                            Saves The Day - Daybreak
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

***IMPORTANT***: This tab uses a capo on the first fret for sections I-III. At section
IV is where you take the capo off, don't worry, I have a paragraph there to explain. I 
watched many live performances and couldn't figure out a different
way. All notes are relative to the capo, where necessary.

I took this from a Word document i made, so i hope i got all the weird errors.




Section I: "Somehow You Love Me" 

The open-root section changes order a couple times, pretty easy to figure out.

Section III: "8 AM"

Arun has a really cool effect on his guitar for this part. From what i see
in videos, he does something like this, but it's hard to tell.

Section IV: "Zig Zag"
Here's where the capo comes off. I know, it's unorthodox and 
just weird, but after watching many videos and simply listening to the 
song, I can't figure out how Chris plays these parts with the capo still 
on. Maybe he has some strings differently tuned, who knows, but if anyone
can tell me how he does it that would be much appreciated.

This is a pretty nice tab for daybreak. Also the small solo parts are figured out well. You can easily play along with this and the tab meets the play of saves the day much more than the chords do. Thanks.
