Welcome to the Double Dare UK tabs pages. We are actually a live pub band performing around Horsham, Sussex, but I have published some of my 600 song tabs on this site for sharing amongst the music community. If you want to copy tabs, simply cut and paste the words off the page and straight into WORD or NOTEPAD. I have worked carefully on many of these TABS to make sure that the chords are shown directly over the words, so the chord change corresponds exactly to the place where you are singing. That means you can play the whole songs straight off the paperwork without having to think about the structure of the song at all. I hope you enjoy these CHORDS, and please check out the many more we have on the SONGS page. Check out my band on the rest of the website too if you are interested...

       down by the sea

       Chorus:

       we're going to be

       ooh, ooh

       B                               C                                  

       here       I           go -     oh______

 

 

       Bridge:

       NOTE: at this point the picking pattern changes a bit...

       throw in this bit every couple of measures just for color..

 

           C                C

       (e)-----------------------------------------------

       (B)-------6-----5----------6-----5----------------

       (G)-----5---5-----5------5---5-----5--------------

       (D)---5-------5--------5-------5------------------

       (A)-3----------------3----------------------------

       (E)-----------------------------------------------

 

       Break:  C            x8 times

 

       C                               C                               

                                       all___     my___       sea___

       C                               C                                 

                                       all___     my___       blue___

 

 

       play the and sing the above 4 measures about 6 times and then try

       to find a stylish way to end the song.

       (you'll look silly trying to fade out like the song does)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

*****Picking:

Dave Gavurin uses slighly different picking patterns throughout

the song, I've chosen the following one, it seems to work nicely.

(shown for the B and G chords)

 

         B                      G(add C)

        ----------------------------------------------------------

        -------4-----4--------------------------------------------

        -----4---4-----4--------------5-----5---------------------

        ---4-------4----------------5---5-----5-------------------

        -2------------------------5-------5-----------------------

        ------------------------3---------------------------------

fingers: T 1 2 3 2 1 3 2

 

T = Thumb (bass note of the chord)

1 = first finger

2 = second finger

3 = third finger

(of course, you can use a flatpick if you like)

 

*****Chords:

along with some chords i suggest some alternates to maximize the

use of open strings (and reduce hand fatigue)

 

  B     C   C     Bb    G(add C) G(add C)     F

           alt.                    alt.
