	  		Standard Tuning 
 
Intro Riff for ELECTRIC

Now the acoustic immediately jumps in with this chord progression: 
 
ACOUSTIC 
    D          Cadd9 
e|--2------------3-----|  
B|--3------------3-----| 
G|--2------------0-----|REPEAT the chords 
D|--0------------2-----| 
A|--0------------3-----| 
E|---------------------| 
 
Then Electric JOINS the Acoustic by playing the same chords, D and Cadd9. 
But, the Electric uses Wah-Wah.  They play D & Cadd9 twice, like above. 
 
The Electric drops out and the Acoustic plays.  During the second time this 
is played, the lyrics come in, "Ev'rybody listen to me...".   
 
ACOUSTIC 
    D  Dsus2  D   Cadd9  
e|--2---2-0---2--3---3---3--3--3---| This is played about 11 times. 
B|--3---3-3---3--3---3---3--3--3---| When the lyrics get to "I've been 
G|--2---2------------0---0--0--0---| lost now days uncounted...." this  
D|--0----------------2---2--2--2---| chord progression is played by both  
A|--0----------------3---3--3--3---| guitars about 25 times.  But, keep  
E|---------------------------------| the Electric's volume down. 
 
There are two verses with the chords above.  One starts with "I've been  
lost now..." and the other with "If you return me to my home port...". 
I think that you play the chord progression above about 9 times for EACH 
verse and then an additional 8 times with no singing. 
 
Now there is the key change             Dm    Bb    F     A       
and the bass plays 2 measures       e|--1--|-(3)-|--1--|--0--| 
of that cool part with no     B|--3--|--3--|--1--|--2--| 
other guitars.  Then these          G|--2--|--3--|--2--|--2--| 
chords are played:                  D|--0--|--3--|--3--|--2--| 
                    A|--0--|--1--|--3--|--0--| 
        E|-----|-----|--1--|-----| 
  
It goes like this: 
------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
  Dm   Bb    Dm    Bb      Dm 
    1. Am I in my cabin  dreaming, 
    2. -------------------------- 
------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    Bb F   A             A 
   ------------------------ 
. 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------                                          
 
Then the Acoustic plays D and Cadd9 (just sustaining the chords, not 
strumming) twice, like after the lead in the beginning. 
After that the Electric comes in playing the same thing, but with Wah-Wah,  
playing those same chords twice. 
And then back to the D Dsus2 D Cadd9 strumming pattern for about 24 times. 
During this the lyrics go "I can feel the hand, of a stranger...". 
 
Now the guitars play these two chords: 
    D   Csus2       D    F6/C 
e|--2--|--3--|REPEAT the chords  e|--2--|--10--| 
B|--3--|--3--|     5 times   B|--3--|--10--| 
G|--2--|--5--|   G|--2--|--10--| 
D|--0--|--5--|        D|--0--|--10--| 
A|--0--|--3--| Then play this    A|--0--|------| 
E|-----|-----|      once:   E|-----|------| 
 
Now, for the cool guitar part. 
In this part the Acoustic sustains chords while the Electric plays a  
lead-type riff.  This is the main riff: 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    D   D  D 
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
G|----------7----7-----------------------7---7-------7------------7-------| 
D|--------7-9----7-----------------------7---7-------7--9--7------7-------| 
A|-(5)*---------------9---9\7---5---7-9----------9------------9-------9---| 
E|------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
      *Play cue note on repeats 
--------------------------------------------------------------------------- 
    Csus2     Csus2 Csus2 
e|------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
B|------------------------------------------------------------------------| 
G|----5---5------------------------------5---5----------------------------| 
D|--5-7---5----------------------------5-7---5----------------------------| 
A|-----------7\5---3-----5-5-5-3-----------------7\5---3-----5-5-5-3------| 
E|-------------------------------5-----------------------------------5----| 
 
---------------------------------------------------------------------------  
Play this about 4 times, but the 3rd and 4th times Acoustic substitutes 
this: 
 
e|------5--5--5-------------5--5--5----------| 
B|------7--7--7-------------7--7--7----------| 
G|------7--7--7-------------7--7--7----------| 
D|--7-------------7--7--7-------------7--7---| 
A|--5-------------5--5--5-------------5--5---| 
E|-------------------------------------------| 
 
e|------3--3--3-------------3--3--3----------| 
B|------3--3--3-------------3--3--3----------| 
G|------5--5--5-------------5--5--5----------| 
D|--5-------------5--5--5-------------5--5---| 
A|--3-------------3--3--3-------------3--3---| 
E|-------------------------------------------| 
 
For the rest of the time the Acoustic plays these chords with the Electric 
playing this: 
 
     Csus2 
e|-----------------------------------|------------------------------------| 
B|-----------------------------------|------------------------------------| 
G|---5---5------------5---5----------|----5---5------------5---5----------| 
D|-5-7---5----------5-7---5----------|--5-7---5----------5-7---5----------|
