The Fall – Mansion (Tab)

The Fall – Mansion (Tab)

The History of the Fall-feit: Back in 2009 I caved to pressure to write up Jason Mraz’s I’m Yours. About an hour after that post went up I was laying unconscious on the floor with a head injury before being taken to hospital. (I’m leaving out the details in hope you’ll assume I was doing something sexy and dangerous.)

This was clearly beyond a coincidence. The only rational explanation was that the wrathful Indie Gods were displeased with me writing up a song people liked and decided I must be punished. To placate them, I had to write up tab for the most indie and least popular band in history, The Fall.

Since then I’ve been required to tab a Fall song whenever doing anything vaguely populist. There are two pop songs this week so I’m getting my Fall-feit in early. And, since it was Halloween, I went with their spooky instrumental Mansion.

    Just one Fall song for two pop songs? I hope it ‘ll work out for you :)
    Great tab.

    I LOVE THE FALL. I’m going to see them for the millionth time in a couple of weeks actually…

    I’m sure Mark’s reaction to a ukulele cover would be interesting…

    Matt: Thanks!

    Captain: I know. It’s a risk. Pray for me!

    Chris: I think this shows he’s okay with ukulele versions of his songs. Enjoy the show.

    mictoboy: I’m glad someone is keeping up!

    Apart from being great your tabs also look better than many others I have seen. This may have been asked regularly but could you tell me which software you use to write them down anyway. Thanks!

    Andreas: I use Guitar Pro 6.

    That is amazing. I can’t believe I’d never heard that before… thanks Al!
