Third Eye Blind

Third Eye Blind Narcolepsy Tabbed by: Kevin Brosky (3EBdude)
This is the correct way to play Narcolepsy. I was disappointed that nobody had this on here so this is my tab.
First off, the tuning is: F# A D F# A E (sidenote: this is also the tuning for Forget Myself)
It also should be known that this is played in all one part. So it goes like this for the intro/verse:
|-0---12-0--0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0---17-0--12--7-7-7-7-7-| |-0---0--12-0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0---0--17-0---7-7-7-7-7-| |-0---0--0--0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0---0--0--0---7-7-7-7-7-| |-0-0-------0--7-7-7-7-7-|-0-0-----------7-7-7-7-7-| |-0-0--------------------|-0-0---------------------| |-0-0--------------------|-0-0---------------------|
That gets repeated several times. Let the chords ring and you should be able to figure out the timing from listening to the recording.
Then comes this part:
|-0-0-0-2-2-0-0-0-0-0-| |-4-4-4-2-2-0-0-2-0-0-| |-3-3-3-2-2-3-3-3-3-3-| |-2-2-2-2-2-4-4-4-4-4-| |---------------------| |---------------------|
"I try to keep awake..."
|-------------------------------------------------| |-------------------------------------------------| |-------------------------------------------------| |-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-| |-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6-6/9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-| |-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5/8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-| "I can feel this narcolepsy slide into another nightmare..."
Then the distortion kicks in and you strum those beginning chords
|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-| |-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-| |-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-| |-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-| |-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-----------------| |---------------------------------|
That's the basis of the whole song. There is a lot that repeats. The only thing left I think would be the solo:
(Played only on the high E string, it goes pretty fast)
Ok, that should be it for this song. If I left out some little bits and pieces, it shouldn't be hard to figure them out using what I have hear. Just listen to the recording of it to get the timing and strum patterns down. Enjoy!
