This chord pattern runs throughout the rest of the song, the pattern of the verse is the
throughout and the chorus is the same throughout apart from in the final chorus


Basically there is a key change that occurs, the chorus is played though normally, then
is a noticeable shift.


The "E", "A", "B" combination becomes


"F#", "B", "G#"

and then the final part moves up again to


"G#", "C#", "D#"

The same strumming pattern is used throughout, listen to the CD to alter the pattern to
the key change towards the end
