[PAUSE] ( oh no. no no)

REPEAT [CHORUS]  with Fill G2 and fade

I have seen this song played in standard tuning in A which makes the lead a lot easier
to play but when compared to original song, drop D is the correct tuning. Another way
you can play it in standard tuning is open chords D, G, and A. Anyways, I hope this helped.
