This has the live version and track notes mixed together so its not perfectly matched
to the song because IMAGINE DRAGONS plays it a little differently live, but the base is
both the same so you can mess around with it to make it work. I added a couple extra 
things in there to :)

Thanks to evilbeast3 for the optional lead chorus

On the lead guitar part, it may be easier for some (like me) to play the 9th fret listed as the same note on the next string down, for instance: the 9th fret on the high e string is the same note as the 14th fret on the B string, and the 9th fret on the B string is the same note as the 13th fret on the G string
