It's not right, try Bm, F#, D, Em, F#m

It's totaly wrong, I agree with In Black Flames.

Throw a capo on the second fret and you're good.

People are just saying 'copy the travis version', but I think this one's better. NimbleElephant (!) is right - capo 2nd fret and you're golden. Perhaps use xx0230 instead of Dm, I can't remember what it's called but it sounds good with a bit of open e at the end.
Great tab, with capo 2nd.

the song plays great with CAPO on 2nd.

Does anyone have a suggested strumming pattern for this song?
July 12 2009, 05:44 am by Rosicchi |
the song plays great with CAPO on 2nd. i agree

no, I disagree. Dont use the capo, just play it in Bm.

Bm F# D E F#

I don't think F#m sounds right either.

The nice thing about this is the low E chord... sounds better

capo on 2nd makes it bm, you nut.

Wow very mixed opinions on this. I think it's fine. It's just in a different pitch but it works absolutely fine.

I think that this version works well with Matt Cardle's version on British X-Factor. Epic version of song.

Capo on THIRD fret. Sounds like its in C minor to me.
March 12 2013, 02:59 pm by woody0606 |
Bloody hell. Stop bitching. This is fine, stick a capo on where ever you like and get on with it...

transpose it two halfsteps higher, then it is perfect!
June 6 2013, 03:51 am by Lolcohol |
Either put on a capo, or play it like Black Flame suggested. It's the same progression, just a tone higher. :) Thanks
June 6 2013, 03:53 am by Lolcohol |
Oh and by the way, like breaktheice said, the capo is on the third fret, not the second.

Sorry for all the comments. Here's my corrections. Yours is almost correct, but there are some differences:

Intro:

G Am (Just follow rhythm of the song - this intro progression actually leads into each new line of the verse)

Oh baby, baby
E C
How was I supposed to know
Dm E (This is a major chord, not minor) G Am
That something wasn't right here
Am
Oh baby baby
E C
I shouldn't have let you go
Dm E G Am
And now you're out of sight, yeah
Am E
Show me, how you want it to be
C
Tell me baby
Dm E G Am
'Cause I need to know now what we've got

Chorus:
Am E
My loneliness is killing me
C Dm
I must confess, I still believe
Am E
When I'm not with you I lose my mind
F C (This is another change)
Give me a sign
Dm E
G Am (played on piano)
Hit me baby one more time

This should be correct. What the hell am I doing on UG fixing up a Britney Spears song? Haha. This is a low.

Just one note - the G Am progression that I spoke about isn't really all that necessary unless you're playing with a band. If you can somehow fit it in on solo guitar, try it, but the E sounds better by itself. :)

Transpose it +3 = original scale

Am = Cm and so on..

It sounds better with a capo 2
