Only in Dreams


Only in Dreams Weezer (the greatest weezer song ever, period.)
this is my rough interpretation of the song, it sounds not bad…
bass intro then the guitar plays this through verses except first half of 2nd verse e---0------0--------0---0---0----0---------------- b---0------0--------1---0---1---0----------------- g---4------2--------0---0---0---0----------------- d---4------2--------2---2---2---2----------------- a---2------0--------3---3---3---3----------------- e---------------------------------------------------- figure out how long to strum the first two, then play that little C ditty
chorus: play this twice e----------------------------------------------------------------------------- b----------------------------------------------------------------------------- g---------------------------5-5------------------------------------------- d-----9-9-7-7-555-----------5-5-9-7-777-------------------------------- a-----9-9-7-7-555-----------3-3-9-7-777-------------------------------- e-----7-7-5-3-333---------------7-5-555-------------------------------- then this
e----------------------------------------------------------------------------- b----------------------------------------------------------------------------- g------------3-333----------5-555----------------5-5-6-7---------- d---333------3-333----555---5-555--9-9-7-5-555---5-5-6-7---------- a---333------1-111----555---3-333--9-9-7-5-555---3-3-4-5---------- e---111---------------333----------7-7-5-3-333----------------------
part where he says “only in dreams” a bunch: g---444/9999\\2222-77\\55------------------------------------------------ d---444/9999\\2222-77\\55------------------------------------------------ a---222/7777\\0000-55\\33------------------------------------------------
pretty little part before super cool solo: e-----7---------------------------------------------8------------------- b-------8----(repeat that however you like then)------7------(ditto)--- g---------7---------------------------------------------8---------------
super cool solo: I just like, do something like this beginning with the A string, then I do it on the D, then on the G, and etc.
and after that when it gets all crazy and it’s actually a solo, I dunno, since I play by myself I just go back to that riff I called “part where he says “only in dreams” a bunch” and play that, maybe later I’ll get the solo from my friend and tab it out
well anyways, after that it goes back to the verse guitar part and end. Beautiful song. Best Weezer song. Please don’t dog on me too much I think it’s pretty good. Have fun with it. Oh my, I love weezer. peaceout
