HAPPY HOME - Garbage

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: gothimyes

Email: got_him_yes AT hotmail.com

 

Tuning: Drop D (D A D G B e)

 

This song is more complex than you think...

 

Any comments or problems, just email me

 

Note: The outro is a bitch, and it sounds like there are 2 guitars and synth

all playing in opposite directions, so I've only tabbed 1 of them.

If you play along you should notice that it fits in well

 

Enjoy!

 

 

Verse 1 (guitar, vocals only)

 

This is palm-muted, on only 1 string. I won't write the repetitions, it's

easy to figure out anyway, just listen to the song

"I never once in my wayward life was heading to run out"

 

Verse 2

 

Palm-muted as well (until just before the chorus, D)

Use 2 strings this time if you want. Notice that the 1st line is different to

the first verse.

 

 

D F Bb F E

In my lovers arms I wait for morning

D F G A

I beg my god to speak and tear me apart

Bb F G A

I'd lay down my body I'd lay down my arms

Bb F G D

I never once in my sweet short life meant anybody harm

 

 

Chorus

Use full power chords this time (eg, D = 000---)

Listen for repetitions, and for palm-mute at the end

 

Bb F G D Bb F A

 

 

Verse 3

Same instructions as previous verse.

Notice that the 1st 2 lines here are different to the previous verses.

 

D C Bb F E

In my happy home i read the signs

D C Bb A

In my lovers arms I move in time

Bb F G A

There's no more crying and there's no more lies

Bb F G D

I never once in my sweet short life was waiting for desire

 

 

Chorus

same as before

 

 

Bridge

power chords again. The D# here is -688--

 

F C D# Bb F

 

 

Verse 4

Same palm-muting, etc

 

Bb F

And there's no more crying

G A

And there's no more pain

Bb F G D

I never thought for one second I'd have nothing left but shame

 

 

Chorus

 

 

Outro (guitar, vocals only)

Same 1 string thingy as per Verse 1. Notes are different here though

Listen for the timing of chords for the instrumental outro thing

"I never once in my wayward life was heading to run out"

 

(Instrumental outro)

This is a bit tricky so read carefully.

The first line is just the lead-in, and has no repetition

The 6 lines after that uses high F, but after that it uses low F

 

D = 000----------|

Dh (D high) = -577---------|

D# = -688---------|

F = 333----------|

Fh (F high) = -8(10)(10)---|

 

-------------------------------------

 

C Bb Dh Bb F D# Bb C# D#

 

Fh C D# Bb

Fh D# Bb G# Bb

Fh C D# Bb

Fh D# Bb C# D#

Fh C D# Bb

Fh D# Bb G# Bb

 

F C D# Bb

F D# Bb G# Bb

F C D# Bb

F D# Bb C# D#

F etc...
