Overwhelming

As recorded by Everclear on "SFAAM #2: Good Time for a Bad Attitude"

Tabbed by Jason Pan (balaka@alphalink.com.au)

Thanks to Hugh Yik for pointing out the tuning

FIRSTLY: This song is tuned half a step down. This is how its played on

the album. A tab of this song in standard tuning follows this tab ie. keep

scrolling down and you'll find it.

VERSION 1: Tuning half a step down

NOTE: Tuning is half a step down (Low to High EbAbDbGbBbeb)

All Chords are written with respect to that tuning

(ie A becomes G#)

 

(Verse Riff)

B F# Ebm Db

Eb|-----------5--3----------------------------------|

 

(No Guitar) (Verse riff)

It can come from out of nowhere

Hit you when you're safe and warm

Take it easy my star

Your time is gonna come

Your time is gonna come

 

You got those crazy blue eyes

Yeah, you got those crazy blues

All those pretty smiles

I can see them laughing at you

Your time is gonna come

Your time is gonna come

 

(FOR CHORUS: Guitar (probably with a chorus pedal) plays each chord

once, while another strums the chords continuously behind with palm

muting)

 

(NOTE: Remember that it's tuned 1/2 step down. So play a B chord

like you would play a C in standard tuning.)

(verse riff through 2nd verse)

Yeah you say you got this bad thing

You say you got it bad

You have broken every heart

Of every friend you've ever had

Some day the time will come

When all your friends will go away

 

I wonder why I stick around

Sometimes I wish you would leave

You say you'll love me forever

Then you spit on me

Your time is gonna come

(Distorted Guitar plays each chord once, while another play continuously

behind it but palm muted. Chords are the same as the first chorus so play B

like you would play a C in standard tuning or look at the first chorus for

exact shape)
