                             Every Breath You Take - Sting / Police
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Gitarded
Tuning: standard

This is my take on this song.  There's several really hard 
tabs for this out here and I think this one is a lot easier.
It's not "right" and I'm not Sting.  It's just my way of doing it.

Once you get the feel for this flow you'll add your own extra notes for flavor.


The verse chords are A, F#m, D and E

   
voice the A-chord like this      and play it like this, even notes, non stop
e|--------0--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------2--------------------------------2-----------------------------|
G|--------4----------------------------4-----4---4-----------------------|
D|--------2--------------------------2---2-----2-------------------------|
A|--------0------------------------0-------------------------------------|
E|--------0--------------------------------------------------------------|

voice the F#m-chord like this      and play it like this, even notes, non stop
e|--------2--------------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------2--------------------------------------------------------------|
G|--------2--------------------------------2-----------------------------|
D|--------4----------------------------4----4---4------------------------|
A|--------4--------------------------4---4----4--------------------------|
E|--------2------------------------2-------------------------------------|

Voice the D regular     and play like this, even notes, but let last two ring a bit
e|--------2----------------------------------2---------------------------|
B|--------3------------------------------3-----3-------------------------|
G|--------2----------------------------2---3-----------------------------|
D|--------0--------------------------0-----------------------------------|
A|--------0--------------------------------------------------------------|
E|--------0--------------------------------------------------------------|

Voice the E regular like    and play like this, even notes, but let last two ring a bit
e|--------0---------------------------------0----------------------------|
B|--------0-----------------------------------0--------------------------|
G|--------1-----------------------------1--------------------------------|
D|--------2---------------------------2---2------------------------------|
A|--------2-------------------------2--------------------- back to the A-|
E|--------0--------------------------------------------------------------|

The Chorus is D, C, A, B, E  (the C is just a couple of beats)
I chunk strum these with all down strokes and a little muted.

I find the bridge works better with F and G.

F                       G
Since you're gone, I .....
