This I Love Tab

   
My first time tabbing a song, I felt this one really needed to be created.
If some stuff is wrong let me know, I've exhausted my ear for an hour trying to figure 
the solo to this song.

I can almost guarantee something will be off, but I think that overall I nailed most of it.

This song is written in the key of Ab, and the guitars are tuned down to Eb Standard, 
old school Guns.
Therefore, chords go: Am - F - Dm - G. The G chord is iffy.
****see comments section for ideas on the 4th chord. 
When I play the chords on the piano (so it would be Gb),
it sounds right underneath the right hand melody, but stand alone on the guitar doesn't 
right to me.
Maybe it's just me, play around with it if you like.

          Am
And now I don't know why
            F
She wouldn't say goodbye
           Dm
But then it seems that I
           G
Had seen it in her eyes
           Am
Though it might not be wise
                    F
I'd still have to try
                   Dm
With all the love I have inside
            G
I can't deny

I just can't let it die
Cause her heart's just like mine
And she holds her pain inside
So if you ask me why
She wouldn't say goodbye
I know somewhere inside
There is a special light
Still shining bright
And even on the darkest night
She can't deny

So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There's no one else could ever make me feel
I'm so alive
I hoped she'd never leave me
Please God you must believe me
I've searched the universe and found myself
Within' her eyes

No matter how I try
They say it's all a lie
So what's the use of my
Confessions to a crime
Of passions that won't die
In my heart

At this part, a distorted guitar comes in lower in the mix.
it sounds like it's playing A5, F5, D5, G5  or something similar to that.

So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There's no one else could ever make me feel
I'm so alive
I hoped she'd never leave me
Please God you must believe me
I've searched the universe and found myself
Within' her eyes

SOLO TIME!!!
Robin Finck does a fantastic solo for this song.
I sat with my guitar and itunes for an hour trying to figure it all out.
The basic idea should be down. Some parts may be a little off, I think an hour working 
this was long enough.
Like I mentioned, it's my first tab, so if it's hard to understand
I'm sorry, I found some parts difficult to tab out, I'm not too good at it.
Have fun with this one!

***see comments section for additional ideas for the solo.

The next part continues under the chorus. I tried to show exactly where the notes are 
to the lyrics.

So if she's somewhere near me
I hope to God she hears me
There's no one else could ever make me feel
I'm so alive
I hoped she'd never leave me
Please God you must believe me
I've searched the universe and found myself
Within' her eyes


"so if she's somewhere.."      "i hope to God.."

For the Ab bend, Finck holds it for a long time. listen to get it right.

So now I don't know why
She wouldn't say goodbye
It just might be that I
Had seen it in her eyes
And now it seems that I
Gave up my ghost of pride
I'll never say goodbye
