/ Dashboard Confessional / The Places You Have Come to Fear the Most (2001) / The Brilliant Dance guitar tab

Dashboard Confessional - The Brilliant Dance

Tune the guitar to  Db-Ab-Db-Gb-Bb-Db as this is the tuning that Chris uses
for Screaming infidelities and The Best Deceptions as well as some other songs.
*it is crucial to use this exact tuning... so get a chromatic tuner if you have
to and get it tuned up.  then you can play these tabs along with the CD to get a
better understanding of the strumming because I will not fill in strumming patterns.

Verse 1        (there are only three chords in the verses)

      so this is strange,         the painful realization

*please note there are some 2nd guitar parts on top of Chris'  initial rythym guitar.
These include harmonics and short melodies.  I apologize if there are any mistakes but
I am quite sure that it is correct.   Enjoy
