Lay Me Down:

This is a longer one and perhaps a bit tricky to follow,I've thrown
in some asterix to explain some bits,  listen to the rhythm to be
sure. Two guitars over the verses. One (Riff 1) sounds like a load
of delay and general effects, the other(Riff 2) is fairly clean if
not acoustic

Verses:

Riff 1

e|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-4-4-4-4-----------------------------------|
B|---------------------------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7*--|
G|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-------------------------------------------------------------------|

e|5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7---------------9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9--|
B|--------------------------------7-7-7-7-7-7-7--------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

*The second time this riff is played these three notes(B7) aren't
played,it goes down to 4 on B instead

Riff 2

e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4-|
D|-7---7---7---7---7---7/6-6---6---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---|
A|-5---5---5---5---5---5---5---5---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---2---|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

Chorus:

The main riff is played a couple of times then the second part
feeds back into the verse

e|-------------------------------------9-9-9-9-7-7-----------------|
B|--7-7-7-9--9-9-9/10-10-9-9-7-7-(x?)-7-7--------------------------|
G|-7-7-7-7--7-7-7----7--7-7-7-7-------7-7--------------------------|
D|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

There's an acoustic guitar under there somewhere. Not sure exactly
what it's playing but these work, rhythm is hard to pick out but
they follow the melody:

e|-------|
B|-------|
G|-7--6--|
D|-7--6--|
A|-5--4--|
E|-------|

One more verse and chorus which leads into the minute or so with
Nathan repeating, "Laaaaay Meeeeee Doooooown". The rhythm is tricky
but give it a listen and it should be clear


e|------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-7-7-7-7--9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-9-9-9-5-5-5-5-5-5-|(*)
G|------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|


e|------------------------------------------------7-7-7-9-9-9-9-9-9-|
B|-7-7-7-7--9-9-9-9--9-9-9-9-10-10-10-10-10-10-10-------------------|
G|------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|------------------------------------------------------------------|

* Finish on this note leading into the outro:

This part is two guitars but I'll put it on the same tab, the notes
on the B an e strings are one guitar and the others are the other
guitar funnily enough. I'm not entirely sure about the notes on the
lower strings but its the ebst I could pick out after a good while
trying

e|----------------------------------------7---9--------------------|
B|------7-7-----------9-9----------10------------------------------|
G|-----4------4------4-----4------4-----4-----4-4-4-4--------------|
D|---4---4---4-4---4---4--4-4---4---4--4-4---4--4-4-4--------------|
A|-2-------2-----0-------0----2-------2-----2-------2--------------|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|

It's all wrong but it's good because if you play every note up 1 it's right. You just don't have the tuning right. 3 stars
