Dirty Projectors - Thirsty And Miserable tab

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
DIRTY PROJECTORS - THIRSTY AND MISERABLE - RISE ABOVE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: Tom Rozwadowski
Date: 22/08/2011

This tab is based on the Dave Longstreth solo performance 
of Thirsty and Miserable at Permanent Records in Chicago, 4/3/2008.

LINK: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XdT0N4GOydo

I tabbed this version because I think the structure works better for playing solo 
as it omits most of the instrumental sections found on the album take (i.e 3'00''-4'00').
Overall though it is pretty much the same, save a few differences in structure 
(most notably the addition of a 3rd verse near the end, though it's actually just a 
repeat of the 1st verse) so it shouldn't be too hard to take the material presented 
here and restructure it to fit the album version.

Most of the song is made up of repeated sections to which Dave adds
different variations, I can't say I've managed to tab them all, and Mr Longstreth 
is known for improvising a lot on his guitar parts each time he plays them, so if 
you figure out any variations from other recordings or even make up your own 
go ahead and add them in your playing!

This is my first tab so I'm sure there are plenty of mistakes/missed notes, so any 
amendments are very welcome.

LEGEND:

| s: slide
| h: hammer on
| ~ : spread chord
| STRUM LOOSELY: strum the chord shifting the emphasis onto different parts of 
the chord, i.e going from strumming the whole chord to just the lower strings or vice 
versa. If you watch the youtube video it should become much clearer.

Standard tuning
Capo on 3rd fret
