes
C F G
Placid unstarry skies,
G F G
I lean back on the back on the edge of my boat, And I've closed my eyes.

Dont know the chords/he doesnt use any
But with a 'thump' 'thump' beneath my boat,
"Oh my God!" watch the water rise,
Am G
And storms raged in my skiff crumbles,
F G
And a whale's grace assails and humbles,
Am
It says: "Knock knock! Toodle-oo!
G
You know it's you!
F
Look over the edge, You'll see my white mouth,
G
It's me the whale!"
Am
Saying: "Hey Phil it's me!
G
Look deep in my mouth and see,
F G
I'm your heart, I'm a whale. I live on the bottom of the dark black sea.
Go limp diving"

wow thank you that is amazing

Any have the tabs/chords to "Between Your Ear And The Other Ear"?

The chords seems simple, but I can't find them.

Any help would be appreciated since you all did great jobs with the other songs.

Posted by: i am jacks username August 03, 2005 11:27 pm
for 'between your ear'...

the beginning riff is just an F# scale. i really don't remember exactly how the riff goes, but it's simple to figure out. it starts kinda like
a---1
e-2-4---2 ..... and so forth from there.

maybe i'll edit this when i'm not so lazy.

the chord part is tricky cause he has like 50 guitars layed and they're all playing variations of a B to B/Bb.

some of them are:
variation 1: x2x002 to x1x002
variation 2: x24xxx to x14xxx
variation 3: 799xxx to 699xxx

Posted by: the0208 August 04, 2005 06:06 pm
Thanks everyone. I think I could produce a simple tab example of "between your ear and the other ear"

Posted by: the0208 August 04, 2005 06:12 pm
BETWEEN YOUR EAR AND THE OTHER EAR


INTRO
e-----------------
B-----------------
G-----------------
D-----------------
A---------7-6-4-6-
E-0-2-4-0---------

Then the two chords, like Jack up there said:

e-----------------
B-----------------
G-----------------
D--999-9999-------
A--999-9999-------
E--777-6666-repeat

That seems to be all I can figure, I wish I could understand how to make it as complex as the record. Octaves? Overdubbing?

Could someone do Human Human off of Singers?

I play by ear and I can't listen to it in my room because of no CD Burner, plus this is one I actually want to buy. If someone told me the chords I could play it on piano.

Posted by: Eric August 05, 2005 05:00 pm
I've always been curious as to how to play Antlers, although I'm probably just being lazy and could figure it out on my own.

Posted by: britishben August 07, 2005 11:29 am
I'd recommend people use Power Tab editor (power-tab.net). The timings can take a little getting used to, but it's a great way to make tabs. I'd also like to suggest that the tabbers are able to post a Powertab version of their plaintext tabs, it helps out a lot for a non-musician like myself goldenemotes_5.gif.

A note to the site's submitter, please leave more of the post in when transferring tabs to the site. For instance, From Wind's tab of "Sand (Eric's Trip)" makes very little sense without his explanation of an "inverted D", with which i believe he means a Dsus4.

Also, I'd like to point out this version of "I Felt Your Shape". http://ofadam.com/steve/ifeltyourshape.htm
I didn't write this version, but I think it sounds nicer. Not to knock the submitter of the version here, but I think this version is also the more accurate.

Yeah, agreed.

Considering I can't read music, and that I play piano not guitar(at least not as well)

Posted by: blake_coop August 16, 2005 08:07 pm
can anybody make out all of 'i hold nothing?' i figured out the picking part ('the way the world rolls on...,' it's also the majority of the song when played live), but if anybody can figure out the chords that are played at the beginning of the acoustic guitar part (generous world suggest generous living...), that would be great.

Can someone please tell me the chords for Human, Human? I'm pretty sure it's the same chords on the version of Singers than it is on any other version, but all I need is the chords and I could figure out the song. I plan on playing this song for my church, so the sooner the better, it would be MUCH appreciated.

Thanks, erm, but I play piano so that doesn't really tell me anything.

Could you just tell me the name of the chords?

Posted by: schoolfriend August 25, 2005 11:12 pm
The chords would be like...D/A, C#m/G#, Bm/F#, A, Bm/F#, A, (single notes) G-F#

Posted by: From Wind August 27, 2005 12:16 am
Thanks but I do beleive those are incorrect.

D sounds right, that's what I've been playing, but the others don't sound right.

Anyone who plays piano, please help.

Posted by: brad August 27, 2005 12:24 am
these are the chords:

D, C#m, B (with an F# root), A, B (F#), A, G, f#

and it sounds right on the guitar. I haven't tried playing it on the piano yet though.

Crap, then someone needs to teach me how to play it because evidently the way i play the chords are wrong. I even looked them up to make sure I was forming the chords right and I am so I am clueless.

What is that supposed to mean "darling"?

I am clueless because I am doing the chords I have been told and, to me, it doesn't sound right. And I know the chords I am forming, I am forming them right. So what I'm trying to figure out is where lies the mistake. And it doesn't help that I play piano and everyone else has been playing guitar so far. And I am listening to the SINGERS version and they could be listening to another.

