You can strum any of these E chords for the bridge but I prefer the first example

                                                             Chorus

For the chorus there is a lead part (lead) and then the chords to play over it (rhythm)
Which are both hard to hear because of how much key board is used

The last note of the song, the high A on the 14th fret on the G string can also be
as an A on the 12th fret on the A string,


Note, the riff used in the chorus can be played by bending certain strings in stead of 
them


Instead of playing it like this
e|-------------------------|
B|-------------------------|
G|---------9-12-11-9-------|
D|-------11----------------|
A|--12-12-----------12-----|                          IF there are any mistakes

                                                      Improve this please let
You can play it like this       me know
