That Is Why

Postby Xivexeox » Sat Dec 27, 2008 12:56 pm

Umm, zyea... Why isn't there a "That Is Why" tab? Thats one of my favirote songs and if you can get "Wow I Can Get Sexual Too," I think you can get "That Is Why" :)

and there you go!

Code: Select all

CD is in E Standard
Video example is in Eb
This is meant to be based more on the live version

Today I sat...  cancer.. thinking ...     bar
|--3------------3-2-1--3------------------3--3--3--------------|
|--5------------3-2-1--3------------------5--6--5--------------|
|--5------------4-3-2--4------------------5--5--5--------------|
|--5------------5-4-3--5------------------5--5--5--------------|
|--3------------5-4-3--5------------------3--3--3--------------|
|---------------3-2-1--3---------------------------------------|
                ^ (on CD is the run down here, acoustic he doesn't do it)

How was I...  know...   crush..  explode   -came..   star
|--1----------3----------------------------1---1-----3---3-3------|
|--1----------3-----------------5----------1---1-----3---3-3------|
|--2----------4---------4-------5----------2---1-----4---5-4------|
|--3----------5---------5-------5----------3---3-----5---5-5------|
|--3----------5---------5------------------3---3-----5---5-5------|
|--1----------3---------4-------5----------1---1-----3---3-3------|


Next verse is similar to the Cancer verse. He adds more parts
with the suspended chord back to the normal one (see sections under
bar and star for examples.)

horrible you're...   that/you/world
|--------------------1----3----3------------------------------|
|--5--5-5--5-5--5----1----3----5------------------------------|
|--5--5-5--5-5--5----2----4----5------------------------------|
|--5--5-5--5---(4)---3----5----5------------------------------|
|--3--3-4--4-5--5----3----5----5------------------------------|
|--------------------1----3----3------------------------------|
 Can add the 4 for more flavor, can't tell if it's there

want you.. (this part may be alittle off)
|--0---0---1---0---|--0--0--1--0---------------------------------|
|--1---1---1---1---|--1--1--1--1---------------------------------|
|--2---0---2---0---|--2--0--2--2---------------------------------|
|--2---2---3---2---|--2--2--3--2---------------------------------|
|--0---3---3---3---|--0--3--3--0---------------------------------|
|------3---1---3---|-----3--1------------------------------------|
          the last time he does

then it goes to:
            
|--------------------1----3-----------------------------------|
|--5--5-5--5-5--5----1----3---------5-------------------------|
|--5--5-5--5-5--5----2----4----4----5-------------------------|
|--5--5-5--5---(4)---3----5----5----5-------------------------|
|--3--3-4--4-5--5----3----5----5------------------------------|
|--------------------1----3----4----5-------------------------|

that is why...      girl
|---1----3-----------------------1---2-------|
|---1----3-----------------------1---2-------|
|---2----4---------5--5--5--4----2---2-------|
|---3----5---------5--5--5--5----3---4-------|
|---3----5---------3--2-----5----3---4-------|
|---1----3---------------5--3----1---2-------|

BBROKKKEEEN STAAARS
the last part live he just picks these next two chords. i'll tab out the way he normally does it but he gets excited and I think he messes up but maybe thats how he meant it. so something along these lines will be fine:
|-------|---------------------------------|
|-------|---------------------------------|
|--4----|----------4--------------4-------|
|--5----|----5---5---5--5---5---5---5---5-|
|--3----|--3---3------3---3---3-------3---|
|-------|---------------------------------|

|------|---------------------------------|
|------|---------------------------------|
|---4--|----------4--------------4-------|
|---5--|----5---5---5--5---5---5---5---5-|
|------|---------------------------------|
|---5--|--5---5------5---5---5-------5---|

on the CD it's slightly different though
Self-inflicted or not, I find myself on the farthest star, foreign to everything like I woke up with a German tongue.

I haven't watched the video in a long time, but theory wise the

Code: Select all

e|--
B|--
G|-4-
D|-5-
A|-5-
E|-4-


chord(a Abdim) would be

Code: Select all

e|--
B|--
G|-4-
D|-6-
A|-5-
E|-4-


Don't know if you know it. Don't know if that's how he plays it or not. Don't mean to be a prick. I know it's a small change.

I know that, but max doesn't play that chord. After numerous watchings and listening I've never heard that much diminishedness in the chord.
