2000 Miles  The Pretenders

2000 Miles
The Pretenders
(1983)
(This whole song should be played on a Rickenbacker 12-string or per
"The Isle of View" on an acoustic 12-string! -- LM)
The intro lick, that also continues through most of the song,
goes like this:
 
 e|---------2-3-|-0-------2-3-|
 b|-3-----------|---3---------|
 G|---0---------|-----2-------|
 D|-----0-------|-------------|
 A|-------------|-------------|
 E|-------------|-------------|

Try this instead -- let the bass notes ring. Note that the timing is
triplets:
t t t t t t t t t t t t
 
 e|--------2-3-0-------2-3-|
 4 b|3-------------3---------|
 - G|--0-------------0-------|
 4 D|----0-------------------|
 A|------------3-----0-----|
 E|3-----3-----------------|

Then right before the first verse:
 
 e|-------------|
 b|-3p1-0-------|
 G|-------2-0---|
 D|-----------4-|
 A|-------------|
 E|-------------|

In these frozen silent nights
Sometimes in a dream

Outside under the purple sky
Diamonds in the snow
