Miller's Angels  Counting Crows

Date: Tue, 19 Nov 1996 19:58:18 -0800
From: "Michael A. Mazur"
Subject: TAB: Counting Crows, "Millers Angels"
Tab: "Miller's Angels" Counting Crows
Transcribed by Michael A. Mazur (mmazur@wpi.edu)
Guitar 1 is an acoustic, tuned down 1/2 step (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
Guitar 2 is an electric, tuned down 1/2 step
Guitar 3 is an octave mandolin, tuned down 1/2 (Gb Db Ab Eb)
Guitar 4 is a pedal steel
Note: All chords given are SOUNDING chords, not fretted chords
Note: Fills are numbered according to which guitar plays them;
I.E. Fill 2C is the third fill played by guitar 2
Note: Except for the bridge, both guitars 1 & 2 are playing very
intermittently, so their parts have all been labeled as fills.
Occasionally, during the choruses, guitar 1 strums the chords (1/2
step higher), but otherwise, everything is as notated. The mandolin
is only played during the bridge, and is tabbed for a mandolin, not
arranged for guitar. Lastly, there is a pedal steel, guitar 4,
which plays mostly chords and chord tones throughout the song. I
have not tabbed it's part out.
Verse: (Band tacet, chords played by piano, bass)
[Gm]Miller's [Bb]angels in [F]black and white
Welcome everyone in
Children dreaming of wrong and right
Wrapped in grace and in sin

* (w/ Fill 2A)
They come out of the blue
* (w/ Fill 1A)
They come out of the blue sky
Gm * (w/ Fill 2B) C
But you never know where they're gonna go
Eb F Gm * (w/ Fill 2C)
Hey Romeo
