album: Cheer Up!

standard tuning

intro: bass for a while, then hit a D, and then this is the pickup
we'll call the second bar "RIFF A" for future reference:

e:-----------------|----------------|
b:-----------------|----------------|
g:-----------------|----------------|
d:-4---------------|----------------|
a:-4---------------|------0---------|
e:-2---------------|0-2-3-----------|
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
                    RIFF A

then the intro w/ full band:
D   D   Db  Db  |B   B   A   A   |G   G   F#  F#  |RIFF A          |
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |

repeat those four bars
____________________________________________________________________
verse:
the part for the verses is the same as the instrumental section
between the intro and verse 1.  the chords are:
   A   D   C   G
e:-5---5---3---3-------------------|
b:-5---7---5---3-------------------|
g:-6---7---5---4-------------------|
d:-7-----------5-------------------|
a:---------------------------------|
e:---------------------------------|

the part goes like this:
  A   A   A   A |  D   D   D   D |  C   C   C   C |  G   G   G   G |
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
____________________________________________________________________
pre-chorus: power chords.  the E is a high E.
F#      G       |A               |F#      G       |A               |
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
You ruined my life...

F#      G       |A               |B               |D D       E     |
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
All I can hope is that...
____________________________________________________________________
chorus: again, the E is a high E

first play the intro part twice, then:
A   A   B   B   |Db  Db  D   D   |E   E   D   D   |Db  Db  B   B   |
1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
____________________________________________________________________
during the guitar solo, the rhythm is just like the intro, except a
step up.  in other words, each power chord is 2 frets higher.

also, instead of RIFF A, play this (RIFF B, i guess) instead:

a:-----0-2---------|
e:-2-4-------------|
   1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + |
____________________________________________________________________
that should be it.  hopefully i didn't forget anything.
