WISHLIST-Live (Perth, Australia, 23rd Feb, 2003)

**NB: The Wishlist tab by Pat Giles (@ www.olga.net) was used for some of this tab.**

Standard tuning - low to hi - EADGBE

Note: The lead guitar parts can be played several different ways on
      various parts of the fretboard.

Chords:
**NB: I think it sounds better if you use barrel/power chords, so i will list them as well.**

C:  X32010   or c:  335533   }Instead of just strumming the chords, try picking
F:  X33211   or F:  133211   }a few notes (strings) in between. This is not 
G:  320033   or G:  355433   }essential but i think it gives a nicer sound.  
                             }Just pick what ever sounds nicest to you!!
Tab notations:

h = hammer-on
p = pull-off
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
~ = hold/shake note

The intro/basic rhythm for the verses is this:

E:---------------------------------------------------------------

I wish I was a neutron bomb, for once I could go off,

I wish I was a sacrifice, but somehow still lived on,

I wish i was a sentimental orniment you hung on,

The Christmas tree, I wish I was the star that went on top,

I wish I was the radio song, the one that you turned up, 

I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish, 

I guess it never stops.
