Vignette Chords

(Version #1)
Twenty One Pilots
[Intro]
 
G#m7 F#maj7 A#m C# [x4]
 
G#m7 A#m [x2]
 
 
[Verse 1]
G#m7
   Not sure what it started
 A#m
Peeling from his bones
                            G#m7
Piece it back together all alone
                                     A#m
Hope it held together long enough for he
                                                      G#m7
To pitch the greener grasses and hope that she would agree
                              A#m
Fresh off a binger in the woods, flesh covered in bites
G#m7                                  A#m
   Testing what is real, what is good, man
It’s been a long night
 
 
[Pre‐Chorus]
        D#m                   A#m
It’s a tribute to zombies of which I’ve become
 G#m7
Where do I go from here? Where do I go from here?
 
 
[Chorus]
G#m7          F#maj7
    Clinging to   promisеs
A#m              C#
    Fighting off  the vignette
G#m7            F#maj7
    Tunnеls cave   visions fade
A#m              C#
    Swallowed by  the vignette
 
 
[Verse 2]
G#m7
  He’s thinking, “There’s no way I’m headed there”
A#m
Always sure footed, educated and was never scared
G#m7
Now he can’t hold out his hand without it shaking
A#m                                                 G#m7
Hounded by a bunch of dead when the search party found him
                           A#m
Fresh off a binger in the woods, flesh covered in bites
G#m7                                  A#m
   Testing what is real, what is good, man
It’s been a long night
 
 
[Pre‐Chorus]
        D#m                   A#m
It’s a tribute to zombies of which I’ve become
 G#m7
Where do I go from here? Where do I go from here?
 
 
[Chorus]
G#m7          F#maj7
    Clinging to   promisеs
A#m              C#
    Fighting off  the vignette
G#m7            F#maj7
    Tunnеls cave   visions fade
A#m              C#
    Swallowed by  the vignette
 
 
[Post-Chorus]
G#m7
No, not me, it’s for a friend
F#maj7
No, no, not me, it’s for a friend
A#m
No, not me, it’s for a friend
C#
No, no, not me it’s for a friend. Denial
 
 
[Instrumental]
 
G#m7 F#maj7 A#m C#
 
 
[Chorus]
G#m7          F#maj7
    Clinging to   promisеs
A#m              C#
    Fighting off  the vignette
G#m7            F#maj7
    Tunnеls cave   visions fade
A#m              C#

Strumming Pattern: Down-up-down-up continuously.
Emphasize the rhythm and changes in chords.
The lyrics describe a journey of struggle and realization.

Strum in a conventional down-up way.
Make sure it is smooth and give importance to the dynamics of how this
transition is going down.
[Chorus]

Chords: G#m7, F#maj7
Strumming Pattern: Down-up-down-up, with an emphasis on the downbeats.
Emotion definitely begins to seep in with the dynamics as the lyrics become
more emotional: strumming lightly here.
Represents the emotional tug and the struggle against feelings of overwhelming.
[Verse 2]

Chords: G#m7, A#m (repeated)
Same strumming pattern as verse 1.
Make the strumming cohesive and fluid.
Continues the narrative of personal struggles and introspection.
[Post-Chorus]

Chords: G#m7, F#maj7
Just strum each chord in a steady rhythm.
Focus in on creating a dynamic variation by subtly altering the rate at which you strum.

Down-up pattern used in the chorus section is the same here.
Keep the tempo steady and the transitions clear.

Tone: Use a clean or slightly overdriven tone on your amplifier.
Practice: Master the transition of chords slowly before attempting to speed up.
[Common Mistakes]
Practice slowly to smooth out the transitions between the chords with time.
Strumming not steady: Use a metronome and play along with it to develop a steady rhythm.
Strings: Mute slightly in order to let each string sound clearly.
[Song Facts]

intrapersonal perspective, and such use of lyrics can be shown. The lyrics detail
a story of struggle and torment in which the character is involved, from without and within.
Famous for their introspective lyrics and an amalgamation of a whole lot of genres, it holds
all the spirits of battling the inner demons while holding onto promises and memories.
