VERSES Notes: The Chord progression is A Bm7 C#m7 . Throughout the verses and the chorus, there are gaps to fill, do little licks to fill the space and look super cool. I havent out all of Jeff's little licks because half the fun is improvising them. Also, with the use different positions and inversions to set up different licks. Here are some examples: Chords and fills for A:
(finger A w/ your index barring, and use your pinky and ring finger for theallowing the chord to continue ringing)e|--------------------------|--5---5h7p5-------------------|---0----|B|-2---2h3p2----------------|--5---------5h7p5-------------|---5----|G|-2----------2h4p2---------|--6----------------6h7p6------|---6----|D|-2-----------------2h4p2--|--7---------------------------|---7----|A|-0------------------------|--0---------------------------|---0----|E|--------------------------|------------------------------|--------|
(cut the chord from ringing and pick the notes, while hitting other muted strings withpick for a slightly funkier sound)e|-----------------------------------------|B|-2---------------------------------------|G|-2---------2--4--2-----------------------|D|-2----2/4-----------4---2----------------|A|-0---(0)---------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------|
Some ideas for Bm7
(let the chord ring and use your ring finger for the hammer-ons-and-pull-offs)e|--2----------------------------------|-2-------------------------|B|--3----------------------------------|-3--3h5p3------------------|G|--2---2h4p2--------------------------|-2--------2h4p2------------|D|--4----------2-h-4--4-p-2------------|-4-------------2h4p2-------|A|--2------------------------2-/-4--4--|-2--------------------2/4--|E|-------------------------------------|---------------------------|
Or these: (for these, hit some extra strings or strum the whole chord throughout when you do the ons, for an extra chunky feel)
e|-----7------------------------------|B|-----7------------------------------|G|-----7----7--9----------------------|D|-----7----------9---7---------------|A|-----9----------------7--9--7-------|E|-----7------------------------------|
e|----2---2---2-------------------------------------|B|----3---3---3-------------------------------------|G|----2---4---4-------------------------------------|D|----4---4---2-------------------------------------|A|----2---2---2-------------------------------------|E|--------------------------------------------------|
And for C#m7, use the same licks as for the Bm7, just the chord shapes are shifted up frets. To End each chord progression, i ussualy use an octave part, shown below, to go to the starting A chord. Like this: A Bm7 They say everything can be replaced
C#m7 That every distance....e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|B|------------------------------------------------------------2----|G|------------------------------------------7------9-----\----2----|D|------------------------------------------------------------2----|A|------------------------------------------5------7------\---0----|E|-----------------------------------------------------------------| is not near.....
CHORUS Same chord progression as the verses, but with a different ending and some other as follows: (note:the first chorus has a different entrance than the other ones. Instead the chord, it uses the octave part from the intro (which is sandwiched between the $$$ signs the intro tab part above) then goes to the Bm7 chord and continues normally)

FIRST BRIDGE After the first chorus, there is a mini bridge part before the second verse begins. This not be the perfect tab of it, but it's damn close. Suggestions/comments are of course welcomed. Notes: % strum some muted strings along with the actual notes & Hold the bar shape and finger notes with ring finger, letting all the notes sustain ring)

SECOND BRIDGE After the second verse, there is another, less complicated bridge going into the third final verse. I am ashamed to admitt, I wasn't too taken with it. By which I mean it's but instead of learning it, I just made up my own thing, which is below. Sorry! It's not hard though if you want to learn it yourself, the chord shapes in this tab are a great to start. 1+2+.3..+..4+ 1+2+3+.4+.....1.+.2+3+4+1

Lyrics: They say everything can be replaced Yet every distance is not near So i remember every face Of every man who put me here I see my light come shining From the west unto the east Any day now, any day now I shall be released They say every man needs protection They say every man must fall Yet i swear i see my reflection Some place so high above this wall Standing next to me in this lonely crowd, Is a man who swears he's not to blame. All day long I hear him shout so loud Crying out that he was framed I see my light come shining From the west unto the east Any day now, any day now I shall be released.
