Band: Goo Goo Dolls
Song: Big Machine
Album: Gutterflower and Live in Buffalo CD/DVD
Tuning (This isnt the correct tuning for Guitar 1 but its the easiest way 
to tune the guitar than how johnny does it)
Guitar 1 : DADGBe
Guitar 2 : EADGBe
Bass     : EADG

Johnny doesn’t use the D string in this song (you can see if you look closely in the 
DVD) and all the times chords are played involving this string they will be put as muted (x)

He plays it differently in the live version - he plays each chord one note lower, e.g.:

Gutterflower version:      Live version:
e|---|				|---|
B|---|				|---|
G|-7-|				|-6-|
D|-x-|				|-x-|
A|-5-|				|-4-|
D|---|				|---|

I will tab the gutterflower version, so for the live version just move each chord down a note.
