This is my first attempt at tab, so give me a little freedom here...

I know that Queensryche loves barre chords, but I play it with open chords since the song needs space. Long drawn out open chords are mighty powerful in creating that 'dreamy, spatial' feeling. *************************************************************** Lyrics/Arrangement:
Opening: Rhy Fig 1 twice | Rhy fig 2 | Rhy fig 2a |
Rhy Fig 1 twice Hush now, don't you cry,
Rhy Fig 2 Rhy Fig 2a wipe away the teardrop from your eye.
Rhy Fig 1a twice You're lying safe in bed,
Rhy Fig 2b twice it was all a bad dream spinning in your head.
Rhy Fig 3 twice Your mind tricked you to feel the pain,
Rhy Fig 4 twice Of someone close to you leaving the game (of life).
Rhy Fig 3 twice Rhy Fig 4 So here it is, another chance, wide awake you face the day.
&& The dream is over, or has it just begun....?
Rhy Fig 5 twice | Rhy Fig 2c twice
Rhy Fig 5 twice There's a place I like to hide, If you open your mind for me,
Rhy Fig 2c twice a doorway that I run through in the night. you won't rely on open eyes to see.
Rhy Fig 5 twice Relax child, you were there, The walls you built within
Rhy Fig 2c twice but only didn't realise that you were scared. come tumbling down and a new world will begin.
Rhy Fig 3 twice It's a place where you will learn Living twice at once you learn,
Rhy Fig 4 twice to face your fears, retrace the years, you're safe from pain in the dream domain,
and ride the whims of your mind. a soul set free to fly.
Rhy Fig 3 twice Commanding in another world, A round trip journey in your head,
Rhy Fig 4 twice suddenly you hear and see this magic new dimension.... master of illusion, can you realise your dream's alive
2nd time: (you can be the guide, but)
D C6 I.................will be watching over you
D C6 I.................am gonna help to see you through
D C6 I.................will protect you in the night
D C6 $$$ 2nd time &&& I.................am smiling next to you, in silent lucidity....
Rhy Fig 1b twice
Rhy Fig 6 twice (Begin solo)| Rhy Fig 7 twice | Rhy Fig 6 twice | Rhy Fig 7 twice | (rhythm section rest)
Voice: Visualise your dream, Record it in the present tense, Put it into a permanent form, If you persist in all efforts, You can achieve a dream come true... ...a dream come true... ...a dream come true... (Go to 2nd verse)
--------------------------------------------------------------- $$$ Play (along with "am smiling next to you") ------------------------| ------------------------| -9--7--5-----5----------| 10--9--5-----5----------| ----------7-------------| ------------------------|
&& Strum : E x B 3 G 0 D 5 A x E x
&&& Rhy Fig 1b 5 times and pluck : E 7 B 0 G x D 5 A x E x
*************************************************************** Notes: EXTRA LITTLE NOTES: Play an E at the 5th fret of the second string right before "Your mind tricked you to feel the pain." After "or has it just begun...?" hammer an E from the open D string followed by an open G string before entering Rhy Fig 5.
CHORUS: depending on my mood, I either play whole note power chords or strum (eighth notes) the chords. Depending on what sounds good at the time, I play either a C or a C6 chord. Technically, it's supposed to be a C6 chord (my two versions o' tab confirm this), but some days it just doesn't sound right.
PLAYING: Chris DeGarmo plays a spanish, nylon 6-string acoustic for the rhythm part. I'm pretty sure a normal 6-string and a 12- string join in along the way. As the the song progresses, I think a 6-string electric (clean) comes in. Another electric comes in for the solo (see below). I always play this song with a steel 6-string and it sounds fine. If you play with steel strings play without a pick: it sounds better IMHO. Any nylon string players probably want to follow DeGarmo's part with a pick. This info is just IMHO, not written in stone.
SOLO: Playing the heavily repeated part of the solo on acoustic is kinda tough (which is what I always play the entire song with). It never really sounds right. I freelance that part just about every time I play it. If you have an electric with a tremolo bar (sp) and all the effects (I think Chris DeGarmo likes chorus, octave, and overdrive, but don't hold me to that), you can make it sound perfect.
STRING ARRANGEMENT: I have no idea what the string arrangement is (done by Michael Kamen of _Robin Hood_, etc, etc fame), nor do I even have a clue. I would like to play them on my 'board, so if anybody knows it, I would be glad if they sent it my way.

Hope you all liked it. As this is my first tab, comments, as always, are appresciated. Flame, as always, is not.
Play on.....

and similarly for Rhy.Fig.1a. This is the way I play it and seems a little easier. (Thanks for the rest of the post!)
