One for the Braves   Good Riddance



Song: One For The Braves
Artist: Good Riddance
Album: The Phenomenon Of Craving
Transcribed by: Foster Richardson


This is such a great song, I couldn’t find
the tab for it anywhere, so I tabbed it
myself, my first tab, I can’t believe Good Riddance
isn’t huge yet, they’re awesome!

Note- The timing for strumming is hard to tab
out, best just listen to the song but I’ll so
my best, don’t rely on it for timing though


Intro/Chorus- play twice (this is also the chorus)

Riff

Second time only playing intro second guitar plays this:

E]-----------------------------------------------[
B]-----------------------------------------------[
G]-----------------------------------------------[
D]-7--7--777--6-66--666--7---6---4----4--444-----[

Verse

       Sometimes it seems so tough...
E]--------------------------------------------------[

G]--------------------------------------------------[
D]--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--6--[

E]--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--4--[


      And I’m....                       Take it all upon....

E]-------------------------------------------------[
B]-------------------------------------------------[
G]-------------------------7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--[
D]--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4–7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--[
A]--4--4--4--4--4--4--4--4–5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--[
E]--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2-------------------------[


Plat that through twice and then:

Pre-Chorus:

E]---------------------[
B]---------------------[
G]---------------------[
D]-7--7--7--7-7--9--6--[
A]---------------------[
E]---------------------[

That leads into the chorus which is the
same as the intro, play chorus twice,
and then verse twice.  As you end the verse
the first time through, a second guitar plays
this quietly in the background.

E]–5---4---2---4---0---[
B]---------------------[
G]---------------------[
D]---------------------[   (Listen to the song to find the exact spot this come in)
A]---------------------[
E]---------------------[


Play pre-chorus again and then the chorus through twice.

When the chorus ends a sort of second chorus?
or something like that the part where it
"think everybody’s talking about you...."
and so on, this is it:

                  Think Everybody’s.......
E]----------------------------------------------------------------[
B]----------------------------------------------------------------[
G]–2--------------------------------------7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--[

E]----------5--4--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--------------------------[

    And conspiring to...
E]-------------------------------------------------[
B]-------------------------------------------------[
G]-------------------------9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--[
D]-7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--9--[
A]-7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--7--[
E]-5--5--5--5--5--5--5--5--------------------------[


Play that twice and then there is a tricky new pre-chorus,
I’m pretty sure I got it wrong though but here is what I have

Pre-Chorus 2:

E]---------------------------------------------]
B]---------------------------------------------]
G]-9--9-9--9--9--9-9--9--9--11-11–13-13-14-14-–]
D]-9-------9--9----------9---------------------]
A]-7-------7-—7----------7---------------------]
E]---------------------------------------------]

After you play that (or something like it) you play
the chorus again except it’s slightly different the
second time through you play this:

       To many problems....             I’ll be...
E]------------------------------------------------[
B]------------------------------------------------[
G]------------------------------------------------[
D]--7--7--7---7-6--6--6---6-4---------------------[
A]--7--7--7---7-6--6--6---6-4---------------------[

E]--5--5--5---5-4--4--4---4-2---------------------[
     beside you when...
E]------------------------------------------------[
B]------------------------------------------------[
G]–7--7--7--7--9---9--9-—9------------------------[
D]–7-–7-–7-—7--9---9--9—-9-–6/7--7--7--6/7--7--7--[
A]–5--5--5--5--7---7--7--7--6/7--7--7--6/7--7--7--[
E]--------------------------4/5--5--5--4/5--5--5--[


When you’ve played that the outro starts, two guitars
play through it.

Outro:

This is repeated over until the music fades, on the
 third time through, 2nd guitar plays a slight variation
 this is it:

B]---------------------------------------[
G]---------------------------------------[
D]-7--7--7--7--6—7-6--7--7--7--7--9—7-6--[
A]---------------------------------------[

E]----------------------------------------[

That’s it the song is finished, it’s a great song.
Please point out corrections, I am sure there are some
 especially on the picking parts, corrections would be
