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

Part 1:
Em           C 	              Em   D    Em
Dear when I touch your face, aw-aw DOM DOM
Em	   C		 Em         D   Em
I can no longer hear, aw-aw        DOM DOM

Em    C    D              Em
The sound of a million hearts
Em         C         Em	  D  Em
Beating together as one  DOM DOM

Em            C              Em    D    Em
And when the night is gone, aw-aw  DOM DOM
Em            C               Em   D    Em
And when the dawn has come, aw-aw  DOM DOM

Em  C   D              Em
I will take the daylight on
Em            C	              Em     D
My cheeks will dry off in the sun  DOM..

Part 2:
Part 2 introduction, guitar part (same as the ba-ba part):
       Em	    D

Part 2 introduction, bass part, tuned to Drop D tuning:

       Em		 D

There is probably a way to play it in Standard tuning.
Beats me, though. Intro ends acapella.

Em                    D, ba-da dum Dum dum Dum
Em                     D, ba-da dum Dum dum Dum

Em                  G                 D                   A
Ba ba ba ba, ba-da ba ba ba ba, ba-da ba ba ba ba, ba-da bum

            Em           Em/B              C
Though my heart once was broke, it's been mended
            Em        Em/B         C
And the sting of the fracture has ended
Em                           C
But still the sound of the hearts that are breaking
       G                        D
And boots that are knocking pervades

Em                      C
Before the day that I first touched your face
         G                              D
Oh, the roar of these things filled my ears
Em                        C
Then I embraced you and (made partly deaf)
         G                           D
I could just hear our breath as we breathed

Em             Em/B        C
Up 'til that day I could hear them
           Em         Em/B          C
And the sound as they broke, it was fearsome
Em                        C
That was until your arms opened up wide
            G	                    D
And the treasure therein was made mine

Em                         C
There is a noise that is taking their place
           G               D
In the hollow of my inner ear
Em                      C
It is far more than the sum of its parts
     G                        D, D7, AAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHH
A white noise as warm as the sun

Part 3:

C               G
Now that I've found you dear
        D         Em
Their plight has lost immediacy
       C            G
And now that I've touched your face
      D    Em
The noise fades from memory

C                 G
I guess we'll forget the sound
    D       Em
I guess, I guess
C                 G
My cheeks will dry off in
     D       Em
The sun, the sun

   C              G
I guess we'll forget the sound
    D       Em
I guess, I guess
