Time After Time  R.E.M



F--|-0----0-0-0---3-3-sl-5-0-----| This is the main riff and repeats many times

C--|-3----3-3-3---3-3--------0---| throughout the song. I believe that the main
Ab-|-2----2-2-2---2-2------------| chord here is Dsus2 with some extra picking
Eb-|-0----0-0-0---0-0------------| thrown in. Wierd, but not so hard once you get
Bb-|-----------------------------| the hang of it. Tune to F to maximize ringing
F--|-----------------------------| of open strings. (Or play in standard tuning
Eb-|-0-0-0-0----0-0-0-0---| This is the droning heard through most of the song.
Bb-|-5-5-5-5----5-5-5-5---| Play with either two or three strings, your choice.
Gb-|-9-9-9-9--------------|
Db-|----------------------|
Ab-|----------------------|
Eb-|----------------------|

End on Eb chord (7th fret)

Notes: There are three guitars on this song. One (tuned to F?) plays the
main riff. The second basically drones on Eb notes, played on two strings at
once. A 12 string would be ideal for this part. A third guitar plays the Eb
chord on the seventh fret (with open Eb and Bb strings). It sounds like
there's more going on due to the interaction of these parts.
