Hey,
Was wondering what fingering Brian used live in under pressure for the verses.
Because the tabs i have seen online do not seem to look how he plays it live.
I also like the way he plays it as chords rather than plucking it out in the last part of verse 2 during wembley.

Cheers.

Its basically:

E - 5
B - 7
G - 7

E - 5
B - 5
G - 6

E - 3
B - 3
G - 4

E - 0
B - 2
G - 2

If that makes sense?

So its only 3 notes when he's plucking them out.
He must have echo on.

Cheers!

Bad Seed has it just about right. A 12-string electric was used for the 2 guitars on the album/original but use these chord voicings (and adding the open D string for each) this should allow you to work on the details.

Many thanks for the correct version Bad Seed :D The way I'd seen it tabbed was all over the fingerboard and nearly impossible to play >_<
