If you *don't* know it- its a moody/defiant sounding vocal over a solo
piano. Its 4/4 timing at 80bpm. The verses/bridge are in A chord diagramC majorC minor and the

chorus in A chord diagramC majorC major, which sounds great :>)

The piano part's got loads of twiddly arpeggiated scales and stuff in it,
which sounds a bit too much like like hard work to tab out. It translates
pretty well into to a strummed guitar arrangement though. Here's the
chords, the melody for the vocal and some suggestions for strumming
patterns........

Arrangement..........

the feel is kinda quiet and moody in the early part of the verse,
building up to confident & defiant later on in the verse and in the

chorus (think of Cher getting angsty and expressive.......no , ok,
whatever). (My) arrangement is for strummed guitar. Here's a suggestion
for how much and when......


the early part of the verses, you can *almost* get by with just a single
strum on each chord change, but here's just a bit more.....

[strum gently and let everything ring, except in the third bar which
kinda chugs]


[...then build it up {louder and faster strumming} til you get to the

chorus {which still isn't *real* loud, maybe two-thirds of the loudest
you could ever strum}. Here's the third line of the chorus....

"db/Eb" (at the beginning of the bridge) means pick the A chord diagramA augmentedA string at the

"%" is a keychange (A chord diagramC majorC major to A chord diagramC majorC minor or vice versa)
