                          Alexisonfire- Rough Hands (Acoustic Version)

Tuning: Original is in Eb, Ab, Db, Gb, Bb, Eb, but it sounds fine in E, A, D, G, B, E

This is NOT an official tab, just something i worked out in music class, whilst messing 
with a classical piece,
i thought of this song, and thought it would be a great idea to play it acoustic.
perfect for solo playing/maybe singing (though George's parts sang clean obviously, haha)

But it took me ages to tab out, don't be too harsh, ;)


(Rhythm and Structure not shown)



intro pt 2 (lead, with bass notes)


Rhythm chords (just strum along with the song rhythm, sounds great with the top 4 
strings ringing open )

Em: 0|2|2|0|0|0
G6: 3|2|0|0|0|0
C6: 8|10|0|0|0|0
B6: 7|9|0|0|0|0


Em     G6
was I left behind?
C6                       B6
Someone tell me, tell me I survived.
Em            G6            C6                        B6
Don't look so surprised that I'm home, but just for tonight.
Em                  G6
With rough hands and sore eyes

C6                  B6
so don't speak, I am tired.
Em           G6                    C6            B6
Let's just live through this lie.

Pre Chorus (Intro pt 2 played underneath this, as lead)

Em             G6
She says i swear too much,
C6             B6
she says a lot of things,
Em                          G6                    C6
well I'd swear every other word if I could
for her I'll make an attempt.
Em                      G6             C6                              B6
Sometimes love isn't about how much someone suits you
Em                   G6                              C6            B6
but how much you're willing to change to suit them.

(break between the pre chorus and chorus, just strum B6, then , maybe a percussive 
to signal Jordan's intro drum beat to the chorus)

Em       G6            C6
All my bones are dust,
(Two people too damaged too much too late)
Em         G6                         C6
and my heart's sealed with rust.
(Two people too damaged too much too late)
Em                     G6
These hands will always be rough.
C6                     B6
(Two people too damaged too much too late)
Em             G6                       C6
I know this won't count for much.
(Two people too damaged too much too late)

just carry on in the same vein as this, just listen to the song and work out a structure.

any feedback is welcome, enjoy :D
