Guitar Tabs, Chords and Lyrics


Big Machine   Goo Goo Dolls



Well, this is probably the correct way to play it. It is another one of Johnny's weird tunings; D# A# A# D....but hey? What about the other two? Well, Johnny said that the D and the high E string got in the way, so he just chopped them off. unless you want ot sacrafice these strings, this is as close as you can get; just put it in this tuning:
 D#-A#-D#-A#-D-D. The E and D wont be played as much, so here it is.The rythem is weird, so follow carefully.I have added some lead parts mixed in with the chords.It adds cool chorus-like sound.
