Arab Strap – Dream Sequence tab

Dream Sequence - Arab Strap
Tabbed by Adam Carrington (Glasgow)

It's cliche but this is my first tab. I love Arab Strap.

Key of C

This is the piano riff:

E|----------------|----------| |------------------------------------------|B|----------------|----4-6---| |-------------------4-6-------4-6--------4-|G|-5----5-3---3-5-|--5-------|x2|-5-5-5-3---3-5-5-5-----5-5-5-----3-3-3-5--|D|----------5-----|----------| |---------5--------------------------------|A|----------------|----------| |------------------------------------------|E|----------------|----------| |------------------------------------------|
*play Cs and A#s as 'A' shape barres and the Fs and the Gs as 'E' shape barres* Verse 1 C A# Give me your jibberish tonight And talk to me with your eyes shut Make me giggle in your sleep F G And I can dream that you're a slut And when I wake up stiff please Just feel free to use me Them go to work and let me wonder What it was that made you choose me Instrumenal chorus *play the piano riff* *...or these chords as 'A' shape barres* C, A# C, A# C, C# D#, A# Verse 2 Chorus Verse 3 *just play the root notes to the chords* C, A# x7 G, F Final Chorus C A# C A# There's no better journey than me on my way to you C C# D# A# Sitting there all smug knowing what we might get up to And one day we'll be idle and we'll both be past our peak So until then all we can do is master our technique So lets sleep... Outro I think Malcolm's guitar is playing the chorus chords as D shape barre chords up the I play it like so:
E|-x-x-x-x---x--x--x--x--x--x--x- x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--|B|-13-13-13--11-11-11-11-11-11-11 x2 13-13-13-13-14-14-14-14-17-17-17-17-11-|G|-12-12-12--10-10-10-10-10-10-10 12-12-12-12-13-13-13-13-16-16-16-16-10-|D|-x-x-x-x---x--x--x--x--x--x--x- x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--x--|A|------------------------------- ---------------------------------------|E|------------------------------- ---------------------------------------|
for the ending, play the piano riff an octave up the neck, so repeat the pattern with the 17th fret on the G string. I hope you find this tab useful. theres lots of space in this song, so learn your C scale and let loose a bit, especially at the end. maybe a cheeky wah... Adam
