                          CAN YOU TELL - Ra Ra Riot

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 -
A (x2) Bm C#m

timing is pretty simple -

        Oh      have I been     too dis-        creet?
A               Bm              C#m             A

        How     long am I sup-  posed to        wait?
A               Bm              C#m             A

        I       think about you nightl-         y
A               Bm              C#m             A

     Oh can you tell    I'm     lo-     sing    sleep?
A               Bm              C#m             A

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

e|-----------9----------9----------9----------9--|
B|-----10---------10---------10---------10-------|
