You're older than you've ever been

You're older than you've ever been
And now you're even older
And now you're older still

This section tabbed by AnaNgInASpaceSuit (and revised by chriscost0318):

  If you want to play the guitar and bass parts on a keyboard and you can't read a guitar tab (you probably should learn them anyways but just in case) this is the thing for you. 
  The notes are listed with a number after them, that number is the octave number, with C4 being 'middle C'.

   Guitar:

   A3 D4 D4 E4 E4 F4 G4 A4 F4 G4 G4 A4 A4 Bb4 A4 - G4 F4 F4 G4 G4 A4 G4 - F4 E4 E4 F4 F4 G4 F4 - E4 D4 D4 E4 E4 F4 G4 A4 F4 G4 G4 A4 A4 Bb4 A4 - G4 F4 - F4 - E4 - E4 - D4 :]

   Bass (Played with Guitar):

   D3 - E3 E3 F3 G3 D4 A3 D4 D4 E4 C#4 D4 D4 E4 E4 F4 E4 - D4 C#4 C#4 D4 D4 E4 D4 - C#4 B3 B3 C#4 A3 D3 - E3 E3 F3 G3 D4 A3 D4 D4 E4 C#4 D4 D4 E4 E4 F4 E4 - D4 C#4 - A3 - D3

Alternate method (I’ve heard this way played by John Linnell on the accordion a few times)

D3 - E3 A4 A4 B4 B4 C#4 D4 E4 C#4 D4 D4 E4 E4 F4 E4 - D4 C#4 C#4 D4 D4 E4 D4 - D4 C#4 C#4 D4 A4 D3- E4 A4 A4 B4 B4 C#4 D4 E4 C#4 D4 D4 E4 E4 F4 E4- E4 D4 A4 D3
   
Synths:

 Bb4 - G4 A4 Bb4 A4 - G4 F4 - F4 E4 D4 A4
