Chords transcribed by Ian C.T. vom Saal
Questions, comments, reprehensions . . . ianvomsaal@yahoo.com

2007 Update:
Since transcribing this song, I've seen it in Guitar World Magazine,
GuitarOne Magazine, and Guitar Techniques Magazine - it looks as though
my transcription is EXACTLY the same as in the Magazines (they ALL have
the same chords as me, so I guess my transcription must be accurate :)
Cheers . . . Ian C.T. vom Saal


Nickelback - How You Remind Me
Drop-D Tuning D-A-D-G-B-E

[VERSE 1]

Csus2              Csus4/F
Never made it as a wise man
Bbsus2                 Bbsus4/Eb
I couldn't cut it as a poor man stealing
Csus2                  Csus4/F
Tired of living like a blind man
Bbsus2                      Bbsus4/Eb
I'm sick of sight without a sense of feeling
Csus2      Eb           Bb6sus2
And this is how you remind me
Csus2   Csus4/F      Bbsus2        Bbsus4/Eb
This is how you remind me of what I really am
Csus2   Csus4/F     Bb5           Eb5
This is how you remind me of what I really am


[CHORUS]

C5               Eb5         Bb5                    F5
It's not like you to say sorry, I was waiting on a different story
C5         Eb5         Bb5               F5
This time I'm mistaken for handing you a heart worth breaking
C5              Eb5            Bb5                    F5
I've been wrong, I've been down, been to the bottom of every bottle
C5              Eb5         Bb5            F5
These five words in my head scream "are we havin' fun yet?"
C5    Fsus2  Bb5            Ebsus2  Csus2   (x2)
Yeah,   yeah,   yeah,   no,   no
 

[VERSE 2]

Csus2              Csus4/F
It's not like you didn't know that
Bbsus2                      Bbsus4/Eb
I said I love you and I swear I still do
Csus2              Csus4/F
And it must have been so bad
Bbsus2                      Bbsus4/Eb
Cause livin' with me must have damn near killed you
Csus2         Csus4/F      Bbsus2     Bbsus4/Eb
And this is how you remind me of what I really am
Csus2   Csus4/F        Bb5        Eb5
This is how you remind me of what I really am
 

[CHORUS]

C5               Eb5         Bb5                    F5
It's not like you to say sorry, I was waiting on a different story
C5         Eb5         Bb5               F5
This time I'm mistaken for handing you a heart worth breaking
C5              Eb5            Bb5                    F5
I've been wrong, I've been down, been to the bottom of every bottle
C5              Eb5         Bb5            F5
These five words in my head scream "are we havin' fun yet?"
C5    Fsus2  Bb5            Ebsus2  Csus2   (x2)
Yeah,   yeah,   yeah,   no,   no

And this is how you remind me

This is how you remind me of what I really am
Csus2   Csus4/F     Bb5           Eb5

Thanks for all of the support - I just found a printed version of this song in GuitarOne magazine and it looks as though I'm right on -
Thanks again to all . . . Ian C.T. vom Saal

i agree with crazyYaz - just need to shift the bass note to get the next chord pretty piss easy, notes are right just
voicing is wrong

Also when it goes back for the build up (Middle 8/Bridge whatever you want to call it) they go
higher instead of lower, sounds like an octave up from first guess but could be wrong.
