chorus: ------- this is the first part with distortion the chorus is quite easy is just two chords, these are the chords on the chorus: B-A-B-A-B-A-B-G (then comes solo) (behind the chords for the chorus, another guitar picks out the chords as another one strums the chords) solo part: ---------- behind the solo, he plays these chords (A-G) but you could also play (B-A) whatever you choose is fine.......
E |-------------------------------------------------------------------|B |--------------------------------------------------------12-12--10--|G |--11-11--9---11--11--9-----------------------11-11--9--------------|D |--------------------------9-9--6---9--9--6-------------------------|A |-------------------------------------------------------------------|E |-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E |-------------------------------------|B |-------------------------------------|G |--------------------------9--11---9--|D |--9-9--6---9--9--6----6s9---------9--|A |-------------------------------------|E |-------------------------------------|
after the solo (which there is only one) comes parts 2 and parts 3 alternating back and forth for a while..........then everything is basically combined you play the alternatina B-A riff over the first parts this part is the only cryptic part of the song, there doesn't seem to be a pattren in this part, the below part is played three times somtimes, or two times sometimes, or even one time....i will try my best to explain it
listen to see how many times you play this partE |---------------------|B |---------------------|G |--11-13-13-13-13-13--| while playing this part, another guitaristD |---------------------| (and the bassist) plays a B-chord (or note)A |--9--11-11-11-11-11--| behind this partE |--0--0--0--0--0--0---|
this is always played once after the aboveE |---------------------------------------|B |---------------------------------------|G |--11-13-13--11-11--9--11-11--11-11--9--| for the first three strumsD |---------------------------------------| it is a B-Chord, then anA |--9--11-11--9--9---7--9--9---9--9---7--| A-chord is playedE |--0--0--0---0--0---0--0--0---0--0---0--| (B-chord) ( play an A-chord )
