Chords used:
EADBGe
G (3x0033)
B7add11 (x21200), while one guitar plays "B7add11", the other plays B7
(x24242)
C (x32010)
C/B (x2x010), or try this as G/B (x20033) if you'd like
D (xx0232)
D/F# (2x0232), or perhaps you'd like D5/F# (2x02xx) or (2x023x) better
Em (022000)
A (x02220)
F (x33211)
Tab Key:
b = bend (7b8 means bend the string at the 7th fret to make approximately
the note the string would make if played at the 8th fret with no bend)
r = release bend
h = hammer on
p = pull off
s = slide (a quick slide, the two notes sound almost like one note)
/ = slower slide (sounds like two separate notes)
> = play string at specified fret and slide finger(s) down the string an
unspecified distance
() = harmonics, (12) means lightly touch the string directly past the 12th
fret then pick the string
~ = vibrato (vibrate note)
NOTE: When the one guitar plays a B7addE, it's played something like this:
[B7add11]
