solo...   3mins 4secs
music halts on an A minor chord, then the guitar and the drums and all come back in over 
chorus chords (the E and the Dbm).  its acutally two guitars.  one does the low bit you 
only just hear, the other does all the fancy stuff.

1st guittar
 Am                        E               Dbm

(1st guitar becomes inaudible (i expect it does the something along the lines of the 
guitar, but an octave lower))

2nd guitar (something like...)

I'm tabbing this on an acoustic, so not sure how accurate the above is.  the solo is (in 
opinion) pretty much erroneous anyway.  it doesn't seem to add anything really.  and i 
it for you anyway.  i think the chord structure is really nice in this song, and its a
shame you can't realy hear it or get a feel for it on the record.  it sounds really nice
on an acoustic though.

anyway, its pretty easy to make it sound nice if you play around with barred chords and 
them in different places and stuff.  i think the album version is over produced, but 
a really nice song there under all the flowery stuff.
