Hope you enjoy the TAB! Date: Fri, 3 Nov 1995 00:32:49 -0600 From: (Robert O'Neal) Subject: TAB: I'll Stick Around by Foo Fighters The other version of this song is fine except for one thing. You may notice on the video that Dave's hand isn't moving that much. If you tune your guitar up one half-step or use a capo on the first fret, the song is way easier to play. Note: The song "Butterflies" is also in this tuning.

Unfortunately, it's going to require a long stretch for the D#/Eb. It would look something like this: G5 D# Bb5 C5 N.C. 1:------3-3----------- 2:------4-4----------- 3:------3-3--3---5--0- 4:-5-5--1-1--3---5--0- 5:-5-5--1-1--1---3--0- 6:-3-3--------------0- The last strum of open zeros can also be played as just another C5. You can also get rid of that long D# stretch for the 1's by just playing (xxx343). Also, Dave plays the verse like the second tab posted here, but it sounds pretty bad on an acoustic. To make it easier, you can just play this progression: G7 F7 C 1:-3---1----- 2:-3---1---5- 3:-4---2---5- 4:-3---1---5- 5:-5---3---3- 6:-3---1----- It's not perfect, and it's not how I think they play the song, but it sounds decent. Finally, somewhere I saw it posted this way for the pre-chorus, and it's definitely right. The secret is that the last chord played is a C9, an uncommon chord. It goes something like this: A#5/F G C9 1:--------------3-3-3-3-3-3--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0- 2:--------------3-3-3-3-3-3--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3- 3:-3-3-3-3-3-3--0-0-0-0-0-0--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3- 4:-3-3-3-3-3-3--0-0-0-0-0-0--2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2- 5:-1-1-1-1-1-1--2-2-2-2-2-2--3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3- 6:-1-1-1-1-1-1--3-3-3-3-3-3-------------------------- Hope this helps.
