-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: FlipE

repeat G, Cadd9, D and Dsus after the 1st chorus in the song.

Just continue picking this whole part (3x i think) till the palm-muting part after the
He does the strummed chorus one more time and then you're done! This is the MTV live 
of Wordplay, so it might not sound exactly like the cd version, but it's EXTREMELY
Have fun!
