PRE-CHORUS

CHORUS

Instead of the bend at the end play this:

|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|--------------------------------///14---10///-------8---10--11--|
|--------------------------------///14---10///-------6---8---9---|
                                 ^^^^^^^^^^^^^      
                        Don't stick to this exactly, 
             just that general sound will do, listen to the song

VERSE X2

|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|
|12----------12----------12----------12----------12~~~~~~\\\-----|
|10----------10----------10----------10----------10~~~~~~\\\-----|

That is the main guitar all the way through the song, however over the verse at the very start, 
at the end, and possibly in other places (listen to the song for it) there is a second
guitar part doing this:

|----------------------------------------------------------------|--------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|--------|
|/-14141414141414141414141414141414--14b15r14---12b13r12---------|--------|
|/ 12121212121212121212121212121212------------------------121210|12~~~~~~|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|--------|
|----------------------------------------------------------------|--------|
                                                                  ^^^^^^^^  
                                                        Do this after last time through

This is a great song, and now, finally, everyone can play it right!

Enjoy! (This took me ages)
