  1. Am I the only one who looked this up to play mine diamonds bc it works

  2. Leilaniirene

    try -3 for a nice moody sad girl time

  3. Lol the lyrics go “in a day or two…” cuz in the lyrics up there u didn’t write them :/

  4. ElPolloDiablos

    I’d play that 4442 Emaj for the verses, and the suggested 1402 Emaj for the chorus. Gives better flow ;)

    @NoahUkeGuy – Riffs are always played from left to right (over all the strings), i.e. the vertical lines represent time, so imagine there’s on line going over all for strings represented in the riff and it moves as you progress through the riff – whenever that line encounters a number, you strike that fret of the string it’s on. Whether it’s ascending or descending depends entirely on what number the line hits next.

  5. TacoBellSaga

    Try Playing E7 instead of E. it’s easier.

  6. NoahUkeGuy

    WTH!!! How the heck are you supposed to play the riffs!?!? Do i play them from top to bottom or something!?!?

    • I believe left to right, but I could be wrong, I haven’t tried playing it yet

    • Imlitheal

      Do It This Way:

      [(A)-9-9———————–11-11-12-14-12-12–12-7-5-9-9-9-7-7-9-7-:]
      [(E)—–10———-12-12-12——————————————:]
      [(C)———-11-11—————————————————-:]
      [(G)——————————————————————-:]
