"Down Together" - The Refreshments
(from the album "Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big and Buzzy", 1996)

Tabbed by Des McKinney
All the lead guitar parts are listed first (there're
a bunch of them for this song). If you're playing
it by yerself, just ignore all the riffs here, and
go with the chords listed below with the lyrics
(Chord chart at end). For the most part, it's just 

INTRO: (The rythym guitar is just playing the chords
        with some right-hand muting)

Date: Tue, 10 Dec 1996 22:32:42 -0500 (EST) From: Subject: TAB: "Down Together" by The Refreshments Since there are currently no tabs for The Refreshments, I figured I would place the first one in the archive. Although I am not a huge fan of The Refreshments, one of my best friends is. And, as a result, I figured this little bit out. I apologize that this is all I have but I do not even own the CD. Maybe if someone else is interested, they could figure out the leads or the changes. Regardless, here is the main riff.
------------------------------------------------ ------------------------------------------------ -2-2-2-------4-4-4-------7-7-7-------9-9-9------ -2-2-2-------4-4-4-------7-7-7-------9-9-9------ -o-o-o--o-o--2-2-2--2-2--5-5-5--5-5--7-7-7--7-7- ------------------------------------------------ *(A)*********(B5)*********(D5)*********(E5)*****
*********************NOTE*********************** As I am sure you already know, these chords are palm muted. However, this might/probably change(s) somewhere in the song but I rest assured that you will know where and when.
