Alright this was the best i could do. there are to ways to play it. you can play it with
higher tone where it is on the keyboard, or you can play it with the actual chords. i
both so you can choose. it's a great song.
enjoy!

(standard tuning)
this is the actual guitar part starting on F

~ - use a light vibratto

E|------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------5----------------------------5--------------|
D|--3~--3~--3~----5----3---5-----3~--3~--3~----5----3---5-----|
A|--3~--3~--3~----3----3---5-----3~--3~--3~----3----3---5-----|
E|--1~--1~--1~---------1---3-----1~--1~--1~---------1---3-----|


E|------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------------|
G|----------------8----------------------------8--------------|
D|--6~--6~--6~----8----6---8-----6~--6~--6~----8----6---8-----|
A|--6~--6~--6~----6----6---8-----6~--6~--6~----6----6---8-----|
E|--4~--4~--4~---------4---6-----4~--4~--4~---------4---6-----|


this is the same intro, only where it is played on the keyboard, starting
on C

the strum pattern in down, up, down, up on the C and on the D sharp, the D,
G,F, and A shard is just a down stroke


E|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------8----------------8--------------|
G|--5-5-5-5---7---5-5-5-5---7---5-5-5-5---7--7--5--7--------|  play this
D|--5-5-5-5---7---5-5-5-5---5---5-5-5-5---7--5--5--7--------|    twice
A|--3-3-3-3---5---3-3-3-3-------3-3-3-3---5-----3--5--------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

then it switches to


E|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|---------------------------11------------------11---------|
G|--8-8-8-8---10---8-8-8-8---10---8-8-8-8---10---10---8--10-|  play this
D|--8-8-8-8---10---8-8-8-8----8---8-8-8-8---10----8---8--10-|    twice
A|--6-6-6-6----8---6-6-6-6--------6-6-6-6----8--------6---8-|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|


verse 1

this is where the intro ends. to get that whooshing sound before he plays
the chord just do a pick slide.


E|--------------|
B|--------------|
G|------6-------|   3x
D|------6-------|
A|------4-------|
E|--------------|

  play here   -   welcome to the grand illusion
   here       -   come on in and see whats happenin'
   and here   -   pay the price get your tickets for the show

then he does this

E|-------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------|   play this
D|---6-----6-6------6-6------6----4----------------|     twice
A|---6-----6-4------6-6------6-------8--6--4-------|
E|---4-----4-4------4-4------4---------------------|

after playing this twice, repeat the verse
(the stage is set the band starts playin'....)

then repeat the part right above before entering the chorus
theres not much to the chorus
i have it starting where they say


dont be fooled by the radio....


E|---4/6--------4--6--4--------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------6---------6---------6-----8---6-6---8----|
A|------------------------------6---4-6---6---4-6---6-----8---6-6---8----|
E|------------------------------4---------4---------4-----6---4-4---6----|

E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---8-----8-6-8-------------8--6--6-5---------------6/8--8-------6------|
D|---8-----------------------------------------------6/8--8-------6------|
A|---6------------6-4-6-------------------6----------4/6--6-------4------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------------|


then after this it goes into
so if you think your life is....complete confusion.....

after he says:
cause deep inside we're all the same, the break before the solo goes:


E|-------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------2-----------------------------------2-4-2--------------|
G|--3--3-----3-1-3------3--3------------3--3-----3-1-3---------3----8-6--3-|
D|--3--3-----3-1-3------3--3----3---6---3--3-----3-1-3---------3----8-6--3-|
A|--1--1----------------1--1----3---6---1--1-------------------------------|
E|------------------------------1---4--------------------------------------|


This repeats through the solo. REPEATED 3x

Then it goes back to the intro
again, you can play either the actual guitar part or the keyboard part.
they're both up at the top.

the little riff he plays before it goes back into the chorus goes

like this:


E|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------------------------|
D|------6--4----------------|
A|------------8--6--4-------|
E|---4----------------------|

then theres the second solo, which im not too sure of, but im sure you can figure it
if not you can just make something up. be creative!!

then it goes back to the verse


E|-----------------|
B|-----------------|
G|-------6---------|   3x
D|-------6---------|
A|-------4---------|
E|-----------------|


for the outro, its just the intro, only the guitar plays where the keyboard did before


E|----------------------------------------------------------|
B|------------------9--------------------------9------------|
G|---6----6----6----8--6--8-----6----6----6----8--6--8------|
D|---6----6----6----6--6--8-----6----6----6----6--6--8------|
A|---4----4----4-------4--6-----4----4----4-------4--6------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------|

  it repeats like this and fades out, it doesn't move up a whole step
  in the outro.

thats it! it's a great tune.
