its not 5-7 on the intro its 5-6


LemonySnicket - 2005-12-17

I don't know. The strumming is pretty much perfect, but the 5-7 (5-6) is controversial. I don't know if this is right, I don't have the song with me, but what if you changed it to 3-5.

e|--------------------
b|--------------------
g|---5-----5----5-----
d|---5-----5----5-----
a|-3----------3-------
E|-----3-5--------3-5-.... yeah and so on. I'm a lazy person. I don't wanna continue. But if you switch(foot) it to that, when the changes comes, just go up the frets to 8. Yeah. Do what you do.


LemonySnicket - 2005-12-18

wait. change the 5 on the E string to 4. my bad.

It is most definitely 5-6, listen closely. Also, there's a bit more rhythm to how the verse is played, there's sort of a jazzy beat to it, and the bass notes on the E string sound like they slide between each other occasionally.


nathanielmarvin - 2006-01-07

Ok, it's 5-6 on the intro, but then 5-7 on the verses, notice how its sounds different once he comes in singing?
