    I've always just figured out songs by listening to it because I can't read music nor have ever used tabs. I just follow the chord pattern....G...C...D...

    The bass line goes GGGBCEGbGG(octove higher)GBCEF#G over and over through the verses.

    Sorry if I don't explain this very well. It's easy to play but when someone asks me what I'm doing, I have to think.
     
  5. the progression is G C G D the tab is right... that is the one that i started playing it from and then i put my own twist on things.

    if you follow the tab with the repeats and it is hard to explain the coda thing. that is a musical term that makes you go from the start to the "D.S. al coda" then you go from the "DS" to the % and then from there you go to the "To Coda:" then to the spot that says CODA:

    hope that helped i can explain later respond if you need more help.
