Falling Away by Good Charlotte

Tabbed by Yahiko

 

Feel free to send me questions or comments at gothegoatee@sbcglobal.net

Tuning: 1/8 step above standard tuning

Key: C#

 

I have two versions of the intro. They both sound the same, the fingering is the only

difference. So whichever one works better for you is just fine, they are interchangeable.

 

Intro (version 1) Play this two times

Only play the (4) on the repeat

e|------------------------------------------------------|

B|------------------------------------------------------|

G|------------------------------------------------------|

D|------------------------------------------------------|

A|--6-8-9-8-6-8--6-8-9-8-6-4---6-8-9-8-6-9--8-6-4-3-(4)-|

E|------------------------------------------------------|

 

or you can use...

 

Intro (version 2) Play this two times

Only play the (9) on the repeat

e|------------------------------------------------------|

B|------------------------------------------------------|

G|------------------------------------------------------|

D|------------------------------------------------------|

A|--6-8-9-8-6-8--6-8-9-8-6----6-8-9-8-6-9--8-6----------|

E|-------------------------9-------------------9-8-(9)--|

 

You can decide for yourself where you want to put the slides/hammer-ons/pull-offs in

the intro, it really doesn't matter that much.

 

Chorus:

For the melody guitar, just play the intro over the vocals, you can hear where it goes.

 

As for the chords...

The above chords part gets played two times through obviously. Just follow the lead

guitar with it and you'll be good to go. You don't have to mute the low E string if

you don't want. In that case you could use the standard power chords, Drop-D power

chords, or you could even tune the low E-string 1/8 step above C# and have a nice

low root bass always there. I'd recommend the third out of those three, then for the

rest of the chords in the song you could just leave the low E string open and explore

some different chord voicings.

 

 

Chorus at key change: (Key is now a full step up to D#)

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

D|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

A|--8-10-11-10-8-10--8-10-11-10-8----8-10-11-10-8-11--10-8--------------|

E|-------------------------------11-----------------------11-10-(11)----|

 

Obviusly you'd just play the same chords for the chorus as before, just two frets up

then before.

 

 

Since a synthesizer or something like that backs the verses and not guitar, you really

can't do much guitar over them anyway except for once you hear them come in with the

guitars themselves. Here's the best I've got so far...

 

Verse 1:

 

And tonight we burn down everything, We worked so hard to build...

e|------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|--------------------------------------------6---------------------|

D|------4------------------6------------------6---------------------|

A|------4------------------6------------------4---------------------|

E|------2------------------4----------------------------------------|

 

The ashes will rain down on me, memories set aflame sail away...

e|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|----------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|----6---------------------------------------------------------------6-|

D|----6---------------------------------4---------------6-------------6-|

A|----4---------------------------------4---------------6-------------4-|

E|--------------------------------------2---------------4---------------|

 

What we said, if we can make this, than we can break this into two memories

e|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

B|--------------------------------------------------------------------------|

G|-----------6--------------------------------------------------------------|

D|-----------6-----------------------------------------------------4------6-|

A|-----------4-----------------------------------------------------4------6-|

E|-----------------------------------------------------------------2------4-|

 

All of the verses follow that same formula so that covers all the verses. I tried to

line up the syllables with the timing, but ultimately you're better off listening to

them for yourself. Same with the chords, I only put where the chord change goes because

I don't want to put a gazillion chords to confuse you when you'll just have to end up

figuring it out yourself anyway. I would probably use either a light palm muted strum

or a harmonic melody in an alternate tuning when the synthesizer takes over and I'd

recommend a combination of reverb, delay, and no distortion.

 

Hopefully I'll have the full plain chord version of this song up soon ^_^