Posted by: Billthepirate August 27, 2005 08:27 pm
I play the chords D,A,Bm,A,Bm,A,G,G/F# repeat, obviously there you'll need to take into account the tempo.

are those chords, like say, the D played with both the left and right hands, or do you play the D with your left and then play an A with your right?

If anyone could tell me that and maybe write the chords above the lyrics it goes with it would be awesome.

Posted by: Billthepirate August 28, 2005 02:10 am
that's just how I play it on guitar, I'm not sure how to play it on piano. I wish my discman wasn't broken so I could figure it out though.

Okay, the Tabs section (http://mounteerie.trivialbeing.net/tabs.php) is updated with all your superb contributions - thank you guys and gals!

Also, would you like a Tabs / Chords sub-forum? That way it doesn't all have to be cluttered into one topic, and it can include other bands too.

that very well could be.
im not positive and i dont have any formal training so i was playing
G# as a power chord -

e-
B-
G-
D-6
A-6
E-4

and this also sounded ok to me


e-
B-
G-5
D-6
A-6
E-4

what do you think?

Posted by: Billthepirate November 05, 2005 08:48 pm
I'm pretty sure you mean G#m F# E. I don't mean to pull out the old theory stuff, but it's a 6, 5, 4 progression in the key of B. Also in let's get out of the romance, ziggy stardust and the spiders from mars, stairway to heaven, all along the watchtower...

Posted by: idigahole November 16, 2005 09:58 pm
Hey, I was wondering about the Sand (Eric's Trip) tab. First, what is meant by "Dv1"? I'm just a beginner so I don't know every chord. I also looked in my chord book and online and couln't find it. Can someone make a diagram of it for me?

Also, the other chords don't sound correct and it also sounds like there's something else after G chord in the verse.

Can someone help me out with this and maybe post a correct tab or explain the Dv1 chord at least?

Thanks.

Posted by: Billthepirate November 16, 2005 11:52 pm
I admit to not knowing how that tab was put together. It makes no sense to me at all. the progression is bassically C, G, Am, G over and over, except for the "from the knife in your hand to my..." line which goes to F before the pattern starts again. I hope that helps.

The heat from the closeness of me tilting towards the sun

Storing up to ignite the night and light up
      C                                                Fm
The coldness of the cave the billowy flames lit up my face
                    Am                                                          G
The thinning smoke hung in the branches waiting for wind
                      F                                          Fm
My front was warm, the cold backs of my arms

Never felt the dawn, the night was long

When the real dawn came I saw it crawl over the hill
                Am                                                G
And I felt clean and shook my hair out in the light
              C                                          Fm
I looked up and hurt my eyes on the painful powerful sky

I'm small, I'm small, we are all



oohhh, the formating gets all messed up. bummer. let me try to fix it.

ok, think i fixed it.

dang, still off.

alright, got it. hahah, that was a pain in the butt.

nevermind, its still off. and i tabbed it wrong, i had it right the first time hahah. one second.

ok i give up. its alot closer now though. just i think like, a G, a couple of the Fm's, an A, maybe a couple others are a little off. not by alot though. if an Fm is like...inbetween words, its supposed to be at the beginning of the word in front of it. if that makes any sense.

I already posted this in another topic and figured I'd add it here since it seems to be the definitive tab section.

Alright, this is a start, someone with a much better ear than mine might be able to both build off of this/figure out when each chord goes where. For reference I am using Dionises, Chicago Track 9 from bootlegs section. Phil pretty much gives you the chords note by note in the intro.
Here are different chords for intro, and with a little patience you can find where they go in the song:
-0--0--x--0--0--0--0
-1--0--x--0--1--3--0
-2--4--0--0--2--4--2
-2--2--3--2--2--0--2
-0--2--0--2--0--2--3
-x--3--1--0--x--x--0

I'm no good at theory, but my best guess at what it is:
Am
Inverted-Em
F(add 2?)
Em
Am
Bm
Inverted Am

If someone would clean that up, that'd be awesome.

can anybody make out all of 'i hold nothing?' i figured out the picking part ('the way the world rolls on...,' it's also the majority of the song when played live), but if anybody can figure out the chords that are played at the beginning of the acoustic guitar part (generous world suggest generous living...), that would be great.

I Hold Nothing
(the song basically consists of three chords, Cm, Gm and G#)
Cm

Cm---------------------Gm-------
Your love swells and pounds me
-----------------------------------------G#-------
And I know nothing know that I know you
------------------------------------------------Gm
My face goes blank, my eyes go open gates
--------------------------Cm----------------------Gm
and the world can go in, and the world can stay
------------------G#----------------------Gm--
and make us wealthy, and can take away
---------------------------------------------------------------G#------
I hold nothing, now that I hold nothing, now that I hold you
-----------------------------------------
there's no place to use our money
--------------G#------------------Gm---------------------------Cm----
Where we live, the generous world suggests generous living,
----------Gm-----------------------G#-----------------------Gm
So we live under the low wide branches of the oldest tree,
---------- Cm------------Gm
On the dune or in the hay,

Where we will stay for so long, so slow,
---------------------Cm------------------Gm-----------G#--------------------Gm--
That the careful birds will relax and make black nests in your black hair,
-------------Cm------------------------Gm
And walk around beneath my still feet
---------------------G#-----------------------------------Gm-----
And we will only notice the play of the world for a moment,
-------------------Cm--------------------------Gm----------------G#---------------------
Then let it roll on, the way the world rolls on (we will only notice the world for a
Gm
moment)

(repeat "the way the world rolls on...")

