The Weakerthans - Prescience of Dawn

Hey, I basically just put this over here from the forums, for more public use.  All
to Zach on the Weakerthans fan board, http://theweakerthans.tk/. Have fun. :)

Begins with a build up on B: one guitar strums once, the other repeatedly, then itís
chords: G5 A5 B5. I think you hit the open the open G on all of these chords but its really
and that just doesnít sound too good an acoustic)
With this riff played over it: I didnt put all the cool electric noisy bits cause it
doesnít work on acoustic)
(INTRO RIFF)

E|---------------------------------------|B|---------------------------------------|G|-6-7--9-7-------6-7--9-7---------------|D|-----------9--------------7------------|A|---------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------2-3--3-5--|

'That one dream of hardware stores and checkered floors...'2 guitars playing basically the same chords, but these probably arenít the correctbut I can fix that next time I see them live :)(CHORUS) one guitar holds the chord while one plays the lil' riff.E|--------------------------------------|B|-------------------------7^7----------|G|------------------------------9-7-6---|D|-4--5--7--9-7-4--5--7-----------------|A|-5--5--7--9-7-5--5--7-----------------|E|-2--3--5--7-5-2--3--5-----------------|
