I know it's not how Max plays it live, but those are almost the exact same chords I use to play the song. I'll post up a tab putting it all together.

Code: Select all

Standard tuning
Capo on 2nd to play along with the album version

Verse:
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-4-4-------------4-4-------------4-4-------------2-2-----1-1-----|
D|-2-2-------------2-2-------------4-4-------------4-4-----4-4-----|
A|-4-4-------------0-0-------------2-2-------------4-4-----4-4-----|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|




Pre-chorus:
e|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
G|-4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---2---2---1---1---|
D|-2---2---2---2---4---4---4---4---2---2---2---2---4---4---4---4---| x3
A|-0---0---0---0---2---2---2---2---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---4---|
E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
   You're no witch...

E|-----------------------------------------------------------------|
  ...taught to read...       love would you agree

*= the -11111111- is a series of 11s, not 1s



Bridge (Synth solo):
  Play the chorus

Outro (Did it hurt + la da da):
  I just do some soft stums using the chord pattern from the verse. I'm lazy.
Norgan is a real boy!

Ok just to make sure we have this all correct. He definitely does the stretch chord in the chorus and in the verses, the chorus is just a variation of 4 of the 5 chords he uses in the verses. He actually plays it a half step down which should make the stretch a little easier. Instead of stretching from 1-3-6 he goes 2-4-7.

"When I was 8 years old" x4
G-----*----*-88-*---------
D-99-*-99-*-99-*-77-66-
A-77-*-77-*-99-*-44-44-
E-99-*-55-*-77-*-22-22-

"You're no witch" x4
G-------8888--------------
D-9999-9999-7777-66-99
A-7777-9999-4444-44-77
E-5555-7777-2222-22-99

On the last time stop after playing the F# 4 times and let the B and e ring out

During the chorus, let the B and e ring out the whole time

"I have a total crush" x4
G------------------8888
D-777-6666-999-9999
A-444-4444-777-9999
E-222-2222-555-7777

That's pretty much it. On the second verse, after playing twice he says, "As I drive tonight", during those two lines, let all the notes ring out instead of doing the staccato.
