	        "Believing Is Art" by Spoon (off of Girls Can Tell)
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Email: explodingpandas@verizon.net
Tuning: Standard

One of my favs off of probably my favorite Spoon album. Like most Spoon songs, not too
much in the way of technical skill, but still an awesome song.

All guitar except for where noted is played with a clean tone and relatively quietly.
Since I took the liberty of pointing out just about all of the details, this tab is for
one guitar, although second guitar could play rhythem, which is mostly the chords in the
verse, although you could probably pick it up by ear. 
 
Intro (0:00-0:10, notes ring at 0:04 and 0:09) This part is unnecessary, skip it or havea second guitar play it, as the pre-verse starts before the second note is played.e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|E|-----------0------------------------0----------------------------|
Pre-verse (0:07-0:20) The third time just play the regular A power chord.e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|D|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-------------------------------| x 4A|-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-------------------------------|E|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-8-8-7-7-5-5-5-------------------------------|PM : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : :

Chorus (0:36-0:50)This is the rhythm for the chorus, no there is no singing so it is not technically thechorus but still useful for if you have a second guitar later on.e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|G|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-------------------------------------------------|D|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|A|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-|E|-----------------5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-|PM : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : : :

Chorus (1:05-1:19) With distortion (every chorus and riff similar to this from here onout has distortion. If you can't figure it out, just listen to the song). For the 7b8,keep the string bent instead of bending it each time (this also applies to the rest ofthe song).e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|-------5-7-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-5---------------5-----|G|-----5-5-7-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-7b8-5-5-----------5-5-5---|D|-----7---------------------------------------7-----------7---7---|A|-----0---------------------------------------0-----------0---0---|E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

A few details were left out because I'm lazy, as was a lot of the rhythm since this is only for one guitar. A lot of the stuff I left out is fairly easy to pick up by ear. Also, you can obviously improv on the chorus, but I tried to tab it as closely as possible.
