John Butler Trio What You Want chords
Highlighted Show chord diagrams
There are quite a few tabs here, all of them very good, but they're all in open C tuning. I decided to rework the song into standard because it's a hassle changing tuning so often if you want to busk or whatever. Not being that good a guitarist though, I only translated the chords and not the riffs, but I think it went quite well, so enjoy. Tuning : Standard Chords used : Cadd9 Asus2 Em Bm e:0 e:0 e:0 e:2 B:3 B:0 B:0 B:3 G:0 G:2 G:0 G:4 D:2 D:2 D:2 D:4 A:3 A:0 A:2 A:2 E:x E:x E:0 E:x F#5 G D/F# e:x e:x e:x B:x B:x B:3 G:x G:4 G:2 D:4 D:5 D:0 A:4 A:5 A:0 E:2 E:3 E:2 I included the D/F# chord because in the outro it sounds rather nice and fits just about as well as the F#5 does, so just pick whichever you think sounds best. Intro/Verse: Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | Bm x6 Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em What you want to say, Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em Wait till you get home. Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em I'm sick of communicating over the Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em Telephone. Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em But tell me how you feel, Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em I am lonely too Bm Cadd9 Need you to know Asus2 Em Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | Bm I'm just as cold & numb as you. Bridge: Cadd9 - One bar being the length of the four verse chords, play this for 8 bars. There's lots of fiddlyness here, which you could improvise, or figure out from the many tabs. Verse: Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | Bm x4 Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em But I could fly away, Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em Or I could be no one. Bm And you could be the Cadd9 Asus2 Em Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em Sunshine falling over the Mountains Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em Or you could come today Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em You could come right home Bm Cadd9 I don't see why I have to Asus2 Em Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | Bm Live this life all alone. Bridge: Cadd9 (Again, there's more fiddly guitar lines here, best to improvise or have a look at the other tabs) I know there is a way to make up for old Mistakes I know what's happening is for a reason Outro: Em | F#5 | G | Asus2 Cadd9 x4 John starts singing as he plays the Em chord, and ends on the Cadd9 which lasts a bar. If he sings words I haven't managed to decipher them, but if you can get the tone with your voice the details don't matter here.
