A Celebration Upon Completion

Bright Eyes

Hey, I saw the chords for this song were incomplete, and I wanted to learn to play this
so I did it myself...the chords are 98% correct I'd say, towards the end I had a little
not the best at tabbing songs, but verse/chorus chords are perfect.  Enjoy.   -L. Martin

Bright Eyes - "A Celebration Upon Completion" standard tuning Intro is basis of the song's finger picking style....
C C/B G6 C (2x)
In between the chords C and C/B, and C/B and G6, there is a 3-1-0/1 figure on the B that you should note should you want to play the song like Conor does on the album. I have the time or knowledge on how to tab it, but I can definitely play it myself, sorry I can't help you there. Use your pinky hit the B string, 3rd fret while playing C and chords, andafter a while , it should come along. Good Luck. Great song, by the way. thnx.
C my grandfather's name was moon C/B because his eyes were bright and round G6 C and no amount of time or liquor could dull them
my grandmother's name was joy C/B because it spilled out of her heart G6 C and bathed her precious children in its warmth C/B and there was happiness in life beyond the sorrow and the pain G6 C but how they ever found it i cannot explain F G i guess time has a way of making everything alright Am C it's just there is not enough of it
F G and so we drink and we sing and we celebrate this lie Am C and hope that it will last F G C C C/B G6 C/g -->slide up 2 frets on B morning is here night, has passed string & come back to C/g C C my grandfather was a doctor C/B he cured the sick with his kind hands G6 C and he taught me how to sail and how to find dry land
my grandmother was all sweetness C/B and when she spoke we all heard bells G6 C and they rang in such a way that we were comforted C/B and they held on to each other with all of the strength they had G6 C and they loved with devotion be-yond what i understand F G but i guess fear has a way of making sleep unbearable Am C and the days seem cold and long F but we'll cry and we dance G6 Am G6 C (hit x32013 2 or and we stumble into love in awkward, perfect grace 3 times) Fmaj7 G6 C the moon is gone and the sun has took its place (last line 2x)
