                I'm Alive - Electric Light Orchestra
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: maguri
Tuning: Standard

Electric Light Orchestra
I'm Alive (1980)
(Jeff Lynne)

From: "Xanadu"

The change in the verses between the two diminished chords (at the beginning 
"Edim" and "C#dim") is due to the root that is played by the bass on the ELO 
recording. It is not necessary to change here as the two chords are 
basically the same, just different inversions of the same notes ("Edim": 
E-Bb-C#-G and "C#dim": C#-G-Bb-E). I still think the change sounds nice.
