Incubus – The Original tab

INCUBUS - THE ORIGINAL
From the album 'If not now, when?'

Fantastic alternative-pop song from an incredibly innovative rock band, really wanted to 
pick this piece apart, so I'm sharing the tab with you.

Opening electric guitar theme (repeated) This is way I think Mike will have played it, 
he seems to love these hand-spanning chords.

A1

(After playing that 5 times, play this part below, for the final, sixth time of the introduction)

Continue to play the above before Brandon's vocals kick in, that is: A1 X3 A2 X1 This theme reoccurs over the chord progression many times throughout the verse, there are variations on the theme in terms of entry, I won't patronise you by noting that here. Piano Chord progression - I did the whole thing with lyrics, because people are kind of romantic like that..
