As you know, the new album comes out soon, so I'm going through all the tabs you guys posted and getting them ready for "official release" (september 9th). If you tabbed any of these songs, let me know if you agree with any changes I've made (I've bolded major changes). And if you are just a guy who didn't tab these, you too can correct mistakes.

I didn't make any chord changes on this song.


Everything Is New
Tabbed by forum member: speedy m (Mike Velonas - mvelonas@hotmail.com)

Intro
e---0---
b---0---
g-------
d---2---  
a---2---
e-------
   Em*    


I donít know what to call this chord. The only thing Iím sure of is 
that proper musical theory does not include the asterisk. I think 
this chord is what is played, as a full Em chord does not sound right, 
and I believe the base is playing a B, though I could be wrong. 


Em*  C   G   C   Am   G   C   Em*


[Chorus]

Em*           C        G
Everything is new 

                C      
When the sky is blue

Am                     G   C
 You got everything to do


Em*  C   G   C   Am   G   C   

Em (regular Em here) G  Am  C


[Verse]

Em                          G
Jessie quit the army and he started a band
 
        Am                     Em    
he used play that club down at hermosaís strand

                G                  Am
I think theyíre changing the name again


Em                        G
Down in Holland where the windows are big
              Am
The paint the buildings bright
           Em                       G         Am
Cause they figure the rainís coming who knows when 


[Chorus]

Em*           C        G
Everything is new 

                C      
When the sky is blue

Am                     G   C
 You got everything to do


Em  C   G   C   Am   G   C

Em  G   Am   C


[Chorus] - x2

Em*           C        G
Everything is new 

                C      
When the sky is blue

Am                     G   C
 You got everything to do


[Verse]

[Chorus] - x2

[Guitar solo]

Em  G  Am  C  (2x)


[Chorus] - x2

End on: Em

____________________________________________________________________

Iím not sure about the whole Em* thing. I think playing that during 
the verse sounds better than a standard Em, the low ďeĒ just doesnít 
sound right. Perhaps someone out there with a clue can help me out. 
Beautiful song.

SOLO SYMBOLS:
/ = slide
^ = bend
r = release bend


*G# 
in the intro it sounds like Frank plays a normal G# barre chord, while the
lead guitar mixes in that dissonant E note. In the chorus, rhythm guitar 
kind of restrains from playing that chord fully, but it may hit some note
that wouldn't make it a normal G#. If you want you can play what I listed
below, but normal G# sounds just fine. ~proverbialcereal

E-----
B--5--  What I do is play a normal G# for 3 beats, then switch to the
G--5--  dissonant chord before going back to A. 
D--6--
A--6--
E-----

E -> F#  D                     B                             A

D  A         D               B                 D
      Now  I lay here cut in half because I am not the one you needed


E -> F# D* A                                  E
            So pretty and so tender thatís a rabbits way

E -> F#  B                          D  
           A little pessimistic but thatís okay

E -> F#  D                     B                             A
           A pig or goat well    they gonna let you be mistreated

D  A       D             B          D
      So I geuss on that note  I am not the one you needed


(single notes in small letters)

a g# g F#
          well they call me the snake

D  A         D               B                 D
      Now  I lay here cut in half because I am not the one you needed


E -> F# D*  A                                  E

      So I geuss on that note  I am not the one you needed


finish on  E -> F#  D*  A


*I'm pretty sure on this part there is a D chord hit just before going
 to A. It's a quickee. -derek

I added the into and picky part, and then corrected 2 chords in chorus. Not positive about those fills in the intro, but they sound decent

Manitoba
Tabbed by: Dave Noisy (www.frankblack.net/about/davenoisy.asp)
Intro + picky part: ProverbialCereal

[Note, lyrics are from the liner, slightly different in the recording.]

