    I think that’s a truly beautiful song and all, but it just didn’t sound right to me.

    I CRY EVERY TIME
    This is such an amazing and powerful song. I play it in 4, and it sounds like the real thing. I showed my friend and by the end she was sobbing. Thank you so much for this tab on this emotional song. ?❤???????

  3. before the “tears stream, down your face” part there’s a little solo which goes like this:

    xA|-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-10-10-10-10-|
    xE|—————————————–|
    xC|—————————————–|
    xG|—————————————–|

    (11 of the 3rd fret and 4 of the 10th fret) – play for 3 bars and last bar is below

    xA|—————————————–|
    xE|-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-8-7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7—–|
    xC|—————————————–|
    xG|—————————————–|

  4. Personally, I use +4, I find it easier, and I can sing along.
