Fifty-Mission Cap by the Tragically Hip
(from Fully Completely, 1992)
|||||||||||||||||||||||||||||
(tabbed by Duncan Koerber, e0fq...@credit.erin.utoronto.ca)

The main progression is done using slides. Use this technique on the
other progressions. (No use listing them all in tab)

E5 E5 D5 D5 C5 C5 D5 D5
e------------------------------------------------------ [repeat as needed]
B------------------------------------------------------
G---9\\\\\\--9--7\\\\\\---7--5\\\\\\---5--7\\\\\\--7---
D---9\\\\\\--9--7\\\\\\---7--5\\\\\\---5--7\\\\\\--7---
A---7\\\\\\--7--5\\\\\\---5--3\\\\\\---3--5\\\\\\--5---
E----00000000----000000000----000000000----00000000----

\\\\\=strike and then slide the chord all the way down the neck
00000=strike open E repeatedly

The Song:

- All chords are root-fifth chords (E5, D5, C5)
- \ means slide the chord down the neck (see tab above for example)
- I tried to give some indication of when the chords change
but it isn't perfect.
- After the intro Baker stops sliding the chords and just plays
them normally. Langlois slides throughout the song.
