Life Ain't What It Seems chords

John Butler Trio

Key: 

Music & Lyrics by John Butler From the album "Three" By The John Butler Trio Tabbed by - Tom Walker This is not in anyway note for note of what he plays but more of a guide of where he plays this song on the fret board. It should be enough to get you playing along with the song with all its little fills and improves. Tuning Open C - all numbers in respect to capo Intro Let Ring through out e|---------------------------------------------|--------------------------------- C|------------7-(7)p0--------4-p-0-------------|----------9-(9)p0--------4-4---- G|-----5---------0-------------0---------------|-------------0----------------0-- C|-0-0------------------0--------------0-2h4p2-|--0-0---------------0------------ G|------------5-(5)p0----0--2------2h4---------|----------7-(7)p0----0--2-------- C|-0-------------------------------------------|--0------------------------------ e|------------------------------------------------------------------------------ C|-0-h2/4-2-2h4h2p0------------------------------------------------------------- G|------------------4/5-------------------------------------------------------- C|------------------------------------------------------------------------------ G|----0-------------0----------------------------------------------------------- C|------------------------0----------------------------------------------------- For the heavier parts just play the above bit but with strumming all of the strings, you'll soon get the notes while listening to the song.

Tabbed by - Hamish, email-removed Heres the solo to Life, because it isn't included on other tab. I think this solo is played with a lap-steel Im not sure if is right, but the rest of the song is the open C, capo on the fith-fret. I use CGCGCC for this song. All numbers in repect to capo C---------------------------------------------------------------------------- C-7\4-4-4/5-5-4\2\0----------------------9(\7)----9\7--(7)/9\7-(2)/4\2-0-2--- G--------------------2/4---------------/7------5/7--------------------------- C-------------------0-----0-4-0-4\2-0----------------0----------------------- G---------------------------------------------------------------------------- C---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Im not sure about this, but it's pretty much the same in synch with the CD. C----------------------------------------------/12-12-12-12------- C-12\9\7--------9---------------------7-7/9-9--/12-12-12-12------- G--------5/7/9---9\5--2/4----------------------/12-12-12-12------- C--------------------0----0-4-0-4\2-0----------/12-12-12-12------- G----------------------------------------------------------------- C----------------------------------------------------------------- That's it. Im a bit sketchy if the second line is completely right, but sounds good with the CD. Cheers Hamish There you go, Feel free to improve on this tab if you can.
