    "Not Enough" from Several Shades of Why 
    by J Mascis
    
    Capo 2
    
    A
    
                   A
    She was gone again
                 G                   D
    And I'm not sure what I knew
             A
    But I looked again
                 G                     D  
    And the truth gave me a clue
                  A
    Said my love
                      G                  D
    Why was it not enough to keep
                A
    And it's tough
              G                   D
    And I can't accept defeat
    
             Em                                                 G
    And I know in my mind, I know I should be grateful
                Em                                    G
    But it's hard for me, I'm done so easily
    
          A
    Can we be loved, can we be free
           G                                                D  *(w/fill 2x)
    Can we be all these things you said to me
    
    *fill

           A
    Can we be loved, can we explain
           G                                                  D  *(w/fill 2x)
    Can we be all these things and hold the pain
            A                      G
    Can we be loved, can we be free
            A                  G
    Can we go on, can we not see
                  Em                                         G
    'Cause I know myself and I can't take it easy
               Em                                           G
    And it can't be good if I'm the one who's mean
    
    And we were off again
    And I just could not believe
    It took so long again
    I should've known, I should've seen
    
    Said my love
    That was the only way to be
    Not enough
    Then the future came to me
    
    And I know in my mind
    I'm outta time, it's over
    And I'll leave him here
    Is there no way to show her
    
    Can we be loved, can we be free
    Can we be all these things you said to me
    Can we be loved, can we explain
    Can we be all these things and hold the pain
    
    Can we be loved, can we be free
    Can we go on, can we not see
    
    Said my love
    That was the only way to be
    Not enough
    And I can't believe it's me
    
    And I know my love, and I know my love is over
    And I wish I did, I wish I didn't know

    Nice work!
    I tweaked the css to make it style a little tighter. I had a little too much line height going on.

    Thanks!!! (I couldn’t pull up the editor. Could be a problem on my end)

    It was on my end – I needed to tighten up the line height

    How about this?I’m not much of a tabmaker but this sounds pretty good to me.T

    Too Deep
    Capo 4
    C/Am(or 01020X)/F/G
    All the way through.
    
    08 TOO DEEP
    ---------------------------------------------------
             C     Am
    I saw You
             C     Am
    I saw You
             F               G
    I saw everything emotion
              F                    G
    I saw why it's left unspoken
    
    I crawled out
    I crawled out
    I'll do better than the last time
    Got so much more than my mind
    I saw You
    
    I saw You
    I saw You
    I know why I went to see it
    Still not sure what I believe in
    
    I walked in
    I walked in
    Is this the time I'll understand
    will it pass right through my hand
    'till I see You
    
    Said I'm the one how knows
    Said I'm the one how knows
    Please don't speak of it no more
    been left out starting to show
    
    I just stared but not a peep
    You walked by it gets too deep
    Turn me stick in to my soul
    hasn't changed much getting old
    
    I saw You
    I saw You
    I saw You

    Pretty much the same as yours, mind_glow, just different positions…

    Very Nervous and Love
    Just two parts to the song, they vary slightly throughout, but this is the gist of it…

    I think I’ve worked out the intro riff to Several Shades of Why, if anyone’s interested.

    Capo 7th Fret
    
     Cadd9       G/B?        Am                   G/B?

    ---------^---------^----------------------------------------------
     |-3-| |-3-| |-3-| |-3-|

    The bassline is slightly different the second and third time, it changes where the carrots are.

    I’m pretty bad at identifying chords so many someone else can figure out what’s played during the verse.

    I was able to work out the intro riff for Several Shades of Why and a couple of chords for the verse. Anybody know the chords used in verse?

    I play it almost the same way

    But I leave the e-string open all the way.
    And keep my little finger on the 3rd freth b-string.

    Don’t know the real names but something like this:
    G: 320030
    D/F#:? 200030
    C: x32030
    D: xx0230

    C: x32030
    G/B: x20030
    Am: x02230
    Em: 022030

    yeah i think that’s probably more like it, mind_glow. i transcribed the chords by ear alone, haven’t actually tried to play it on guitar yet, that open E sounds right.
