                                    SLIDE by THE GOO GOO DOLLS

STANDARD TUNING with open d ( E A D G B d )
CAPO ON 1ST FRET


CHORDS :   Em - 022030   D   - xx0230   C9 - x32030
           G  - 320030   G/B - x20030

*** We all know The Goo Goo Dolls used a weird alternate tuning of D# A# D# G# G# 
d# for this song--something which is tedious to do & very time-consuming. You 
might also break a couple of strings in the process.  In short, it's a headache to 
play!  So I came up with this tab to make our lives a whole lot easier. Just drop 
the 1st (e) string to D and you're good to go.

If you love the song so much but too lazy to dabble with the machine heads then I 
guess you should opt for my version.

Yea. I forgot to note that on the tab. My apologies. If only there's a way I could edit it.

you forgot the G in the last chorus, sucks that UG doesn't let you edit things you just miss or forget. Great tab though
