white stripes - the nurse

----------------------------------- | The Nurse | | Words and Music by Jack White | | Tabbed by Patrick Ferris | ----------------------------------- ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- | Tab Definitions: | | G: 320003 OR 320033 | | G/b: x20003 | | G/d: xx0033 | | C: x32010 | | C/e: xx2010 | |Csus4: x33011 | | D: xx0232 | | Bb: x133xx | | Eb5: xx134x | | D5: xx023x | | G5: 355xxx | | (X~): Treble distortion so severe that the electric guitar is unrecognizable | | b: Bend to note | | P.M.: Palm muting | ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I have put two rows of chords above the marimba progression. The first line represents the actual tonality (T) of the progression. The second line presents the chord positions (P) that contain the notes. In the verses, the chord positions are displayed because the tonality is too unspecific. I left out some decorations in the marimba part to keep it simple. It is best played with the fingers.