CODE

IV. Mt. Eerie

tabbed from 'live at pete's candy store' and 'the singing from mount eerie'. on the album there's not much guitar in these parts.

intro
[Am][G][F]

[Am] [G]                [F]
Your legs walked your heart high

            [Am]              [G]        [F]
Your whole body is sprawling out. Major view, wide.

        [Am]         [G]            [F]     [G quickly]
I'm on a boulder over alpine tops, on peaking,

[Am]                      [G]          [F]
I watched you cross the water in the evening

[Am]  [G]                     [F]               [G quickly]
In my eye, your greys and blues were blonde.

[Am]                      [G]  [F]         [G quickly]
Something that I held onto is leaving,

[Am]                 [G]              [F]        [G quickly]
The shape to what I saw has slowly grown,

(on the album version  the following chords follow the next line in the sequence, so 'get higher on your hill' is in the chord of F instead of G, and there's no guitar)

                            [Am]
So your black cloud will come,

                            [G]
So your black cloud will come,

                         [F]
And press you to the ground,

                          [G]
The air will leave your chest

                                  [Am]
Your faith and where you're found,

                         [G]
You're finally standing still

                           [F]
And your fingers all go numb,

                     [G]
Get higher on your hill

                                  [Am]
So your big black cloud will come

repeat however many times is necessary

[G#m]
See what happens?

[F#]
Do you see what happens,

[E]
When big black death

[E]
breathes on you with his breath?

[G#m] [F#] [E] [F#]

[G#m]                  [F#]      
I'm wild and woolly and a bloating bully,

[E]                         [F#]
I'll strike you down and then,

                     [G#m]
I'll strike you down again

Do you see what happens?

[F#]
Do you see what happens

[E]                         [F#]
when I peel away your bark

                              [G#m] [F#] [E] [F#] [G#m]
And stain your blue sky dark?

                        [F#]
Your breath I take to live,

                        [E]
Your death I ache to give

                  [F#]
So take it in and crumble,

                        [G#m]
Be smothered in my rumble,

                       [F#]
A flash! and thunder booms!

                     [E]
Our lack of wonder looms,

                      [F#]
I'll press you to the ground,

                                  [G#m]
Your fate from where you're found,

[F#] [E] [F#] [G#m] [F#] [E] [F#] [G#m]


'vultures' by Karl Blau

the guitar goes (vaguely) like this:

A--3-3-3/5\2----0-2-3---------
E------------3---------1--5\3/5--

then changes to this bass line:

A--7-5-3-2-0---
E--------------3-

then the guitar comes back in with karl's vocals

Posted by: Billthepirate September 09, 2006 09:31 pm
concerning I want wind to blow. during that part he's just playing the bass note of the whole fingerpicking thing on the tab. I didn't bother typing that out.

Posted by: Jack__ October 16, 2006 05:21 pm
so i'm new to the forum but i joined to post my verion of "The Glow Part 2." for whoever wants it. i know it's been done but this is a pretty simple and accurate way to play it.


the intro is basically just -- Fm -- Cm -- C# with power chords sounding fine for it


for the verse you can use this progression all the way from "i took my shirt off in the yard" to "theres no end" the only thing that varies is timing, which you can figure out by listening to it


Em --> Bm --> Cmaj7

i play this for the Cmaj7 to match up with the song

E---0000000000000000--
B---0000000000000000--
G---0000000000000000--
D---2000200020002000--
A---3333333333333333--
E----------------------------

that will take you all the way through the song basically until the outro which goes like this...

E------------------------------
B-------------------------------
G-------------------------------
D--------0----0-------0----0---
A-------------------------------
E---0/3----3—--0/3----3-----

E------------------------------------
B------------------------------------
G---------4-----0---------------0---
D-------------------------4----------
A---0/2-----2-----0/2-------2------
E------—----------------------------

E----------------------------------------
B---------0---------------0-------------
G--------------0-----------------0------
D----------------------------------------
A---2/3-----3------2/3------3----------
E------—-------------------------------- x2


the second part varies a little bit each time, but stays relatively the same

Funny thing, I asked him to play this in Novato and he had forgotten it.

