Ok, so there you have it. This is a killer song and it is also very easy to
play. There may be some mistakes here because I posted it without listening
to it while I was writing but I don't think so. I also figured out the piano
part (and arranged it for guitar) and the guitar solo but I'm not gonna post
them for the moment. Anyway, they're both fairly easy and are played using
the E major scale, which is, of course, spelled E F# G# A B C# D#.
During the verse I play E/G# which I've seen presented often with impossible
fingerings such as 422100. So, I either play an open position E chord and have
somebody (possibly a bass player) play a G# note or I play arpeggios throughout
the verse and then strum the chords in the chorus. If I play arpeggios, I
usually play: E(022100), B(x2444x), F#m(xx4222), E/G# (xx6450) and A(x07650).
This is the way I play it but of course it is just one of the many ways to do
it, so feel free to change it around and experiment and maybe let me know if
you have comments, corrections, suggestions or any request...
