"High and Dry"

This is the basic pattern for the verses
|---------|---------|---------|---------|
|---------|---------|---------|---------|
|---------|--12-----|---------|---------|
|--14-----|---------|--12-----|--0------|

This is the chorus...basically the same thing.
|---------|--------|---------|
|---------|--------|---------|
|---------|--0-----|---------|
|--2------|--------|--0----0-|

Now, you really needed my help for this one?
Easy, but very good song.



Key Cm or D#maj
The first measure is Thom alone on acoustic then the bass kicks in

"/" = slide up
"\" = slide down

*NOTE* The parts listed below do not always follow in this exact order.  
You need to listen to the recording to get the exact progression down.

Intro
G |----------|----------------|---------------|----------------|
D |----------|----------------|---------------|----------------|
A |----------|----------------|--3-3-3-3-3-3--|--5-6-6-6-6-(3)-|
E |--3--3----|--5-6--6-6-6-6--|(5)------------|----------------|

Verse - the verse can basically be broken down into three unique parts:

I.
G |---------|---------|---------|---------|
D |---------|---------|---------|---------|
A |---------|---------|-6-5-6--8--10--12\-|
E |-5--5--5-|-4--4--4-|---------|---------|

II.
G |---------|---------|---------|---------|
D |---------|---------|---------|---------|
A |---------|---------|-6-5-6--8--10---8\-|
E |-5--5--5-|-4--4--4-|---------|---------|

III.
G |---------|-------------|---------|-------------|
D |---------|-------------|---------|-------------|
A |---------|--5-6-8-6-5--|---------|--3-5-6-3-5--|
E |---5-7---|-------------|---4-5---|-------------|

III (b).  - last part of verse, heading to pre-chorus

G |---------|--------|---------|
D |--5-7-5--|--4-6-4-|--3------| (to prechorus)
A |---------|--------|---------|
E |---------|--------|---------|

Pre-Chorus x2
G |-----------|-----------|
D |-----------|-----------|
A |-----------|-----------|
E |--8-8-8-8-6-6-6-5-5----|

Chorus
G |---------|--------------|-----------------|--------------|
D |---------|--------------|-----------------|--------------|
A |---------|--------------|-----3-3-3-3-3-3-|-5-6-6-6-6-(3)|
E |--3-3----|-5-6--6-6-6-6-|-(5)-------------|--------------|

Then every once in a while, the prechorus varies to this.

G |--------------------|------------------------|
D |--------------------|------------------------|
A |--------------------|------------------------|
E |--8-8-8-8-6-6-6-5-5--/-11-11-8-11-11-8-8-11\-| (something to that effect)
