Tuning: Double Drop D (DADGBd)

Tune E to D
     E to D

I’m pretty tired of dropping down to BDDDDD to play this song, so I thought I’d tab it 
in an easier to get to tuning… with no popping strings (and if you DO pop one… that’s 
sad).

Verse

	D       Dsus2       G5
And I’d give up forever to touch you
	 Bm7	       Asus4	   G5
‘Cause I know that you feel me somehow
           D	     Dsus2	  G5
You’re the closest to Heaven that I’ll ever be
      Bm7	    Asus4	  G5
And I don’t want to go home right now
       D	 Dsus2	       G5
‘Cause all I can taste is this moment
    Bm7	      Asus4	      G5
And all I can breathe is your life
    D	      Dsus2      G5
And sooner or later it’s over
       Bm7	     Asus4	G5
I just don’t want to miss you tonight

Chorus
      Bm7     	     Asus4    G5
And I don’t want the world to see me
	 Bm7		  Asus4	      G5
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
     Bm7	  Asus4	      G5
When everything’s meant to be broken
       Bm7	   Asus4      G5
I just want you to know who I am

Bm7 Bm9 G5 x 2

Verse
	D	        Dsus2		 G5
And you can’t fight the tears that ain’t commin’
       Bm7	 Asus4	       G5
Or the moment of truth in your lies
     D		Dsus2	       G5
When everything feels like the movies
	  Bm7		Asus4       G5
Yeah, you bleed just to know you’re alive

Chorus
      Bm7     	     Asus4    G5
And I don’t want the world to see me
	 Bm7		  Asus4	      G5
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
     Bm7	  Asus4	      G5
When everything’s meant to be broken
       Bm7	   Asus4      G5
I just want you to know who I am

*…YOU figure out the solo…*

Chorus
      Bm7     	     Asus4    G5
And I don’t want the world to see me
	 Bm7		  Asus4	      G5
‘Cause I don’t think that they’d understand
     Bm7	  Asus4	      G5
When everything’s meant to be broken
       Bm7	   Asus4      G5
I just want you to know who I am

Make up a fun little ending.

By the way, don’t leave me half-assed ratings with comments that go, “Oh em ef gee!! 
is wr0ng!!1one!” …especially if you don’t know what the hell an augmented third is; because if
you don’t, I recommend you go read a book instead of making music.

Very nice, sounds good...I was looking for a simple alternate tuning for this song, easy in-easy out when sitting in front of a group of people. This fits the bill.
Thanks

Keep em coming.

I'm rather sick of people giving low ratings because they don't understand music. It isn't an attack on musicians, it's just a rather suggestive comment on how most "musicians" now don't know much about music at all. I apologize if you're offended but people have to realize that ignorance is not bliss.
