After the second verse follows the chorus again. The sequence for the chorus is again: |F |F |Eb |Eb |Bb |Bb |F |F | |F |F |Eb |Eb |Bb |Bb |F |F | |F |F |Eb |Eb |Bb |Bb |Bb F Bb|F Bb F| Francis' backing part is almost the same as the first chorus so I'm not going to write that down again. But after this sequence, the next sequence is played repeatedly: |F |F |Eb |Eb |Bb |Bb |F |F | and during the fourth time the song is faded out. But there are some major differences here: The last bar of the first time of the sequence:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + E|----------------|B|----------------|G|----------------| D|----1-1-1-------| A|1-3-------3-1---| E|--------------4-|
The last bar of the second time: 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + You have to bend these six E|------------------|
quavers very slowly. Position B|3b3b3b4b4b4-4r3-1-| your finger before the third G|------------------|fret of the b-string, and D|------------------|play six quavers. You're doing A|------------------|it right when you've reached E|------------------|the pitch of the note on thefourth position at the same timethat you're playing the sixth quaver. Or just ignorewhat I've just said and listen to the record (CD-time 3:24 - 3:25)
The last three bars of the third time:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + Same story as above but E|------------------6-----|this time you bend from B|8-8-8-8-9-9-9-9-9---9r8-|the eight position to G|------------------------|the pitch of the ninth D|------------------------|in 8 semiquavers. A|------------------------|(CD-time 3:32 - 3:37) E|------------------------|
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +E|------------------|--------------------|B|------------------|----3b4-3-3b4-4-3-1-|G|0h1---1---1---3---|--------------------|D|----3---3---3-----|--------------------|A|------------------|--------------------|E|------------------|--------------------|
The fourth sequence from the start:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +E|----------------|------------------|B|----------------|------------------|G|--1-------------|----1---3p1---1---|D|3---3-----------|--3---3-----3---3-|A|----------------|------------------|E|----------------|------------------|

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 +E|------------------|----------------|B|------------------|----------------|G|----3p1---1---1---|----------------| And this is really the last D|--3-----3---3---3-|1-------1---1-3-| note I can hear. But sinceA|------------------|--3-1-----3-----| it is the tonic, it's a goodE|------------------|------4---------| end.
Rick's part: ============ Rick is playing the rhythm part palm muted throughout the song. Intro and Chorus: Chord sequence: |F |F |Eb |Eb |Bb |Bb |F |F | Each chord is played during 2 bars. Rick plays the following rhyhtm. I will only give two bars. I've given the chords under "Chords and rhythm".
1 + + + 2 + + + 3 + + + 4 + + + 1 + + + 2 + + + 3 + + + 4 + + +E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|B|10--10--10--10------10--10------|10--101010--10--10------10------|G|10--10--10--10------10--10------|10--101010--10--10------10------|D|10--10--10--10------10--10------|10--101010--10--10------10------|A|8---8---8---8-------8---8-------|8---8-8-8---8---8-------8-------|E|--------------------------------|--------------------------------|
For the intro you play the sequence two times and the second time you replace the last two bars by:
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + E|1---1-------1---|1-------1---1---|B|3---1-------3---|1-------3---1---|G|----------------|----------------|D|----------------|----------------|A|----------------|----------------|E|----------------|----------------|
Backing during the riff: Each time Francis appears with that typical riff over two bars, he's playing it four times. During the first two times, Rick's guitar is at rest (for four bars). During the second two times Rick is playing:
