Chorus (A = 10th fret. Formatting issue)

e|-7--------------|-7--------------|

g|----------------|-9-7------------|
d|----------------|-----A-7--------|
a|----------------|---------7-A----|
e|-7--------------|-------------A-8|

Verse x15
g|----------------|----------------|
d|----------------|----------------|
a|-----------797--|---------79-79-7|
e|-7-0-9-0-9-----7|-0-9-0-9--------|

That 79 at back of each bar in the Verse is a hammer on… Pluck the 7, hammer the 9.

There’s a cheat on the walk down on the chorus. It’s actually supposed to be an octave higher, like:

g|----------------|----------------|
d|----------------|----------------|
a|----------------|----------------|
e|-7--------------|-7--------------|

g|----------------|1715------------|
d|----------------|----1815--------|
a|----------------|--------1518----|
e|-7--------------|------------1816|

17 & 15 on the G; then
18 & 15 on the D; then
15 & 18 on the A; then
18 & 16 on the E

Formatting issue. When you can play it properly an octave higher, at speed, and have it sound good, you’re golden.

Enjoy!
