NOTES ABOUT SONG: This is the live version of Rose Colored Stain
Glass Windows that appears on Front Yard Luge. It differs from the
album version primarily in its layering: the electric guitar is much
more prominent live, while the original version (which appeared on
"Never Say Dinosaur") is much more acoustic-natured and even has a
mandolin in the intro. The electric has some pretty heavy distortion
on it, along with some overdrive and a quick wah near the end and the
acoustic has some heavy chorus on it. Also, watch the rhythm in the
acoustic riff-it's slightly different from the original version in
timing and the F in on the d-string comes sooner than expected (listen and
you'll hear it-it's syncopated).

Intro Acoustic riff (used throughout the song):|-----1--0-1-1-----1--0-1-1-1-1--||-----3--3-3-3-----3--3-3-3-3-3--||-----2--2-2-2-----2--2-2-2-2-2--||-0-0---------3-3----------------||--------------------------------||--------------------------------| Dm Dm/F*the above is considered one bar of intro riff
The intro comprises of: 2 bars intro acoustic riff 2 bars intro acoustic riff with vocal "na na"s 4 bars intro acoustic riff with vocal "na na"s and electric strums on Dm (but not on the Dm/F) VERSE ONE-acoustic plays chords, electric arpeggios Bb C Dm Another sleepy Sunday, safe within the walls Bb C Dm Outside a dying world in desperation calls Gm F C Dm But no one hears the cries, or knows what they're about Gm Bb F C The doors are locked within, or is it from without? For the verses, the electric plays mostly arpeggios with a few straight strums. Here's a pretty close tab of what the electric plays:
