Losing My Religion Mandolin Tab - R.E.M.


 
Losing My Religion Mandolin Tab
Losing My Religion Mandolin Tab by R.E.M.
Tabbed by Mike Shaheen

I spent hours watching live videos and tutorials to put this together.
This is very detailed and will take you through every step of the song.
I did my best to make this 110% accurate.
This looks complicated but it's the first mandolin song I learned
and really easy once you get ahold of the strumming.
The type of chords used require minimal finger movement.

Key:
First row is chords, second row is strum pattern, below those are the chord diagrams and tabs
D downstrum
U upstrum
lowercase (x) muted chuck
(/) slide up

Chords used:
  F   Am  G   Dm  Em/B or Em 3 finger, which is fuller and more accurate, but harder to use.

Verse: PAY CLOSE ATTENTION TO THESE (you will make slight finger adjustments, but it's really easy).

The rest of the song follows this order
(Bridge)
-Verse-
Chorus
(Bridge)
-Verse-
(Bridge)
-Verse-
Chorus

Then the Solo:
e-----------------------------------------|
a=3/7=7=7===5=5=5=5=5===3=3=3===0=0=0=0=0=|

e---------------------------------------|
a=7=7=7===5=5=5=5=5===3=3=3===0=0=0=0=0=|

e---------------------------------------|
a=7=7=7===5=5=5=5=5===3=3=3===0=0=0=0=0=|

e---------------------------------0-----|
a=7=7=7===5=5=5=5=5===3=3=3===0=5===5=0=|

-Verse-
Chorus x2 (play the full Am staff and skip the G, starting over at F.
-Sounds confusing but it's the chorus repeated twice at the end of the song,
so listen if you get stuck)
(Bridge)

Outro: When performed live, the last 7 in each measure is replaced with a 5.
Easier to count & sounds better
e-----------------|
a=7=7=7=7=7=7=7=7=|

Play that 7 times, then

Run:
e-------------------|
a=7=5=3=0=5=3=0=3=0=|

One last note, if you want a fuller sound on the gap in the chorus, you may replace
the open e with the 7th fret on the A string |a=5=7=5=0|
