                             Faker - Sleepwalking
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------


tuning: E A D G B E

Not a bad tune, thought I'd have a crack at tabbing it, and this is what I've come 
up with. Hopefully it's close enough.

I've tried to include the strumming pattern as best I could, 
but apologies if you find any discrepancies with it. 
Anyway it's probably best if you pick up the pattern by 
listening to the song yourself.

KEY:
| /  slide up
| \  slide down
| h  hammer-on
| x  Mute note
|(0) optional note

 "Do-do do-do do-do-do   do do do  da  do..."


Then back into the VERSE (using the same pattern as the 1st verse):

"You used to call me up, 
then i'd forget what to say.
You said 'This message is sleepwalking,
and i thought maybe you'd come my way"

CHORUS (same as 1st time, except play x2):

"It still feels a little of the time (theres no fighting),
Like i've been letting go (and no talking),
It still feels a little of the time (theres no writing),
That you've been good to know (I'm sleepwalking),
It still feels a little of the time (theres no fighting),
Like i've been letting go (and no talking),
It needs no reason or rhyme (there's no writing),
But i'm here and good to go (just sleepwalking)."

|------------------------------------------------------------------------|x2
                      "Do-do do-do do-do-do   do do do  da  do..."

3rd VERSE (same as the 1st and 2nd verses, except it leads into the bridge:

"And if we all died alone, 
in the mess of these games we play.
You've got some history of sleepwalking, 
'cept, what the f*** is that anyway?"

onto the small BRIDGE kinda part:

|---5---5---5---------------------------------------------------------|
|---5---5---5------------------------3---3---3------------------------|
|---5---5---5------------------------4---4---4------------------------|
|---7---7---7------------------------5---5---5------------------------|

|---x---x---x------------------------x---x---x------------------------|
               "there's no fighting,                  and no talking"

|---x---x---x------------------------x---x---x------------------------|
              "there's no writing,             i'm sleepwalking"

onto the CHORUS x2
and this bit, using the same pattern as the chorus but with different lyrics:

|---------5-----5-------x------5---5---------------------------------|
|---------5-----5-------x------5---5--3--3--3---x----3--3--3---x-----|
|---------5-----5-------x------5---5--4--4--4---x----4--4--4---x-----|

|--------(0)---(0)------x-----(0)-(0)(0)(0)(0)--x---(0)(0)(0)--x-----|
|---------x-----x-------x------x---x--x--x--x---x----x--x--x---x-----|
         1. "Defensive, cultures;"
         2. "that romances, they don't hold us,"
         3. "And distraction, it favours,"
         4. "As you write here, did you notice,"

|--------------------------------------------------------------------|
|-3----3----3-----x--3-----1--1--1---x---1--1--1---x-----------------|
|-4----4----4-----x--4-----2--2--2---x---2--2--2---x-----------------|
|-5----5----5-----x--5-----3--3--3---x---3--3--3---x-----------------|

|-x----x----x-----x--x-----x--x--x---x---x--x--x---x-----------------|
  1. "as you write here, did you notice.,"
  2. "they're a weight on my shoulders."
  3. "all the things, o-, o-, over-rated."
  4. "that romances, they don't hold us."

On the fourth time, instead of strumming the final chord 6 times, just 
strum it a few times and head straight into this bit to finish off the song:

|--------------------------|
|--------------------------|
|------9-\-7-7-\-5-5-\-----|
|------x-x-x-x-x-x-x-x-----|
|------7-\-5-5-\-3-3-\-----|

|-----------3-3---3---3-/7--3------------------------------------|
|------3/5------5---5---------5--5--3---3--3---5-1-0-------------|
|-------------------------------------5------------2-------------|
|--------------------------------------------------3-------------|
|-------------------------------------------------(0)------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|x3
      "Do-do do-do do-do-do   do do do  da  do... (sleepwalkin')"

END!
