This is totally by ear and I encourage and welcome any corrections!
Intro: Start out with one strum of this D something (maybe a D2?) chord. Then pick eachstring, starting with the G string, and work your way upward. Listen to the song to get
the rhythm correct.
The D2? Chord
Then strum back and forth between Am and the D2 chord. Do this 3x
|e|| 55555555 55555555 |
|B|| 55555555 55555555 |
|G|| 55555555 77777777 |
|D|| 77777777 77777777 |
|A|| 77777777 55555555 |
|E|| 55555555 55555555 |
Then go to a G, and pick each string from G to the low E as you did in the intro. G
|e|| 3333333 |
|B|| 3333333 |
|G|| 4444444 |
|D|| 5555555 |
|A|| 5555555 |
|E|| 3333333 || Repeat this whole pattern (Am to D2 to G) 2x|
Chorus: Play a higher C chord on the 8th fret, as well as the F chord. Listen to
the song to hear the chord changes between the C and F.
|e|| 88888888 88888888 |
|B|| 88888888 1010101010 |
|G|| 99999999 1010101010 |
|D|| 1010101010 1010101010 |
|A|| 1010101010 88888888 |
|E|| 88888888 88888888 |
Then go to a G, but stop playing for the: "ooh-ooh" part.
|e|| 333333333 |
|B|| 333333333 |
|G|| 444444444 |
|D|| 555555555 |
|A|| 555555555 |
|E|| 333333333 |
I am guessing it's C to Am, but I may be wrong. Once again, try playing a higher
fretted C and go to the Am on the 5th fret. Play total down-strokes throughout
This bridge. Play in eighths. C Am
|e|| 88888888 55555555 |
|B|| 88888888 55555555 |
|G|| 99999999 55555555 |
|D|| 1010101010101010 77777777 |
|A|| 1010101010101010 77777777 |
|E|| 88888888 55555555 |
Then at the end of the bridge, go to a G, and give it a powerful
and quick down-stroke 3 times. Like an eighth note going "1 and 2!"
|e|| 333 |
|B|| 333 |
|G|| 444 |
|D|| 555 |
|A|| 555 |
|E|| 333 |
Then go to final verse, then mellow it a little on final chorus, then play Am to the
D2 (??) chord for a few bars, go to the G, pick it like the two other times, then end on Am.
Hope this works. It sounds and looks pretty accurate. And like I said, any corrections
are welcomed and encouraged! Thanks!
