Wonderwall

in Live Covers, Tablature, by jaman
wonderwall - oasis cover
as performed by howie day
tab by Mike Ingram - nakedguy69@hotmail.com
------------------------------------

notes:

*this is how howie is playing it in the vids i have. same chords as oasis, though they may use different structures 
at some point.

*the D chord in parenthesis is one that i've seen howie do, but he doesn't always do it, sometimes he lets the Em 
ring until going to the A

* no, i didn't want to bother confusing people with the real chord names, nor type them all out several times. depending 
on how you finger things, your pinky or your pinky and ring finger, will stay in the same position, all song.

Capo 2nd fret

all chords are played like this

Em - 0-2-2-0-3-3
G  - 3-2-0-0-3-3
D  - x-(0)-0-2-3-3
A  - x-0-2-0-3-3
C  - x-3-2-0-3-3
D/F# - 2-(0)-0-0-3-3

Intro: Em - G - D - A

Em.........G
Today is gonna be the day that they're 
D......................A
gonna throw it back to you
Em..........G
By now you should've somehow 
D........................A
realized what you got to do
Em...................G
I don't believe that anybody 
D...............A
feels the way I do 
..........C.....D...A
About you now 

Backbeat the word is on the street that the 
fire in your heart is out
I'm sure you've heard it all before but you 
never really had a doubt
I don't believe that anybody 
feels the way I do
About you now 

....C
And all the roads we 
D.................Em
have to walk are winding
....C
And all the lights that 
D...................Em
lead us there are blinding
C...............D
There are many things that I 
......G.......D/F#...Em
Would like to say to you, 
......(D)........A
but I don't know how

......C....Em....G
Cause maybe 
.......Em....................C........Em...G
you're gonna be the one that saves me
.......Em....C....Em...G
And after all 
..........Em.....C....Em...G.....(into Disco intro) or the A 
You're my wonderwall 

Today is gonna be the day but they'll 
never throw it back to you
By now you should've somehow 
realized what you're not to do
I don't believe that anybody 
feels the way I do 
About you now 

And all the roads that 
lead you there are winding
And all the lights that 
light the way are blinding
There are many things that I 
Would like to say to you, 
but I don't know how

Cause maybe 
you're gonna be the one that saves me? 
And after all 
You're my wonderwall

(Original Demo Lyrics) 
(Note "drug make ME worse" - pre-commercial/sanitized version)

All this talk of growin' old
is gettin' me down my love
like a cat in a bag
waiting to drown
I know I'm coming down

and I hope you're thinking of me
as you lay down inside
now the drugs don't work
they just make me worse
but I know I'll see your face again

cause baby ooohhhh
if heaven calls I'm coming too
and baby ooohhhh
if heaven calls I'm with you

But I know I'm on a losing streak
I passed down my old street
and if you wanna stop 
then give me a shout 
and I'll come running down
you know I will
But the drugs don't work
they just make me worse
and I know I'll see your face again

cause baby ooohhhh
if heaven calls I'm coming too
cause baby ooohhhh
if heaven calls I'm coming too
Just like you said
I'm better dead, when I ain't got you
Just like you said
I'm better dead, when I ain't got you

but if you wanna show 
then just let me know 
and I'll sing in your ear again
but the drugs don't work
they just make me worse
but I know I'll see your face again

like a cat in a bag
waiting to drown
I know I'm coming down
now the drugs don't work
they just make me worse
and I know I'll see your face again

So Much to Say

in Live Covers, Tablature, by jaman
So Much to Say [Dave Matthews Band cover]
by Howie Day
Transcription by Scott Ferguson
stupidmarmoset7@hotmail.com

-------------------------------------------

The whole songs based around the A major scale.  It's
tricky but mad fun to play once you get this freaky
shit down.  So don't fret young grasshopper, it just
takes practice.

-------------------------------------------

Basic chords:

The first part of the song is based around the A major
barre shape. (577655)

A7 - 575655
Dm7 - x57565
Em7 - x79787
E7 [triad] - xxx989
Am - 577555

-------------------------------------------

Intro (Just repeat it 4 times):

e --x---x-x----------------
B --x---x-x-----5--5-------
G --x---x-x-----5--5h6-----
D --x---x-x------------7---
A --x---x-x----------------
E -----------/5------------

Verse:

e --x---x-x----------------|----------------5--------------
B --x---x-x-----5--5-------|----------------5----------5---
G --x---x-x-----5--5h6-----|----------------5----------5---
D --x---x-x------------7\--|------------------------7------
A --x---x-x----------------|-----3-------------------------
E -----------/5------------|--1-----1---/5-----/5----------

Repeat the first half twice, then play the whole thing and
repeat that pattern.  Listen to the recording to get it
exactly, it's not very hard.

He does that a few times, and then just shifts into a chord
progression.

     A7    Dm7   Em7   A7   E7   Am
e ---5------5-----7----5--|--9----5---
B ---5------6-----8----5--|--8----5---
G ---6------5-----7----6--|--9----5---
D ---5------7-----9----5--|-------7---
A ---7------5-----7----7--|-----------
E ---5-----------------5--|-----------

That lick after the barline is a little whacky, and the rhythm
changes around.  The rest of the song is just those chords.  The lick
isn't always played, only occasionally just for some extra colour.
Mess around with how you play the chords to get his exact sound, it's
tricky but fun to play.

