After the drums play the chorus 3 times it goes to the...

 This isn't perfect but I dont have time to figure it out so sorry.
If you can figure it out please correct me.

After the Bridge its the Intro again and then the chorus some more.

For one of the final chorus you only play two chords instead of five.

relientk500 - 2006-02-18

good, a little scratchy


RelientA-OK - 2006-03-18

I am a little out of it right now (t3f)=too tired to function. but I'm confuddled> HELP!


RelientA-OK - 2006-03-18

Never mind 'tis all good now! Peace Out!


+SEAL+ - 2006-08-05

Nicely done. But...after the first 9....7...6..., it's not full chords, but octaves. Instead of fretting the middle note:
9
9
7
You mute it:
9
x
7
So it would be:
9...7...6
x...x...x
7...5...4


+SEAL+ - 2006-09-17

I've just got a corrected version of that part...it goes like this:
------------------------------
------------------------------
9-7-6--9-7-6--9-7-6-7--6---6--
7-7-7--7-7-7--7-7-7-7--7-7---7
0-0-0--5-5-5--x-x-5-5--0------
--------------7-7-------------
