Ariel Pink - Round and Round Tab & Chords


Feel like this was the best song of 2k10 and couldn't find a tab anywhere so here it is:

  Intro: nah, nah... F#m/C#m/E(stabs) 
nah, nah... C#m/F#m/E (stabs)

C#m
E|

G| Main Riff
D|
A|9 11 7 9 11 7 4
E|
change
You (D) play (C#m) air guitar (Bm) for a band (F#m)
and I (Bm) I will break (F#m)eardrums (Bm)in the back (F#m)
and I'll (Bm) back you up (Fm) as your front (Bm) man (F#m)

E|7 10
B| 10 (lead gtr. over change)

E|
B Chord
E| 7 7 7 9
B|9 9 7 9 9 9 9 9 (phone ringing section)
G|8 8 8 8 8 8 8 8
D|

Now that sounds.. (B chord with some G# and A notes thrown in)

Chorus
Hold (E) on (A) I'm (E) coming (B) (progression repeats)

Next section (lady....)
Chords: E/B/A/C#m/C#m/B

E|
B|9 9 7 7 5 5 5 9 7 (played with a slide feel)
G| 8 6 4 6 6 4 6 8
D| 6
A|
E|

(E)sentimental (C#m)heartbreaking (B)everythings my fault

E|16 17 14 16 12 14 9 11(note: use hammer-ons)
B| 12
G|
D| (lead before last chorus)
A|
E|

finally, last chorus same as before and make sure you
time the E chords right on the chorus since they act
as more of a passing chord. Will give a proper
songwriting lesson on this one soon since there is so
much interesting material here, so keep an eye out.
