HARBORCOAT

{This song is actually played in Eb on the record. This transcription in 
 E won't go along much with the album unless you tune down.}

  C#m                   E                               A  B

 They crowded up together with their noses worn off
 A handshake is worthy it's all that you've got
 Metal shoes on wood pushed her right back
 There's a splinter in your eye it reads react R-E-A-C-T
 
{break  Em  with 12th fret harmonics  played as fast and
 furiously as a trainload of Jews fleeing Nazi Germany!}

 They've shifted the statues for harboring ghosts
 Redden their necks color their clothes

All this hea...............bleah, bleah.........etc....... Now play the TAB stuff again, then verse #3, then chorus again, ends on F#m. ("Pretty persuay".) ------ TIME AFTER TIME (ANNELISE) The tune is in E flat, but uses standard RES chord shapes. Play the main riff and chorus on a guitar tuned to F, or tuned normally and capoed to the first fret, or tuned to E flat and capoed on the second fret. Play the 2nd guitar part on a guitar tuned to E flat, so you can get the drone effect. You can just play the 1st and 2nd strings if you want. Play the 3rd guitar part (ringing chords) on a guitar tuned to E flat, using this shape: Eb chord shape: 079900
Main riff (tune to F or capo 1st fret)F--|-0----0-0-0---3-3-sl-5-0---- This is the main riff and repeats many timesC--|-3----3-3-3---3-3--------0-- throughout the song. I believe that the mainAb-|-2----2-2-2---2-2----------- chord here is Dsus2 with some extra pickingEb-|-0----0-0-0---0-0----------- thrown in. Wierd, but not so hard once you getBb-|---------------------------- the hang of it. Tune to F to maximize ringingF--|---------------------------- of open strings. (Or play in standard tuning with capo on 1st fret).

Eb Ask the girl of the hour, by the water tower's watch Go and fight if you want but who will turn out the light Fm Ab Eb Time after Time after Time Time after time after time End on Eb chord (7th fret) Notes: There are three guitars on this song. One (tuned to F?) plays the main riff. The second basically drones on Eb notes, played on two strings at once. A 12 string would be ideal for this part. A third guitar plays the Eb chord on the seventh fret (with open Eb and Bb strings). It sounds like there's more going on due to the interaction of these parts. ------ LETTER NEVER SENT This, as most songs on Reckoning, is based on the D chord. I play it by making a D chord but without putting my first finger on the high E string. This makes it easier to do the fingerings needed for this song. Basically it goes pretty much like this :
----------------------------------------------------------------- -----------------------3----------------------------------------- ----------------------------------------------------------------- 0-0-0-0-4-4-4-4-2-2-2----0---0----------------------------------- 2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-0-0-0------3------------------------------------- -----------------------------------------------------------------
After the beginning part there are these series of chords : D D D D G G C C C C D D D D G G C C C C And then the chorus: A G A G A G Heaven's yours Heavens yours Heavens yours...etc There there is this part: Bm A D Bm A G When I'm moving too fast Where's my new adress CAMERA So, let's call this "riff a".
D(4) !0-----------0-2-!3-------------0-!2---------------!----------------!A(5) !----------------!----------------!----------------!------0---0---0-!
D(4) !0-----------0-2-!3-------------0-!2---------------!----------------!A(5) !----------------!----------------!----------------!1-----1---0---0-!
That's the first eight measures of the song. In fact, that's the bass line for all the verses. If you have a bass and a guitar both, the bass should play this throughout (except for the chorus) and the guitar should not come in until the third line of the first verse ("when the party lulls..."). If you have just a guitar, then you should play this for the first two lines of the first verse. We'll call this "riff b".
e(1) !5-------------5-!----------------!------3---------!0-----0-----0---!B(2) !3-----------3---!------3---------!----0-----0-----!--3-----3-----3-!G(3) !2---------2-----!--2-------2-----!--2---------2---!----0-----0-----!D(4) !0-------0-------!3-----------3-0-!2-------------2-!----------------!
There is, of course, ad lib. on the actual recording, but this is the basic pattern.
And this is "riff c". (slide)e(1) !------------5/10!8---------------!7-------------!----------------!B(2) !----------3-----!--------------10!---------10p8h!10----10--------!
G(3) !--------2-------! (pull-off and hammer-on)D(4) !0---------------!
or, another way that might be easier:e(1) !------------5/10!8-------------5h!7---------5--p3!5-----5---------!B(2) !----------3-----!G(3) !--------2-------!D(4) !0---------------!(the more I play it over, the better I like this fingering...)
Also, throughout the chorus, there's a pretty typical sus4/add2 chord pattern; for example, on the D chord, do something like this to the note on e(1): e(1) !2-----2-2-3---5-!--3---2---0---2-! Do the same thing on the second string while playing the A chord at the end of the chorus. On the C chord, hammer-on to the third fret on the second string (Cadd2) in a similar pattern. Now that _that's_ all done with... verse 1 /From the inside room when the front room green riff a \Becomes your special book, it was simple then riff b When the party lulls, if we fall by the side riff b Will you be remembered? Will she be remembered? (Asus4/A) chorus G D C D Alone in a crowd, a bartered lantern borrowed G D C A If I'm to be your camera, then who will be your film? verse 2 riff b I fell by your bed once; I didn't want to tell you riff b I should keep myself inbetween th pages riff b When the party lulls, if we fall by the side riff b Will you be remembered? Will she be remembered? (Asus4/A) chorus play riff c twice, then: verse 3 riff c From the inside room when the front room green riff b Becomes your special book, it was simple then riff b When the party lulls, if we fall by the side riff b I still like you; can you rememeber? (Asus4/A) chorus twice That's about all there is to it! Enjoy!
