1st Verse to Chorus...
Verse 2x (w/ Guitar Solo)
Verse (vox begin)
Chorus (2x)
2nd Verse starts with Verse and follows a similar pattern
Nearly Lost You consists of only a few main chord progressions.
It's a fairly simple song to play. All that's necessary is the
basic distortion for the majority of the song and even the solo
can be played without any effects. The toughest part is the
chord switching in the Intro. This is how I play it...
First Finger, 3rd Fret Low E
Second Finger, 4th Fret G
Third Finger, 5th Fret A
Fourth Finger, 5th Fret D
I barre the G string with my pinky (4th finger) when the chord
Also, without knowing the song well, it'll be hard to totally
organize this song. If you don't have the album, buy it. It's
honestly one of the best albums ever made. There are also
quick fills between chord switches during the Verse that I
haven't tabbed... they're just quick hammers and pull offs.
The Solo Riff is the base for the solos that appear throughout
the song, whether it's during the verse riff or the solo itself.
During the solo, the rhythm guitar plays the verse riff.
The original version of the "Nearly Lost You" tab (by had the song's basics down. I organized
the basics, corrected a few things, and tried to time them
fairly accurately.
h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
\ = slide down
() = optional/shadow note
