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
B chord {x 2 4 4 4 2} chord
C chord {x 3 2 0 1 0} chord
D chord {x x 0 2 3 2} chord
E chord {0 2 2 1 0 0} chord
G chord {3 2 0 0 0 3} chord

Verse:

Am              C
Come on skinny love just last the year
Am             C
Pour a little salt we were never here
        Am           C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
               D                                Am   C
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer

Am                 C
I tell my love to wreck it all
Am               C
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
        Am           C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
             D                   Am
Right in the moment this order's tall

Chorus:

  C
I told you to be patient
  C/B            Am
I told you to be fine
  C
I told you to be balanced

  C/B            Am
I told you to be kind
       C
In the morning I'll be with you
            C/B             Am
But it will be a different "kind"

        C
I'll be holding all the tickets

              C/B            Am
And you'll be owning all the fines

Verse:

Am               C
Come on skinny love what happened here
Am             C
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
        Am           C
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
               D                          Am
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split

C

Chorus:

  C
I told you to be patient
  C/B            Am
I told you to be fine
  C
I told you to be balanced

  C/B            Am
I told you to be kind
    C
Now all your love is wasted?

     C/B              Am
Then who the hell was I?
        C
Now I'm breaking at the britches
           C/B             Am
And at the end of all your lines

Bridge:

C
Who will love you?

C/B      Am
Who will fight?

C        C/B      Am
Who will fall far behind?

Outro:
