Can You Tell by Ra Ra Riot

Tabs with lyrics

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
                          CAN YOU TELL - Ra Ra Riot
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: rikky

the song is written in the key of F#m/A.
this is a simplified tab, played live the song gets a lot trickier.
taken from the album version, although the EP version is in the same key.


VERSE CHORDS:

The basic chord structure of the song is -
Chord diagramA augmentedA (x2) Chord diagramB minorBm Chord diagramC# minorC#m

timing is pretty simple -

        Oh      have I been     too dis-        creet?
Chord diagramA augmentedA               Chord diagramB minorBm              Chord diagramC# minorC#m             Chord diagramA augmentedA

        How     long am I sup-  posed to        wait?
Chord diagramA augmentedA               Chord diagramB minorBm              Chord diagramC# minorC#m             Chord diagramA augmentedA

        I       think about you nightl-         y
Chord diagramA augmentedA               Chord diagramB minorBm              Chord diagramC# minorC#m             Chord diagramA augmentedA

     Oh can you tell    I'm     lo-     sing    sleep?
Chord diagramA augmentedA               Chord diagramB minorBm              Chord diagramC# minorC#m             Chord diagramA augmentedA

it sounds good if you slowly strum the Chord diagramB minorBm and Chord diagramC# minorC#m on an acoustic.
play it in E-shape, barred 5-7-9 (sounds nice alongside the record).
