Dave Matthews Band tabs for Rapunzel

Guitar tabs with lyrics

"Rapunzel" by the Dave Matthews Band, transcribed by Brian Cieszynski
(spitfire@ods.ods.net) from the album "Before These Crowded Streets"

I haven't gotten around to figuring out "Pantala Naga Pampa" but when I
do, I will send it in to be posted.  But, here's "Rapunzel"

                                     "Uhn, Ha, open wide."  "I do my
bestfor you"

Fig. 2 is what I could come up with- there is a lot of interplay between Tim
Reynolds and Dave in this part of the song, but play this with the album- it
sounds decent.  This basic rhythm is used throughout the song, and the only
exception is at the "I do my best for you" line, where the second ending is
sung in time with the strikes of the strings (The last line of the above tab)

The main body of the song uses Fig. 2 along with the 2nd ending for the
"I do my best for you" line.  Here's the chorus.  Before playing this, see my

note at the bottom of the page.

Repeat Fig 2 for verses,  same chord changes for next Chorus.


Outro Jam-  Use same chords from Fig 2- listen to album to get exact
pattern,
I couldn't accurately tab the rhythm on my computer.


Dave avoids using the high strings on his guitar for the most part, so
the A chord diagramC majorC and A chord diagramD MajorD chords of the chorus are played as such:
