The verses all follow the same pattern. Listen to the song to figure out the exact
timings, this is just a rough guide.
Follow me into the desert
As thirsty as you are
Crack a smile and cut your mouth
And drown in alcohol
And so on and so forth. Now, the trick is to hit the low string/s (i'm very lazy!)
twice each time you make a chord change. 'duh duh strum strum strum'. Except maybe
on that second C in each section, it just sounds like strumming to me. Listen to
the song, you'll figure it out!
This is a little tricky. There are some odd timings here. Having the song is
helpful, but I strongly recommend the Guitar Pro tab, its really good for figuring
out the timing of the last bit.
This from the chords ver 2 tab seems to work well enough:
There she goes
Then the tricky bit:
Out in the sunshine the sun is mine the sun is mine
This is a good chorus, with that great little descending tune after each line.
Again, this is very rough timing for the chord changes, listen to song! Its pretty
I shot my love today would you cry for me
I lost my head again would you lie for me
I left her in the sand just a burden in my hand
I lost my head again would you cry for me
At the end of playing the A# slide down to the G#. Then continue to play the G# as
per the song.
Taken pretty much from chords ver 2
Play each chord 3 times
Just a burden in my hand
Just an anchor on my heart
Just a tumor in my head
Last chorus - repeat the second part of the last line; thats the part from
onwards ('would you cry for me'). Then right at the end, it sounds like another
, like in the prechorus.
Thats it! Well, not really, but from there you can figure it out, and be as
accurate or as lazy as you please. Hope this helps someone, I really just wanted
to play that great chorus riff without re-tuning and such.
