Want You Gone/Tabs

Here are the base chords underlying that chorus riff: F#-G#m-A#m-B x3 - D-E to end the chorus on the "Now I only want you..." part.
Also, after the main riff that chord leading into the chorus is a C#7.
Joco plays this live in a different key (G) than on the record. On the record I think he's playing it in A.

Here are a set of chords for those who'd like to strum along instead:

A            F#m
Well here we are again
D            E
It's always such a pleasure
A        F#m
Remember when you tried
D          E
to kill me twice?
A         F#m
Oh how we laughed and laughed
D        E
Except I wasn't laughing
A         F#m
Under the circumstances
D         C#         F#
I've been shockingly nice


F# Abm           Bbm      B
   You want your freedom? Take it
F# Abm           B        C#
   That's what I'm counting on
F# Abm       Bbm      B
   I used to want you dead but

Now I only want you gone

A         F#m
She was a lot like you
D          E
(Maybe not quite as heavy)
A          F#m         D       E
Now little Caroline is in here too
A            F#m
One day they woke me up
D          E
So I could live forever
A           F#m
It's such a shame the same
D          C#        F#
will never happen to you

F# Abm           Bbm      B
   You've got your short sad life left
F# Abm           B        C#

Now I only want you gone

A          F#m
Goodbye my only friend
D           E
Oh, did you think I meant you?
A             F#m
That would be funny
      D          E
if it weren't so sad
A             F#m
Well you have been replaced
D            E
I don't need anyone now
A        F#m
When I delete you maybe
D         C#         F#
I'll stop feeling so bad

F# Abm          Bbm    B
   Go make some new disaster
F# Abm           B        C#
   That's what I'm counting on
F# Abm       Bbm      B
   You're someone else's problem
Bm         E        A   
Now I only want you gone
Bm         E        A
Now I only want you gone
D          E        
Now I only want you
A
gone


Here's a basic interpretation for the guitar that kind of imitates the electronic original: (tabbed by mackeymkay)

 And there's this little riff on the main motif before verse 2

 E|---------------------------------||---------------------------------|


 Verse 2 is the same as verse 1

 Chorus
 
 Intro/Main Motif

 Verse 3
 (the same, except you leave the second bar empty on the "Oh, did you think I meant you?")


 Final Chorus

 F#, Absus4, Bbm, B
 F#, Absus4, Bbm, B
 F#, Absus4, Bbm, B
 Bm, E, A, F#m
 Bm, E, A, F#m
 Bm, E, A

Optionally, if you're in a generous mood you can throw in Asus2/G# between the A and F#m here.

If you prefer strumming to picking, the chords to the verse are the same as those in "I'm Your Moon" (sort of), 
although you can leave the A string bass in there if you want.

Asus2, Asus2/D#, Asus2/D, Asus2/F
Asus2, Asus2/D#, Asus2/D, E
Asus2, Asus2/D#, Asus2/D, Asus2/F
Asus2, Asus2/D#, Asus2/D, C#

Or, you know, you can make it a plain A with that same walkdown. Play with it and do whatever feels right. Although I would mute the high E in any case.

Live version tabbed by suuuupaadave

The chords in the verse are mostly variations of G between diminished, suspended, and augmented. Interpret them how you'd like. In the chorus he's letting the E ring out and not strumming it as heavily as the rest of the chorus, make sure you're not strumming it too hard otherwise it could sound a little muddy.
