I suggest watching http://www.youtube.com/watch v=BB3hXrW_jz8
to get timings and such.


intro - slow build up:
Brenden starts by plucking and building up to a A chord diagramG+G chord While Jake plays some harmonics
that i can't quite make out.
----------------------------------------------------|
----------------------8-8-8-------------8-8-8-8-8-8-|
7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7--7-7-7-7-7-7-|
----------------5-5-5-5-5-5--4-4-4-4-4--8-8-8-8-8-8-|
----------------------------------------------------|
----------------------------------------------------|
G-Gm-d
This part is pretty easy.  Brenden strums a G, Gm, A chord diagramD MajorD (sometimes standard d, sometimes a
power chord with a A chord diagramBB bass note on the 6th string) while Jake lays a reverse arpeggio on
the A chord diagramG+G and A chord diagramG+G minor something like this:

---------------------------------------------|
3--------3-----------------------------------|
--4--------3-------7-------------------------|
----5--------5-----7-------------------------|
------5--------5---5-------------------------|
---------------------------------------------|

That's the basis of the intro/chrous parts.  Jake does a lot of improv, particularly
around the A chord diagramD MajorD chord in the chorus chords.

During the verses Brenden plays some arpeggio around the following chord forms

A chord diagramD MajorD       Bb/Gm           A chord diagramG+G
2-------0----3-------0----3----|
3-------3----3-------3----3----|
2-------0-OR-0-------0-or-0----|
--------0----0-------0----0----|
--------1----1-------x----x----|
---------------------3----3----|

The first couple of verses are just Joel playing keys, but if you are playing on an
acoustic by yourself you can play as well:
