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..

  4. This is absolutely brilliant, I tried figuring this one out and I got something along the lines of this, but this is just much more refined. The one thing I could never figure out was the fast legato bit in the acoustic section. Are you planning to do one for Cannibal Resource?

  5. Nice work, great tab. I find the fast legato a bit easier to play moving up the fretboard a little earlier by playing (4th bar):

    e|--------5p0-|
    B|-3----------|
    G|---5--------|
    D|-5---4------|
    A|------------|
    E|------------|

    instead of:

    e|--------5p0-|
    B|-3s1--------|
    G|------------|
    D|------------|
    A|------4-----|
    E|------------|

    I think the G bass on that first beat sounds right too. What do you reckon?

  6. And another thing, I think the 2nd and 3rd bars are played like this:
    e|------------|-----------|
    B|------------|------0----|
    G|-0-----5----|-5s7-----0-|
    D|------------|-----------|
    A|------------|-----------|
    E|-3--------5-|------5----|

    rather than this:
    e|------------|-----------|
    B|-------1----|-1s3-------|
    G|-0----------|---------0-|
    D|------------|-----------|
    A|----------0-|------2----|
    E|-3----------|-----------|

    Pretty much the same notes, I know, but it sounds cleaner.

  7. Opps. Sorry people. Bar 3 should read:

    e|-----------|
    B|------0----|
    G|-5s7-----0-|
    D|-----------|
    A|-----------|
    E|------7----|

    and not:

    e|-----------|
    B|------0----|
    G|-5s7-----0-|
    D|-----------|
    A|-----------|
    E|------5----|

    Note to self - never tab without guitar in hand.

  8. Hey Matt, thanks for your input. Those sound like totally viable alternatives to what I wrote out and I can see how those would be more comfortable for some folks. Thanks for sharing.

    And seanmw, if you read this I did get halfway through Cannibal Resource over a month ago and I haven't had time to finish it lately.. but I will. Useful Chamber is about half done as well.

  10. Awesome tab man. You have a great ear. Though I play the legato thing like this:

    e|--------5p0-|---------.--|-.-------------|
    B|-3p1--------|-3--p0---3--|-1-------------|
    G|------------|---5-----4--|-2---------0h2-|
    D|------4-----|------------|---0g2-0h2-----|
    A|------------|------------|---------------|
    E|------------|------------|---------------|

    Instead of this:

    e|--------5p0-|---------.--|-.-------------|
    B|-3p1--------|-3p1p0---3--|-1-------------|
    G|------------|---------4--|-2---------0h2-|
    D|------4-----|------------|---0g2-0h2-----|
    A|------------|------------|---------------|
    E|------------|------------|---------------|

    as it achieves that more harp-like sustain, is technically easier and sounds more like the record.