The only part I've figured out so far is that it's pretty much a C chord but you just play different bass notes like in the song so it goes, C-D-E-F-G and then other stuff

The Dead of Night


Em-----F#m--------G---------------D--G----D
I woke up in the dead of night oh wide eyed.
Em-----------f#M---------G------D--G--D
No light, no shape, no sound, but I died.
Em--------F#m-----------G-------D--G---D
Kneeling down, feeling around, wide eyed,
Em-------F#m------G--------D--G----D
I felt the fur of something oh I died.
------Em------F#m---------G--------------D--G-----D
From tail to claws, From neck to fangs, Wide eyed,
---Em--------F#m-------------G-----------------D--G----D
In the total dark I felt the sleeping thing up, Wide eyed.
------------Em-----F#m-----------G-------D-G--D
It was the black wolf they call "Nothing" I died!
-----Em-----F#m-------------G-----D--G----D
And by it's side I curled and lied, wide eyed,
-----Em-------------F#m--------G---------D-G--D
And I died then to sleeping soundlessly. I died.
---------Em---------------F#m----------G
When I woke there was nothing beside me,
----------Em--------F#m------G
And the world was lit and growing but I said:
----Em----------F#m----------------G
"I know you're there! I feel your stare,
--Em--------F#m---------G
I feel your breathing blowing!
---------------Em------F#m-------G
I feel your gnashing teeth in falling leaves,

Your beady eyes in apples glowing!

I know you are no dream!

And I'm not dozing!"

Sorry if some of the chords dont match up exactly

Posted by: bluegrassish July 04, 2007 08:14 pm
here's how i play "i felt your shape"; it's correct, just moved down on the neck. i actually found a youtube video by someone who explains how to play the song the way i do. he's a good guitarist who teaches all kinds of stuff (microphones, beirut, nick drake, etc.) his username is cougarman7 if you're interested.

Chords: D?1 (xx4323) D?2 (xx2323) Bm G Em A

Riff:

E----3--------------2------------------2-----------2---|
B----2-strum------3--strum----------3-strum---3--|
G----3-------------2--------------2---2-----------4--|
D-4------------2----------------------------------4---|
A--------------------------------------------------2--|
E-----------------------------------------------------|

so the general idea is to really just alternate your bass picking a bit through the D-Bm-G-Em-D-Bm-G-A transition, with the picking being more frequent through D-Bm and just a few notes on the G-Em/G-A.

D Bm
I thought I felt your shape but I was wrong,
G Em
really all I felt was falsely strong.
D Bm
I held on tight and closed my eyes,
G A
It was dumb, I had no sense of your size.
Bm A G
It was dumb to hold so tight.
Em D Bm
But last night on your birthday in the kitchen,
G Em
my grip was loose, my eyes were open.
D Bm
I felt your shape and heard you breathing,
G A
I felt the rise and fall of your chest.
Bm
I felt your fall,
A
your winter snows,
G
your gusty blow,
Em
your lava flow.
Bm
I felt it all:
A
Your starry night,
G
your lack of light.
Em D Bm
With limp arms I can feel most of you.
G Em
I hung around your neck independently
D Bm
and my feeling of loss was overwhelmed
G A
by this new depth I don't think I’ve ever felt.
Bm
But I don't know...
A
my nights are cold still.
G
I remember warmth,
Em
and I could have sworn
Bm
I wasn't alone.

Don’t Smoke



D Bm G
Is it because there is a little part of you that wants to be dead

Or is it because your life feels empty without some ritual
D Bm G
Or is it because the rebellion against the adults has not ended yet
A
Well, the adults sell cigarettes

And you are young and rich for now

And you have the ritual

Of waking up each and it should fill you
Bm
There’s no excuse to keep smoking

There’s no rebellion in acting like a fuck up, so why not embrace simple health?

It is obvious there is work to do, strong and deliberately
D Bm G

After living in exile,

After closing your eyes to me.

A-G#----------F#m---------------------------E
I even wrote scenes where I re-emerged boldly,

Bearded, alive and Eskimo eyed,

New baby on my back.

A-------------G#-------F#m-----------------------------E
But I didn't count the fact that I have ghosts in my mind,

Stowaways,

Great ghosts of my life, great ghosts of old wives.

And they're howling!

A------G#-------F#m---------------------E
So I spent my wilderness time rolling on the ground
------------------------------------Dmaj7
Pulling my hair and wrestling them off,

Yelling at no-one,

Punching snow.

A---G#-----F#m---------------------E
I gathered ghosts and gave them a lecture,
E
I bid them away,
-----------------Dmaj7
I pleaded and cried:
-------------E----------------------------------------------D
"There's no room in my life for you, or you or your howling!

A----------G#--------F#m-----------------------------E
Let me undo these ropes and go on living without you,
-------------------------Dmaj7
not just change where I live.
--------------E
Oh go on, get!" I said.

A---G#-----F#m--------------------E
I had my hopes, of how I would be after sending them off,
-------------------Dmaj7
After getting set free.
-----------------------E------------------------------D
But there's no such thing as living without their prowling.

A--G#-------F#m-------------------------E
As you can see, having descended the hill,
E
I still look like me,
---------------Dmaj7
I still wallow like Phil,
--------------E----riff--D
And forever will.

