Frank Black - Czar guitar tab

Your rating:
From: (Eric J Schwarzenbach)

I found this tab of Czar at a Nevada mirror site and made a few corrections.
These corrections are:

1) Replaced the open E chord at the end of the Verse Riff with a higher bar
   chord (the riff definitely rises at the end).
2) Modified the A E F# chord progression that occurs at the end of each verse
   "Band . . ." "Thanks . . ." "No . . ." with A G# F# (the progression definitely
3) Added the florish in the middle of the chorus (at the end of the line
   "who has sung his bars") E F F# (I think there's a musical name for this florish
   but I can't think of it).

I'd be happy to hear any feedback.

Czar (Frank Black)

The lyrics are from memory, please correct!

The Chords:

 A    F#   G#  C#m

The Verse Riff:

 B       Em     C#      E
-4---4---2-2-2--6--6-6--9--9-9- repeat...
 ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^   ^

You have to listen closely to the recording to hear the
Em/E/Esus thingy he does after the B...

The timing is pretty easy to learn, and I tried to indicate
it as close as I could with the lyrics.

The Song:

(Riff x 2)

Time...      If he could travel

Time...      He would have been on

Time...      Instead of making

Rhyme...     He didn't need a

    A       G#  F#

N.C.              (Riff)
He was a moutain man

Oil...       The national

Turmoil....  They hide it in the

Soil...      I say no read head

Spoil...     Just singing

     A      G#  F#

N.C.                    (Riff x 2 w/ only bass strings)
I've got my own gas tanks


F#              G#             C#m
 And there's no time for the man

        A         E		E F F#
Who has sung his bars

And there's no time

G#              C#m              A      E
 And there's no time for the man called Czar

Blue...      Extrodinary

Blue...      Ten million port hole

Views...     They're saying on the

News...      The Russians just say

   A      G#  F#

You can't go
