Hello.

Can anyone tell me the chords or even better does anyone have a tab for the live version of Switching Off, found on the Live in London album or here... (skip to 1:50) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kdwt-x2fQ4g. I can't quite figure it out.

Thanks

J

Elbow
Switching off (acoustic version)
Fugitive motel single CD1

Tab by Gaz


This is a great track played acoustically, sounds better than the original off the album in my opinion.

It's fingerpicked and I've broken it down into sections, once you get the pattern it's pretty easy. The only bit im not 100% on is the end of the bridge but it'll do!

Chords: (not to sure of the names! No strings are muted they're just not played)

In time
With you

Early evening June
This room and the radio play
This I need to save
I choose my final scene today

Switching off with you





MOD EDIT: Removed 'Code' tags as they are not relevant and render the tab unreadable. MT

MOD EDIT #2 : Changed font to Courier.

Lewis, you're a God amongst men. Don't suppose you could tab Mark's guitar in Newborn could you? Do it and I'll spoon you forever.

No worries, I did these ages ago and put them up on powderblue but I guess that died a death. Youll have to copy and paste these into notebook or word, font courier new to get the right spacings. The code was there for a reason moderator!!

Sorry wretch not gonna be able to fulfill your request, not enough time, I just thought I'd post a few tabs I had on my hard drive.

Fair enough, but you have to admit it wasn't really possible to read all your hard work...why didn't you just use Courier?
