Fat Freddys Drop – Hope For A Generation tab

Song:		Hope for a Generation
Artist:		Fat Freddy's Drop
Album:		Hope for a Generation EP
tabbed by James van Rooyen

A long song, hopefully you don't get lost in the tab. If in doubt, just use the Am & C chords.
I've divided the songs into 2 parts, the second part starts at 5:37
For the most part the song is in Am, so any fills you find you should be able to
figure out using the Am scale. Sorry for not tabbing them all out, but it'd just 
get too messy, but
do take the time to figure them out and put them in at the end of each line, because 
fit really well.

Main Riff:E-------------------------------------------------|B-------------------------------------------------|G--------------2-0-2-0----------------------------|D-----2-2-2-2------------------5-5-5-5----5-------|A-0-0------------------7-5-3-3----------3---------|E-------------------------------------------3-4-5-|
Main riff as intro a few times, then come in with the chords: Main chords: For both verse & chorus of first part of song, lyrics incl.

Second part of song: This is a call & reponse, so you'd play the first part, eg the 8-8-10-8 on the guitar (in the record, it's the brass), and then sing the same notes. Towards the end it's still call and response, however Joe sings different notes to what the brass plays. Finally, after the singing, the brass comes in with their solo.
E-----------------------------------------------11p10p8-8--------|B-8-8-10-8--------8-10/13-10------8-8-10-8----8------------------|G----------------------------------------------------------------|D----------------------------------------------------------------|A----------------------------------------------------------------|E----------------------------------------------------------------| Love for music... A love for music... The music is me The music is you
E-------------11p10p8-8------------------------------------------|B-8-10/13-13-----------------------------------------------------|G----------------------------------------------5*----------------|D----------------------------------------------7b9---------------|A----------------------------------------------------------------|E----------------------------------------------------------------| Music can be Something we do Because the music is good and the music is right etc
*Note: The words 'good' and 'right', etc, are sung using the C note (where the * is in the riff above) while the guitar bends from the 7 to the 9. Together (voice & guitar) make up part of a C major chord.
E-----------------3-3--------------------------------------------|B-----------3-4-5-----4------------------------------------------|G--5-5-5--5-------------5----------------------------------------|D----------------------------------------------------------------|A----------------------------------------------------------------|E----------------------------------------------------------------| It's the thing I do to get me through...
After this, you can solo in Cm, finishing off with this lick a couple times:E----------------------------------------------------------------|B----------------------------------------------------------------|G--/9~--7-9-7~-5-------------------------------------------------|D----------------------------------------------------------------|A----------------------------------------------------------------|E----------------------------------------------------------------|And back to the intro riff, with Am fills as with the first part of the song.
