Guster

This is actualy played with the guitar tuned as an open D chord 
(D,A,F#,D,A,D), but I Hate to tune my guitar up and down, so
therefore is this version played on guitar with standard tuning
(But I have to admit, that it sounds better the other way, and 
if you really like to play this song, you should try it that way)  

The intro can be play as D followed by a Dsus4

e  ---2---2^3-2---2^3--- and so on... Listen to the song and you will
b  ---3---3---3---3----- easily learn the rhythm
g  ---2---2---2---2-----
d  ---0---0---0---0-----
a  ---x---x---x---x-----
E  ---x---x---x---x-----

         D       D      D/F#    D/G      Also here listen to the song and learn the rhythm.
e  ------2-------2-------2-------2-----  Use your thumb to play the bass on the E-sting, 
b  ------3-------3-------3-------3-----  or use your index finger to cover both the e- and 
g  ------2-------2-------2-------2-----  g-string (your ring finger on the b-sting of
d  --0---0---0---0-------0-------0-----  course), and use the middle finger to play the bass.
a  ------x-------x-------x-------x-----  Or use a third way. Just make it sound good...
E  ------x-------x---2--(2)--3--(3)----

D         D     D/F#    D/G
There we stand about to fly 
D           D           D/F#       D/G
Peeking down over land parachute behind 
D             D           D/F#     D/G
What was that moment for which we live? 
D          D          D/F#    D/G   (A)
Without a parachute about to dive 

Chorus:
A                G
I find myself convincing
A                G 
Blindly falling faster 
(G)  D        A 
How easy Ohhh oh
(A)                 G
Know the place I'm leaving 
(G)                   D     Dsus4 (as intro)
And the rest just is gone 

Verse: (as the first)

Oh the adoration 
But how much strength does it take 
For exploration, for split decision 
Or are you stronger to remain 

Chorus:
A                G
I find myself convincing
A                G 
Blindly falling faster 
(G)  D        A 
How easy Ohhh oh
(A)                 G
Know the place I'm leaving 
(G)                   D     Dsus4 (as intro)
And the rest just is gone

The following B-part is just changing between D and G, but the second 
guitar has this little thing going on, which sounds really good. I think
this way of playing it, is pretty close...

when the D-chord is played:     When the G-chord is played:  

--5-----5-----5------           --7-----7-----7--------
----3-----3-----3----           ----7-----7-----7------
---------------------           ------7-----7-----7---- Both repeated as many
------4-----4-----4--           ----------------------- times as needed
---------------------           -----------------------
---------------------           -----------------------

B-part

D
It crept up on me 

Ignored all my pleas 
G
Begging to leave 

No justice to name me 
D
Fell out of the sky 

Cease it to be 
G
Without a reply 

Gravity fails me 
D
And when I awoke 

I knew what was real 
G
Hope to convince you 

Lies they all torture me 
D
Opened the door 

Knew what was me 
G
I finally realized 

Parachute over me



Chords used:                          
    D  D/F#  D/G Dsus4  G   A 
e  -2---2-----2----3----3---0------
b  -3---3-----3----3----3---2------
g  -2---2-----2----2----0---2------
d  -0---0-----0----0----0---2------
a  -x---x-----x----x----2---0------
E  -x---2-----3----x----3---x------


If you wanna use the original tuning the chord are:
    D    D*  D/F#  D/G Dsus4  G   A 
d  -0-or-0----0-----0----0----0---2-----------
a  -5----0----5-----5----0----2---4-----------
f# -3----0----3-----3----1----1---3-----------
d  -0----0----0-----0----0----0---2-----------
a  -0----0----0-----0----0----2---0-----------
d  -0----0----4-----5----0----0---0-----------

I Use the ordenary D in the verse, and the D* in the B-part and in the intro (with the Dsus4)  
or just do what think sounds best


The finger picking thing sounds, with the original tuning, good this way:

when the D-chord is played:     When the G-chord is played:  

--7-----7-----7------           --9-----9-----9--------
----5-----5-----5----           ----9-----9-----9------ (also here)
------0-----0-----0--           ----------------------- Both repeated as many
---------------------           ------9-----9-----9---- times as needed
---------------------           -----------------------
---------------------           -----------------------


That was it... enjoy this fine song