A--G#-------------F#m-------------------------------E
I'm teaming with ghosts and I'm still whining for wives,
--------------------------------------Dmaj7
Bidding my brow, but now I've surrendered.
---------------------E
In fact i've joined in.
E
Listen close...
-------------------D
You can hear us howling!

-----------F#m--------------G#m
There's a slow resounding story.
G#m----------------------------
There's no place to feel certain,
---------F#m----------------E
There's nobody waiting for me.
E--------------------------------------
There's no stand of trees, No morning,
----------F#m---------------G#m
There's a curve without a warning.
G#m---------------------------------
There's a weird and lasting sadness,
------------F#m-----------------E
There's no large or lengthy warming.
E---------------------------------------
There's no heat, There's no expansion.
------------F#m-------------G#m
There's no door into the mansion.
G#m--------------------------------
Lengthy warming, Sweet removal,
----------F#m----------------E
Sweet expanse,Sweetly substantial.
E------------------------------------
There's no flesh, There's no fingers,
--------F#m----------G#m
In my head, I see a tunnel.
G#m-----------------------------
We built the walls tall and solid,
---------------F#m----------------E
Between the treasure and the shovel.
E--------------------------
I see in. I see a fountain,
----------F#m-------------G#m
There's a trail over the mountain.
E-----------------------------------------
There's no wayside, there's no stopping
---------F#m---------------G#m
And the peak is wide and rocky.
G#m------------------------------
There's no ceiling in the mansion.
-----F#m---------E
No waste, no hesitation.
E----------------------------------------
There's no crack of dawn, No morning,
--------F#m----------G#m
Just an everlasting warming.

Enjoy

Calf in a Pasture

There's two different Em, and play only the top 3 string on the G chord
7------------
8------------
9------------
9-----and--2
7-----------2
7-----------0 the first one plays on the verse the other one's on when he says, "so if you see me"

C---------------Bm------------------Em
Every time my knees shake when I stand

I think, let me stay in this uncertainty
C-------------------------Bm
I would like to not stop asking,
--------Em-------------F----------------------G
I would like to stop pretending I know anything
----------Em---------------D------------G
So if you see me acting strong at the show
---------F#m----------Em---------------------D
Remind me about the calf shaking in the pasture
--------G---------
In the bright spring
C---------------------Bm------------------Em
And there under the roofs I will have nothing
---------F----------------------------------Em
But the wind that's blowing through my ears
C-----------Bm--------------------Em
Only for a minute we could give up
------------F----------------------------G
And know nothing in the mourning light
-Em------------C
A baby in the crowd
F---------------------------------------------G
Because knowing nothing again is the only way
-------Em-------------------------------------F
I can forget the weight I've been tricked under
-------------------G-------------Em--------
And see that it doesn't exist, nothing exists
F---------------G------------C
For a pass of water in the lake

I Lost My Wind

Chords: C, F, Am, G

C---------------------------------------------F----------------------
You will know where to find me if you ever catch your breath
------Am---------G-----------C----
I will be down here if you need me.
C----------------------------------------F--------------
Down right underneath where you lay your head
-------Am-------G----------C
and drift away out the window
C------------------------------------------F-----------------------
where I used to meet you when my head was in my chest
---------Am------------G---------------------C
and I drempt and I knew where I should be.
-----------Am
But I got lost
-----------G
I lost my wind
---------------------Am
You could hear me gasp
------------G---------------C
and I had fists and I disappeared
F------G-------Am
(southwest dunes)
C------------------------------------------------F-----------------
You will know who's behind you when you feel it on your neck
--------Am-------------G-------------------C
It was me watching you from behind a rock.
C-----------------------------------F-------------------
You will get the creeps when I whisper from above
------Am-------------G-----------------------------C
and look around for me but I left a long time ago.
-------------Am-----------G-
I saw you give birth in pain
--------------Am-------G----
and try to think of a name.
---------Am----------------G-----------------F-G-C
It was me being pulled out of you for good.

Weird Storm

Intro: power chords C, Am, F, C, G, F

C-------F--------------C-----F
Weird storm passes over town,
C-----F---------------------C-G-F
Everyone looks up and runs.
C----------------Am-----F-----
First there are flashes far away,
C--------Am------G
Slowly getting close
C---------------Am---------F
then the blue-gray light covers us up.
C-----------Am-------G
Next, my favorite part!
Am-------G----------F
Thunderclouds roll in,
Am-------G--------F
Blocking out the sun.
Am----------G-------------F-----------------------Am--G--F
Bumping together they crash like big drums.
C-----------------------------C-----------------
I dream of thunderclouds, My arms and legs
G---------------------------C----------F
made of just water, and air, and sound
C--------------Am-------F---------C
Once it starts falling, cover me up.
C----------------Am------------G
Weird storm, dropping weird things.
C-----------Am------F------------------C
Water and ice in tons of different shapes!
C-----------Am------------G
Everyone looks up and runs.
Am--------G---------F
Thunder clouds roll in,
Am--------G---------F
Electricity fills the air.

