Waves roll in my thoughts
Hold, tight the ring
    B       C

Great tab, just not sure about that B chord, and how do you play those Em varriations?

Thank you,...Did you think on Bb - that is a B flat major , or A sharp major (A#) however do you call that chord.

Here is the explanation of that, and Em var. chords

Chords: EADGBe --> Strings
Em#5add9 - xx2012
Em#5 - xx2013
Bb(A#) - x13331

X means that you dont strum the string

Play along the song to get it , its simple

sounds completely wrong, acustic version is totally different than described here. just check mtv unplugged to hear that these chords are wrong
