Daughter  Pearl Jam

Subject: TAB:Pearl Jam's "Daughter" w/ correct tuning
X-Mailer: MUSIC/SP V3.1.1
Okay, I'm not sure if Daughter has been tabbed correctly here, tuning and
all. And I've seen requests for it in the past few weeks. I got the
tuning from an interview with Stone Gossard in a guitar mag and the tab
from a guy I met at the beach. I was jamming on the boardwalk in Ocean
City, MD and this guy came up and asked if I wanted to know "Daughter" and
I said sure, so he showed me...
The tuning is as follows:
Your low E comes up to G.
Your A goes down to the exact same G.
Your D, G, and B strings stay the same.
And your high E goes down to D.
The little intro arpeggio is like this:
 
 D- -----------0-----
 B- ---------0---0---
 G- -------0-------0- (let ring)
 D- -----7-----------
 G- ---5-------------
 G- -0--------------- 

Then the guitar comes in full force and goes on throughout the verses:
 
 D- -0-0-0-0- --0--0--0-0-0-- --0--0--0---0-0-0- -0-0--0--0--0-0-0-
 B- -0-0-0-0- --0--0--0-0-0-- --0--0--0---0-0-0- -0-0--0--0--0-0-0-
 G- -0-0-0-0- --0--0--0-0-0-- --0--0--0---0-0-0- -0-0--0--0--0-0-0-
 D- -0-0-0-0- -/9--7\-0-0-0-- --7-/9--7\--0-0-0- -0-0-/9--7\-0-0-0-
 G- -0-0-0-0- -/7--5\-0-0-0-- --5-/7--5\--0-0-0- -0-0-/7--5\-0-0-0-
 G- -0-0-0-0- --0--0--0-0-0-- --0--0--0---0-0-0- -0-0--0--0--0-0-0-
 D- -0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-
 B- -0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-
 G- -0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---0-
 D- -7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7---0-
 G- -5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---0-
 G- -0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---0- 

The following is how you play the Em7-Em6 part ("She holds the hand
 
 D- --0--0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0--0- That holds her down...")
 B- --0--0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0--0-
 G- --0--0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0--0-
 D- -12-12-12-12-11---12-12-12-12-11-
 G- --9--9--9--9--9----9--9--9--9--9-
 G- --0--0--0--0--0----0--0--0--0--0- 

I'm no lead player ("jus' acoustic, man, jus' acoustic") so look elsewhere
for the solo. Any and all corrections or augmentations welcome...

Alright, I finally figured it out, and I am pretty sure
this is accurate. The trick is to figure out the tuning that Stone
is using. He plays allthe open strings at the very beginning,
although I just messed around till I gotit. The tuning is: (drum
roll, please)
[D]  
[B]  
[G]  
[C]  
[G]  
[E]That's with the lowest string (low E) on the bottom folks.
After that, the chords just kind of fall into place:
[G] [D(6)] [C(6)add9] [C(7)add9]  
 
 I-----0-----I----0----I----0----I----0----I
 I-----0-----I----0----I----1----I---(0)---I
 I-----0-----I----4----I----2----I----4----I
 I-----2-----I----2----I----0----I----0----I
 I-----0-----I----x----I----x----I----x----I
 I-----x-----I----x----I----x----I----x----I 

Don't call me.............Daughter
During the verses (no pun intended), play the above figure once,
and then again, substituting the G chord for the C(7)add9, (i,e,
the last chord). If you listen VERY closely to the intro, that's
what he's playing. The chorus figure is just as written above, with
some variations (maybe) but not much. The end of the chorus goes:
 
 I----0----I----0----I----0--------I----0----I
 I----1----I----0----I----1--------I----0----I
 I----2----I----0----I----2--4---2-I----0----I
 I----0----I----2----I----0--------I----2----I
 I----x----I----0----I----x--------I----0----I
 I----x----I----x----I----x--------I----x----I

left will re mi- i- ind me. Don't call me...
Get it? It should be self-explainatory.
And now here is the bridge. I'm pretty sure that this is
easier played with 2 guitars, one in standard tuning, along with the
bass, but I, being the glutton for punishment that I am, have
figured out a way to play it in this tunig.
[Em7-Em6]  
 
 I----x------I
 I----3-(2)--I middle finger on 3rd, index finger on 2nd.
 I----0------I
 I----4------I pinky
 I----4------I ring finger
 I----0------I 

You can always play the bass line too! :
[E] [F#G]  
 
 I------------2-----I
 I---0------2-------I Bottom 2 strings. 

But you can also just play the 2nd and 3rd strings (B and G).
The outro is basically the same chords, with the same
bassline, and the weirdly tuned guitar plays this trill thingy:
 
 E F I----4-(5)---I C string 

And the normal guitar plays an Em chord up high in the 12
position. Just barre the 12th fret on the top 3 strings. Or you can
play the Em like this.
Normal guitar, top 3 strings:
 
 I----7----I
 I----8----I
 I----9----I 

[ Also suggested: ] 
 
 [ I--------------------------I ]
 [ I--------------------------I ]
 [ I--------------------------I ]
 [ I---4-5----4-5----4-5------I ]
 [ I--------------------------I ]
 [ I-0----- 0------0------0-00I ]

So there you have it. And if some guitar magazine posts
this song this month (and I'm sure they will) I will be pissed. I
also figured out a few other songs on this album as well as
everything on the previous one. And I figured out "SEASONS" for any
alternate tuning buffs out there. Mail me if you want something,
go ahead use me.
