Overkill
this is how the body of the song is played. the G string is there as an option which i 
use just use two fingers (preferably 1st and 4th). this should be pretty close to the one 
the scrubs episode my ovwer kill. Enjoy!

[Verse 1]

D
 I can't get to sleep
C                            C/B
I think about the    implications
D               D/C#
Of diving in too deep
C               C/B
And possibly the complications
D               D/C#
Especially at night
C               C/B
I worry over situations
D               D/C#
I know will be alright
C               C/B
Perhaps its just my imagination
