Tabbed by: ciaran rooney

Tuning: DGCFAD

From "New Moon", disk one. It's played in D tuning (DGCFAd)

The intro is based around E major, you play the bottom string parts with your baby finger

Here's the chords: E G .. Go on parade and fade (F#m) C Hit the ceiling slow G Em Spending all your time with some girl C You'll never get to know G (F#m) c Wound up tight G Em Dressed all in white D A Some torment saint C Blowing out to drift A C D ... Leave you even if G Em You live up in your head (F#m) C Scared of every little noise G Em Someone's always breaking in accidentally C Using nothing but their voice G C Shrill and small G Em Echo down the hall D A Repeating pet names C Seeing it in your eyes A C ... You're only passing by Chorus: C#dim D D# Em . . . . . . . Go by C#dim D5 (slide to) E5 C ... Go by E G Someone's in the way (F#m) C Pretty words and inside slurs G All the things they have to say Em C To perform the work that they've rehearsed G C It's a waste of time G Em I put it behind me D A Once and for all C And let the hype decline A C .. If the problem wasn't mine Repeat chorus, finish on C Here's some of the lead guitar parts which play over the verse.

You'll need to listen to the song to figure out how these lead parts fit in with the chords as they're quite tricky Corrections welcome!
