Just Like Heaven Tab (ver 4) - Cure


 
Just Like Heaven Tab
--------------------------------------------------------------------------
			     JUST LIKE HEAVEN - The Cure
--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tuning: Standard
Tabbed By: Girlsplayitbetr

Note: I noticed there are already several versions of this song out there. 
The only reason why I submitted my version was because I included the 
parts that the synthesizer and keyboard play and I arranged it for the guitar.
So if you're looking to play an extra lead or two in this song, 
then you may find this tab helpful. 

Intro: (After the 2 measures the bass and drums play by themselves, guitar 1
comes in with this)
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-4--4--4-4------------5--5--5-5--9--9--9-9------------------------------|
E|------------4-4--4-4----------------------------------------------------|

Then Guitar 2 comes in, strumming these chords:
e|-0--0--0-0--0-0--0-0-------------2--2--2-2------------------------------|
B|-2--2--2-2--0-0--0-0--3--3--3-3--3--3--3-3------------------------------|
G|-2--2--2-2--1-1--1-1--4--4--4-4--2--2--2-2------------------------------|
D|-2--2--2-2--2-2--2-2--4--4--4-4--0--0--0-0------------------------------|
A|-0--0--0-0--2-2--2-2--2--2--2-2-----------------------------------------|
E|------------0-0--0-0--0--0--0-0-----------------------------------------|
     A          E         Bm           D 


The the synthesizer comes in:
  (Synth. arranged for guitar)
e|-5--4---------------|--------------------5--4---------------------------|
B|------5-3--2-3-5----|-2-3-5-------2-3-5-------5-3--2-3-5-------2-3-5----|
G|-----------------2--|-------2----------------------------2-----------2--|
D|--------------------|---------------------------------------------------|
A|--------------------|---------------------------------------------------|
E|--------------------|---------------------------------------------------|

Notice I have a bar ^^^^ running through the "staff" above. Guitar 1 starts
playing the passage or lead tabbed below once the synthesizer reaches the bar.
The synthesizer does continue to play beyond the bar. The bar is just there
to signify when the lead starts. Most of this lead is based on the A major 
scale, so just think of it as running half-way through the A major scale, backwards.

 Passage (Guitar 1):
e|-9-9-9-7-7-5--4-4-4-----------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------7-7-5-----------------------------------------------|
G|--------------------------7-7--6-7-6-------4-4-----------(REPEAT)-------|
D|-------------------------------------7-7-7-----7------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

 After repeating the first part, the lead goes on to do this:
e|-----------------------------------4-4-4-5-5-5-7-7-9-9-9-10-10-10-------|
B|-------------------------5-5-5-7-7--------------------------------------|
G|-------4-4-4-6-6-7-7-7--------------------------------------------------|
D|-7-7-7------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

               
e|-12-12-12-10-10-10-10-9-9-9-7-7-5--4-4-4--------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------7-7-5--------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------7-7--6-7-6-------4-4-----|
D|----------------------------------------------------------7-7-7-----7---|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|

For the verses, use the same chords played in the intro. (A E Bm D)


Chorus 1:
Guitars 1 & 2:
e|-2--2-2-2---3--3-3-3---2--2-2-2---3--3-3-3---2--2-2-2---3--3-3-3--------|

      F#         G          F#         G          F#         G

e|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2----------------------------------------|
B|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3----------------------------------------|
G|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2----------------------------------------|

A|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------|
                 D

*Note* Barred chords can be substituted for open chords. I just thought 
bar chords can give the chorus a fuller sound. Do whatever floats your boat.



  Chorus 1: (Synth. arranged for guitar)

I tried to be as thorough as possible. I left a few minor details out. 
But this song is pretty simple, so I'm sure you can figure those minor
details out.
I probably made a mistake, so corrections 
or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

About the artist behind Just Like Heaven Tab:

The Cure are an English rock band that formed in Crawley, Sussex in 1976. The band have experienced several lineup changes, with frontman, guitarist and main songwriter Robert Smith—known for his iconic wild hair, pale complexion, smudged lipstick and frequently gloomy and introspective lyrics—being the only constant member.

The members of The Cure first started releasing music in the late 1970s. Their first album, Three Imaginary Boys (1979), and early singles placed them as part of the post-punk and New Wave movements that had sprung up in the wake of the punk rock revolution in the United Kingdom. During the early 1980s the band's increasingly dark and tormented music helped form the gothic rock genre. After the release of 1982's Pornography, the band's future was uncertain and frontman Robert Smith was keen to move past the gloomy reputation his band had cultivated. With the 1982 single "Let's Go to Bed" Smith began to inject more of a pop sensibility into the band's music. The Cure's popularity increased as the decade wore on, especially in the United States, where the songs "Just Like Heaven", "Lovesong" and "Friday I'm in Love" entered the Billboard Top 40 charts. By the start of the 1990s, The Cure were one of the most popular alternative rock bands in the world and have sold an estimated 27 million albums as of 2004.[1] As of 2007, The Cure have released twelve studio albums and over thirty singles, with a thirteenth album due in September 2008.
