Artist: Argent
Song: Hold your head up (Single version)
Composers: Rod Argent & Chris White

Tabbed by: DJ
2nd June 2013

Dsus2   = xx0230    F6add4  = xx0566    G     = 320033
D4      = xx0233    E4      = 022200    E7    = 020100
D       = xx0232    E       = 022100    Cadd2 = x30010
D9sus4  = xx0553    D *     = xx0775    Amaj4 = x00220
D7sus4  = xx0533    C/D     = xx0553
D13sus2 = xx0557    A#/D    = xx0331
D7sus2  = xx0555    G#aug/D = xx0110

Alternative shapes for the chorus chords could be from:
    Dsus2 = x57755 to  F6add4 = xx0566
or: Dsus2 = xx0230 to  F6add4 = 100311
Any combination should work

The first few bars tabbed are a simulation of the keyboards and bass intro
before the guitar riff comes in

Has anyone figured out the chords for the bridge?

Sorry, but I really don't understand what you mean, thamlett.If you play through my tab the chords for the bridge section are right there, and I always include a chord legend to show how I play those chords. This is the complete song to my knowledge, as I never tab only sections of songs.
