Song: Haven't Slept In Years
Band: Matthew Good Band
Album: raygun EP
Tabbed by: John Metzler 

I haven't listened to the version from their "Last of The Ghetto Astronauts"
album, so I'm not sure if it's any different, but this is the Raygun version
I've tabbed.

The first part is pretty easy to figure out from just listening to the CD, but
if you can't, here's the easy way to do it...

(Version 1)e|---------------------|------------------3----------|B|-3h5--3-0---0-3h5-3--|-3h5--3-0---0-3h5------------|G|---------------------|---------------------0-------|D|---------------------|-----------------------------|A|---------------------|-----------------------------|E|---------------------|-----------------------------|Now the it's just the bass playing the notes E - G - C - D
I saw Matt Good play the above part live and he used a different fingering. I think he played it the Version 2 way so he could get the D string's harmonic on the 12th fret which is indicated by brackets (12).
(Version 2)e|-----------------------------|--------------------------------|B|-----------------------------|--------------------------------|G|-----------------------------|------------------------(12)----|D|-12h14--12---------12h14-12--|-12h14--12---------12h14--------|A|-----------14---14-----------|-----------14---14--------------|E|-----------------------------|--------------------------------|
Then after a verse or two he plays an extended version of that riff which starts off with the above part and then goes on with this...
e|-------------------------------|B|-------------------------------|G|-------------------------------|D|-0---0--0--0---0-------0---0---| Then the gutiar cuts off and the bassA|-10--10h12-12--10------12--10--| slides down the fret board.E|-------------------------------|
Verse: Immediately after Matt sings "'re only human" he comes in with...
Cadd9 Dsus4 Em? Ge|-333---333---333---3---3---3--|B|-333---333---333---3---3---3--|G|-000---222---000---0---0---0--|D|-222---000---222---2---0---2--| This repeats until...A|-333---xxx---222---2---2---3--|E|-xxx---xxx---000---0---3---x--|
Immediately after he sings "'re dead" comes...
Chorus: (X2) Em G Cadd9 Cadd9/D? Haven't slept in years Em G Cadd9 Cadd9/D? Haven't talked to else... Bridge: (individual picking of strings in this part) Cadd2 Dadd9 Cadd2 ....else Anybody else Repeat bridge once, then end with a Dadd9 chord.
Dadd9 Dsus4 Cadd9 Cadd2 Em? D? (what are the last 2 chords called?)e-0 -3 -3 -0 -3 -xB-3 -3 -3 -3 -3 -5G-2 -2 -0 -0 -0 -0D-0 -0 -2 -2 -2 -4A-x -x -3 -3 -2 -5E-x -x -x -x -0 -x
