* h -> hammer-on - keep first finger on the 7th fret, while tapping the 9th
fret with your third finger. Releasing the third finger will generate the
note back on the 7th fret, which is still held down by the first finger!  (
This is for those of you who are unfamiliar with some guitar techniques -
hope you can visualize that one, if you're not confused with my description
:/ )

Chorus:

     E (10th)   C       G

G|---9----\-----5-------4-------------------------------------------|
D|---9----\-----5-------5-------------------------------------------|

E|----------------------3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-----------|

  ** The above is a simpler way to play the chorus.  If you listen
carefully, you can hear the octave chords.

(if you can call it that)

E|----------(0)-------||----------------------------------------------|
              ^optional
  Proper timing: Play F# for whole bar, then D in the other three:
  ** A whole bar, in common (4/4) time, has four beats per measure(bar).
  F# | D | D | D |   x2


         B | D | E | D   C B |   x2

This is a pretty hard song to play; the bottom may be a bit confusing but if you listen 
the song you will get the feel of things
