I have figured out some of the songs leads (not much) and now am wanting to write it in guitar pro or something similar.

So I was trying to figure out the start chords and I gathered it's in Bm.

I'm not sure if it's right 100% though (well the 2nd chord mostly)

so here is my first attempt, i cant show timing info here but i'm sure you'll get it, please post what you think so far

Bm
-------------------------
-------------------------
-----------7-------------
------9------9---9--11-11
----9---9------9---------
-7-----------------------

(don't know what this chord would be, maybe a d# something?)
----------------------------
----------------------------
----------------------------
-------9----11--9-----9--11-
---------9---------9--------
-7--10----------------------

I don't know about this second part and seeing him live it looks like he might have been playin octaves

Any ideas?

that second bit looks like it's outlining a Bm chord as well.

Has any of you tried playing it? Do you think it sounds right?

They're both essentially Bmadd9 with the second being in the first inversion if you look at the D in the bass.

man! I didn,t know there was a tab book. I was doing it 'cos I've never seen the tab on the net and a lot of people were asking for it.

I have done more of it but i don't have a good enough whammy pedal.

The Whammy bit isn't what I expected it to be! its sort of major triads, really awkward sounding without the pedal!

yeah i can sort of see where to play it but i cant get a good setting on my crappy zoom 707 II.

Do you think I should continue transcribing it or just leave it if its already done?

Would rather try things no one can get from anywhere, then theyre usefull.
