C     - x32010                  h  - hammer on
CM9   - x20010                  p  - pull-off
Am    - x02210                  /  - Slide Up
CM9/G - 320010                  \  - Slide Down
F     - x33210                  ~  - let ring
1/2 Play chord for half a note



Note  - The Strumming can be figured out by listening to the song,
        it goes something like this:

        e|--000--000--000--000----0...
        B|--111--111--111--111----1...
        G|--000--000--222--000----0...
        D|--222--000--222--000----2... (General idea)
        A|-3333-2222-0000--222-2h33...
        E|----------------3333-----...

     - The first note you hear at the beginning of the song is by
       the rhythm guitar, not the solo one.
     - Pay close attention for timing on the solo.
     - Depending on your guitar and amp settings(tone, etc..), some notes
       on the solo might be at different locations, but they are at that
       same pitch and same octave.

     - A really neat hammer on play during the first verse goes like this
        **CM9/G******
        e|----------------0----|
        B|---------1-1----1----|
        G|---------0-0----0----|
        D|----------2-----2----|
        A|----0h3-3-3--2h33----|
        E|-0h3-----------------|

     - During the CM9/G over Paradise in the chorus, it goes like this
       for all of them, and the ones during the All Alone x4 at the end:
        e|-------|
        B|---01--|
        G|-0000--|
        D|-0000--|
        A|-2222--|
        E|-3333--|

     - During the All alone (x4) at the end, the Guitar 2 is basically
       playing the same as Guitar 1, but only one string at a time. I've
       written a guide for those who'd like some details, but most people
       can just wing it however they feel like playing.

C              CM9    Am                        CM9/G
 Now my body's aching, There's both ends of the candle burned
C             CM9       Am    CM9/G
 My heart is beating slow,
C              CM9      Am   CM9/G
 It's worn me to the bone

I am not sure why the other Paradise tab is rated 5 stars. This tab is clearly superior. Great tab

Thanks for the great tab, pretty much perfect but i've figured out 3 notes that need changing to make it bang on for guitar part 2.

The intro for Guitar 2 - the second part should be

e|---------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------|
G|---------------54----------------------------|
D|-----3~---5-7-----5---5-7--------------------|
A|--3/5--5/7---------5-7----5~-3-5/7-5\3-3~~---|
E|--------------------------------------5------|

And very similar for the second time after the first chorus:
e|---------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------5-------------------------------|
G|---------------54----7-54--------------------------|
D|-----3~---5-7-----5--------5/7-------5-7p5---------|
A|--3/5--5/7---------------------5~-5h7------5\3~~~--|
E|---------------------------------------------------|

essentially swapping out the 7's for a 4.
Fingers crossed that makes sense, it definitely sounds right played along to the track.

Again, thanks for the awesome tab in the first place!
Cheers!
