The Academy Is - The Test Acoustic chords

Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
   This is my first tab, I tabbed it from the video of Michael Guy Chislett and William
doing an acoustic version.  This video can be found on fbrplus.com.  I do not own this
in any way, and these chords are simply my enterpretation of the song. Also, I know I 
some of the chord names wrong, sorry about that.

Hope it helps.

Verse 1:

Palm mute, slightly accentuate 2&4

              G                Cadd9
Look like a lush, Talk like a tease,

Em7     D/F#  Cadd9
The way you like it.

                  G                   Cadd9
In front of your house, alone on the street,

    Em7     D/F#   Cadd9
you ask me to come in-side.

No Palm Mute
Cadd9 (one strum)              (See First Filler)
Asleep through all our classes,
Cadd9 (one strum)
you hang me out to dry.
[ Tab from: http://www.guitaretab.com/t/the-academy-is/191890.html ]
Chorus Chords:  (no palm-mute)
              G                  Cadd9
If this is a test, Iím losing my shit
                      Em7    D/F#      Cadd9
Would it kill you to care as much as I did,
              G                    Cadd9
If this is a test, Iím wasting my breath
           Em7    D/F#     Cadd9
Youíre a stranger I know well, and not at all.


(While playing intro you can sing the do do do do do part that william sings)

Verse 1 Chords
Heart on a hook,
thrown out to the sea,
your basement busy.
Sitting in the dark,
I turn the radio off for a
phone call youíll likely miss.
Wake me when itís over.
The last sound of goodbye.

Chorus:
If this is a test, Iím losing my shit
Would it kill you to care as much as I did?
If this is a test, Iím wasting my breath
Youíre a stranger I know well, and not at all.

Intro again

First filler twice (in between each filler, chislett taps his guitar three times on the
then plays again.)


Bridge:
Palm mute similar to verse.
          Em7      D/F#           Cadd9                 Em7 D/F# Cadd9
"Letís imagine the end before we even begin," you said.
"Let's imagine the end before we even begin," you said. (you said, you said)

Chorus:
If this is a test, Iím losing my shit
Would it kill you to care, as much as I did
If this is a test, Iím wasting my breath
Youíre a stranger I know well, and not at all.

If this is a test, I'm losing my shit
Would it kill you to care, as much as i did
If this is a test, I'm wasting my breath
You'res a stranger I know well, and not at all.
