Album : RED

                              ******************UPDATE*********************
Alternate Tuning
                              I changed the A# chord into Bb and I replaced
Tune down half step          some chord at some part. I had liked to do some
                          Variation on the C becomes C* [032013] and Dont forget
Down  -   Up             to tune down your guitar Because I didn’t use a standard.
                                               Thanks
eb-Bb-Gb_Db-Ab-Eb

note: this is my first tab, I think I tryin to make another version bout this song 
with changing the tuning. Im just figure it out by myself, I think my tabs is 
correct but it has tuned down. So enjoyed it.. Give me the correction if you’re 
doubt about this tab.

Chorus
                Bb                    F
Losing him was blue, like Id never known
                 C
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
                    Bb                   Dm
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody
           C
You never met

                    Bb
But loving him was red
          Dm         C*
Re ee ed, re ee ed, re ee ed
                Bb
Loving him was red
           Dm         C*
Re ee ed, re ee ed, re ee ed


Verse 2
                        Bb                     F
Touching him was like, realizing all you ever wanted
                    C
Was right there in front of you
                        Bb                        F
Memorizing him was as, easy as knowing all the words
                      C
To your old favourite song


(Palm Mute & Strum Part) ~Use the Barre Chord for easier play
                            Bb
Fighting with him was like trying to solve a
               Dm5                          C5
Crossword and realizing theres no right answer

(Strumming Part)
                         Bb                      F
Regretting him was like wishing you never found love
                          C5
But love could be that strong

Chorus
                Bb                    F
Losing him was blue, like Id never known
                 C
Missing him was dark grey, all alone
                    Bb                       Dm
Forgetting him was like trying to know somebody
           C
You never met

                    Bb
But loving him was red
           Dm           C*
Re ee ed, re ee ed, Oh red, re ee ed
        Bb       Dm
Burning re...ee...ed
C*
Re..ee..ed

Bridge
                          Bb               C5
Remembering him comes in flashbacks and echos
                     D5             E5  F5
Telling myself its time now gotta let go
                    Bb
But moving on from him is impossible
     Am                       C5
When I still see it all in my, head


Solo
             Bb     F   C
