Guitar tabs

Elsewhere
by Sarah McLachlan
from the album Fumbling Towards Ecstacy
Transcribed by John Argentiero (jfafreak@wam.umd.edu)

The bulk of this song is done on piano, but I will provide chords that
sound decent on guitar.  The spacing of the chords may seem odd, but I
tried my best to match them up with the vocals.  The album is the best
reference for when to play what.

This is some tab for the intro, notes in brackets are supposed to be done
on piano.

The song fades out repeating that last line.

Sometime around the last chorus, the guitar stops playing chords and
plays this:

e-----|-----|-------|---------|--------|----------|--------|-2b1/2-2--|
B-X-X-|-X-X-|-X-3-X-|-X-----X-|-X------|-X------X-|----X-X-|----------|
G-X-X-|-X-X-|-X---X-|-X-----X-|-X-5--X-|-X------X-|----X-X-|----------|
D-X-X-|-X-X-|-X---X-|-X-5h7-X-|-X------|-X--5h7-X-|--7-X-X-|----------|
A-----|-----|-------|---------|--------|----------|--------|----------|
E-----|-----|-------|---------|--------|----------|--------|----------|

This is played twice and then the guitar goes into the outro.  Listen to
the album closely for the timing of this part, its kinda buried in the
piano parts.
When playing this song alone on acoustic guitar, just ignore this part
and play the straight chords listed above.
Hope thiss is all you need to play this rather spiffy song.
Enjoy, and email me with amy comments!
