NOTES: I was sick and tired of seeing versions of this song that were so wrong

it almost seems like the people tabbing it out weren't evening listening

to it. I hope you find this tab a little more useful.

 

 

Intro

 

Clean tuning

 

e----------------------|

B----------------------| You'll have to figure out

G----------------------| the strumming. It's

D--7-------11--------9-| fairly simple.

A--4--------9--------7-|

D--x--------0--------x-|

 

End Intro

 

 

Pre-Chorus (0:40)

 

e----------------------------| You have a little

B----------------------------| freedom here. Just

G----------------------------| listen to the song

D--7--xxx--7--xxx--7-xxx--7--| for the combination

A--0--xxx--0--xxx--0-xxx--0--| of strumming that

D--0--xxx--0--xxx--0-xxx--0--| sounds good to you.

 

End Pre-Chorus

 

 

Chorus (0:45)

 

e--------------------------------|

B--------------------------------| You can strum these chords

G-----------------------6------7-| or just hit them once and

D--7------2------4------6------7-| let it ring.

A--7------2------4------4------5-|

D--7------2------4---------------|

 

End Chorus

B--------------------| Just play the 7 over

G--------------------| and over again with

D--------------------| a little delay and strum

A--7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-| quieter as you go.

D--------------------|

 

 

e---------------|

B--------7------| Bend the 9 so it sound like

G--------9b11r9-| an 11, but do not bend the 7

Well, that's the whole song. I hope I explained everything clearly enough.

It's not incredibly hard to play. There's a few tricky parts, but just listen

to the song and you'll get it. If anybody has any comments, questions, problems,

complaints, corrections or otherwise please feel free to e-mail me at the address

above.
