It looks to me like all the previous chord versions on UT are basically the
same, and none have the features I've put in mine:
-The first chord of the chorus should be minor, not major.
-Approach chord (E after G)
-Chord order and double-time in last chorus
It's not in the original key... it's in the easy key! You can put a capo on
or transpose the page if you don't want to play it in C :)

Hi, good tab
2 things I like to do that add a bit of juice :

- in the 3rd chorus in the line "I said my heart, it don't beat," replace the F major above "beat" with a Dm

- in the line "For reasons unknown" play half of the bar of F major with a flattened 5th - so if you're playing the F at the 1st fret you'd drop the 5th string finger from C to B - I actually play this transposed down 5 steps to G so the chord in question here is a C and you just need to add a note at the 4th fret on the 4th string :

Ooh I like the Dm. It twists the original progression just a little farther.

I'm not quite good enough to drop that C to B comfortably but I definitely hear how it works and I like that it breaks up that measure... always felt like I wanted that chord to change but didn't know where to/from.

Thanks for the tips!

Just was playing this on the piano; great tab and progression although at first it seemed slightly off. I found that it is actually a half step down meaning its in the key of E major.

The progression would move from

E major to B Major to F# major; then A# minor

Translation to 1/2 steplower
F = E Major
C = B Major
F = F# Major
Am = A# minor
E = D#Major

I want to post or [tab]
