tabs:nova_scotia

Nova Scotia

I listened to this song and enjoyed it, so I thought I'd learn how to play it. Saddened as I was when I discovered that there was no tab for it already, I thought that I'd attempt to make one. This is the best I could come up with. There's not much of a pattern to the song.

Read the following text. It's important because I tabbed this abmormally.

This is the first tab that I've ever made, so it might not be in the proper syntax for tabs. Each “-” is not a beat, and each note is not a one beat either. They could be less or more. I did this in a very strange manner. Sorry. Keep in mind that there are 8 beats in each measure here, no matter what it looks like. The timing of some of it is pretty weird, so I'd suggest listening to the song before playing it to figure that out.

The lyrics are where the “#*” parts are.

1* - Coming in off Nova Scotia… 2* - Yellow sun in the blue sky… 3* - All those cat tails in the wind… 4* - I've got something in my eye… 5* - Listen. Everything I love, I will devour… 6* - And bury the bones down in the snow… 7* - Put me in a beat-up El Camino… 8* - Just let me go. Just let me go…
