                      She Just Wants To Be - R.E.M
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: acoustic-fish
Tuning: EADGBEe (standard)

ok, this is my first tab, so i dont know how its going to turn out. the song is actually 
with two guitars, rhythm and lead. the rhythm guitar plays the verse and bridge, and 
lead plays the solos, and the chorus riff. i have 'simplified' it into one guitar part,
but that means that i havent tabbed the chords for the chorus. the timing is off as well, 
to the song.

verse the verse is arpeggios with a few hammer-on's. the number of A minors changes in each listen to the song for the exact timing here are the complete lyrics for this verse: its not that she walked away. her world got smaller. all the usual places, the same destinations, only something's changed its not that she wasnt rewarded with pomegranite afternoons of mingus, chet baker and chess. its not stampeding fortune or prim affectations. she's off on her own and she knows now

bridgenot sure about this bit, its where a whole load of other stuff comes in and muffles it slightly.

chorus the chorus riff is quite hard to hear above the singing, but a friend of mine let me a live recording that they got as part of the REM fan club where you can hear it a lot this is the best i could do with it... lyrics: she just wants to be somewhere, she just wants to be she just wants to be somewhere, she just wants to be

verse 2 as i said before, the number of A minors changes for each verse, so here is the amount the second verse... Am Am Am Am its not that the transparency of her earlier incarnations Am C Em Am Am Am now looked back on werent rich and loaded with beautiful vulnerability C Em and now she knows Bridge with the lyrics: Dm F Dm F now is greater, and she knows that Chorus
Riffthis bit is about 90% correct, if there are any corrections, please leave a comment. the timing is off, so listen to the song to get it exactly right e|-----------------|-----------------|---------------0-|-3---------------| B|---1-------------|-----------------|---------1--3----|-----------------| G|--2--2-0----2----|--2-4-5-4-2-0-2--|--0-2-4----------|-----------------| D|--------------2--|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| A|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------| E|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|-----------------|

bridge lyrics: Dm F Dm F now is greater. now is greater, and she knows that chorus twice. verse 3 Am Am its not like if angels could truly look down Am Am stir up the trappings and light on the ground Am Am Am Am remind us of what, when, why or who that how's up to us, me and you Am Am Am and now is greater than the whole of the past C Em is greater and now she knows that

thats it, hope you like it. overall i reckon its about 65% correct, but hey, it still my tab. the lyrics are 100% correct, cos they were written inside the album cover. enjoy! | / slide up | slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note ===========================================================================
