Verse (17 measures):
--------------------


#Synthesizer:#

[Dm Em F C ] until two last measures: [Dm | Em]

(The Sythesizer has an effect on it during the 8 first measures that boucnes from one 
to the next
but if you listen closely there is an arpeggio like this:

|--8--8--------8-|
|--10---10-------|
|--9-------9-----|
|------------7---|   I think that is what's playing but I'm not sure. After the first 8 
the synthesizer
|----------------|   is doing the 4 chord progression "Dm Em F C" in whole notes).
|----------------|
  Dm  C  A E A C

#Guitar:#

Silent for 15 measures then:

meaning 2 measures of D
-------------------------  and 2 measures of E

Listen to the song to figure out was he's doing, I think he's just
playing the same chord in arpeggio with a few variances.

That's it then fade out. I'm sorry about the Synthesizer parts, I couldn't
figure them all out, considering I don't actually OWN a synthesizer, I'm doing all this 
an acoustic guitar ^^.
Hope it helps anyway!

Well, thats a thorough tab. I'm going to check it through. The synth intro thing sounds like it should be F Dm Am triads though, not Am Dm Am, but I will check out the Fmaj7 aspect of it. The way you have tabbed it doesnt make it easy to pick up the guitar and play along immediately, but its a great song (you havent said it was by ELO which really irks me) and its going to be my project to check this through and rate it. Good effort!

It's not by ELO. It's by Sweet, although it has a very ELO feel to it. It's from this album, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Level_Headed .
