                             THE ONLY EXCEPTION - Paramore
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: rockett97    
Email: rockett97@hotmail.com

Tuning: Standard

I found out no one had tabbed the exact chords the way Paramore plays it, 
so I figured I’d give it a go. 
I personally think these are 100% correct (I am sure the lead part is, 
the 2d part I’m not completely sure about, but its near perfected..)

Have fun, don’t forget to RATE AND COMMENT!!!

(I tabbed both the lead as the 2d guitar part!!)

Lead.

Strumming pattern is mostly just d-dudu 
(*** for every little ‘strumming part of d-dudu I put down one chord in the following tab. 
So: 4 times the same chords means you have to play four sessions of d-dudu)

Hey the tuning you put down is incorrect.

The way Paramore plays it is with their guitars tuned from low to high: E,A,D,G,B,D#.

Just thought I'd let you know, oh and when it's tuned like I have stated above, the lead part is played

D#|---------------------|
B |----------10-10--9-9-|
G |-8-8-8-8--11-11--8-8-|
D |-9-9-9-9--11-11--9-9-|
A |-9-9-9-9--9--9---7-7-|
E |-7-7-7-7--x--x---x-x-|

But you were right about the second guitar part. other than that it was pretty good.
