Mac Demarco - Ode To Viceroy tab

                                 Mac DeMarco - Ode to Viceroy
                                    from his 2012 album '2'

Capo on 2nd fret. I've tabbed everything the same as a regular fretboard (i.e. not in relation
to the capo, so for example the 2nd fret means the 2nd fret as well-  the 2nd fret becomes the
open strings technically, so you don't have to fret them with the capo on.) If you don't own a
capo, or just don't feel like playing with one on, there are ways to play the chords without a
capo, which I have tabbed where appropriate.

Also, this is was actually recorded a quarter step higher, but it's quite hard to tune up a
quarter step because it's halfway between two different notes, so I've just tabbed it out in
standard. It will sound good playing on your own (in fact you pretty much won't be able to
tell any difference at all), but you probably won't be able to play along with the recording
accuarately unless you tune up a quarter step.


Intro - each time you strum each chord, you have to slightly dip your whammy bar;
wherever there's a "w" that means dip your whammy bar:

Just tryin' to let the sun in,
And open up my eyes,
Viceroy, as it's getting later,
Headin' for the corner,
Already runnin' dry"

Headin' for the corner,
I'm leavin' it to you"
