There is already a chord archive for this, but here is a tab
representation
for the keyboardy part. This is just my interpretation, so when you
improve
on it, please let me know!!
Add a little chorus and a tiny bit'a delay for the keyboard part, the
rhythm
should be played with an electro-accoustic all the way through.
(Those naughty x's are supposed to give an idea of the strummed rhythm!)
Chord shapes:
Play all the chords in their open shape.

Strum this whole bit:

7 phew, for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myse----lf.
7 for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myse----lf.
7 ....humming....
7 phew, for a minute there, I lost myself, I lost myse----lf.
Play a clean Bm for a bar or two, then, keep a phasing high EQ
fuzzy high gain distortion type sound going on a Bm for a
while and end with a fiddle of the volume on guitar while
feeding back. Put down guitar with 3/4 volume next to amp,
walk off and distress your neighbours with the effects still
squealing!!!
(These are what the effects are called on a Zoom 505!)
Note:
We do have the keyboard part worked out for keyboard, but we
play it with guitar.
