Dirty Projectors - Naked We Made It


Sweet ditty circa the Glad Fact. Don't forget the grunting noises.

Dirty Projectors - Spray Paint (The Walls)


Another favourite. The tab is a little long-winded but it's essentially 16 bars of material repated a few times with variations.

Dirty Projectors - Ground Underfoot


Here's an oldie and one of my favourites from the Glad Fact. Watch out for wide fingerings here and there.

This is my first tab with rhythm markings, let me know if it helps!

Dirty Projectors - Rise Above


This one's about as note-for-note as I care to get. Some parts were obscured by all the singing so I've made my best guesses in those cases.

Keep in mind that the chords being arpeggiated are played totally differently in the various performances I've watched of this song, so don't feel bound to what's written here, I just wanted to try and pin down the album version.

By request, I've also made a chords-only version.

Updated on September 5th with a list of all the chords in the song and a more accurate depiction of the quickly down-brushed notes in the Bbm7 chords.

The Prisonaires - Just Walkin' In The Rain


I first heard this song on a mix I was given several years ago and it wasn't until about a month ago that I learned how to play it. It's a beautiful, simple and soulful song that was written and sung by Johnny Bragg and four other inmates at the Tennessee State Penitentiary in 1953. The version of this track that I found on Youtube seems to conflict with the version I learned, so I've posted the one I know below. Enjoy.

Dirty Projectors - Temecula Sunrise


As accurate a tab I could make without adding in beat markers (1 & 2 & etc.) This one was a lot of fun to work out and it becomes surprisingly easy to play once you get the hang of it. Singing over it is another matter..

Hot off the press!

Dirty Projectors - Two Doves

I'm using this space to gradually post guitar tabs I've written of songs that have no preexisting equivalent on the internet. I've started with "Two Doves" by the Dirty Projectors and will be writing one for "The Bride" fairly soon.

Updated as of August 18th, 2009 with fixes to various inaccurate passages esp. in the Chorus and Intro.
