Only When I Sleep  The Corrs

Subject: the Corrs...

**Only when I sleep**
By the Corrs, from the album Talk on corners.
Figured out by Simon Forsman.
Some of the chords on this song is kinda odd, and I don't know what
they're called. But on the bottom of this page I'll show you the tabs on
theese chords. And in the end of the verses there's a guitar riff -
check bottom of page.
The bass is always going B, A, E, A on the verses, but the guitar
sometimes (or always) go to the A6/Db-chord instead of the bass's A. So
if you wanna variate: Instead of the A's on the verses, use the
A6/Db-chord (see tab).
And instead of the E's on the verses the guitar sometimes goes to some
kind of E/Ab-chord... But if you're only using the guitar and no bass,
you might aswell just play all the ordinary chords. Sounds better.
There's a riff in the beginning of the song. I'll give you the tab on
that riff (not the entire solo). Just a nice intro...
