Ending a/D G9 a/D D/F# G9 G D/F# Em Bm7 A G D/F# Em A4 D *3: SEE NOTE AT BOTTOM *1: Hit the G once (6th string) with your middle finger on the 3rd fret allowing for action with your index and ring fingers on the note pairs (1st - 3rd string): G(eb da eb f#c# eb) D/F# etc. *2: This is really a Bm7 flat 6th and very similar to the Frozen Man intro. Tabbed like this: x24035 (fret), x13x25 (finger) *3: This is virtually the same as the Intro line as described in note 1.
