how do u play boulevard of broken dreams on acoustic without a capo? and that is needed on the tabs that i hv seen.
You don't need a capo, it sounds fine, and it's just power chords. It's the first song I learned to play with power chords.

And to the above: triple posting
The song is capoed 1st fret but it'll be fine without it - if the tab/chord sheet was written assuming a capo, just play the same chords without it. It will be one step lower - E, G, Dsus2, Asus2, E for the verse if I remember right.
