Crush'd (previously Awkward thread)

Postby steveo » Tue Jun 23, 2009 9:53 pm

So i'm working my hardest on this and as of right now i now it's in standard tuning and it uses stretch and power chords on the 3rd fret and 5th and power chords on 8

I don't know how it's going to look (this is my first post here), so if it looks funny just copy and paste it into Word.

Tuning: Standard

Verse – do this a bunch of times through, and the strumming just varies throughout the song
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------8-8x------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-9-9x-9-9x-9-9x--8-8-7-7---------------------------------------------------|
A|-7-7x-7-7x-9-9x--4-4-4-4---------------------------------------------------|
E|-9-9x-5-5x-7-7x--2-2-2-2---------------------------------------------------|

Chorus
e|-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------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------8-8-8-8------------------------------------------|
D|-8-8-8-8-7-7-7-7--9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9------------------------------------------|
A|-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4--7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9------------------------------------------|
E|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2--5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7------------------------------------------|


And that's pretty much the whole song. Watch the video to figure out the strumming differences (towards the end he starts to hit the same chords as the verse but just in different strumming patterns).

When he sings “Your other suitors...”
e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9/4-4-4-4-5-5-5-5x------------------------------------------|
And then do some of the above variations of chords. Enjoy

I'm positive, and I know it's a tricky note. Try using your index for the bass note, middle finger for the A string, and your pinky to hit that note that slides. Watch the video and I guarantee that's how he does it...damn you, Max Bemis...

If you're going to do that, the notes on the G string (teehee) would be 22-11...That's not how Max does it, but I guess I can see how that would be a little easier to play. Also I just watched the video of him playing Crush'd for Spin.com and he does some different stuff than what I originally posted, but it's basically all the same chords/tabs I posted, just in different orders. Just an fyi

Yeah the problem normally comes from Max having a bigger hand than some of us so we try to drop it to another string to make it easier.
Self-inflicted or not, I find myself on the farthest star, foreign to everything like I woke up with a German tongue.

the chords go from 2(E)-4(A)-7(D) then 2-4-6, not 2-4-8 to 2-4-7 in the verse
