Man'Sized Wreath  R.E.M.

Man-Sized Wreath by REM (off Accelerate 2008)
Transcribed by: Jeff Martin
Tuning: Standard
I think the opening riff can be done 3 ways (it's a G chord), what ever suits you. Here
the three options:
Option 1: (the Thumb frets the low E string and the index finger frets both the high E
the B strings.)

Option 2:

Option 3: (as previously described) (you could fret the low E at the 3rd fret with your
if you like, but you don't have to)

The Verse(s) are played mostly in variations of a G chord where the ring finger hammers
B string at the 3rd fret (the D note) while the E and A strings ring out. I seems
to tab, but I will try. There are variations of this throughout the song... but this
to be the theme.
Verse 1 & 2:
Pt. 1:

Pt 2: (Db7 chord) Note: listen to the song for the rhythm an the hammer on, on the B
It's there for sure.

Play Verse Pt. 1 & 2 again.
 The chord progression is: Am-Dsus2 (sometimes D)-Bm-E-C-G-D

The Tab:
[Am] [Dsus2] [Bm] [E] [C] [G] [D]  

Verse 2: Same as Verse 1.
Pre-Chorus/Chorus 2: Same as 1st (BUT PLAY 2X)
Opening Riff X1
Verse 3: Same as Verses 1 and 2.
Pre chorus/Chorus 3: Same as 1st (BUT PLAY 3X)
Anyways, It's all there. REM make a purdy good record! Athens GA!
