Artist: Ben Harper
Song: Serve Your Soul


Ben Harper -Serve Your Soul from Both Sides of the Gun
this is just a few parts i know

tuning: drop d (low e string tuned down one whole step)

intro
e-----------------------|
b-----------------------|
g-----------------------|
d--5-3------5-3---------|
a------5---------5------|
d--------(0)--------(0)-|


the chords for the verse are like this:
e--0-0-0---x--0-0-0--x-|
b--5-3-1---x--5-3-1--x-|
g--5-4-2---x--5-4-2--x-|
d----------x---------x-|
a----------x---------x-|
d----------x---------x-|

"i look into the mirror/and i see that life has taken it's toll"
e-------------------------------|
b-------------------------------|
g-------------------------------|    (remember to get into drop d or it won't
d-------------------------------|      sound sweet)
a-------------------------------|
d--5/7--7-7-33-3--3/5--5-5-00-0-|

after that it goes:
e----------------------------------------------------------|
b------------------------------3^----------------------3^--|
g----------------------------------------------------------|
d----------------------------------------------------------|
a----------------------------------------------------------|
d-5/6/7-10--5/6/7-10--3/5-3/0-----5/6/7-10--3/5-3/0--------|

then after he does that after the 2nd verse, i believe, there's this breakdown and solo part

he uses this as a hard-hitting bridge to the breakdown
e-----------------------------------------------------------|
b-----------------------------------------------------------|
g--5-5--5--5-5----------------5-5--5--5-5-------------------|
d--5-5--5--5-5---------3-0----5-5--5--5-5-------------------|
a--3-3--3--3-3---0-3-0--------3-3--3--3-3----0-3-0----------|
d---------------------------------------------------3--0----|

e------------------------------------------------------|
b------------------------------------------------------|
g--5-5--5--5-5----------3-0---5-5--5--5-5--------------|
d--5-5--5--5-5---0-3-0--------5-5--5--5-5--------------|  *silence*
a--3-3--3--3-3----------------3-3--3--3-3---0-3-0------|
d--------------------------------------------------3---|

then a lone guitar comes out, very quietly....
e--------------------------------------------------------|
b--------------------------------------------------------|
g--------------------------------------------------------|
d--------------------------------------------------------|
a--5--5--5-5-5-5-5---10--10-10/12-10---10/12-10---repeat-|
d--------------------------------------------------------|


that riff can be done two ways, either as above, or as:
e-------------------------------------------------|
b---3-----3--3-3-3----------------------------3---|
g--0/2----2--2-2-2-----4--4--4--4/5-4--4/5----0/2-|
d---0-----0--0-0-0-----5--5--5---5--5---5-----0---|
a-------------------------------------------------|
d-------------------------------------------------|

then guitar 2 starts out the solo,still quiet:
e------------------------------------------------------|
b------------------------------------------------------|
g---------10-------------10-------------10/12-10-------|
d---10/12----12----10/12----12----10/12----------12----|
a------------------------------------------------------|
d------------------------------------------------------|

e--------------------------------------------------|
b--------------------10----------------------------|
g---------10/12-10-------12--10--10----------------|
d---10/12----------------------------12--10--12----|
a--------------------------------------------------|
d--------------------------------------------------|



now this is fun to play!
e-----------11-----------|
b------13^^-----13--11---|   repeat that riff a couple times
g------------------------|
d------------------------|
a------------------------|
d------------------------|

then:
e------------------------------------------------------|
b------------------------------------------------------|
g--0-2--5--9----0-3-7-7/5--2-----0-2--5--9--9/12/14----|that 12/14 part i
d------------------------------------------------------|just made up, do it
a------------------------------------------------------|if you want to
d------------------------------------------------------|
you can do that riff on any of the strings, try it out.

then ben goes all crazy with the slide, good luck trying to figure that one out.  so for now, that's it!
