Voxtrot - Real Life Version
Tabbed by Vance Berisford

I figured this song out on the piano first. I transcribed it to guitar to see how it
and I think it works pretty well. Let me know if you have any questions, comments, or

Dropped-D, Capo 1

The tuning/capo is done to help make the chorus part sound better. All numbers and chord
are relative to the capo. If you are going to learn this on piano, you'll need to shift
the chords a half-step to account for the fact that I'm giving chords relative to the 
I put the non-transcribed chords at the bottom of this to help with that.

The chord progression for the intro and verses are basically:
Bm-G-Gbm-A

Since we're in dropped-D with a capo on 1, those chords look like:

Bm G Gbm A----------------|--3--------(2)--|--4--4--2---2---|--4--5--4---2---|--2--5--4---0---|-----5--4-------|
The strumming pattern goes like this:-----------------------------------------------------------|-3----3-----3-----3----------------------------------------|-4----4-----4-----4----------------------------------------|-4----4-----4-----4----------------------------------------|-2-------2-----2-----2-------------------------------------|-----------------------------------------------------------|
Bm G Love, spread out like seeds Gbm A (etc) Somebody walked away from landscaped poverty I came to find you I came to see the beauty underway That bloomed love, energy (Play a few extra bars of A before doing the verse chords again) Cm And it turns around like you Ab And it turns around like me Gm Into something new Bb But the only thing I see The chorus is basically three variations on D. Being in Dropped-D with a capo on 1 lets get a really full sound out of the chords here.

I see you, I see you I see you, always struggling (Repeat verse) To find some gentle song Some mode of simple trust and ways to understand These reaching orchards Of broken fame Grown deep inside of us By forced and troubled hands (Repeat chorus) I see you, I see you I see you, always struggling I see you, I see you I see you, always struggling Bridge progression is like this: Bb-A-Dm-A-Dm-A-Bm-Db I prefer the bar chords here (ie, x5775x works better for Dm than xx0231), but you can open chords if they're more natural to you. Bb To find the sun A Reaching down through shadowed brush Dm Breaking off the bitter branch A Twisted roots like tails Dm Dreams of all these spotlit kings A Drinking up the light Bm Like California redwoods Db Splitting up the night This part is basically with the same progression as the first two verses, but the 4th is different: Bm-G-Gbm-Dm And it turns around like you And it turns around like me All the talking we could do Oh if only we could be A real life version of you A real life version of you And a real life version of me A real life version of me I see you, I see you I see you, always struggling I see you, I see you I see you, always struggling If you are going to learn this on piano or don't have a capo, here's your chords: The verses would be: Cm-Ab-Gm-Bb The chorus is variations of Eb (you'll have to figure them out from the tab; I have no what the chord names are). The bridge is this: B-Bb-Ebm-Bb-Ebm-Bb-Cm-D And the last verse is Cm-Ab-Gm-Ebm