[G] [Em7] x2

[G]Up in [Em7]Manitoba
The [C]sky was very [Am]blue
The [C]people were a [Am]few
[G]And nights were never [Em7]colder

Once I heard a wailing sound
The sky had turned to red
So I got up from my bed
And I wandered far from town

	[PRECHORUS]

	[Bm] [D]

	[CHORUS]

	[G]I have [C]seen the face of God
	And I was not [D]afraid
	[G]I have [C]seen the [Em]face of [C]God
	And [C]I have [D]dearly [G]paid   [Em7]

[VERSE]

The darkness came right down on me
There were no more lights to follow
So I slept inside the hollow
Of a dead and fallen tree

Did you know three days I tried
To wake myself?  But, no
My flesh had turned to snow
And i thought that I had died

        [PRECHORUS]
	[CHORUS]
        
        [SOLO] - over chorus chords

And though I had it rough
They got me home in time
They gave me homemade wine
But it was not enough

The cold had made me dumb
And I was sent away
These walls are here today
For fifty years and some

	[CHORUS] x2

 [G] [Em]   [G] [Em]   [G] [Em]   [G]


[OUTRO] - over chorus x2 (play Bm-D after first time)

End on G
    

Yay!  Dave Noisy's first tab contribution!

You've done a fine job with mine, Derek. I was working off the radio show version (no solo) so I thank you for filling that in.

Goodbye Lorraine
Tabbed by: NimrodsSon and ProverbialCereal


[Intro] - 8 measures

C-Dm-G7-C  (x2)


[Verse]

  C               Dm
I met her in the mountains

         G7                C
Though I lived down by the sea

                      Dm
But now it seem these mountains

         G7               C
are just way too high for me


[Chorus]

             Dm
 Goodbye Lorraine

G7           C    C/B         
 Goodbye Lorraine

Am        Dm   G7  C
 Let me explain


[Verse 2] same chords: C - Dm - G7 - C x2

 She said if we'll be withces
 Then there must be nakedness
 I said you have no hear until
 that aching fills your chest


[Chorus]
             Dm
 Goodbye Lorraine
G7           C    C/B

 But I can't explain it anymore

[Solo]  

C - Dm - G7 - C x2

[Verse 3]

 We held hands in the temple
 But we had no wedding day
 Now she sends me perfumed letters
 And I throw them all away

[Chorus]
             Dm
 Goodbye Lorraine
G7           C    C/B         
 Goodbye Lorraine
Am        Dm   G7  C
 Let me explain

 And friend showed me a picture
 from the 1970's
 Now I'm wondering where you are tonight
 And I'm singing woe is me

[CHORUS]

Monsieurs at nine,    that is my promise, have some wine

Ya I thought Iíd gravitate 

                        E          B
to the hills of central France


[Verse 2]
And so I left the world below
And into the rocks I climbed
Now I'm living the in the cold
But I'm looking for the sign


[Chorus]

E           F#  Aadd9     E       B
 That's the sign   of her love behavior

E           F#  Aadd9               E   B
 That's the sign   that I'm looking for


[Verse 3+4]
And i've seen you in the movies
And I've seen you at the store
And if I stare a little more
Well, that's because you move me

I can see it in your eyes
I can hear it when you talk
Darling when I see you walk
You seem so very nice


     [CHORUS] x2


[Solo]

E F# A E B (2x)


[Verse 5+6]
It sure is cold here in the summer
I haven't got a number
But the sky is very bright
and the sun is very clear

I can smell it in the wind
'Cause I guess that it's the time
And I saw the way you grinned
You were giving me the sign


     [CHORUS] x2

     [BRIDGE] x1


[Ending] x2
E                  A         
 Please, donít run away

Other than these two chords play an open E chord, and the rest 
use standard barre chords

I think it sounds better Em, but for that picking part I think it's technically an Em7 because of that D note on the B string. If you are just gonna strum Em probably sounds better.

On Massif when he plays it acoustic he plays the Monseurs at 9 part like

E    Em      C        G#   G#m   A                  E
Monsieurs at nine,    that is my promise, have some wine


You can't really hear it on the album because there's so much going on, but if you listen to it acoustic, it's very obvious

Blame Speedy m, he typed up those lyrics. Or maybe he has a thing for you and did it on purpose.

Good catch. I can hear the G#-G#m on the album version, but it's not as evident on the E-Em (even though it probably is there, just hidden)
