Parachute

Guster


I searched across the web and just could not find a tab accurate enough to actually play the song with. I decided to take it into my own hands and here's my first tab submission
Tune guitar to an open D chord:
D |---down whole step A |---down whole step F#|---down half step D |--- A |--- D |---down whole step
Intro: * = Harmonic
|---12*-----------12*---| |---12*-----------12*---| |---12*--goes to--13----| Just listen to |---12*-----------12*---| find out rhythm. |---12*-----------12*---| |---12*-----------12*---|
Verse:
|---0-----0---------0---------4---------5----------| Open D (all strings) |---0----------------------------------------------| is occaisionally thrown |---0----------------------------------------------| in. Just listen for it |---0--------3-3-3-----3-3-3-----3-3-3-----3-3-3---| and also just listen to |---0--------5-5-5-----5-5-5-----5-5-5-----5-5-5---| find out the strumming |---0----------------------------------------------| pattern.
This continues for a while until "Find myself convincing...."
Verse 2:
|---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---| Each chord is strummed a number of |---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---| times before going to the next one, |---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---| I just didn't feel like writing that
|---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---| many chords. |---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---| |---7---5---7---5---0-----7---5---0---|
Bridge:
|---5---4---2---0---5---4---2---| Again each chord is strummed |---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---| more than just once..... |---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---| |---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---| |---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---| |---5---4---2---0---5---4---2---|
Verse (not so long this time, only goes to "How much strength does it take")
Then:
|---0---0---4---5---| Again, each are strummed multiple times, |---0---0---0---0---| and listen to get rhythm right - sometimes |---0---0---0---0---| the bass notes are strummed and then the |---0---0---0---0---| full chords. |---0---0---0---0---| |---0---0---0---0---|
Verse 2
Bridge
And finally......
|---7---9---------------------------| |---5---9---------------------------| |---0---8---REPEAT THIS TILL END---| Must I say to strum each chord |---0---0---------------------------| alot, about say....24 times??? |-----------------------------------| |-----------------------------------|
Anyway that's about it. Hopefully I provided you with an accurate and playable tab to the best of my first-time-tabbing abilities. This is in my opinion one of the best Guster songs and I hope you enjoy listening to and playing it as much as I have.
