Solo

I am not sure if this is completely correct.
This sounds really good when played with the song. 
Guitar is tuned down 1/2 step.  - Neal.

something else, but D2 sounds good)

version 3
---------

Tim Armati 

The intention of this transcription is to provide a sort of strum along
version to "Ava Adore". The guitar doesn't play a particularly large role
in the song's sound because of the prominence of electronic sounds so
essentially this for the sake of reproducing the song whilst one has a
guitar in their hot little hands.

The song is in the tuning of E flat however my version shown here is to
be played in this tuning but with the capo at the second fret. This may
make it simpler to play as it relies more on first-position chords.


Intro:

Em~~~~~~~~G~~~Em~~~~~~~~G~~~ x2   note: listen to the song so as 
                                        to get the rhythm right


Verse: Repeat intro six times.


It's you that I adore...

Pre chorus:

D       Am            Em G  (ie. intro and verse part once)
We must never be apart

D       Am         
We must never be apart

Chorus:

G Bm C Am G

Verse 2: same as verse 1

Pre chorus 2: same as pre-chorus 1


Chorus 2:

G Bm C Am G  - twice. Then finish with Am.

Verse 3: same as verses 1 & 2

Pre Chorus: play original pre-chorus once.

Solo: The solo is played over the chorus chords played once thru. 

This is not the solo to a tea. It has one or two extra notes added in so
as to give it a bit of continuum when playing it on an acoustic guitar.
Also the tone is different as I have transcribed it on different strings
than those that are heard to be played on the actual song.


e----------0-3-5-7-10-7^5-7-5-3-3^5-12-7^5-7-5-3-3^5-7/--------------------
b------0-3-----------------------------------------------------------------
g--0-2---------------------------------------------------------------------


Chorus 3: same as chorus 2 with extra G then Am tagged on
          when Billy ends the chorus by singing 'We must never be apart'.


Outro verse: 

Intro part twice then...

(note: In this section you can hear a guitar part on the recording that
 doesn't include the playing of the G chord. Rather, it plays only Em
 leading up to the D - Am part. I have included the G so as to take into
 account the bass part which is soundind out G)

                              
Em                         G  
You'll always be my whore

Em                         G      D - Am
Cause you're the one that I adore 

Em                       G
Pull you're crooked teeth

Em                           G     D - Am
You'll be perfect just like me

Em                (note: no G chord now)
In you I feel so dirty      

D                  Am
In you I crash cars...

Repeat [Em - D - Am] until the part where Billy's voice drifts off.


Outro: Here the bass closes the song out. For the sake of this 
       transcription here is the outro as interpreted for the guitar.

g-0-0-0-0-0-X-0-0-0-0-0-- 
D-2-2-2-2-0-2-0-2-2-2-2--   for as long as your little
A-2-2-2-2-X-0-X-2-2-2-2--   heart desires I guess.
E-0-0-0-0-3-X-3-0-0-0-0--

At the end there is guitar over the "in you I feel so dirty" part 
and thats just the pre-chorus.I'm think you can figure out the lyrics
and where the chords go just by listening to the CD so this should 
cover the song pretty well.
