Something Special For The Ladies

Postby Hurley107 » Mon Aug 20, 2007 9:26 pm

a great song by the guys but why the hell is there no tabs for it. the one on ultimate-guitar.com sucks they totally butchered it. someone please make a tab of the song!!! they play it on the conan o brien show, you can get the whole episode off of bitorrent pretty quickly and youll see that it doesnt looks like terribly hard song. i need a tab please!!!! :rolleyes:

Because its not a song that most people are familiar with and until recently no one had a clip of them performing it live to study the possible tabs?

Just a guess :roll:

Maybe not clearly enough to work out tabs from it. It's not been one of the more well known songs of theirs until recently.

No idea if or when tabs will turn up for it.

i think i might have it figured out. Pieced together from various other tabs and my own attempt.

play this for the beginning bit. Alternate between these chords.

Code: Select all

|--6--2
|--6--2
|--7--3
|--6--4
|--8--4
|--6--2


Then when it changes to "all the ladies in the world i wanna get next to you..."

Code: Select all

|--8---6--7
|--9---7--7
|--8---6--8
|--10--8--7
|--8---6--9
|---------7


Then when it goes to "blondes not bombs..."

Play an F chord.

thats all i have at the moment. hopefully it helps.

thats a great start. goodjob dude. the first two chords dont sound right to me though but yeah. someone go to torrentspy lookup flight of the conchorsd and find the conan o brien episode where they sing this song. its a good example to go off of. but i suck at trying to find out what chords theyre playing.

wait nevermind the first two chords are right i see it now.
yeah the other tabs to this song didnt make sense they were like

Intro/Verse:
e|-------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x----|
B|-----6-x--6--6--x------6-x--6--6--x------2-x--2--2--x------4-x--4--4--x----|
G|-----6-x--6--6--x------6-x--6--6--x------3-x--3--3--x------2-x--2--2--x----|
D|-------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x----|
A|-------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x---2----x--2-----x----|
E|--6----x--6-----x---6----x--6-----x---2----x--2-----x--------x--------x----|

Sometimes Bret changes it up and plays this(not a big difference):
e|-------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x----|
B|-----6-x--6--6--x------6-x--6--6--x------2-x--2--2--x------7-x--7--7--x----|
G|-----6-x--6--6--x------6-x--6--6--x------3-x--3--3--x------8-x--8--8--x----|
D|-------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x----|
A|-------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x--------x----|
E|--6----x--6-----x---6----x--6-----x---2----x--2-----x---7----x--7-----x----|

i dont even know how you could play that its totally unclear. but yours is alot better. hey um if its alright with you can i post your tab on ultimate guitar thats if your not already planning to.

ost Chorus: Same pattern, with the chords F, E, <b>G#, Am7?(686666)</b>

g#? A major 7?

Tab for Something Special

Postby chotzi » Thu Aug 23, 2007 3:27 am

As soon as I saw this show, I knew I had to learn this song! I'm not great at tabbing, but here are the chords.

First couple verses.
Bbm7 Gbmaj7 B7&9

Fingering: E A D G B E
Bbm7 ...... 6 8 6 6 6 6 Like a simple Em7 barred at 6th fret

Gbmaj7 ... 9 9 8 6 6 6 Like a Cmaj7 barred at the 6th fret

B7 & 9 ..... 2 2 1 2 2 2 Like a simple B7 but bar the G, B, E strings with ring finger

For the Bridge
Fm Ebm Ab

For the break
F7, E7, Ab7th ? B7&9

Hope this helps!
