Notes:
**********************************************************************
FROM DALE LINDSEY:


INTRO: A chord diagramA augmentedA lot of my information comes from actually watching the band
perform live and on video. When my version differs from the chords
of the original submitter, I try to give both. From watching and
listening to Queensryche, I believe they use the A chord diagramCadd9Cadd9 form a lot.


CHORUS:  Mike Wilton strums the chords while Chris Degarmo plays the
tabbed part. He (Chris) picks down on the base note and up for the
melody, starting out in an open A chord diagramD MajorD and using his pinky to trace out
the melody line on the high A chord diagramE MajorE string. It sounds better when you get
a little slide back from the fifth fret before the open note (that is
what the '\'s mean). I really can't tell how many strings he actually
plays on the upstroke, but I have played it with 1, 2 or all 3 strings
ringing out and it sonds good either way. Letting more strings sound
is very helpful if you have only a 6-string as he is palying a
12-string. The bass notes are based almost entirely on visual
information (they can't be heard on the album), but they seem to
sound right when playingsolo. It is all a matter of personal
preference and your playing situation.


SOLO: By the end of the solo the strings/keyboard almost swamps out
the guitar, and it ends on a different note, so you are playing with
no keyboard, you may want to play the keyboard ending instead. Try

ending on the 7th fret on the A chord diagramG+G string instead of the 4th. Whichever
you think sounds best.

**********************************************************************
FROM DAVID SCHMITT:

EXTRA LITTLE NOTES: Play an A chord diagramE MajorE at the 5th fret of the second string
right before "Your mind tricked you to feel the pain."


CHORUS: depending on my mood, I either play whole note power
chords or strum (eighth notes) the chords.  Depending on what
sounds good at the time, I play either a A chord diagramC majorC or a A chord diagramC6C6 chord.
Technically, it's supposed to be a A chord diagramC6C6 chord, but some days it
just doesn't sound right.

PLAYING: Chris DeGarmo plays a spanish, nylon 6-string acoustic for
the rhythm part.  I'm pretty sure a normal 6-string and a 12-string
join in along the way.  As the the song progresses, I think a
6-string electric (clean) comes in. Another electric comes in for the

solo.  I always play this song with a steel 6-string and it sounds
fine. If you play with steel strings play without a pick: it sounds
better IMHO.  Any nylon string players probably want to follow
DeGarmo's part with a pick.  This info is just IMHO, not written in
stone.


SOLO: Playing the heavily repeated part of the solo on acoustic is
kinda tough (which is what I always play the entire song with).  It
never really sounds right.  I freelance that part just about every
time I play it.  If you have an electric with a tremolo bar (sp) and
all the effects (I think Chris DeGarmo likes chorus, octave, and
overdrive, but don't hold me to that), you can make it sound perfect.
