Re: You Are My Sun

Mark has such talent to write beautiful sounding stuff that is so simple. That's nice playing mate. After listing to Koz, I usually get inspired to write, then I get frustrated as I can't write stuff like that, and don't even get me started on my voice....

Re: You Are My Sun

Finally got round to tabbing it out so if anyone is interested in learning it here it is.

Sun Kil Moon - You Are My Sun

DADGAD (Capo 1st Fret)

Intro:

D|-0-----------0-------0------------------0-------------------0-----------0-------------------0-
A|---------0--------------------------0-------------------------------0---------------0---------
G|-----2-----------2-------2------0---------2h4---4---2---2-------0---------------2-------2-----
D|---4---4---4-------4---4---2------0---------------0-------0-------0-------2h4-----4-------4---
A|------------------------------3-------3-------3-------3---------------------------------------
D|-0-------------0----------------------------------------------0-------0-------0-------0-------


Then play this which keeps repeating for the verse:

D|---------------0---------------0-----------0-------------------0-
A|-------0---2-----------0---------------0---------------0---------
G|---0---------0-----0-------2-------0---------------2-------2-----
D|-----0---------------0-------0-------0-------2h4-----4-------4---
A|-3-------3-------3-------3---------------------------------------
D|---------------------------------0-------0-------0-------0-------

Then for the Bridge part:

D|-------------------------------0-------------------------------0-
A|-------0---------------0---------------0---------------0---------
G|---0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------2-------2-----
D|-----2-------2h5-----5-------5-------0-------2h4-----4-------4---
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------
D|-2-------2-------2-------2-------0-------0-------0-------0-------


D|---------------0---------------0--------------------------------0-
A|-------0---------------0----------------0---------------0---------
G|---0-------0-------0-------0--------0-------0-------2-------2-----
D|-----2-------2-------2-------2--------0-------2h4-----4-------4---
A|------------------------------------------------------------------
D|-2-------2-------2-------2--------0-------0-------0-------0-------


Repeat the above for the bridge and then it ends on this before breaking back into the verse pattern.

D|-------------------------------0-----------------------------0-
A|-------0---------------0---------------0---------------0-------
G|---0-------0-------2-------2-------0-------0-------2------2----
D|-----0-------2h4-----4-------4-------0-------2h4-----4------4--
A|---------------------------------------------------------------
D|-0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-----


Now for the chorus:

D|-7-------5-------4-------0-----------------------------------------------------------------------
A|-----0-------0-------0-------0---4-------0-------7-------9-------4-------5-------4-------0-------
G|-------0-------0-------0-------0-----0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0---
D|---------------------------------------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-------0-
A|---5-------5-------5-------5---------------------------------------------------------------------
D|-----------------------------------4-------5-------7-------9-------2-------4-------5-------2-----


D|-0---------------0---------------
A|---------0---------------0-------
G|-----0-------0-------0-------0---
D|-------0-------0-------0-------0-
A|---2-------2-------7-------0-----
D|---------------------------------


Repeat the above and then play this.

Instrumental part:

D|-5---5---4---------------------7---------------------------------------------
A|-------------5-----------4---5---------7-------4---5---4---------------4---5-
G|-----------------4---4-------------0-------0---------------2---4---4---------
D|-----------------------4-------------0-------0-------------------------------
A|---0---0---0---0---2-------2-------------------------------------------------
D|---------------------------------5-------5-------4---4---4---4---5---5---5---


D|-------------4---------------------------0-
A|-------3---5---------2---------------4-----
G|---4-------------2-------2---0---0---------
D|-----5-------------2-------2-------2-------
A|-3-------3-----2-------2-------------------
D|-------------------------------2-------2---


Then it goes back into the chorus. The second time he plays the instrumental where he sings over the top of it he adds this to the end of it.

D|-----------0-2-------0-------
A|-------4---------------------
G|---0-------------0-------0---
D|-----2-------------0-------0-
A|-----------------------------
D|-2-------2-----0-------0-----


Then back into the chorus.

Then the third and final time he plays the instrumenal he plays it like the first time and this time he goes into the end part which goes like this.

D|-2-2h4p2-------7-------------9p7-------------------------------------------------
A|---------5-4-5---------------------------------7--9------------7--5-4---5--4p2-4-
G|--------------------7--6--4---------7--6--4---6-------4--6-7---------------------
D|--------------------9--7--5---------9--7--5--7-----------------------------------
A|-----------------------------------------------------2---------------------------
D|-----------------0---------------0----------------------------6--------2---------


D|----------------4------------------------
A|---2h4h5--2h4h5---4h5p4p2-4-2--4h5p4p2-4-
G|-----------------------------------------
D|----------------------------------------- x2
A|-2---------------------------------------
D|-----------------------------------------


Play this next part once and then the above part again once.

D|------------------9--------------------------
A|---7h9h10--7h9h10---9h10p9p7-9-7--9h10p9p7-9-
G|---------------------------------------------
D|---------------------------------------------
A|-7-------------------------------------------
D|---------------------------------------------


D|----------------2------------------------
A|-----------------------------------------
G|---2h4h5--2h4h5---4h5p4p2-4-2--4h5p4p2-4-
D|-3----------------------------------------
A|----------------------------------------
D|-----------------------------------------


D|------------------------------2h3p2---2---
A|----------------2--2h3p2-3-2--------5---5-
G|------------------------------------------
D|---2h4h5--2h4h5---------------------------
A|-3----------------------------------------
D|------------------------------------------


D|--------------------------------------
A|--------------------------------------
G|----------------2---------------------
D|----------2h3h5----2h3p2-3-2--2p0-----
A|---2h3h5--------------------------3-2-
D|-3------------------------------------


D|-------------------------------------------
A|----------------5--4h5p4p2-4-2-------------
G|----------0h2h4----------------------------
D|---0h2h4-----------------------5p4p2-5-4-0-
A|-------------------------------------------
D|-0-----------------------------------------

And that's all the patterns of the song.

Re: You Are My Sun

Excellent Tab mate. You seem to have a good ear for this. You should do some of the older songs. Some of the tabs up on the Blue Guitar site are absolute crap written by folk that either don't play the guitar or have hearing difficulties.

Could you do one for Carry Me Ohio, either album version or live finger picking version. The tab for that one is utter shite.

Re: You Are My Sun

Thanks, no problem will do. I've pretty much learnt most of his live stuff over the years but just not tabbed them out. I'll get Carry Me Ohio tabbed out later on and post it for you. I've just worked out The Leaning Tree there and I'm on tabbing it out now so that should be up by tomorrow hopefully.

Re: You Are My Sun

You need to start your own Koz tab site/page. Your tabs are pretty flawless.

Re: You Are My Sun

They are that, as I said some of those other ones are pretty poor. Don't know if you're just good at tabbing the finger picking ones or not but there are loads of songs from the DCH and Rollercoaster albums that there should be good tabs for.

Re: You Are My Sun

Great idea about the site j-ho, never thought of that before. I've just set a up a Blogger page and left a link to it in my signature.

Badseed, I mainly play acoustic guitar so I tend to work out a lot of his live stuff but I can always give his other stuff a go.
