NOTES: * The song, obviously, starts with the intro. The intro is played through a couple times and then the song goes directly into the chorus. Turning on a low-gain distortion would not be a bad idea here, because that seems to be what Tony (and probably Stephan) is using here. * The intro is the first verse, too. Just a side note. * The first verse is all chords, and then back into another chorus. * The second chorus goes straight into the bridge. This is the "I liked the way it was before" part. * The bridge goes directly into the breakdown, which is the part where Tony starts soloing over top. * The breakdown is interrupted back into another verse w/ chords. * This verse w/ chords is interrupted by Stephan's intro fingerpicking verse. * This verse finally ends and goes right back into another chorus still in normal time. * After the "I'll be your crystal baller, I will show you everything," the time changes. There is less emphasis on the 587555/x0321x chord. This is the same beat the solo is played to. Enjoy! - Tim the Tabs Guy