G--------------------------C-----------F
made of just water, and air, and sound

Posted by: Amuseddaysleeper August 22, 2007 05:32 am
thanks a ton for posting this


My only question in regards to "Calf in the Pasture" is that I was wondering if for the little "lead" Phil plays in the beginning, if he's simply finger picking each of the chords that he uses in the verses.

thanks again!

Posted by: Slow Nerve Action August 22, 2007 04:54 pm
Yeah, on that video he plays those chords for the intro. But i have heard other recordings where he doesn't play one and goes straight to the song. To bad there isn't a studio recording yet so we could know for sure. I think the intro goes something like this though:

C---------------------Bm----------------Em-------------------F-------------G
--------0------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-1---3----3--1--------3------3p2--------8--------8p7-------------------------------------
---0-------------0--------4--------4---------9----------9-------2------2------------------
--------------------2-----------------4---------------------9-------3------3----------------
-3---------------------2----2--------------7----7------------------------------2---2-2--2-2
-----------------------------------------2--------------------7---1----1--------3---3-3--3-3

He does some riff after the G that i can't figure out

Eyes For Volume

It sounds a little off if you play with the recording but its close

Chords:
C#m-------E
--------------------
--------------------
------1---------4--
------2---------6--
---4--4-----7--7--
-0----0---0----0--


When he sings "drum sets taller that a house" it goes

-----------------------------
-----------------------------
-1---------------4----------
-2--2-----2-----6---6----6
-4-----4--------7------7----
-0---------------0-----------

C#m----------------------------------------
Volume, You can see it through my eyes
E-------------------------------------
And hear it when I'm wide awake.
C#m-------------------------------E
My eyes mostly stay shut when I sing,
E-------------------------
Just like when I'm asleep.
C#m---------------------------E--------
I have dreams about things I will make,
E----------------------
And plans I never do.
C#m-------------------------------E----------
In sleep, I'll record these songs in my head
C#m---------------------------
Drum-sets taller than a house,
E-----------------------------------
Bass amps knocking over trees,
C#m-----------------------------------E
Lowbots with five or six tape decks in them,
E---------------
For making tapes.
C#m------------------------------
Things change when I wake up,
E---------------------------
I see things how they are.
C#m---------------------------------
I don't have a body made of tape,
E---------------------------------------
Or headphones attached to my head.
C#m--------------------------------
These songs help me trick myself
--------E---------------------------
And pretend I'm made of sound

has anybody got a tab for "In Moonlight"? I'd like to see a tab of one of the acoustic performances up here, like from the Bergen Landmark show or something. Thanks in advance.

i try to play it like this (im not going to tab it out because the bass notes stay the same.. its a little bit easier to me, but i don't know if its better

wide harsh and terrified

out the window you are nothing but some blue light in my house
Em--------------------------
hello little man in the house
---------------------D---------------------
glancing out the window and going to bed
--------------Em-----------------------
this is the mountain above your roof
---------------D------------------
this is the space above your head
-------------------Em-------------
i know you're comfortable in there
---------D--------------------------
being content with what you have
--------------------Em------------
saying no more hunting this is it
--------------D---------
and sitting still for good
-----------------------Em--------------
but you must come reconcile with me
--------------D-------------------
im/on the space above your head
------------Em--------------
the dark unfolding mystery
-------------------D---------
come out come out and see
------------------Em
what you don't know

???????????????????????????????????????????
mount eerie revealed in a break in the clouds
and in dawn again
the day runs out
the shapes blur again over and over
using up my life
and if its spring
maybe i'll see you during the short day, the long twilight
a cloud, a break in the clouds, and another cloud and then night
in and out of the fog i forget what i know
the rock revolves, and there's my sight
the sun sets in the south where it rose
the song dissolves, bones blow in pink light
mount eerie revealed in a break in the clouds
and in dawn again

E5----------D5---------C5------------D5--------
Rode that ghost from her house to my house,
E5---------D5-----C5---------D5------
Darkened by the long gone sunset

Trees hang over and make it even darker
E5-----D5--------C5----------D5------
I pass by them every single night
E5------F#m--------G5--------A5
Ahhhh Ahhhhhh Ahhhhh Ahhhh
E5---------D5---------C5---------D5-------
There's a ghost that lives right above me
E5--------D5--------C5----------D5-----
Floating dead, but never been alive
E5----------------D5------C5------D5-----
Not a boy, not a girl, and only at night
E5-------D5----------C5-----------D5-------
Fills my tummy up, makes me something
E5----------F#m------G5----------A5
She fills me up like drinking hot chocolate,
E5---------F#m--------G5---------A5
Sweet and warm and she's my honey,
E5---------------D5---------C5------D5
When I have to go home I feel so sad,
E5----D5-------C5------D5
After that I'm awfully lonely.

Funny thing, I asked him to play this in Novato and he had forgotten it.

The only part I've figured out so far is that it's pretty much a C chord but you just play different bass notes like in the song so it goes, C-D-E-F-G and then other stuff

i don't know if someone already helped you out, but here is a really basic "moon moon"

C Am G
-0----0 0--------------------------------------3--------
-1---------1----------------- 1----------------3--------
-0----------------------------2----------------0--------
-2--------------3 ---2-2-----2-----2 2h3---- 0--------
-3-----------------3---------------------------2---------
-0---------------------------------------------3---------

then there's a fingerpicked C chord, and probably more, but i'm doing this without listening to the song and i'm lazy. hope it helps.

i don't think its going to line up right, but basically its a C chord, fill, Am, fill, and then a G chord. enjoy.

I'm not sure if this is how phil plays it acoustic, but the Eric's Trip version of Sand is this:

i play it with a capo because it's simpler:

Looking for a tab / the chords for Who?, please : )

Posted by: Slow Nerve Action July 03, 2008 01:12 am
Who?

I tabbed it some time ago but it really wasn't accurate. I'm still not sure if playing it this way is either, but I think its an improvement. It sounds best just hitting mostly bass notes


Bm--------------------------------------------------G-D-A-Bm
What do I want with my life now you're gone?
Bm
I want your ghost gone.
Bm------------------------------------------------------G-D-A-Bm
What do I want with this wood now that it's sawn?
Bm---------------------------------------------------G-D-A-Bm
I want the stump gone, and the land it grew on.
A------------------------------------G---------------A
Oh Black Lagoon, you have my shoe so I go shoeless.
Bm--G---D---A---Em----Bm
I go muddy crawling through.


I think on the Bm chord he does a hammer on riff on the A string like this

-2-2-2-2-2-2
-3-3-3-3-3-3
-4-4-4-2-2-2
-4-4-4-4-4-4
-2-2-2-5-5-5
-2-2-2-2-2-2

I figured out "Flaming Home" this morning and thought I'd share by way of introducing myself around here.
I think it's mostly right (lyrics too). The song is split into 3 main sections, it's a really unusual structure. I've included the chords at the end. The B2 I've listed is just the 7th fret barre chord version. Live Phil seems to use this chord later in the song and the 'standard' version of B in the beginning section.

Either way, it's an amazing song and I can't wait for Lost Wisdom to come out.

Wind revealing the dust that the body becomes

the spaces where we stood echo quiet
----------G#m---D#m---B2------------D#m
Rubbing eyes we fill up the empty days
C#m---------------E-------------------G#m
clinging with our things to a windy rock
---G#m---------------D#m-------------------B2---D#m
I revealed myself to you and let the wind take me
C#m-------------E-------------------G#m
obliterated, you know me by my shadow.

G#m---------------------------------------------------
With one hand in the water wanting cold and clear
------F#-------------------------------------------------------
Fall obliterates the morning and I don't know where I am
-----G#m-----E-------------------C#m-----------B---
The heart is pounding, you are always on my mind
-----G#m---
Lost Wisdom

The boulder under the house

This is about half the song, the rest is pretty much the same

There's no wayside, there's no stopping
---------F#m---------------G#m
And the peak is wide and rocky.

There's no ceiling in the mansion.
-----F#m---------E
No waste, no hesitation.
E----------------------------------------
There's no crack of dawn, No morning,
--------F#m----------G#m
Just an everlasting warming.

Enjoy

When I play this, I'd change all F#minors to F#s. Technically, your tab is not F#m, it's F#5, which sounds better, F#m is wrong I think.

Wind's Dark Poem

I tabbed this out from the Brussels After Midnight bootleg.


Intro (chords)

G*m - B - E - G*m - C*m

And tabbed:
..G#m....B (strum)..............E (strum)...........G#m (strum)...C#m (strum)
------------------------------------------------------------------------
---------------------------------------------------------------------5-
-4--------4--------4---4---3---1-------------------1-------------6-
-6--------4---------------------2----------4---1---1--------------6-
-6--------2---------------------2------2------------2-------------4-
-4--------2---------------------------------------------------------4-

There are a couple of little patterns that Phil uses sometimes when changing between chords. When going from C#m to E he sometimes briefly changes the chord to a B shape

-----------
-----------
----------1
-----4----2
-2--------2
-----------



-----------G#m---------------B
Voice of wind, the air in the branches

-----------------
-----------------
------4---3----1
-4-------------2
----------------2
-----------------
sounded like words

C#m----------------------------
whispering a spell on me
--------B--------E---------------
until I heard
------------G#m----------------
now i see shapes in the low light
------------B--------------------
the earth quakes in the twilight
------C#m----------------------
i see flames in my calm life
--------------------------E--------E
i hear the winds dark poem

G#m - B - C#m - E

----------G#m--------------------------B2-------------------------------------------
you can see from above the rocks sticking out of the yard behind the house
-----------------------C#m-----------------------B----------------------------------
make stone constellations half buried in the dusk
----------------G#m---------------B2----------
the unformed stories coming to life
------------------------------------C#m--------
while i sleep the breath moves branches
--------B----------------------------------------
saying words that i don't know
a new poem
the song i sang in a dream
the lights of the town faint
something is exhaling
the sound of traffic far away
something is happening

winds darks poem describes
calligraphy of branches rights
stone constellation a life
the house is built on a boulder
soil returns to the wind
bones blow in pink light
a distant sound saying my name
the wind is taking pieces
winds dark poem is about
the constantly roaring decay
the destruction of everyday
and every mornings waking
but even while spring is bringing
blossoms back among leaves
the cold wind blows when the night falls
and the bare branches bend


************************************

I think that's everything. The second chord progression in the song just repeats over the rest of the lyrics.

