Tab Mapper

The tab mapper is a handy little tool that will render a guitar tab file with graphic chord diagrams displayed alongside. This comes in handy for people who just don't have every single chord shape memorized. Just plug in the web site address of a valid .tab or .crd file and hit "Go". In general, the tab mapper does a better job with printer friendly URLs. If there is more than one way to play a chord, the tab mapper will choose the most common shape. To see other fingerings, click on the chord diagram and you will be taken to the chord calculator.

A chord {x 0 2 2 2 0} chord
F#m chord {2 4 4 2 2 2} chord
D chord {x x 0 2 3 2} chord
E chord {0 2 2 1 0 0} chord
Ddim chord {x x 0 1 3 1} chord

[verse]
A                        D
When I was just a little boy
                       A
I threw away all of my action toys
                  D            A       D
When I became obsessed with Operation

A                                 D
With hearts and minds and certain glands
                          A
You gotta learn to keep a steady hand
                  D           A   (A7)   D
And thus began my morbid fascination

E                                        F#m
Tore the spines from out of all of these self-help books
E                               F#m
Made myself a gun that not only shoots but looks
   D                       E
So real, it shoots through steel
                  A        D    A   (A7)  D
With rays of dark matter
             A        D    A  (A7)  D
rays of dark matter

A                              D
Do you wonder where the self resides
                         A
Is it in your head or between your sides
                            D
And who will be the one who will decide
           A       D
Its true location

A                                           D
And does the thought of bile that's red and black
                            A
The thought of tongues that taste you back
                D                     A       D
Fill you with a nauseouseous sort of elation

E                                          F#m
A noose is loosed around our necks made of DNA
          E                                            F#m
And every day it's growing tighter no matter what they do or say
            D                               
And you can shoot right through it with rays of dark matter
       E
Just before they kick out,
                  A        D
they kick out the ladder
                  A        D
With rays of dark matter
                  A   (A7) D    A    D
With rays of dark matter
               A                D    A    D   A   D    A   D
Like something catching fire

[whistle]

A                              D
Do you wonder where the self resides
                         A
Is it in your head or between your sides
                            D
And who will be the one who will decide
           A
Its true location
