Portland Rain

Post by George » Fri Jan 26, 2007 6:08 pm

So this forum pretty much died, no posts in three months? Anyway, I just saw this song played live last Friday and I was inspired to start tabbing it. I haven't tabbed anything in a long time and I forgot how tedious it is, so I'm going to start by just posting the lead intro, and if anyone wants the rest I'll see what I can do.

Code: Select all

D|--------------------------------------------------|
A|-/18-17-15----------------------------------------|
F|-----------17-14-15-17-15-14h15p14\12-12h14p12\10-|
C|--------------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------------------------------|
D|--------------------------------------------------|

D|----------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------|
F|-10-12-10-9----9------------------------------------------|
C|------------12---10---8h10p8\7--7h8p7\5--5h7p5\3--3h5p3\2-|
G|----------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------|
I went ahead and did a quick recording to give you an idea of what this sounds like. Here's the link to hear it:

Portland Rain (Intro)

For the rhythm, I'm just going back and forth between [x5455x] and [x6566x]. It doesn't sound exactly like the keyboards but it's close.

That's awesome. Thanks a ton! I haven't really seen any tabs for anything off WTTDC except the ones that even I could figure out (drama king, glorious, now). I'd certainly be interested in seeing more if you'd be so inclined to even just give the chord shapes. Thanks again.

I have most of WTTDC figured out and I actually enjoy tabbing stuff out - as long as there's some kind of feedback. When the album was first released, two threads requesting tabs popped up that I posted in and nobody responded to either of them, so I gave up. Anyway, if there's a song or a part of a song in particular you'd like tabbed, just let me know. Here's the main chord progression in Portland Rain:

Code: Select all

D|-----5-5-------------------5-5---------3----------6-6-------------------------------|
A|-----6-6--------6---6\5----5-5---------3----------6-6-------5-----------------------|
F|-----5-5--------7---7\6----6-6---------4----------7-7-------6---------9--9--9--9--9-|
C|-----7-7-x-x----6---6\5----5-5------------5-------6-6-------5--------10-10-10-10-10-|
G|-5-5-5-5-x-x----8-8--------7-7-x-x-3h5----5-5/8-8-8-8-x-x---7---7/10-10-10-10-10-10-|
D|--------------6-6--------5-5-5-x-x-3------3-3/6-6-6-6-x-x-5-5---5/8---8--8--8--8--8-|
The chorus ("The only place that I want to be...") is D5 [x577xx] -> A5 [577xxx] -> F5 [133xxx] -> G5 [355xxx].

Wow! Thanks so much for that. I wish that I was able to figure this stuff out on my own, but in the mean time I'm glad that there are dedicated people out there that will give there time to tab it out. I almost hate to ask, but "Broken"? I know the intro and the versus, but if you can give me the chords on that, I sure won't ask for anything else. It's (other than Portland Rain and Clean) the only song I like that I' m stuck on. Thanks again. You rock!
