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.

  Song: Heart It Races


Tabbed by: Kate MacVicar (

Tuning: Regular?
Capo: 1st fret

From what I can tell, this is a very simple song - Just two chords: A and F#m.
I bar them but you can play it the regular way too.
I don't really know how to explain it well and I'm sorry if it confuses you - 
listen to song to get a sense of the rhythm. They play an A and then step down
to a F#m then back to A over and over again.

  "Booom boom boom boom boom boom boom ..."

  A                                              F#m
And we're slow to acknowledge the knots on the laces
heart it races
  A                                            F#m
and we go back to where we moved out to the places
heart it races

i bought it in a can and stirred it with my finger
singing boom-dadadadadadada boom-dadadada
through it out the window
and lately you've been tanned
suspicious for the winter with your
boom-dadadadadadada boom-dadadada
legs like little splinters
and we're slow to acknowledge the knots in the laces
heart it races
and we go back to where we move out to the places
heart it races
i sold it to  a man and threw him out that window
he went boom-dadadadadadada boom-dadadada
made his wife a widow
heart it races alone
everybody go
Boom dadadadadadada boom dadadada

That's pretty much the whole song - please email me with corrections
