This is an old revision of the document!
Updated: the below is mostly correct, but I found that two changes will more closely match how John plays this song. First, tune everything down a whole step, so that normal E = D Second, change the "D" chord (actually B- (or with new tuning C#-) minor sus4 add6, I think) as follows: e--0 B--7 G--7 D--9 A--0 E--x This is my favorite Mountain Goats song, and I haven't seen it posted anywhere else. Enjoy. Historiography I don't know if it's the way Darnielle tuned it, or the Panasonic, but this song is played in kind of an off tuning. I just tabbed it in a normal key for convenience. Also, I think the first chord might technically be an inverted Bm, but I'm not sure, so I'm just calling it a D.
