John Butler Trio What You Want chords version 1
There are quite a few tabs here, all of them very good, but they're all in open C tuning. I decided to rework the song into standard because it's a hassle changing tuning so often if you want to busk or whatever. Not being that good a guitarist though, I only translated the chords and not the riffs, but I think it went quite well, so enjoy. Tuning : Standard Chords used : Cadd9 Asus2 Em Bm e:0 e:0 e:0 e:2 B:3 B:0 B:0 B:3 G:0 G:2 G:0 G:4 D:2 D:2 D:2 D:4 A:3 A:0 A:2 A:2 E:x E:x E:0 E:x F#5 G D/F# e:x e:x e:x B:x B:x B:3 G:x G:4 G:2 D:4 D:5 D:0 A:4 A:5 A:0 E:2 E:3 E:2 I included the D/F# chord because in the outro it sounds rather nice and fits just about as well as the F#5 does, so just pick whichever you think sounds best. Intro/Verse: Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | Bm x6Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmWhat you want to say,Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmWait till you get home.Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmI'm sick of communicating over theBm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmTelephone.Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmBut tell me how you feel,Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmI am lonely tooBm Cadd9 Need you to knowAsus2 Em Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | BmI'm just as cold & numb as you.Bridge: Cadd9 - One bar being the length of the four verse chords, play this for 8 bars. There's lots of fiddlyness here, which you could improvise, or figure out from the many tabs. Verse: Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | Bm x4Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmBut I could fly away,Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmOr I could be no one.Bm And you could be theCadd9 Asus2 Em Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmSunshine falling over the MountainsBm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em Or you could come todayBm Cadd9 | Asus2 | EmYou could come right homeBm Cadd9I don't see why I have toAsus2 Em Bm Cadd9 | Asus2 | Em | BmLive this life all alone.Bridge: Cadd9 (Again, there's more fiddly guitar lines here, best to improvise or have a look at the other tabs) I know there is a way to make up for old Mistakes I know what's happening is for a reason Outro: Em | F#5 | G | Asus2 Cadd9 x4 John starts singing as he plays the Em chord, and ends on the Cadd9 which lasts a bar. If he sings words I haven't managed to decipher them, but if you can get the tone with your voice the details don't matter here.
