Instead of the ending of the PRE-CHORUS being:
eb ----0----
Bb ----0----
Gb ----3----
Db ----3----
Ab ----1----
Eb ----0----

It should actually be
eb ----0----
Bb ----0----
Gb ----4----
Db ----4---- (Muting this string works too.)
Ab ----2----
Eb ----0----

How do you play G5?


Falcon-fever777 - 2006-07-30

G5 is
DI-5
AI-5
EI-3
but that is in standard tuning. move it up a half step in Eb tuning


Falcon-fever777 - 2006-07-30

or the way the tabber transcribed it is G5. to make 5 chords just take the root and the perfect fifth interval (also the octave to make it sound more full) and you can play a 5 chord. They are mainly played on the G,D,A,E strings and are considered power chords. So I hope that helps if you got any questions about 5 chords. go fishin' ><>
