(Use thumb for G chord diagramGG in the bass)

Dynamics and voicings are important for this track, as the song builds and gathers emotion, add in bass notes,
hammer ons / pull offs (from Dmaj chord diagramDmajDmaj to D chord diagramDD for instance) to enhance the effect.
This is also essentially a two part song, after the last Chorus: we switch from the key of D chord diagramDD to A chord diagramAA.
Power chords and barre chords work well here, as it is heavier and more intense than the first section.

In the Refrain:, use barre chords and slide up from E chord diagramEE when you switch to A chord diagramAA at the 5th fret:
e|--------0/5--------|
B|--------0/5--------|
G|--------1/6--------|
D|--------2/7--------|
A|--------2/7--------|
E|--------0/5--------|

For the Solo:, turn up the gain and throw in some higher notes with your pinky:
e|---5------5---5----|
B|---5--7-----7------|
G|---6---------------|
D|---7---------------|
A|---7---------------|
E|---5---------------|
