Strumming
There is no strumming pattern for this song yet. and get +5 IQ
PLEASE NOTE!!!! THIS SONG IS IN HALF STEP SO DONT BE STUPID AND SAY IT
SOUNDS WRONG IN A COMMENT IF YOU ARE NOT TUNED A HALF-STEP
DOWN!!!! THIS HAS BEEN A PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT!!!


So down to business. there are only two tabs that I can find on here, and
 neither of them are perfect. one of them comes close, but close doesnt cut
it when you are doing a cover at a show. I am about 95% sure this is right.
And this is also not the regular version of the song, but the acoustic
version, so put down your Fender Strat or your Gibson SG and grab your
Indiana Scout or your Ovation and learn a song for around the campfire!

*UPDATE* I have the chords for the bridge, so you can get rid of those nasty power 
and get back to the kind of chords your grandpappy used to play.

Amin               Cadd9               F
       I'm not very good at just paying attention
Amin               Cadd9               F
       I'm not very good at remembering things that you say
Amin               Cadd9                F
       I'm not very good at pursuing redemption
Amin                        Cadd9                      F     G
       I'm not very good at concealing the hand that I play


[chorus]


Amin            Cadd9     F          G    Amin
       It's the way I am, you'll never change
       Cadd9  F      G   Amin
    The way I am, or re arrange
       Cadd9  F        G      Amin
    The way I am, just let me be
       Cadd9  F            G    Amin
    The way I am, it's the way I am

       I'm not really sure of the coming attractions
       I'm not really sure of the illusions we read on the wall
       I'm not really sure of the preaching we practice
       I'm not really sure if we notice it before we fall

[chorus]


I'm not very good at just paying attention
I'm not very good at remembering things
I'm not very good at pursuing redemption
I'm not very good at concealing the hand that I play

[bridge]
Amin     G          F
When I'm trying so hard just to beat you
Amin     G          F
I'm not really good at controlling my fate
Amin     G          F
I'm not really good at controlling my anger
Amin     G          F
I'm not really good at subduing my hate
Amin
*I'm not really good [x3]

On the first time playing this last line, you will use the Amin chord. The second time 
be the G chord, and the third will be the F chord. Sorry it took so long to get the 
fixed.


[chorus]

What's Amin? I don't like the looks of what UG has it down as. Any help?

Looks good so far though. Nice acoustic song to do. I'll rate it when I find out what Amin is.

Ah, Am, sorry not use to writing it like Amin. Sounds good though. A few minor timing errors in the verse, but you can pretty much change it as you play. Not sure if the chords are 100% coreect but they are very close and gives it a nice feel.

4 stars.
