outro solo: Bb         Gm7  |  Ab            F9sus4
            Bb         Gm7  |  Ab            F9sus4            
            Bb         Gm7  |  Ab            F9sus4
             and if i die today
 
Bb:     x 1 3 3 3 1
Gm7:    3 5 3 3 3 3
Ab:     4 6 6 5 4 4
F9sus4: 1 3 1 3 1 3
Bb/D:   x 5 3 3 6 x
F:      1 3 3 2 1 1
F7:     1 3 1 2 1 1
Em7:    0 2 2 0 3 0
D:      x x 0 2 3 2
C:      x 3 2 0 1 0
Eb:     x 6 8 8 8 x
Em:     x x 2 4 5 3
G:      3 2 0 0 0 3
 
of note: of course, this is a piano song, so this is, at best, 
a bad hack transcription. the F7 isn't the usual F-flatted 7th that 
you might see ( 0 3 3 2 1 0 ) so be careful with that.

i play the intro Bb by hitting the three higher strings first, then the
root, like this:

E|                   1 
b|  3     3  3 /4    1
G|  3     3  4 /5    2
D|  3     3  5 /6    3
A|     1     5 /6    3
E|     1     3 /4    1      

(altho the song doesn't have that low F (E string, first fret,) i play it
in unison with the Bb to make it sound thicker.)

-D.
