* Tune down half a step

[Intro]

* This has to be the hardest part of the song to learn, but once you

memorize the chord formations it's simple.

* I made a chord chart, although these are just reminders of where to

place your fingers at certain parts and you're not supposed to

actually play the chords.

* You'll really have to listen to the song to get it right.
