you could get away with just strumming the chords (this is just an idea)x4e|(5)----5----------5---------------------------------|---7-------|--------|B|(0)------0----------0---(3)---3-------3-5-3---0-5/6-|----10-9---|--------|G|(5)-5------5----5-----5-(0)------0----------4-------|-7------10-|-7h9----|D|-7------------7----------3--3-------3---------------|-----------|----7h9-|A|----------------------------------------------------|-----------|--------|E|----------------------------------------------------|-----------|--------|
on 3rd time of this, replace this part---------------------^, with:e|---7-----------------|B|-----10-9-9-------9--|G|-7----------10-10----|D|---------------------|A|---------------------|E|---------------------|
"Folding Wormholes" the rythym is just solid strumming, so it's not that hard to figure oute|-12-|-10-|-8-|-7-|B|-10-|-10-|-9-|-9-|G|----|----|---|---|D|----|----|---|---|A|----|----|---|---|E|----|----|---|---|
this varies multiple times, but this is the structure:e|-----------------------------------------------|B|---------12-----10----------10-----------------| this is probably whatG|-9-10-12-----12-----9-10-12-----12-10--10-9----| omar playsD|--------------------------------------------12-|A|-----------------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------------|
this part also is played differently multiple times...e|-----------------------------------------|B|-------------------5-5-5-----------------|G|-------5-5-5-4-4-4-------5-5-7-7-4-4-----| and this is probably what paulD|-7-7-7-------------------------------6-6-| plays...A|-----------------------------------------|E|-----------------------------------------|
what paul plays in this section in order: x4 - regular x2 - further up on the fretboard(+2) - play it 2 frets higher x2 - regular x1 - further up(+7) x1 - further up(+5) what omar plays: x4 - regular x2 - further up(x2) x2 - regular x1 - further up(x7) x1 - further up(x5)
