Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)


A great song, one of STP's finest, for mine. It's a beautiful song with some really nice 
sounding trademark DeLeo chords. It's also hard to find any tabs for.
There are four rhythm parts to the song, as below: verse, pre chorus, chorus and breakdown.
Listen to the song to find out exactly where each part fits and how often to play each 
part; it's a pretty straightforward structure.

I'm confident that this is mostly right, it sounds good to my ear, at least.

Here goes:


Intro/Verse (repeat):

There are slight variations of this riff, but the same chords and progression
persist throughout the verses/solo.

That's it! I've tried to tab the timing as best as possible, but as always, listen to 
the song to nail it.

Feel free to comment or e-mail with suggestions, praise, insults, etc :)

Enjoy!  \m/(^_^)\m/

Having listened to the individual guitar track to this song, I believe the pre-chorus section sounds better with the below correction. Still based around F# - A - B as in the above tab, but it sounds more true to the recording IMO (easier to play too!). Enjoy!
