Parachute tab with lyrics by Guster for guitar @ Guitaretab

Guster – Parachute tab

I searched across the web and just could not find a tab accurate enough to actually play
the song with. I decided to take it into my own hands and here's my first tab submission

Tune guitar to an open D chord:

D |---down whole stepA |---down whole stepF#|---down half stepD |---A |---D |---down whole step
Intro: * = Harmonic
|---12*-----------12*---||---12*-----------12*---||---12*--goes to--13----| Just listen to|---12*-----------12*---| find out rhythm.|---12*-----------12*---||---12*-----------12*---|
|---0-----0---------0---------4---------5----------| Open D (all strings)|---0----------------------------------------------| is occaisionally thrown|---0----------------------------------------------| in. Just listen for it |---0--------3-3-3-----3-3-3-----3-3-3-----3-3-3---| and also just listen to|---0--------5-5-5-----5-5-5-----5-5-5-----5-5-5---| find out the strumming|---0----------------------------------------------| pattern.
This continues for a while until "Find myself convincing...." Verse 2:
|---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---| Each chord is strummed a number of|---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---| times before going to the next one,|---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---| I just didn't feel like writing that|---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---| many chords.|---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---||---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---|
|---5---4---2---0---5---4---2---| Again each chord is strummed|---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---| more than just once.....|---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---||---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---||---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---||---5---4---2---0---5---4---2---|
Verse (not so long this time, only goes to "How much strength does it take") Then:
|---0---0---4---5---| Again, each are strummed multiple times,|---0---0---0---0---| and listen to get rhythm right - sometimes|---0---0---0---0---| the bass notes are strummed and then the |---0---0---0---0---| full chords.|---0---0---0---0---||---0---0---0---0---|
Verse 2 Bridge And finally......
|---7---9---------------------------||---5---9---------------------------| |---0---8---REPEAT THIS TILL END---| Must I say to strum each chord|---0---0---------------------------| alot, about say....24 times???|-----------------------------------||-----------------------------------|
Anyway that's about it. Hopefully I provided you with an accurate and playable tab to the best of my first-time-tabbing abilities. This is in my opinion one of the best Guster songs and I hope you enjoy listening to and playing it as much as I have.
