Hey I know this may not be the best forum for this but I cannot for the life of me find a tab or chords for What Sin Replaces Love by Ryan Adams. If anyone could point me in the right direction It would be much appreciated!

yeah I only see lyrics available online. If I get stuck on learning a song, it's pretty easy to grab a guitar tuner and flip it on while playing the melody and chords to get letter names, then I would jot them down with printed lyrics so I'd remember what I discovered. no i will not do this for you :lol: good luck. I've got a few friends that really like his stuff

edit to add:
or to write it in Tab form I would break it down into small, manageable parts, one part at a time (knowing I might not get the whole song at first try) and write it like this:


you know how tabs work: you jot down the number of the fret you're fingering, and which string

third way with less mental input and lots of feeling, play by ear over and over

Thank you kind stranger, it took me a while to find a decent video to see what they were doing. Still working on it but I'll throw it up online once I do for other Adams fans.
