Title:       We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together
Artist:      Taylor Swift
Album:       Red
Transcriber: Ezyo Pourchez
E-mail:      dj.dusky91@hotmail.com

[Preface]
Here's my take on how to play Taylor Swift's new single.
I've listened to it in great detail but also added my own interpretation of certain sections.

Carefully read the instructions please!
For questions please send me a message or contact me by e-mail.

Have fun!

[start]

Standard tuning, no capo, key of G.

Chords:
If you're playing the riff:
Csus2: x35533
G:     32003x
Dsus4: xx0233
Em:    022000

If you're NOT plauing the riff i.e. strumming:
Cadd9: x32033 (will replace Csus2!)
G:     320033
D:     xx0232 (can replace Dsus4)
Em7:   022033 (can replace Em)

-----

Riff too difficult? You can play this INSTEAD of the riff:
D = downstrum
m = mute (NOT palm-mute)
Cadd9   G       D       Em7
D D m   D D m   D D m   D D m
1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 &

Guitar riff:
           hit (body)           mute        
     Csus2              G                   
E||--3-----x--------------------x----------|

     1  &  2     &      3   &   4      &

        hit (body)            mute         
  Dsus4              Em

--x-----x---------------------x----------||
--x-----x------------0--------x----------||
  1  &  2     &      3    &   4      &
