Guitar tabs with lyrics

Tuning: DADGAD

Album version has a capo on 3.

This isn't quite perfect, but it should give you an idea of what Tina is doing,
and it's a song which works really well with a lot of jamming around on the
open strings in DADGAD tuning.

There are three main riffs to this song. For simplicity, I'm going to call them
the D-riff, the C-riff, and the F-riff. There are lots of minor variations of all
three, particularly with the strumming pattern and how she plays the open strings,
and there are more strums than I've indicated here.

The key thing to remember is that all three riffs involve a whole step slide up of
most of the fretted notes. Those slides are the best way to orient yourself as you
listen to the song and figure out how each riff goes.

D-riff:

(She plays this after every time she says the title. It starts the song and follows
the F-riff).

chordwise that's Dsus4-D5-Dadd6-D5-Dsus4

Just jam around with that until you get the feel of it. It's pretty easy once
you get the hang of it.

C-Riff

(Always follows D-riff. An example starts over the word "heels" in the first verse)

chordwise that a A chord diagramCadd2Cadd2 to a A chord diagramD MajorD major. You shouldn't hit the low A chord diagramD MajorD on the c chord,
and you don't have to hit the high D, either, although she sometimes does. On the
A chord diagramD MajorD chord you can hit the low D, which will simulate the heaviness  of the
second guitar part we hear later in the song, but also buries the root movement a little.

F-Riff

(follows C-riff, or repeats after a prior F-riff)

Chordwise that's an A chord diagramFF major to a Gadd9, more or less. The high D- and A- strings are optional.
They sound good if you fill out the chord with them, but you don't really need them. Tina
doesn't hit them the same every time, and the important part is the bass notes and the slide up
on the lower strings.

She also sometimes just plays a variations on a A chord diagramD5D5 chord:

With all of the riffs, after you play it, you just strum on the position until the next riff
starts.

Intro:

D-riff. C-Riff. F-riff x2.


Verse:

                    D-riff C-Riff F-Riff.
You don't step into love
                    D-riff
You don't step into love

You fall
          C-Riff
Head over heels, blindfolded
f-riff
Into a somersault
                    D-riff
You don't step into love

c-riff, f-riff

                    D-riff
You don't step into love

You fall
              C-Riff
Down on your knees, wide open
f-riff
Into the weary dark
                    D-riff
You don't step into love


Chorus:
     C-riff             F-riff
I've fallen from many terrifying heights
     F-riff                        A chord diagramD5D5
Fallen, like a feather and like a stone
     C-riff                   F-riff
I've fallen hand-in-hand with many Mr. Right
     F-riff                   A chord diagramD5D5
But mostly I've fallen alone

And that's really the whole song. She goes back in forth between those two parts,
occasionally mixing the lyrics up between the two verses. If you listen to the song, it's
pretty easy to hear the timing on the slide-up part of each riff.
