I've just written up most of Practical Anarchist. Really simple, but fun to play/sing, there's just a few lyrics that I can't make out.

Actually, I'll post any songs I tab out here. I'll get around to them all eventually, but I'll try figuring out Time Machine soon for you :)

Her'es what I've got so far:

http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/f/frank ... st_crd.htm


Code: Select all

Frank Turner - Practical Anarchist

-KEY-

~ = ring out
. = staccato
xxx = muted strumming

-CHORDS-

    EADGBe
Am  x02210
C   332010
Em  022000
F   x33211

-VERSE-

    C        F        C
The state is not your friend
    C        F        C
The state is not your friend
      Am       Em         F           C
It'll work you blind then relase your mind
    G                        C
The state is not your friend

-VERSE-

    C          F         C
The state will hold your hand
    C          F         C
The state will hold your hand
         Am        Em           F         C
When you cross the road, but it won't let go
         G                    C
When you reach the other side

-VERSE-

       C        F        C
If you take the tyrant's coin
       C        F        C
If you take the tyrant's coin
       Am      Em       F         C
You've lost control and sold your soul
    G                        C
But that's the fucking point

-SOLO-

C F C
C F C

But people give me hope
     C      F       C

They dance and sing and do amazing things
G                   C
People give me hope

-VERSE-

       C         F     C
We can help each other out
       C         F     C
We can help each other out
        Am       Em           F     C
With decent songs and not because
    G                       C
The state said it's allowed

-VERSE-

    C      F      C
............. our love
    C      F      C
............. our love
     Am       Em       F      C
...................... violently
G                       C
With some velvet gloves

So fight against the power

Cause human beings run wild and free
      G                   C.C~  C
Let's make the future ours

I'll certainly take a look at Good and Gone. I'm gonna try and work out the bridges to Tell-tale Signs and Recovery tonight. Gonna work on tabbing Undeveloped at one point, too.

I have been quite busy with work, but right now I'm working on Good and Gone - and making progress, just about to start work on the bridge. Anymore is next.

Sorry it's taken ages, I was working on scribing all of the new lyrics first: http://frank-turner.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5894.

I've got Recovery almost fully done, except for an uplifting chord progression at the end of the bridge, working on it, though.

With the way the forum is laid out, the chords are not aligned, but it's not too hard to listen and figure out when to play them. I'm confident that this is almost all correct. However, if anyone has any issues post them here and I'll see if I can resolve them :)

http://tabs.ultimate-guitar.com/f/frank ... ry_crd.htm

Frank Turner - Recovery

-VERSE-

A~                       E7sus4~
Blacking in and out in a strange flat in East London
 A/C#~                  Dsus2~
Somebody I don't really know just gave me something
   A~                         E7sus4~                        A/C#~   Dsus2~
To help settle me down and to stop me from always thinking about you

        A~                               E7sus4~
And you know you're life is heading in a questionable direction
            A/C#~                              Dsus2~
When you're up for days with strangers and you can't remember anything
  A~                                E7sus4~                               A/C#~ D  E
Except the way you sounded when you told me you didn't know what I should do

-CHORUS-

             E7                Dsus2        E
Well, it's a long road up to recovery from here
  E7                   Dsus2>A/D>Asus2/D  E
A long way back to the light
  E7                Dsus2        E
A long road up to recovery from here
  E7                    D
A long way to making it right

-VERSE-

              A                                E7sus4
And I've been waking in the  morning just like every other day
              A/C#                          Dsus2
And just like every boring blues song I get swallowed by the pain
     A                             E7sus4                       A/C#  Dsus2
So I fumble for your figure in the darkness just to make it go away

               A                            E7sus4
But you're not lying there any longer and I know that that's my fault
             A/C#                                Dsus2
So I've been pounding on the floor and I've been crawling up the walls
              A                              E7sus4          A/C#                   D              E
And I've been dipping in my darkness for serotonin boosters, cider and some kind of smelling salts

-CHORUS-

             E7                Dsus2        E
Well, it's a long road up to recovery from here
  E7                   Dsus2>A/D>Asus2/D  E
A long way back to the light
  E7                Dsus2        E
A long road up to recovery from here
  E7                    D
A long way to making it right

-BRIDGE-

          A6add9~                           Dsus2~              A    E/G#
So on the first night we met, you said well darling lets make a deal
      A6add9~                       Dsus2~                   A  Asus4>A>Asus2  E/G#
If anybody ever asks us, let's just tell them that we met in jail

               A6add9                            Dsus2
And that's the story that I'm sticking to like a stony faced accomplice
      A                                      E/G#
But tonight I need to hear some truth if I'm ever getting through this
          A6add9                          Dsus2
Yeah, you once sent me a letter that said if you're lost at sea
           A                                   E/G#
Close your eyes and catch the tide my dear and only think of me

      G                              D         
Well, darling now I'm sinking I'm as lost as lost can be
          E                Aadd9           Bsus4/D           E        A>Asus2
And I was hoping you could drag me up from down here towards my recovery

