Havent Slept In Years   Matthew Good Band








Song: Haven't Slept In Years
Band: Matthew Good Band
Album: raygun EP
Tabbed by: John Metzler 

I haven't listened to the version from their "Last of The Ghetto Astronauts"
album, so I'm not sure if it's any different, but this is the Raygun version
I've tabbed.

The first part is pretty easy to figure out from just listening to the CD, but
if you can't, here's the easy way to do it...

(Version 1)
e|---------------------|------------------3----------|
B|-3h5--3-0---0-3h5-3--|-3h5--3-0---0-3h5------------|
G|---------------------|---------------------0-------|
D|---------------------|-----------------------------|
A|---------------------|-----------------------------|
E|---------------------|-----------------------------|
Now the it's just the bass playing the notes E - G - C - D

I saw Matt Good play the above part live and he used a different fingering. I
think he played it the Version 2 way so he could get the D string's harmonic on
the 12th fret which is indicated by brackets (12).

(Version 2)
e|-----------------------------|--------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------|--------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------|------------------------(12)----|
D|-12h14--12---------12h14-12--|-12h14--12---------12h14--------|
A|-----------14---14-----------|-----------14---14--------------|
E|-----------------------------|--------------------------------|

Then after a verse or two he plays an extended version of that riff which starts
off with the above part and then goes on with this...

e|---------------------------|--------------|--------------|
B|---------------------------|--------------|--------------|
G|-12-------12-(12)------12--|--------------|--------------|
D|-----------------(12)------|-0---0--0-----|-0---0--0-----|
A|---------------------------|-10--10h12----|-10--10h12----|
E|---------------------------|--------------|--------------|

e|-------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------|
D|-0---0--0--0---0-------0---0---| Then the gutiar cuts off and the bass
A|-10--10h12-12--10------12--10--| slides down the fret board.
E|-------------------------------|


Verse:
Immediately after Matt sings "...you're only human" he comes in with...

  Cadd9  Dsus4 Em?       G
e|-333---333---333---3---3---3--|
B|-333---333---333---3---3---3--|
G|-000---222---000---0---0---0--|
D|-222---000---222---2---0---2--| This repeats until...
A|-333---xxx---222---2---2---3--|
E|-xxx---xxx---000---0---3---x--|

Immediately after he sings "...you're dead" comes...

e|-xxx/xxx--|
B|-333/555--|
G|-000/000--|
D|-222/444--|
A|-333/555--|
E|-xxx/xxx--|

Chorus: (X2)

Em                    G     Cadd9      Cadd9/D?
   Haven't slept in years

Em                G  Cadd9    Cadd9/D?
   Haven't talked to any......bo....dy else...

Bridge:
(individual picking of strings in this part)

Cadd2     Dadd9        Cadd2
....else         Anybody   else

Repeat bridge once, then end with a Dadd9 chord.


Dadd9  Dsus4  Cadd9  Cadd2  Em? D? (what are the last 2 chords called?)
e-0    -3     -3     -0     -3  -x
B-3    -3     -3     -3     -3  -5
G-2    -2     -0     -0     -0  -0
D-0    -0     -2     -2     -2  -4
A-x    -x     -3     -3     -2  -5
E-x    -x     -x     -x     -0  -x
