    Would you even care?

        And I feel it... And she feels it

CHORUS
            Where you going to tomorrow?
            Where you goin' with the mask I found?

                [ repeat refrain ]

OUTRO [w/ intro riff, end on G]
    To find it... to find it... to find it

Tuning note

STP plays this tuned down one whole step. I keep my guitar in standard tuning in my video lesson. Either tuning works, just keep this in mind re: whoever you’re playing along with (their recording, my video lesson, your friends, etc).

Chords & strumming

Chords for each section are below. If any of the weird bass notes (e.g., D/F# or C/E) give you trouble, you can just use the regular variant of that chord. For the E-flat-major-7, I included two voicings – personally the pinky stretch version that STP’s guitarist uses isn’t comfortable for me, so I often choose to use the version on x6878x, simply because I can switch to it faster.

Intro chords:
