The Act We Act  Sugar

THE ACT WE ACT by SUGAR
This is a pretty simple song from a rhythm point of view. I haven't
included any of the leads because I don't know them.
INTRO:
 
 A--2h3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3
 E--0h1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1-1 

Play 8 times.
Verse riff:
[F5] [E5] [Am] [B]  
 
 e------------------------ ---------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7
 B------------------------ ---------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7
 G------------------------ -5-5-5-5-5-5-5-8-8-8-8-8-8-8
 D-3-----------2---------- -7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9
 A-3-3-3-3-3-3-2-2-2-2-2-2 -7-7-7-7-7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-9
 E-1-1-1-1-1-1-0-0-0-0-0-0 -5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7-7 

Palm mute heavily For F5, and gradually ease it off through the riff.
[F5]I'm watching you [E5]walk as you [Am]walk that [B]distant way
[F5]Take that thing [E5]away from me [Am]take away most [B]everything
[F5]I couldn't say I'd [E5]blame you or you should [Am]never look in [B]back
[F5]You wouldn't be to [E5]blame if you [Am]couldn't take it [B]back
CHORUS:
[G]Hours slipping [Am]by as you [B]watch the worlds col[C]lide
[G]Now you're nothing [Am]more than a[B]nother passer[C]by
[G]The dark it turns to [Am]light in a [B]distant flash of [C]night
Rolling [G]with the [Am]tide I confide [B]the act we wea[C]r it thin again
I think that on the album, these are played as E-shape barre chords
(similar to the verse riff, but less restrained), but I play them as open
position chords to go easy on my left hand.
INTRO RIFF 4 TIMES
The other verses and choruses are played with the same riffs:
If affection holds you back then what is left to hold
If I could find the answer to that question then I'd know
The thoughts that clutter up your mind and leave me feeling drained
And walking pacing up the walls across the floor again
CHORUS:
All the things I haven't seen once the final curtain has been raised
The act we act is wering thin the act we act we under my skin
The words the words we said goodbye the words left choking in my mind
The act we act is wering thin I think we wear it out again
SOLO: Play the verse riff under any lead you'd like :)
OUTRO CHORUSES:
Another big explosion leaving you hoping
That something that once held you down could leave you feeling on the ground
The confusion that persists decisions that you guessed
The one to stay and watch this the one you might have missed
REPEAT 2ND CHORUS
CONTINUE PLAYING CHORUS FIGURE:
Forming a conclusion
And you're left standing
PLAY INTRO RIFF 4 TIMES
End on E5 chord.
Well, this is how I play it..enjoy!
