You can do the A on the next string up with an 2 chord, but I find this way easier. Most other chords, you can use full bar chords except the Bridge. Just keep playing the pattern over each line until you reach a new chord. Step 2: Find a really good bassist to play with you. Intro: F#5 A5 F#5 E5 (4x) Verse
F#5 A5 F#5 E5Well Ya know that I want your loving,
but my logic tells me that it aint never gonna happen, and then my defense is to say I didn't want it anyway, but you know sometimes I'm a liar.
B A Could you ever want me to love you?
B ACould you ever want me to care?
F#5 A5 F#5 E5Disregard my nervousness,
please ignore my vacant stares, Chorus
B A'cause just what I've been through,
Gis nothing like where I'm going to.
F# A F# EGive me some sign to pursue,
a promise,
Band you're unhappy.
N.C....This is only a guess...
F#5 A5 F#5 E5(2x) Verse 2
F#5 A5 F#5 E5(guitar silent at first slowly fades in over similar bass line)
Do you know what it's like to hate when it's way down deep inside? Oh god, I hate what's been done to my life. I could rule the pain, I could rule the night, or would I ruin my salvation, ruin my mind. Rule your pains, rules of the night, ruin your salvation, ruin your miiiiiiiiiiiiiii..... iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii.... iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiind. Bridge:
F#5 C#5 A B5 N.C.Da da ba da ba bop bop ba da da
(3X)
F#5 C#5 A B5 N.C.Da da ba da ba bop bop ba da da
(For the A, I just play the open A string instead of the chord) Play full F# bar chord here once and let ring oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo 2,3,4! Third Verse (same as the first, stammer it out a little too.)
F#5 A5 F#5 E5Y'know that I want your loving,
but then Mr. Logic, Mr. Logic tells me that it aint never gonna happen, and then my defense is to say I didn't, I didn't want it anyway, but you know sometimes I'm a liar.
B A Could you ever want me to love you?
B ACould you ever want me to care?
F#5 A5 F#5 E5Disregard my nervousness,
please ignore my vacant stares,
B A'cause just what I've been through,
Gis nothing like where I'm going to.
F# A F# EGive me some sign to pursue,
a promise, a promise,
Band you're unhappy,
and you're unhappy, and you're unhappy, and you're unhappy. N.C. This is only a guess And that's it. This is my first tab, let me know how you like it.
