Palm Reader  Third Eye Blind

tabbed by: Kevin Brosky (3EBdude)
I was doing some figuring out with this one because I wanted to learn it so badly
and nobody has anything for it. I just recently saw Third Eye Blind and was
pretty close to them. I watched Tony and it helped me figure some things out for
the song when I got home. So this is what I have for it.
The tuning is EADGBD and that is for sure because Tony Fredianelli said so on his
site. It's almost standard except the high E gets tuned down a whole step
(although you could probably play it in standard and it wouldn't sound too much different).
Intro:
 
 |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 |--------------------------------------------------------------------------
 |--------------------------------------------------------(5)---------------
 |----(5)-----(5)-----------(5)-----(5)---(5)---------------------(5)---(5)-
 |--------------------(5)-------------------(5)-----------------------------
 |--x-----5-5-----5-5-----5-----5-5-----5-------5-5--3-3------3-3-----3-----
 -----------------------| repeat
 -----------------------|
 ---------(7)-----------|
 -----------------(7)---|
 --3/5-5------5-5-----5-|
 -----------------------|

The hardest thing to get the hang of is that you almost have to be playing two
parts at once, combined into one part. The way I do it is my first finger plays
all the single notes and my second and third fingers do all the harmonics. That
pattern continues for the verses.
Interlude:
 
 |--------------------------------------------|
 |--------5-7b---3-5-7---------5-7b---3-5-7---|
 |--6b-6b------4-------0-6b-6b------4---------|
 |--------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------|
 |--------------------------------------------|

These bends are half bends
Chorus:
[A] [G] [D]  
 
 |------0-0-----------0-0------------0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-| repeat
 |------3-2-----------3-2------------3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3-|
 |--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--0-0-0-0-0-0--2-2-2-2-2-|
 |--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--0-0-0-0-0-0--0-0-0-0-0-|
 |--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--2-2-2-2-2-2------------|
 |-------------------------------3-3-3-3-3-3------------|

Then there is that distorted bridge thing and that goes like this:
 
 |------0-0------------------0-0----------------------| repeat
 |------x-x------------------x-x----------------------|
 |------2-2-0-2--0-0-0--4-4--2-2-0-2--0-0-0--7-7-4-4--|
 |------2-2-0-2--0-2-0--4-4--2-2-0-2--0-2-0--7-7-4-4--|
 |-12/--0-0-0-0--0-2-0--2-2--0-0-0-0--0-2-0--5-5-2-2--|
 |----------------------------------------------------|

So that is the basis of the song from what I have gathered. There are maybe some
other little fills at certain parts but this is the main gist of it all. It should
be pretty accurate. I hope this helps and maybe some other people will have more
on this song eventually. Enjoy!
