This is based on the live version of the song, from the 'Alive ...'
release. There are quite a few differences with the original recording -
the chords for the verse have been spiced up a bit, and there are a couple
of new changes thrown in as well. In the chorus, the new version uses
nearly all Gmaj7 and F#m7 chords - the original used Aadd2 chords as
well. But - if you play these chords along with the original track,
most of them should work OK.


For the chorus sequence (which is repeated several times for the solos)
there are only two basic chords - Gmaj7, and F#m7. I've listed the chord
shapes at the end, and I've written out some alternatives for these two
chords. For example, you could play D/G and F#m11 and it will work fine.
Choose the shapes you prefer for these two chords, or mix and match all
the different possible shapes.


/ indicates another beat on the same chord. This does not indicate the
strumming pattern
it just shows roughly how long you stick with each chord. Listen to the
track to get the strumming patterns - as a rough guide, for the verses you
change
to each chord just before the beat. For the choruses you play more on the
beat, with a triplet feel.

VERSE 1: -------- The way I've written the words under the chords here is only an approximation of the way it actually sounds on the live version. Donald really rushes through some of the lines - so I've put the chord changes to correspond more closely with the changes in the original version.

Sample, ouble pitch and double frequency enables Aidiomaster to playback he original sample at half the speed but with original pitch.
