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.

Tabbed by: Kevin Borkman

Capo on 9th Fret, very specific finger picking pattern where he's picking the higher notes of the chords

Idea of picking pattern:

    G                C               D

I don't know what the real name of this chord is but its B/C here

     G                      C                              D
Spirit of my silence I can hear you, but I'm afraid to be near you
             Am   B/C       C
And I don't know where to begin
             Am   B/C       C
And I don't know where to begin

     G                      C                              D
Somewhere in the desert there's a forest, and an acre before us
             Am   B/C       C
But I don't know where to begin
             Am   B/C       C
But I don't know where to begin
                            D                Am       B/C
Again I lost my strength completely, oh, be near me, tired old
        B/C            C
With the wind in your hair

//Repeat throughout song

Amethyst and flowers on the table, is it real or a fable?
Well, I suppose a friend is a friend
And we all know how this will end

Chimney swift that finds me be my keeper,
Silhouette of the cedar
What is that song you sing for the dead?
What is that song you sing for the dead?

I see the signal searchlight strike me in the window of my room
Well, I got nothing to prove
Well, I got nothing to prove

I forgive you, mother, I can hear you,
And I long to be near you
But every road leads to an end
Yes, every road leads to an end

Your apparition passes through me in the willows and five red hens
You'll never see us again
You'll never see us again
