Strange Terrain

Recommended Posts

Here's the rhythm guitar that I figured out from the acoustic version. I imagine that it is the same when played electric.

 

A# - {x x 8 7 6 x}

C# - {x x 11 10 9 x}

F# - {x x 4 3 2 x}

G# - {x x 6 5 4 x}

D# - {x 6 x 8 x x}

D - {x 5 x 7 x x}

C# Octave - {x 4 x 6 x x}

B - {x 2 x 4 x x}

A# Octave - {x 1 x 3 x x}

F# Octave - {x 9 x 11 x x}

G - {x 10 x 12 x x}

C - {x 3 x 5 x x}

 

A#						  C#
We read the signs completely backwards

A#						 C#
No one could see if we ended up

	F#
Where we needed to be

 G#		 A#
to find out how it all works with

	 C#
so many partners

  A#					 C#
and nobody wants, nobody wants to sit

F#			   G#			A#
behind the wheel, behind the wheel


D#						 D
Who's the one pounding the gears

	   C# Octave
avoiding the crowds

		  B
keeping their ear to the ground?

D#			  F# Oct.
Oh I’ve made a mistake

   C# Oct.			 B				   A# Oct.
I never learned how to get back to the place, ohhh


G				 F# Oct.		A# Oct.		C  D#
Where have all the signs gone?  (In our lives, in our lives)

		  G	 F# Oct.				 A# Oct.				 C	D#
I don't know where I am without them	   (In			  our		lives)

 A#  A#   A#   C#
(Get your own map)

 

This is my first tab ever, and I hope I did it well. Fill in the gaps for the other lyrics that I left out due to lack of work ethic. It took me long enough to get the chords aligned properly with the lyrics I have. If this tab sucks in any way, I might post a video of me playing it to help.

seems to be a great tab, i am not a great guitar player though, im a much better visual learner. so if you do ever record yourself playing it, post it!!

Hey good tab, but just to fill it out a little:

 

The chords to the chorus are: Gm - F# - A#

The pre chorus is: D#m - A#/D - C# - B

 

Gm: {3 5 5 3 3 3}

D#m: {x 6 8 8 7 x}

A#/D: {x 5 8 7 6 x}

I'm almost positive that this is not what Colin is playing, but you can do whatever you want.

Guitars tuned to Eb, try this instead for the beginning:

x x x 8 7 7

 

x x x 11 10 10

 

x x x 4 3 3

 

x x x 6 5 5

 

That doesn't sound too nice...

What makes you so sure? I'm playing it right now and it sounds pretty close to the album version, if not spot on. Not trying to be mean, I just want to know why you're so sure of what Colin is or isn't playing.

I've watched enough videos of the song to see that his fingers aren't shaped in that sort of chord. It's also missing the lower note, and it has a higher note. I really don't think that's correct.

 

EDIT:

Not hitting the first string at all, and he's not playing that high on the fretboard.

100% sure that is the chord shape and is that same shape just moved around, whether you add the high E or leave off the note on the D string its still the same chord whether its

 

xxx877

 

xx987x

 

xx9877

 

 

 

 

 

Use your ears instead of your eyes and just listen to the first 10 seconds of this

 

x_7-0o8Hlis

 

So if you want to play it this way you can:

 

x x 9 8 7 x

 

x x 12 11 10 x

 

x x 5 4 3 x

 

x x 7 6 5 x

Dudebro, there's totally not a high note in that chord.

 

I've used both my eyes and ears to come to this conclusion.

 

On the album version I am almost positive the high E is being played at the very beginning.

If I am missing that note, it's most certainly played as a variation of my chord setup.

 

Example:

 

Instead of {x x 8 7 6 x}, it would be {x x 8 7 6 6}; that sounds fine.

 

I'm positive that it's played in Standard with that positioning.

Well my guitar is tuned to Eb and I have played the whole song through both guitar parts and it sounds fine. They were tuned to Eb most of the last album also.

If you look again at the picture I posted above, you will see that he starts on the 6th fret.

 

It's in standard.

 

So play it in whatever tuning you want, theres not a bunch of open chords in the song so it doesn't matter.

This probably isn't right but this is what I came up with for the intro

I have it tuned a half step down

 

----7---------8--------7-----8----------2------4--------7-----------------------

----7---------8--------7-----8----------2------4--------7---------------------

----8---------9--------8-----9----------3------5--------8----------------------

----9---------10-------9----10---------4------6--------9------------------------

----9---------10-------9----10---------4------6--------9------------------------

----7---------8--------7-----8---------2-------4--------7--------------------------

 

 

-----7-----------------------------------------10/--------------------------

-----------7----------7--8--10--8--7-----------------9/----7/-----5/------

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

---------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

I really dont know what you play after so I just play this on the B string

 

----12-13-12---14-15-14----17b----17--------------------
