Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics

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*--goes to--13----| Just listen to
|---12*-----------12*---| find out rhythm.


|---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.


|---5---4---2---0---5---4---2---| Again each chord is strummed
|---0---0---0---0---0---0---0---| more than just once.....

Verse (not so long this time, only goes to "How much strength does it take")


|---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.

Verse 2


And finally......

|---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.
