Smells Like Content - The Books
Tabbed by: Rhys Gerwin

Tuning: BADGBe (DROP B) not 7th fret B


Sorry about the tuning, it's the best way I could figure it out
that I was satisfied with........ It sounds good.

The Chords are (FUCKING) hard. So just bear with me. I can play it
fine it just takes practice.


And I swear it sounds exactly like the song

NOTE: This is the chord progression for basically the entire song till the end. REST OF SONG WITH CHORDS: Esus2 F# but then again the world without end G#sus2 Bsus2 is a place where souls are combined C#sus4 but with an overbearing feeling of disparity, D#sus4 F#sus2 G#sus2 disorderliness to ignore is impossible without getting oneslef into all kinds of trouble F#sus2 Esus2 C#m despite one's best intentions not to get entangled B with it so much Esus2 F#sus2 G#sus2 Bsus2 and meanwhile the C#sus4 D#sus4 statues are bleeding green F#sus2 G#sus2 and others are saying things much better F#sus2 Esus2 C#m B than we ever could as the quiet becomes suddenly verbose ================================================== THE REST OF THE SONG IS THE SAME CHORD PROGRESSION ================================================== and the hail is heralding the size of nickles, and the street corners are gnashing together like gears inside the head of some omnicient engineer and downward flows the garnered wisdom that has never died ================================== THAT ONE REALLY COOL RIFF YOU HEAR ================================== This is actually finger tapping on bass but it sounds okay on guitar.
when finally we opened the box we couldn't find any rules our heads were reeling with a glut of possibilities, contingencies but with ever increasing faith we decided to go ahead and just ingnore them despite tremendous pressure to capitulate and fade so instead we went ahead to fabricate a catalog of unstable elements and modicums and particles with non-zero total strangeness for brief moments which amount to nothing more than tiny fragments of a finger snap (COOL RIFF) and meanwhile we're furiously sleeping green and the map has started tearing along it's creases due to overuse when in reality, it's never needed folds and the air's witholding the sound of its wellspring, and our heads are approacing a density reminiscient of the connectivity of the center of the sun and therein lies the garnered wisdom that has never died (Keep playing the last part of the COOL RIFF for like 4 bars) The outro is just the normal verse chord progression with: expectation leads to disappointment if we don't expect something big, huge, and exciting usually, uh i dont know, it's just not as, yeah | / slide up | \ slide down | h hammer-on | p pull-off | ~ vibrato | + harmonic | x Mute note P.S. Again I'm sorry for the hard to understand tab. This song is hard to play so don't feel bad if you can only play the chords.
