Goo Goo Dolls - Slide

Well, its been a long time since probably has done a tab justice. 
I spent long hours on this song, and I'm 10000 % sure this is the way that 
Rzeznik plays it, if not even better. 

Tabber: Jake Chen (YES ME!)

Tuning: DADGDD 

e - Down to D
B - Up to D (if it snaps, replace the string with a high E string) 
G - keep the same
D - keep the same
A - keep the same
E - Down to D

The song is also played in D#A#D#G#D#D# standard, so just tune it 
to the DADGDD and put a capo on 1 st fret.

[Verse]

Figure out the strumming pattern.... its one heavy stroke to get
the chord started then constant strumming until the next chord, 
but repeat about twice more for the C chord.

[Verse 2]

Play the whole thing again except don't play Riff 1 before he sings
"I wanna wake up where you are" just end on the C chord. Then play 
Riff 1 after he sings "I won't say anything at all"
