Thank You  Dido

!!!To Guitar Tab Universe and any other guitar site that'll get this tab!!!
This is an updated version of my previous attempt.
That is... something like http://guitartabs.cc/tablocate.php?filename=/d/dido/thank_you.crd
You should delete the previous from your archive and replace it with this one.
IMHO you should also delete the 3 other versions, this is much better :-)
Thank You - Dido
Chords, lyrics & various comments.
"Various comments" 'cos they told me this song is a favorite of beginners... so here
and there I give some useful tips.
An easy song. Believe it or not, second time I listened to it I got the chords.
Played with a capo on the 4th fret.
Play | Em C | 8 times for the intro. C may be a Cmaj7, that is, E to e, X32000 or X32400.
Then | Em C | D G D | is the verse.
| Em C | D G D |
| Em C | D G D |
| Em C | Em/B C |
D/F# is 20023X. If you can't help strumming all the six strings, play 200230, as in
Pearl Jam's "Immortality".
[Em]My tea's gone [C]cold, I'm wondering [D]why I got [G]out of [D/F#]bed at [Em]all
The morning [C]rain cloud's up my [D]window, and [G]I can't [D/F#]see at [Em]all
And even [C]if I could, it'd [D]all be gray, but your [G]picture [D/F#]on my [Em]wall
It re[C]minds me that it's [Em/B]not so bad, it's no[C]t so bad
Play | Em C | twice, and then verse again.
I [Em]drank too m[C]uch last night, got b[D]ills to pay, my h[G]ead just f[D/F#]eels in p[Em]ain
I missed the b[C]us and there'll be [D]hell today, I'm l[G]ate for [D/F#]work ag[Em]ain
And even [C]if I'm there they'll a[D]ll imply that I mi[G]ght not l[D/F#]ast the d[Em]ay
And then you ca[C]ll me and it's [Em/B]not so bad, it's no[C]t so bad
Then turn to | G | C | G | C | G | C | Bm | Am |
Repeat this 5 times (1st as chorus, 2nd instrumental, 3rd verse, 4th and 5th chorus)
Stress the B on A string when passing from G to C (that is, play a G/B x20033).
You can pick the right rythm for this if you look at the next verse (Push the door...).
And [G]I want to th[C]ank you
For giving me the b[G]est day of my l[C]ife
And [G]oh, just to [C]be with you
Is having the [Bm]best day of my l[Am]ife
| G | C | G | C | G | C | Bm | Am |
Try a little soloing here using the G major scale
 
 -|-*-|---|-*-|(*)|---|-*-|-e
 -|-*-|-*-|---|-*-|---|-*-|-B
 -|(*)|---|-*-|---|-*-|---|-G
 -|-*-|---|-*-|---|-*-|---|-D
 -|-*-|---|-*-|-*-|---|-*-|-A
 -|-*-|---|-*-|(*)|---|---|-E

This? How to call it? Should be a fretboard with 6 frets.
If you want to play a G scale, choose the frets so that the
(*) are G's. So, those 6 fret would be 0 to 5, or 12 to 17.
Wanna play a C scale? Use frets from 5 to 10. Of course you
can play scales all over the fretboard, but this is a good
beginning.
Hey: in this song you use a capo so that you actually play
the scale on frets from 4 to 9. A B scale. Not common. Where else?
John Mellencamp's "What If I Came Knocking", I think.
Then:
[G]Push the door, I'm [G/B]home at l[C]ast and I'm soaking t[G/B]hrough and thr[G]ough
Then you handed [G/B]me a t[C]owel and all I [G/B]see is y[G]ou
And even if my house f[G/B]alls d[C]own now, I wouldn't have a c[Bm]lue
Because you're n[Am]ear me...
And [G]I want to th[C]ank you
For giving me the b[G]est day of my l[C]ife
And [G]oh, just to [C]be with you
Is having the [Bm]best day of my l[Am]ife
And [G]I want to th[C]ank you
For giving me the b[G]est day of my l[C]ife
And [G]oh, just to [C]be with you
Is having the [Bm]best day of my l[Am]ife
That's all.
