Snow Patrol - Tiny Little Fractures tab

Tiny Little Fractures
by Snow Patrol (off the album Final Straw, 2004)

I'm gonna try and get the whole song tabbed. The chord structure differs slightly at the 
and chorus, and there's a couple of guitar parts which come in at different points. 
here it is! I figured it's played mainly on power chords.

_____________________________________________________________________________
INTRO [0:00]
_____________________________________________________________________________

One guitar at this point plays a harmonic which rings for a while, I think it's this 
play it just above the 3rd fret:

e|--------|B|--------|G|--------|D|--------|A|-<3.0>--|E|--------|
Guitar two[0:03]
e|-----------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------7---7---7-7-7-7---|D|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7---7---7---7-7-7-7---|A|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7---5---5---5-5-5-5---|E|-5---5---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------------------|
e|----------------|B|----------------|G|----------------|D|-5-5---5-7-7-5--| x4A|-5-5-0-5-7-7-5--|E|-3-3-0-3-5-5-3--|
Guitar one[0:16] after the second Guitar playing
e|--------|B|--------|G|--------|D|-<3.2>--|A|--------|E|--------|
It then backs up Guitar two, either with an open A (002220) or with this chord. Note a strange strumming pattern, listen to the song to work it out ;).e|------------------------|B|------------------------|G|-6-------5-5---5h6p5----|D|-7-----------7-------7--|A|-7----------------------|E|-5----------------------| *Quietly, first time only
_____________________________________________________________________________ VERSE [0:30] _____________________________________________________________________________ I'm not sure but looking at the videos I think both guitars play this. It's a similar pattern as guitar two on the intro:
e|---------------|B|---------------|G|---------------|D|-7------4---5--| x4A|-7------4---5--|E|-5------2---3--|
_____________________________________________________________________________ CHORUS [0:58] _____________________________________________________________________________ Guitar two:
e|-----------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------7---7---7-7-7-7---|D|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7---7---7---7-7-7-7---|A|-7---7---7-7-7-7---7-7-7-7-7-7-7---5---5---5-5-5-5---|E|-5---5---5-5-5-5---5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------------------|
e|----------------|B|----------------|G|----------------|D|-5-5---5-7-7-5--| x4A|-5-5-0-5-7-7-5--|E|-3-3-0-3-5-5-3--|
Guitar one:
e|--------|B|--------|G|-6------|D|-7------|A|-7------|E|-5------|Played as in the intro, or the open A (002220)._____________________________________________________________________________VERSE [1:25]_____________________________________________________________________________
Same as verse 1. _____________________________________________________________________________ CHORUS [1:53] _____________________________________________________________________________ Both guitars play the same as in the first chorus, but an extra guitar (dubbed) TREMELO (meaning really really constantly fast picking) the following notes:
e|----------------------|B|----------------------|G|-12-----11-----5----\-|D|----------------------|A|----------------------|E|----------------------|_____________________________________________________________________________OUTRO [2:20]_____________________________________________________________________________
All guitars go quiet, but guitar one plays this harmonic which goes into feedback:e|--------|B|-<15>---|G|--------|D|--------| (or equivalent)A|--------|E|--------|_____________________________________________________________________________
LYRICS: (Aaaaaaaaaaaaah) (x3) Verse: Is there a place I can go Is there a light to get me there If I've forgotten what to say It's because all words are dust If this is really what you think How come you won't look me in the eye All this crying in your sleep As I lie awake beside Chorus: Woah woah woah yeah (x4) Verse: Is there a T-shirt I can wear Coz I am soaking look at me What do you mean I don't love you I am standing here, aren't I Maybe you thought of it first Maybe I get all the praise Is there a place I can go Is there a light to get me there. Chorus: Woah woah woah yeah (x4) _____________________________________________________________________________ Key: / - Slide up \ - Slide down b - Bend r - Return x - Mute PM - Palm mute ~ - Let ring/vibrato h - Hammer-on p - Pull-off <> - Harmonic