------------------------------------------

All done.

Slide

in Live Covers, Tablature, by jaman
Slide [Goo Goo Dolls Cover]
by Howie Day
Transcription by Scott Ferguson
stupidmarmoset7@hotmail.com

-------------------------------------

John Rzeznik uses a whacky tuning for this song, Howie plays it in
standard tuning.  Listen to the recording for the exact rhythm.

-------------------------------------

Basic chords:

Em7 - 022033
D - xx0232
Dsus4 - xx0233
C - x32010
Cadd9 - x32030
G - 3x0033

-------------------------------------

Intro & Outro:

        Em7     D    Dsus4    C	    G
e -------3------2------3------0-----3----
B -------3------3------3------1-----3----
G -------0------2------2------0-----0----
D -------2------0------0------2-----0----
A -----2----------------------3-----x----
E ---0------------------------------3----

Verse:

    Em7     D    Dsus4    C
e ---3------2------3------0----
B ---3------3------3------1----
G ---0------2------2------0----
D ---2------0------0------2----
A ---2--------------------3----
E ---0-------------------------

The verse is the same number of beats as the intro and outro,
so it gets a tit bit tricky.  The Em7 is held out longer as
well as the C and D.  The C is held out for a considerably
longer time.  Also, he plays a more broken up version of that
twice before the chorus comes in.  It's just a variation.  Make
sure to get that Dsus4 voicing in there and then zip to a Cadd9
(not a C, although either works).

Chorus (So why don't you slide...):

    Em7     D      C	 G    C	    G    C     G    D   Dsus4
e ---3------2--|---0-----3----0-----3----0-----3----2-----3---
B ---3------3--|---1-----3----1-----3----1-----3----3-----3---
G ---0------2--|---0-----0----0-----0----0-----0----2-----2---
D ---2------0--|---2-----0----2-----0----2-----0----0-----0---
A ---2---------|---3-----x----3-----x----3-----x--------------
E ---0---------|---------3----------3----------3--------------

It's repeated twice, and hold that Dsus4 of for a few beats.  When
you repeat, repeat from that sexy little bar line, not the entire
thing again.  The Em7 is for about a 1/16 of a beat, and the first
D is only about 1/8 of a beat.  Listen to the recording, it's tricky.

--------------------------------------

That's that, enjoy.

lyrics -

i picture you in the sun wondering what went wrong
and falling down on your knees asking for sympathy
being caught in between all you wish for and all you need
i picture you fast asleep a night that comes
you can't keep awake
-
may gods love be with you always
may gods love be with you
-
i know i would apoligize if i could see your eyes
cause when you showed me myself i became someone else
cause i've been caught in between all i wish for and all i dream
i picture you fast asleep a night comes you can't keep awake
-
may gods love be with you always
may gods love be with you always
-
cause if i find, if i find my way how much will i find
-
i don't know anymore whats it's for i'm not even sure
if there is anyone who is in the sun could you help me to understand
cause i've been caught in between all i wish for and all i need
maybe i'm not even sure what it's for anymore then me
-
may gods love be with you always
may gods love be with you always

Help

tabbed by: mike ingram - nakedguy69@hotmail.com
***********************************************************

the Bm he's playing at the beginning is with an open high e, like x-2-4-4-3-0

for the "walk down" parts where you add the bass A or F#, 
i don't hear howie doing it much, but i tend to cause it sounds cool :)

for the A --- Bb part, i'm pretty sure he's doing that as 
5-7-7-6-0-0 ---- 6-8-8-7-0-0 at least part of the time, sounds pretty groovy

any questions or comments, let me know

Bm.................(Bm/A)
Help! I need somebody 
G...................(G/F#)
Help! Not just anybody
E
Help! You know I need someone,

A..............................................(A/G#)
When I was younger, so much younger than today,
F#m.............................D..................A
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
A
But now those days are gone I'm not so self-assured,
F#m...............................D..................................A
Now I find I've changed my mind, I've opened up the door.

Bm ............................(Bm/A)....G...........................(G/F#) 
Help me if you can I'm feeling down, and I do appreciate you being 'round.
E..................................................A...Bb...A...Bb...A
Help me get my feet back on the ground, won't you please please help me.

(same as above verse)
And now my life has changed in oh so many ways,
My independence seemed to vanish in the haze.
But every now and then I feel so insecure, 
I know that I just need you like I've never done before.

(same)
Help me if you can I'm feeling down, and I do appreciate you being 'round.
Help me get my feet back on the ground, won't you please please help me.

(same)
When I was younger, so much younger than today,
I never needed anybody's help in any way.
But now those days are gone I'm not so self-assured,
Now I find I've changed my mind, I've opened up the door.

Help me if you can I'm feeling down, and I do appreciate you being 'round.
Help me get my feet back on the ground, won't you please please help me.
A...Bb...A...Bb...
Help me, help me, ooo.
