(*) the number of times you stroke the 11th fret is unknown, but you will
be rapidly stroking it for exactly 2 seconds (beginning at bend)

Final Chorus: (Distorted)
e[-11--12------14---12-11-]
B[---------12-------------]
G[------------------------](X6)then pause for 10 seconds while doug sings
D[------------------------]"if only it were true.....I know I'd make it
A[------------------------]through"
E[------------------------]

then repeat the riff above 5X and then

e[-11--12------]
B[---------12--]
G[-------------]
D[-------------]
A[-------------]
E[-------------]

Note that the Final chorus sounds a lot like the normal chorus, except Dan plucks once 
each note change and lets it ring.

Please note that I am very precise on the timing, watch the notch(-)count
between notes.