Our little hearts are born already ancient

We would not be so scared to say I do and settle down
If we knew that our hearts never go dating
They stay at home for us patiently waiting

We would not be so scared of meeting love and lying down
If we knew that mountains would be unveiling

We would not be so scared of being swallowed by the ground
If we knew that greater bodies still were waiting
Dotted lines in the air tomorrow morning

If you were to put the guitar back in though you'd play it as F and C all the way through.

here's some new stuff...

(Wind Summons)

C_______________________D_____________ Em
I Can't Say it so i will let the wind
_____C________________D____________Em__________Bm
Come wind, destroyer of worlds, Speak to me, show me shapes in the swirling dust
_______C___________ D___________ Em_________Bm
Come wind, sayer of names, speak to me, make me listen in to the night
______C__________________D__________ Em___________Bm
Come wind, the fog from my eyes, come revealer, the town lights from the night skys
______C__________________D _________________Em_________Bm
Come Destroyer pound on my window scream in the house tear the old land from it's self
______C____________________D ___________Em____________Bm
Come Wind, in the mouth of the sky, speak for me, show the hill's insides
______________C__________________D
Show me the river, that roars threw my house,
___________C_______________________D _________________Em_________Bm
There was a break in the clouds, and you lit up my house, for a wile, i was in favor and then it closed
___________C__________________D _________________Em_________Bm
and now the wind, speaks in the branches, now the wind speaks in the branches
_______C____________________Bm________Em_________________Bm
Saying hold on to something, and watch it go, everything you love will end up on the breeze
____C________________________________Bm________Em___________Bm
the roots that held the tree down, left a deep hole, full of water, reflecting the sky


(my heart is not)

_____Em_____________Bm_____________________C___D____________Em
If my heart were at peace, would it be a blossom, or satisfy, would it be a stone
_____Em_____________Bm_____________________C___D____________Em
my heart is not at peace, i woke up hungry, there is wind, and there is no song
___________Em______Bm_______________________C___D______Em
The satisfied heart, half sleeping threw the days, in the wind, in the hope
_____Em__________________________Bm
if my heart were at peace, i would have closed the doors and windows
____C_____D_________Em
Satisfaction, Feels like a tomb
_____Em_________ Bm
i was writhing in the tomb, my heart frozen boulder
______C________________D_______________________Em
the romance and all i'd rejected comes like music on the wind
_____Em_____________Bm________________ C D Em
the violence in my heart, the stone in the mountain, all revealed ????? sweeping broom
______C______D__________Em
All destroyed by the burning wind



it's three in the morning sorry if i fucked something up. these songs feel like one long song, maybe it's cause he plays them together or maybe it's cause they actually are one song... who knows.

nice one baKERL, I've been meaning to look at this one for ages. I think I'd suggest C/B instead of B though. It sort of makes more sense with the picking.

As good as I could possibly imagine my life getting it did, after I met you.
___________F_______________________________G_______________________Am

yeah, thanks for taking the time to tab this out for that dude...

it's such a fun song to play. it really makes me happy.

yeah, the way i play the beginning with the C,C/B,Am,G part is basically just hitting the bass notes while keeping my other fingers in the "C" position. cool.

g_____2________2________2________2___
d___2________2________2________2_____
a_0________0________0________0_______
e____________________________________


C
As good as I could possibly imagine my life getting, it did
F
After I met
Em
you
The way you
F
reached inside my chest and pulled out
G
things and sent them off in
Am
breaths blew

C
And as good as it got with all the layers peeling off, and though I
F
writhed
I could not upset
Em
you
With your
F
hand down my throat you held
G
on to my heart and pumped
Am
blood through

C
And then “it’s time to go” you said, “it’s time to go out
You little gray
F
goose
Em
Get out from
F
under my wing” you said “go
G
on you swan you
Am
turn loose”

There is a riff played through this first part
Keep plucking thorugh the Am untill "over" and start to play
__OVER_____I was so we died
e_______________________________
b_______________________________
g_______________________________
d_______2___________________2___
a_3_______2____________0________
e_____________________________3_

(Full Strums on these chords but only about once)

I was so “your
F
hand on my
G(Barre on 3)
heart pumping
Am
blood went limp” and
F
oh, I
G
fly
Oh swan inside.
C (back to the Picking Riff end on strum)

Nice one. I hadn't spotted that Em in there before.

I generally play a picking pattern like this for all the chords (this is just for the C, C/B, Am, G part)

e___________________________________
b___1_______1________1_______1______
g_______0_______0________2_______0__
d_____2_______0________2_______0____
a_3_______2________0________________
E__________________________3________
