Rhymes Of An Hour by Mazzy Star
Written by David Roback and Hope Sandoval
Tabbed by CJWilky

Having listened to the studio and several live versions there are still two lines I'm not certain of:
"While the cold winter waving
While you stone the crow"
Comments and corrections very welcome.

Main Riff

The main riff is picked.
For the intro it is as above, A chord diagramD5D5 for 4 bars, A chord diagramC majorC for 1 bar. Then the same pattern but A chord diagramD5D5 x2 A chord diagramC majorC x1, and
back to A chord diagramD5D5 before the verse begins.
The e string is often muted to varying degrees through the song.


Break Riff

A chord diagramA augmentedA A chord diagramD5D5 begins on the "know" of "I think you know" and continues for 2 bars before the A chord diagramG+G of the break

riff begins.

No Capo
Though if strumming, try the A chord diagramD MajorD (instead of A chord diagramD5D5) and A chord diagramC majorC barred in the "A position" at 5 and 3,
with A chord diagramG+G at 3 in the "E position". It also sounds good with the A chord diagramD MajorD and A chord diagramC majorC barred in the "E position"
at 10 and 8. Strumming DUU nicely approximates the riff especially if you only hit the bass note on the Down.
