This is an Audioslave song that sounds great on solo acoustic as well. The strumming pattern is fairly easy to pick up and is really distinctive from listening to the song - I don't know how to describe it and i'm sure someone else here can do a better job than me. The chords are also very easy for beginners. Give it a whirl!

[Intro]
| E | A | 2x

[Verse]
E A
I walk the streets of Japan till I get lost
E A
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
E A
With a graveyard tan carrying a cross
E A
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
E A
I like studying faces in a parking lot
E A
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
E A
I like driving backwards in the fog
E A
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

[Chorus]
E D A Em
The things that I've loved the things that I've lost
E D A Em
The things I've held sacred that I've dropped
E D A Em
I won't lie no more you can bet
E D A E
I don't want to learn what I'll need to forget

[Verse]
E A
I like gypsy moths and radio talk
E A
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
E A
I like gospel music and canned applause
E A
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
E A
I like colourful clothing in the sun
E A
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
E A
I ilke hammering nails and speaking in tongues
E A
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything

[Chorus]

[Bridge]
Dm
Bend and shape me
C
I love the way you are
A Am
Slow and sweetly
G E
Like never before
Dm
Calm and sleeping
C
We won't stir up the past
A Am
So discretely
G E
We won't look back

[Solo] (this is a fast electric solo on the original song. Dont' know what to do here for solo acoustic..)

[Chorus]

[Verse]
E A
I like throwing my voice and breaking guitars
E A
Cause it doesn't remind me of anything
E A
I like playing in the sand what's mine is ours
E A E
If it doesn't remind me of anything

Awesome Tab that you got there. Love this song, ever since I saw it on AOL sessions.

Thanks for the tab, Tabmow.

Thank you for this one! Could someone throw out a good starting suggestion on the strumming pattern? I think I have it until I hit the chorus, then it baffles me. Any help is appreciated.

I just took real estate in your mind.

Goto this site and you can see the video yourself.

http://music.aol.com/archive/main.adp?category=sessions

select Audioslave, then it will show a list of videos to view. Choose "Doesn't Remind" - Acoustic wait for it to load and then click onto full screen.

You can see his strumming pattern and style for pretty much the whole song.

There is also several people covering it on acoustic on youtube which can help with the strumming pattern as well

This song is also tabbed out in the summer 2006 issue of "Play Guitar!" magazine.
They suggest a strumming pattern of:

Verse & bridge
E A E
1&2&3&4& 1&2&3&4&
DUDU UDU DUDU UDU

Chorus
E D A E
1&2&3&4& 1&2&3&4&
D D D D D DU UD


I hope I read and transcribed that correctly.

Also remember on the last line it's (A) an (A) y (E) thing. Hit the lowest part of the chord on the first A and the higher stings on the next finishing on a full open E strum let ring out. Nice YouTube video, too. Interesting to watch that acoustic version.
