Much Against Everyone's Advice    Soulwax



SONG: MUCH AGAINST EVERYONES ADVICE
ARTIST: SOULWAX
LYRICS & MUSIC: Stephen & David Dewaele
TABBED BY: Luke Veasey (In Part)

I've seen several versions of this song tabbed out on the net and they're all either
Wrong or incomplete so I cannibalized the bits that were right and filled in the
Missing gaps and so I give you the most accurate guide to playing this song (at least
until someone corrects my mistakes).
This song uses drop D tuning (DADGBe). You'll need to listen to the song to get
the timing. I've included the lyrics as a general outline to show you what goes where.

I recommend a light/moderate distortion (gain 4) and a guitar with humbuckers set to
bridge position (eliminating any unwanted extra bass) this even sounds good on a small 
practice amp also if you have a Casio keyboard one of the preset rock rhythms will give 
you a good approximation of the drum machine at the begining of the song.

So get out your guitars and pastel coloured seventies suits and have fun.

Just repeat different sections as necessary I haven't shown you where everything goes 
because it could confuse things but its pretty is easy to see where it all fits.  
Lyrics
******
I seem to have a history
at missing the point
at this stuff
apparently
very absentmindedly
I care
but never enough
for

you

Tiiiiiiiime-to set the record straight
Tiiiiiiiime-to stop communicating
please anticipate

And I'm trying to comprehend the things I write
and I'm living the lie that I cannot satisfy
Much against everyone's advice
I'm still trying, I'm trying, I'm trying, I'm trying

Faith
cheated me of everything
but I laughed until
I stopped
publicity
very, very openly
I sat alone with my thoughts
for
... 
you

Tiiiiiiiime-to set the record straight
Tiiiiiiiime-to stop communicating
please anticipate

And I'm trying to comprehend the things I write
and I'm living the lie that I cannot satisfy
much against everyone's advice
