e--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|B---0---0---0---0---1---1---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3----------------|G--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------------|D-------------------------0---0--------------------------------------------------|A-----------------3---3-------------------3---3----------------------------------|E-3---3---3---3-------------------0---0-----------3---3---3---3------------------|
Here's where things get a bit tricky, because the tabs for these sections are very similar, but not quite the same. For the following lines: (And I will never.../And you won't read.../never thought I could.../I don't know where...) Play:
e--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|B---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3--------------------------------|G--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-------------------------------|D-------------------------0---0--------------------------------------------------|A-3---3---2---2---0---0----------------------------------------------------------|E---------------------------------3---3---3---3----------------------------------|
But for the lines: (A movie queen.../And if you read between...) Play:
e--------------------------------------------------------------------------------|B---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3---3----------------|G--0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-2-2-2-2-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0---------------|D-------------------------0---0--------------------------------------------------|A-3---3---2---2---0---0-------------------3---3----------------------------------|E---------------------------------0---0-----------3---3---3---3------------------|
