I have the verse and chorus of Undeveloped Film down, just working on the bridge.
I'm going to REALLY TRY and get it done tonight! I don't have work tomorrow so I'll stay up most of the night if it takes it.

After UF I'll either be working on Tell Tale Signs, starting with the bridge in which I'm going to try and break down each note that make up those weird chords (The roots are G# G A# A C C# D G G# G A# A C C# > final chorus) -- OR -- I'll finish up The Way I Tend to Be (Not a huge amount needed here, just little bits and pieces -- OR -- Plain Sailing Weather (I have pretty much nothig at the minute). Or maybe I'll finish up my Anymore tab, who knows xD

I'm not sure how I'll lay out the UF tab, as it IS all tab, no chord bits.. I've never made an actual tab before, not sure how to put the lyrics too or hwo to arrange it..

Okay, I'm rambling now.... Bye

Right now I'm going to bed, but Undeveloped is ALL tabbed out. I just need to actually lay it out with the lyrics somehow.. :/

This may look HORRIBLE and be impossible to read on the forum, but I'm uploading to Ultimate Guitar immediately so I'll keep you posted. This was so much easier than I thought, but the actually tabbing it out to the lyrics was pretty tough. The verse is rough and inellegant, I deliberately chose not to line up the notes with the lyrics here, because there are simply too many words!! xD. The bridge is long, but hopefully not so long that it's hard to use. I REALLY hope that this is good enough (after all I'm doing all of this for you guys) but if not tell me of any way I can improve it! :D

You may find one or two parts (other than the verse) where the words don't line up exactly with the notes, this has most likely been deliberate to not disturb the flow of the text/for ease of reading.

     Sorting through my things the other day I found an old film camera that I thought I'd thrown away

Hey. I'll start work on The Way I Tend to Be next. While I'm at it, have a look through the pages at the other songs I've tabbed out. Have fun :)

Working on Tell Tale Signs right now. I have the bridge totally done -- much easier than I thought it'd be -- now I'm just trying to figure out the exact picking pattern and I'm golden :D

I've got the first two chords of the intro/verse pattern down, just moving on to the 'F'. Aftere that only the chorus and then arranging into a chord/tab sheet for you lovely people :)

I'll certainly give it a look, if memory serves (I've almost exclusively been listening to TDH songs for the past 4 months or so, as you can probably tell from all these tabs xD) it doesn't sound too hard.

Just out of interest - if you know - do these forums have a private message feature?

I've got the basic hang of it, I think, just seeing if there's any more insight. And I really don't know if there is sorry man. I'm incredibly helpful today..

Haha, don't worry, man ;)

Yeah, I'm going to try and finish TTS tonight (just laying up the basic chord/tab sheet now (got chorus to do and that's pretty much it). Then I'll be tabbing up The Way I Tend to Be (pretty much all already worked out. Then I'll give it a look :)

The preliminary Tell Tale Signs. If I play the intro to that song any more tonight I think I'll just kill myself. I was going to wait until I'd figured out the chorus picking pattern, but right now I'm tired and can't discern the notes properly. As far as I can tell Frank plays the chorus strumming the chords live, so for a little while (hopefully only a few days) the chorus will remain as just the chords.

Code: Select all

You can't just keep waltzing out of my life
                      Am riff 2
Leaving clothes on my bedrom floor

                    Am riff 1
Like nothing really matters

That I made when I was a kid 
                                C        F            G
With a disassembled disposable razor I stole from my Dad
                                                   C                    F          G
Back when I thought that suffering was something profound that weighed down wise heads

Something normal people dread

With all the things that I've done and the places I've been
         Am riff 2
I'd be a machine if I had stayed the same

                           Am riff 1
You're still back where we started
                       Em riff
You haven't changed at all
             F riff                      G riff
Yeah, you're still trying to live like a kid
               Am riff 2          G
Like you could always have it all


-CHORUS-
                                                C
You know, you kind of remind me of scars on my arm
        F              G
That I hid as best I could
                                                   C          F             G
That I covered with ink, but in the right kind of light they still bleed through
                                                       C         F               G
Showing that there are some things that I just cannot change no matter what I do
                 Dm
These tell-tale signs of being used
        F                   Am riff 2
Being trapped inside of you

-BRIDGE-
G#
                     G(2)    A#
You're a beautiful butterfly
                 Dmaj7      
Burned with a branding iron
          Cadd9            Dsus2/C#
Onto my outsides, into my insides
     Dm(2)    G(2) G#
As a simple sign
                    G(2)   A#
To show off your ownership
                Dmaj7
Burnt into my naked skin
           Cadd9           Dsus2/C#
On to my outsides, into my insides

               Dm     G
It's not even love anymore
              C            F
It's just a stain upon my soul
            Dm                  G
It's on my skin and it's on my breath
          C                F
And I'm ashamed to get undressed
              Dm                    G
In front of strangers in case they see
               C                   F            D
The tell tale signs that you have left all over me
             G
God damn it, Amy

-OUTRO-
                                        C
You'll always remind me of scars on my arm
        F               G
That I know will never fade
                                                C        F    G
But it's not like it's something I think about each and every day
                                               C                 F           G
I just occasionally find myself scratching at them as if they'd ever go away
                 Dm
These tell-tale signs are here to stay
            F
And in the end, you know, that's okay
                  Dm
Because you will always be a part
       F                      G                   Am
Of my patched up, patchwork, taped up, tape deck heart

With the lateness I've only just realised how sloppy this tab is... :/
I'll clean it up tomorrow and hopefully work out the chorus picking pattern :)
