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.

Not sure entirely about the D7/B chord and the Am7 in the chorus when playing against the record,
but sounds fine when I play it solo acoustic...

D7/B - 2x0212
Am7  - x02010

C                Bb
/ I got woken up / Late last night
Am                   G
/ By a friend of his...
C                             Bb
/ Said he left the lion's lair / With a bloody head
Am                              G
/ And he could hardly walk, and disappeared

Bm                    C
/ My husband's asleep / My kids are in bed
/ I leave a note, and start driving...

       C                  Am7

Colfax Avenue /

/ I check all the alleys / and the liquor stores
/ And the bars they still / let him in to
/ He wasn't like this before he left / now he comes back and his mind's a wreck
/ And the army / what do they do?

/ My husband's worn out / My kids are scared
/ But he's my little brother, and he's out there...

Somewhere (up and down)
Colfax Avenue /
Up and down (up and down)
Colfax Avenue
