capo version? :)
+9   October 17 2010, 11:56 pm by royce_yc |

the capo actually isn't necessary. if you are comfortable with the chords, the capo isn't needed.

for the verse one the lyric. "Why were they open" that chord should be A7.

Does anybody know how to favortie tabs?? or is that even possible?? lol, Great chords...5 stars!!
December 6 2010, 08:35 pm by isabel98 |
the Am on "Why were they open" should be A.
+5   December 10 2010, 04:49 pm by royce_yc |
yup... DebzRulz9 is right... it should be A7... it was an honest mistake.. =)

Should've known you was trouble
From the first kiss,
Had your eyes wide open.
A7 (let it ring)
Why were they open?

you can also use A instead of A7 but A7 sounds better... =)

The verse and refrain should be 7th chords apart from 'What you don't understand is' & chorus should be what they're displayed as :) hardly noticeable but just a teeny bit more accurate. ps nice tab

The pickup before the last chorus should be:

'cause you never, ever, ever did, baby!

(Dm - Dm - Bb - Bb - Am/pause)

But, darling

What's the strumming pattern, if I may ask? :)
January 6 2011, 09:39 pm by LiveAtTheGarden |
Is the strumming pattern DDUDU?

"New bad-song-away! Simply set top 100 filter to tabs instead of chords!" I use it all the time.
January 24 2011, 07:59 pm by TurboTalon |
I'm surprised by how many songs use this chord progression.

thanks for the tab update. looks solid even though I'm having trouble with Bb to F :p
June 25 2011, 04:04 pm by darkfaith93 |
I believe the actual song is played with capo on 4th fret. Play along to it you'll see it sounds exact. I can also sing better to it when its on 4th fret.
+1   June 25 2011, 04:33 pm by darkfaith93 |
Nvm, the actual song is played with no capo. If you have trouble singing that high, playing it in fourth fret allows you to sing a bit lower

just wanted to round you up to 200 votes. nice 1
October 14 2011, 12:55 pm by madbluesheep |
p.s ... could do with the addition of the intro and 7th chords in refrain and verse, but, hey ho... anyone wanting a capo version should practise barre chords and stop being a girl.... except those who are girls, in which case you should stop being so girly. If you are a child requesting a capo version, just check out the other 5 star tab and disregard the above aforementioned diatribe about girls etc because you may find it harsh.... and start crying. Good for your hand muscles!

Can some tell a more easier chord than Bb I'm new so I want to learn this btw great ong
March 10 2013, 01:27 pm by kellypl97 |
capo 5 sounds better
March 20 2013, 01:29 pm by paucolpitts2 |
Some of these chords can also be played as bar chords on the fifth or sixth fret, which makes some of the changes a bit easier - just play F and C as normal.
March 24 2013, 09:33 am by sewsmack7 |
perfect 5 stars! good job!:)
April 30 2013, 07:17 am by SonicSkyJ12 |

Gm chord is too hard :S is there any similiar chord to replace it?
October 21 2013, 02:16 pm by MrShowerhead |
I put the capo of the 4th fret and it works perfect for me!
February 1 2014, 08:59 pm by JonathanChow |
if you want it to sound the same (roughly), just transpose it down (x) half-steps and capo it at whatever (x) fret...
April 21 2014, 03:05 pm by raisingirl916.2 |
If you watch Bruno play this live, he uses all the aforementioned chords, (Dm, Am, Bb, Etc.) but he plays them all barred and starting at the fifth fret. So if you go up top of this page and use the "variations" button to scroll through each way to play the chord, find the barred version, starting at fret 5 for each chord played; Bb is the only chord that isn't played at the fifth but the sixth fret- {just look around and try playing along with the live version of the track} you'll be playing it just like he does!
Hope this helps and thanks to whomever did all the leg work!

If you press the variations button under each chord, they give you more options on how each can be played. Unfortunately, most difficult chords don't have many easier versions. It's best to just play them more until you get them down. It'll happen!
April 21 2014, 03:20 pm by raisingirl916.2 |
Play each chord barred at the fifth fret. That's how I've observed him playing it live in an acoustic set. Check it out on Youtube:

Good but you can do this:
Had your eyes wide open
Why were they open?
June 6 2014, 08:51 am by gamalkevin |
nice one.. but not correct enough..
July 5 2014, 05:14 pm by lolasong27 |
just transpose it down, whatever minus number you transpose it down to, put your capo on that fret
August 17 2014, 04:36 pm by endergirl11 |
I end I with Em, E7, then Am (transposed 5 steps down because that's how I play it) because I like playing it that way, but it sounds good without that

this is awesome, though. Sounds perfect!
March 24 2015, 05:40 pm by girardno |
THANK YOU! this was perfect!
April 4 2015, 11:50 am by herandrew2 |
It is more comfortable without the capo. People this is good advice. I'm not saying to play the song without the capo, but this my opinion. It's your choice. But just letting my opinion out.
June 16 2015, 07:12 pm by cookr12 |
you can just hit the transpose button down until you see chords you like!
July 19 2015, 07:45 am by adelinaade2si1 |
hey, sorry, which is the rhythm,please?
