Chords: C (3), B, C

C (3): 3 3 5 5 5 3

B: 1 1 3 3 3 1

C: x 3 2 0 1 0

 

There are "power-chord" versions of C and B here, too, used in the

verse. I'll call it Riff 1 for the hell of it.

 

(C) (B)

Riff 1: 1 1 3 x x x slide up to 3 3 5 x x x

 

(C) (Play parentheses palm-muted, then hit the

chords and slide)

E-x------------------------------------------

B-x------------------------------------------

G-x------------------------------------------

D--3->5--------------(3)-(3)-(3)-3->5---------

A--1->3--------------(1)-(1)-(1)-1->3---------

E --1->3--------------(1)-(1)-(1)-1->3---------

 

Bridge:

 

(C) (C) (B) (C)

E----------------------------------

B--5-----5--5-5->3-3-->1----------

G-----5-----5-5->3-3---0----------

D-----------5-5->3-3-->2----------

A----------------------3----------

E---------------------------------

 

Easy, just play the barred C chord arpeggiated, hit the chord,

slide down to B, hit it twice, then quickly switch to the regular C

chord. I wish I could make it sound as simple on paper as it really is...

 

Here's the lyrics and the chords to go with them. * chords mean you

don't have to play them if you don't want to, it sounds good either way.

The album is w/out them.
