                            E=MC2 (Acoustic) - Ayreon
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: IanC89

Tuning: Standard

******************************************************

The basic verse follows a simple augmentation:


e|--3--3--5--3--3--3--5--3---------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The actual chord progression sounds like this, which is not very easy to play, but is 
right sound if you wish

to play about with tuning to make it easier. It is effectively an F, with the bass going 
to E to Eb to D with the

above augmentation happening.

e|--3--3--5--3--3--3--5--3--3--3--5--3---------------------------------------|
B|--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1--1---------------------------------------|
G|--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2--2---------------------------------------|
D|--3--3--3--3--2--2--2--2--1--0--0--0---------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

The chorus is a lot simpler and is just : Am Em Gm Dm


Am                 Em
   This may be our last chance
   Gm                 Dm
If we want man to survive
Am             Em
   A mirror reflection
Gm                         Dm
Show them our world as it dies
Am                 Em
   Cut through the barrier
    Gm                 Dm
And do what no one has dared
Am                  Em
   Let's break the equation
Gm         Dm
E  =  M  C Squared


I hope that is satisfactory. I love Ayreon and I think it is criminal that there are no 
tabs available.

According to the release party video, Arjen plays it with a capo on the 5th fret. It looks/sounds to me like the verse is played like as follows, with the right hand deciding when to play the B and high E string rather than the left hand moving (which can be tricky)


-0-0-0-0-
-3-3-3-3-
-0-0-0-2-
-0-0-0-0-
-3-2-1-0-

The chorus chords (which are absolutely right) become Em, Bm, Dm and Am with the capo
