Everybody Hurts Tab

   
Everybody Hurts

By R.E.M. (Berry, Buck, Mills, Stipe)
From, Automatic for the People

Ok, I’m writing this to be the definitive tab for this song,
hopefully to get it as close to the original as I can.
From what I can tell there are three guitars:
	1)Electric Guitar – plays a picking pattern throughout the
	song. Has a very clean sound w/reverb.
	2)Acoustic Guitar – plays rhythm during the chorus, break and
	at the end of the song (outro)
	3)Electric Guitar 2 – Plays chords during the break and 
	outro. Distorted, thick sound.
The chords are based on the bass and arpeggiated guitar picking.
Where chord names are seen play the appropriate Riff and where shown,
add the rhythm if you like. Play it how you like – just enjoy it!
