Tabbed by Drew Whitaker

"Forever Young"
by Youth Group
(originally by Alphaville)

Standard Tuning

I had this tabbed out earlier, then I saw the versions that were already up and I'm 
sure mine is more accurate.  Three guitars are playing throughout the whole song.  I've 
out parts of each.  Everything but the rhythm you can kinda improv and play around with.

[Intro]
During this and kinda through the whole song there should be another guitar using a 
effect that plays the B string something like
--7-----0-----2-----0-----2-----7 and so on.  There's too much going on during the 
for me to hear it.

  Gt.1
e|------2-------2---2---2-------2-------2---2---2----------------------------|
B|------------------------------------------------------4-------4---4---4----|
G|-4-4-----4-4----4---4----4-4-----4-4----4---4----1-1-----1-1----1---1------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|


e|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
B|------4-------4----4---4-------4-------4-------4-------4---4---4------4----|
G|------------------------------------------1-1-----1-1----1---1-------------|
D|-2-2-----2-2-----2---2----4-4-----4-4-----------------------------2-2------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Gt. 1

G|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
D|-2-2-----2---2----2-2-----2-2-----2---2------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
E|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

  Gt. 2

B|--------------------------------2------2-----------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------/4----4-4-------------------------------------|
D|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|
A|---------------------------------------------------------------------------|

For the 1st verse that whole thing is repeated a couple of times, minus the little 
2 part.  For the second verse and throughout the song they play around with that scale
while guitar plays the bar chords, adding notes here and there, but that's pretty mucð
what the intro is.  Listen to the song for timing, because I don't feel like showing
where it with the words.  It should be self-explanatory.

[Verse]
B   G#m    F#   G#m

[Chorus]
B         F#          G#m           E
Forever young, I wanna be forever young,
F#                  G#m            E
Do you really wanna live forever? forever, forever

[Solo]
Play the chorus chords twice through.  And I don't feel like tabbing out that solo right 
so maybe for another time.

I play fret 4 on the G and 7 on the B, ten when you need to change you just move both fingers down three frets, I think thats what they play because you can hear the slide on the song.

I liked that.

I add to F# to the end of the Chorus so i can play it over and over :}
