Last Of The Small Town Playboys

Dirty Pretty Things

Bit of a correction of the other tab for this song really...
The inro and start of the song are these chords:
Dm, A#, A (all barred as shown below)
e|-5----5----5----5----5--x--6----6----6----6----6-----5----5----5----5----5| B|-6----6----6----6----6--x--6----6----6----6----6-----5----5----5----5----5| G|-7----7----7----7----7--x--7----7----7----7----7-----6----6----6----6----6| D|-7----7----7----7----7--x--8----8----8----8----8-----7----7----7----7----7| A|-5----5----5----5----5--x--8----8----8----8----8-----7----7----7----7----7| E|-5----5----5----5----5--x--6----6----6----6----6-----5----5----5----5----5|
then at 0.48 Carl picks/strums G F A# A (x2) like so:
G F A# A G F A e|-3----4----6----5----3----4----6----5---| B|-3----4----6----5----3----4----6----5---| G|-4----2----7----6----4----2----7----6---| D|-5----3----8----7----5----3----8----7---| A|-5----3----8----7----5----3----8----7---|
Carl fingers a couple of strange looking chords for the 'I want you, I need you' bit. something like a D5 and a G5 at teh 10th fret, like this:
'I want you' 'I need you' e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------| B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------| G|-------7------7------7------7------12-----12-----12-----12----------------| D|-------7------7------7------7------12-----12-----12-----12----------------| A|-------5------5------5------5------10-----10-----10-----10----------------| E|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|
^^^ ^^^ Those chords aren't right though but they sound close.
After that you start from the Dm, A#, A again.
The lead parts are major pentatonics-ish like the other guy said but I haven't worked out exactly.
Hope this helps somebody :)