E7sus4
A/C#
Dsus2

A>Asus2
E7sus4
A/C#
D

-VERSE-

             A                           E7sus4
If you could just give me a sign, just a subtle little glimmer
       A/C#                                   Dsus2
Some suggestion that you'd have me if I could only make me better
             A                            E7sus4                       A/C#  Dsus2
Then I would stand a little stronger as I walk a little taller all the time

          A                          E7sus4
Because I know you are a cynic but I think I can convince you
            A/C#                         Dsus2
Yeah, cause broken people can get better if they really want to
      A                                  E7sus4              A/C#   D   E
Or at least that's what I have to tell myself if I am hoping to survive

-CHORUS-

             E7                Dsus2        E
Well, it's a long road up to recovery from here
  E7                   Dsus2>A/D>Asus2/D  E
A long way back to the light
  E7                Dsus2        E
A long road up to recovery from here
  E7                    D
A long way to making it right

-OUTRO-

    E
So, darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
Dsus2
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
E/G#
Darling, sweet lover, won't you help me to recover
Dsus2                                               Asus2
Darling, sweet lover, one day this will all be over

This is by no means perfect, and I intend to keep improving it until it is as good as it can get.
Anyone who disagrees with anything, feel free to comment on what and why.

Gsus4 G riff

-VERSE-

       Gsus4 riff
I have searched for you
       G riff                    Gsus4 riff
In the darkness of a dozen dingy dancefloors
   G riff                           Gsus4 riff
In countless queues of cafes in the suburbs
       G riff                             Gsus4 riff  G riff
In the bedclothes of a thousand strangers bedrooms

           Gsus4 riff
And I have yearned for you
       G riff                        Gsus4 riff
In the airless Hubs of international airports
       G riff                      Gsus4 riff
In the hollow hell of many hundred hotels
       G riff                    Gsus4 riff
In the solitary stillness of the early hours
            G riff
And I still do

-CHORUS-

Csus4
Sometimes the things you need
    C                         Gsus4 riff  G riff
Are right back where you started from

-VERSE-

              Gsus4 riff
So, fuck you, Hollywood
    G riff                             Gsus4 riff
For teaching us that love was free and easy
    G riff                        Gsus4 riff
For dressing all our daughters as princesses
    G riff                         Gsus4 riff  G riff
For gulling us with tales of happy endings

              Gsus4 riff
And fuck you, Motley Crue
    G riff                           Gsus4 riff
For charming us with access and with excess
    G riff                               Gsus4 riff
For telling tales that leave out all the dark sides
    G riff                           Gsus4 riff
For bringing out the lowest drive in everyone
         G riff
Oh, fuck you

Sometimes the things you need
    C                         Gsus4 riff  G riff

     C
They hang around a little while

Then they're good and gone

-BRIDGE-

           C/G riff               Dadd9 riff
If I could just have a second try
             C/G riff                        Dadd9 riff
I'd take the second call you made that night
                               C/G
Find myself an airport, find a credit card
                                                    G
Find a flight or something and I'd head back to the start

-CHORUS-

Csus4
Sometimes the things you need
    C                         Gsus4 riff  G
Are right back where you started from

Csus4
Sometimes the things I need
     C
They hang around a little while
             Gsus4 riff    G

            Gsus4 riff    G~
Yes they're good and gone

As always, the forum kinda screws up positioning, so you'll have to lisen to the song, but...

There are one or two little parts that I'm not 100% about. Namely in both A7 riffs. I went through about 6 different possible changes, but the bass and piano drown out Frank's guitar. Of the choices I came up with, this fit best. This has been driving me crazy for two days straight -second guessing myself and such- so I'. putting it out here and taking a break from it. I'm going to try and figure out the last four chords to Recovery and make a real start on either Tell Tale Signs or Anymore or.... *gulp* Undeveloped Films, Plain Sailing Weather, Losing Days, Polaroid Picture... Pretty much all of them xD

If anyone has any requests, just state them here and I'll try and get around to them.. eventually :P

As usual: any problems/ways I can improve it, just leave it here! :)

I'm been playing around with Tell Tale Signs a little bit, the verse sounds like it's Am, Em, Fmaj7, G and the chorus is mainly G C Fmaj7 with an Am in there somewhere, I think.

I've been AGONISING over the main riff in Time Machine. I knew the basic notes, but it needed to sound thicker. I THINK this is how Frank plays it, but this is the first song I've done where I'm actively doubting whether it's right. Even so, it sounds right and I knew a few people have wanted to play this, so here it is:

P.S. (I'll stop saying this eventually)
As always the forum skews the tabs, so you will have to use the song for reference.

P.P.S
Have fun :)

DannelsonUK: I give you Time Machine.
Marowak: you'll find Good & Gone up top (bridge and all ).

Drop me a reply when you try them, anything you think is wrong just let me know.

Next is probably Tell Tale Signs or Anymore :)
