          -----------------------------------------------
          This song is played with a capo on the 2nd fret.
          -----------------------------------------------
          
          Here's the next radio-friendly hit from the BNL guys. Learn it now,
          and beat the rush!
          
          This is the intro riff, which most of the verse riffs are based on.
          The chords are E major and something that sounds like an A6sus2.
          Neat chord, oddly enough used in a similar context by Poison in the hit
          "Something to Believe In." But I digress.
          
          Here is the main riff tabbed out. It'll be referred to as Main Riff
          throughout,
          mainly because seeing A6sus2 written over and over will give you a headache.
          
          E A6sus2
          e----0--0--0-0-0---0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0----|
          B----0--0--0-0-0---0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0----|
          G----1--1--1-1-1---2--2--2-2-2-2-2-2----|
          D----2--2--2-2-2---4--4--4-4-4-4-4-4----|
          A----2--2--2-2-2---0--0--0-0-0-0-0-0----|
          E----0--0--0-0-0------------------------|
          
          You kinda do it naturally anyway, but make the transition between the two
          chords
          a slide. Sounds nice.
          
          Throughout the rest of the songs, here are the voicings of the chords I'm
          using.
          These names aren't entirely correct, but deal with it, they're close enough.
          
          Asus2 C#m C#m/A E Badd4 Dsus2 B A
          e----0-----4-----0-----0-----0-----0-----2-----0-----|
          B----0-----5-----5-----0-----0-----3-----4-----2-----|
          G----2-----6-----6-----1-----4-----2-----4-----2-----|
          D----2-----6-----6-----2-----4-----0-----4-----2-----|
          A----0-----4-----0-----2-----2-----0-----2-----0-----|
          E----------------------0-----0-----------------------|
          
          For the little chorus line (Feels just like I'm...) Ed does this little
          riff.
          We'll call it Riff 1.
          
          e----------------2---|
          B----------------4---|
          G----------------4---|
          D----------------4---|
          A----------------2---|
          E----2--4--2--0------|
          
          You can also use power chords for that to make it sound bigger. Your call.
          And you may have better luck with the full B chord as a power chord too.
          
          The other main guitar riff is the little alto part that pops up after the
          chorus lines
          every now and then. Here's a take on that one:
          This will be officially called Riff 2.
          
          e--------------------------|--------------------------|
          B----------5---7--9--7--5--|----------5---7~~~~----5--|
          G----4~~~------------------|----4~~~------------------|
          D--------------------------|--------------------------|
          A--------------------------|--------------------------|
          E--------------------------|--------------------------|
          
          Now, that 9th fret note in the first measure sounds more like a full
          pre-bend
          at the 7th fret, but I can't remember how to notate that in TAB. Any band
          at
          the 7th fret should sound ok, or played as written above.
          Occassionally, the just play the second half of this. I notate when.
          Anyway, if you're playing this solo acoustic you won't be playing this
          anyway, so nevermind.
