on playin it until Glen sings ‘Santa Maria’

Verse 2 is played the same as verse 1 except it’s a little bit shorter
 And it starts as soon as glen starts singing again… The 2nd chorus is also the same....

After that comes the build up

Build Up:

Guitar: G
G|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------|

You can play this on the fifth fret of the D string also… but I recommend the open 
because the build up gets steadily louder( hence build up :D) giving you a free hand for 
adjustment

Loud part (Distortion):

Guitar:                 G

G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-| X2
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

*note that that G is 4 bars long unlike everything else in the song which is 2 bars

The song continues from ther with

Guitar:                    E minor

G|----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

2 bars of G
2 bars of E
2 bars of G etc etc
Until glen sings Santa Maria…

G|----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3|

The Santa Maria bit is done twice until the keyboard comes in(I think its keyboard… 
it is.. its clearly audible over everthing else)

At this point it goes into the verse and plays the verse until the end…..

This isn’t the first song I have tabbed but it’s the first one I have submitted to UG… 
an easy song to play… relaxing at the start and full of power and energy at the end..
