Send corrections, comments, etc. to:
Standard tuned 6-string acoustic
Capo 2

Verse riff: (relative to capo)


Chorus I, II Progression:

Am7   C    G    D2add6-D (2x) then tap w/ mute
             (quick hammer-off)

Chorus III Progression:

     Am               D2-C      D D2 D  (2x)
(Start w/ up strum)(no hammers)


INTRO: Verse progession 2 1/2 times

VERSE: (enter verse mid-riff once [6th note in])

Don't think you can stop it now
I'd like to see you try somehow
Realize that it puts it all on you
There's nothing you can do

      Am7                  C
Right now you're sick and tired
                G                  D2add6-D
You're feeling sad, you're feeling uninspired
         Am7                  C
And the clock just won't slow down
                   G           D2add6-D
Like it gets its kicks pushing you around (tap/mute starts here)

You around...

VERSE: (same method as above)

Maybe in the morning in won't be
Quite as bad as it seems


But the fact that you can't change 
The speed of sound, the rate of ages
An understatement to the state of mind
You're not used to (tap/mute)
Used to...


Am       D2-C
      You'd be
     D         D2   D
Forever known
        Am              D2 - C
As the boy who stopped the world
      D         D2    D
And made his own

VERSE: (same as others)

Right now you're sick and tired
You're feeling sad, you're feeling uninspired
So I pray for you my friend
That you'll fall down, you'll give in
You'll give in...

Repeat this progression 4 times

That's it.  The chords I used are right below this. -Pete 


  Am7   C    D    D2 D2add6 Am    G

Great job, just remember that every other time on the verse, you don't play the last 0h2 0 on the G string. I'm not going to try and fix the last verse (right now you're sick and tired) because that seems to me like a mixture of strums and individual note hits, so I suppose you can play it as a chorus or as the verse.
good job again,
