NOTES:

* The song, obviously, starts with the intro. The intro is played through
  a couple times and then the song goes directly into the chorus. Turning on
  a low-gain distortion would not be a bad idea here, because that seems to be
  what Tony (and probably Stephan) is using here.

* The intro is the first verse, too. Just a side note.

* The first verse is all chords, and then back into another chorus.

* The second chorus goes straight into the bridge.  This is the "I liked the
  way it was before" part.

* The bridge goes directly into the breakdown, which is the part where Tony
  starts soloing over top.

* The breakdown is interrupted back into another verse w/ chords.

* This verse w/ chords is interrupted by Stephan's intro fingerpicking verse.

* This verse finally ends and goes right back into another chorus still in normal time.

* After the "I'll be your crystal baller, I will show you everything," the time changes.
  There is less emphasis on the 587555/x0321x chord.  This is the same beat the solo is
  played to.

Enjoy!
