If you can wait till Thursday, I might have time. I remember figuring most of it out when the album came out, but haven't bothered to really tab much. I finish my summer courses on Thursday, I can try to start/finish it. It's a pretty simple one.

I've been wondering where Roger has been with the new album. He seems to be the go-to guy for tabs around these parts.
The night keeps looking our way.

Ha, yeah, been a little busy. I'm still working on this one, there's a few chords to work out, but 95% of it's there.
I'll try to get a few more songs done within the week.

Hello All:

I'm a new fan of the band (first listen six months or so ago) and I wanted to thank Roger and all who have provided tablature. The songs are fun to play along to and I wouldn't be able to do it without you guys! You just can't find good tablature for bands like TDH (the Flower Kings and Isis two others who are hard to find)

Thank you!
Jon

Okay, a few things. The chorus isn't really played with chords, but I put what the relative chords should/might be. I'll post what I think is actually played a little later. Also, on "we've cheated fate again" the C/B doesn't really sound right, it's played much like the chorus and that should be the chord but it actually might be diminished or something, I can't tell. But once again, I'll post that fill a little later, so you can play it as it is on the record.
Also, for the E7, sometimes it's played like this 020130, after the chorus.
And I'm not 100% on this but it seems pretty good to me.

Little harsh, it may be the worst song on the album, but I think it's a pretty fun, cathcy song. It's not too long, and it works well for what it is. If throwing it in as a crappy filler song just to widen their appeal was the intention, then I'm fine with that.

it is fun. it is ironic. thats why people want to learn it.
and as long as we're being condescending, if you don't get it, fine, you don't get it.

Just because it's not very complex doesn't mean it's not a good song. I think there's a hell of alot more to it than just being "fun and ironic".

9/10, Jeff. Could've done with a few "clusterfuck"s thrown in, though.

I know he was looking to get a reaction out of people, just 'cause it's fun right? You know, as far as fucking with people on the internet goes.
I know a lot of people who actually do cringe every time Go Get Your Gun is played, and I thought I'd share my opinion, even if it was a joke in the first place.
Next time I'll just shut up and watch. Maybe I'll even figure it out how letting people argue over something you don't really mean is so damn funny.

And for the record, joking aside:

I love this song.
The vocal harmonies are outstanding.
