Phoenix - Girlfriend tab version 1

Phoenix Girlfriend

From Live in Sydney, although you can play it with the album and still sound good

Intro

Just bar on 4 and tap the 7th and 6th frets with your right index finger.|-----------------|||74747474---------|||--------64646464.|| x4|----------------.|||-----------------|||-----------------||
That goes twice and then the intro where you play these chords B Em7 C#m|-7-----6-----4-------||-7-----7-----5-------||-8-----6-----6-------||-9-----8-----6-------||-9-----6-----4-------||-7-------------------|
It's just B for the first 16 and the second 16 the Em7 plays for a little bit; listen to the live recording for the pattern. The verse riff is this:
|--------------------------||--------------------------||--------------------------||------11------------------||9-9-----9-999-9-9---------||--------------------------|"Tired out, not a miracle in days, etc"
Play it palm muted and every fourth time play this instead.
|------------------------------||------------------------------||------------------------------||------------------------------||-11-9-11-9-11-9-11-9----------||------------------------------|
For the prechorus, play this twice
|------------------------------||------------------------------||------------------------------||--11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-----||-9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9-------||------------------------------|"Die and succeed, I say it out loud but you just don't care"
And then these power chords (I tried to explain the strumming pattern but just listen to the song)
|-----------------------------------------------------------------------||-----------------------------------------------------------------------||-999-9-9-9-11-11-11-11-111113-13-13-13-13139-9-9-9-9911-11-11-11-1111--||-999-9-9-9-11-11-11-11-111113-13-13-13-13139-9-9-9-9911-11-11-11-1111--||-777-7-7-7-9--9--9--9--9 9 11-11-11-11-11117-7-7-7-779--9--9--9--9-9---||-----------------------------------------------------------------------|"Farewell well well well well well well, etc"
And do the opening chord sequence again
B Em7 C#m|-7-----6-----4-------||-7-----7-----5-------||-8-----6-----6-------||-9-----8-----6-------||-9-----6-----4-------||-7-------------------|"Girlfriend"
For the third verse it's the same thing and for the fourth it is silent. At the end before the prechorus play these notes|--7p4------7p4-------7p4------7p4------7p4------||-----7p4------7p4-------7p4------7p4------7p4---||--------6p4------6p4------6p4------6p4-------6p4||------------------------------------------------||------------------------------------------------||------------------------------------------------|
The rest is just the prechorus chords and then the chorus chords twice. *************************************************************************** Lyrics: Tired out, not a miracle in days Deciders for the lonely whispering tears You try out for nothing then you drop dead, not a miracle in years Leisure for the lonely whispering unnecessary unless you're in Die and succeed I say it out loud but you just don't care Farewell, well, well, well, well, well, well 'til you know me well Farewell, well, well, well, well, well, well 'til you know me well Girlfriend We are far from home, I am with you now I'm am longing you, I am longing us two Who bought a miracle sells these fortune tears December's death or glory how you want it?
