EDIT: This is the "All Purpose Tab Request" thread from the other side of the forum, Daidj was nifty enough to move it over here for me and I'm leaving it pretty much as is. For reference it covers: Taster, Campershell Dreams, Lost On Yer Merry Way and This Is How It Always Starts

Feel free to continue this thread but please try only to expand on ideas already discussed here (and try and crack Taster for me) - We have a whole sub-forum to discuss other songs and make tab requests etc.

Cheers,

Hey guys,

I've been having some major issues with taster. I've been playing it for a while to how it goes in my head but then listened to it again recently and realised I'd been miles off.

I've been playing:

(verse)

weird E/Bb thing (67x8xx), A (577655), E (022100)

but of course its E/Bb, A, ?, ?, E. I've looked around but what I've seen in tabs doesn't really work for me. Any hints on what the ? chords are? Also are there any live vids of this that might shed some light on the problem?

Thanks Talkscapers ;)

Sorry, Brassman2000. I have no idea what the chords for "Taster" are, but I thought that A was:
E-0
A-0
D-2
G-2
B-2
E-0

But, I could be wrong. I want to know what the chords are for "Campershell Dreams". You can't find a tab for that anywhere.

yeah 002220 is a but so is 5577655. Its bar E on the 5th fret.

I'll see what I can do about "Campershell Dreams". I know the beginning is E minor then E major and then the verse is something like F G C _ F G C _. I'll have a crack at it properly in a bit.

Awesome thanks!!

Here's my approximation of campershell dreams...


E minor (2 bars) E major (2 bars) "You don't have to be a-"

(verse)
F (2 bars) G C
F (2 bars) G C
F Dm G Em
F Dm G E (major)

(ah-y bit)
F Dm G C
F Dm G Em
F Dm G C
F Dm G E minor (2 bars) E major (2 bars)

(verse)
F (2 bars) G C
F (2 bars) G C
F Dm G Em
F Dm G E (major)

(ah-y bit)
F Dm G C
F Dm G Em
F Dm G C
F Dm G E minor (2 bars) E major (2 bars)

Fine.

Could be a load of nonsense but give it a go and let me know!

Where you're describing in taster sounds like this to me:

Bb/E ,A, B/C# ,E ,Bb/E, A, B/C, E

or something like that.

Yeah I agree there is a B there. Its odd though because in that bit one of the parts goes (notes not chords) G# G G#. hmmm.....

Yeah, I agree. Campershell Dreams sounds right too. Thanks for helping me with that. Does that extra chord I added help? Or is there still a problem? I can help you anytime.:)
Oh, and it sounds like the guitar playing G# ,G ,G# sounds like another guitar with a different distortion.

No problem, happy to help!

I reckon you're right about B and the g/g#s. I think I've still got some work to do trying to separate the guitar parts or even the individual notes in the chords and work back from there. Thanks for you help ColH.
