Scott Matthews


Capo 3rd fret.

NOTE: I tried to find a tab on the internet somewhere that could give me an idea of how 
to play this amazing song, unfortunately I came up empty handed.

I do think that this is the correct tuning, Scott uses DADF#Ad a lot, so I was messing 
around with that tuning, and dropping the 5th string down to a G seemed to do the trick.
I'd welcome any suggestions, this is just how I think he plays it.

Bear in mind this is just a guide, I haven't figured out all the little arpeggios in 
between, this will give you a structure to work with, and I hope a better tab can come 
about from this.


Intro/ Verse Riff

d |-----0-----------0------0------0------|
A |9------9----9------9------9-----------|
D |--------------------------------------|
G |------------0-------------------------|
D |9-------------------------------------|

d |----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0-----0--|
A |4-----4----/7-----7-----7-----7-----4-----4------|
D |-------------------------------------------------|
G |------------------------0-----------0------------|
D |4----------/7------------------------------------|

So you can mess around with those notes, the bass notes are correct I think, but the 
arpeggios are anyone's call, this is what I've been trying, although I'm still trying to 
figure out what he plays exactly.


d |4---------5---------9---------12--------11\7---------7---------5---------4---------|
A |----0---0-----0---0-----0---0-----0---0--------0---0-----0---0-----0---0-----0---0-|
D |-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G |0---------0---------0---------0----------------------------------------------------|
D |----------------------------------------0------------0---------0---------0---------|

Once again, the bass notes are correct, I'm sure, I've just added this arpeggio in to 
show how it could flow, by listening to the song. Also I'm not too sure about the very 
last bit of the chorus, so maybe someone could attempt that!
I hope this gives a starting point for other tabs to follow and improve.
