OTL for the mistakes you might come across — this is my first time tabbing and working chords out by ear. I'm not really sure on the chords in the outro but anyway I tried lol. If you do find any mistakes, please post it here and I'll fix it~ Oh and if you wanted, you could just play most of the chords as power chords too. 

Enjoy and have fun! Happy

@Noodles. No worries, mate! Have fun!

@Davezzz. Ah thanks for the suggestion! I've fixed it up~ I've also changed the Emin chords to Gmin as well because I think it sounds better that way.

any chance you can do a video of the intro? I'm having a hard time pulling it off on rythm guitar, thank you!

@Noodles. Tips in the spoiler!
Spoiler:

Ahhhh I would do a video, but my camera is really suckish and plus I don't have a good recording interface. Sorry :/ I can give you a tiny bit of advice though: don't play the power chords at the very beginning of the song! I'm pretty sure that it's only Haruna that's playing it; and after some trial and error myself, I think that Mami just starts off with the octave intro riff straight away. 

Oh and another tip would be; use the slide from the C# to the D# as a counting measure! Don't rush to slide to the D# straight away, but after saying this, don't slide *too* slow lol. Since we're still talking about timing here, on the last octave riff before you play the power chords again, I know it's really tempting to keep strumming it, but you gotta move back to that power chord quickly. And one other thing too, I don't know if you've done musical theory or not, but treat the first power chords strummed like an anacrusis (which they're actually not though lol), which is a short note(s) that are placed before the beginning of the first bar that act like a little intro sorta thing. That's probably not clear to you lol, but basically think of the fact that the power chords are played rather short. I don't really know why this works, but it made me (personally), stay in time more and not dwell on the power chords more than I should've. 

Okay, one last tip... If you still want to play that power chord before the octaves yourself (which is also what I prefer to do since I don't have a rhythm guitarist here...), maybe an up-strum might suit it better for you? Most times I start the octave riff with a down strum, but when I feel that I'm really pressing for the timing, I just start with an up-strum and it still turns out fine for me. If an up-strum first helps you, then I say, go for it! 

I'm really sorry if this wasn't much help! Honestly though I don't really have a personal knack for rhythm as well so the way I play it probably isn't how Mami plays it, haha. Tongue I'm sorry that this turned out really long lol but since I can't make a video, might as well give all the tips I can in this post~ Best of luck, mate!

@NiXan18. Ah glad that you found the thread then! Hope that you enjoy these chords/tabs~

I have a suggestion if you wanna do the whole shebang on the intro without having a rhythm guitarist.

Don't play an E power chord, but strike the bottom E string before doing the octaves. With an overdriven tone, it does sound chord-ish (sorry, a made up word there).

As for the E chord on the 7th fret at the end of the intro octaves, it sounds more like an Esus2 as opposed to an Emaj. In my humblest of opinions. Happy

The first half of the solo, to my ears it is one octave lower. The second half is right but the last bends of the solo, again IMHO, comprise the 17th fret with a full bend and the last one is a 19th with a full bend. If you listen carefully the last bent note is way higher, and I wouldn't recommend a two-tone bend on the 17th (one and a half is feasible but not two hehe).

As for the ending chords, you got it right except it's A - G#m - F#m - E twice, and A - G#m - E at the end. The reason it sounds the way it does on the recording is you play a full barre chord for all of them hence the audible higher registers, as opposed to a three-stringed power chord.

PS: I hope to do the (imperfect - it never is perfect hahaha) cover vid by Friday night.

Hey! Thanks so much for the heads up on these things; I've been waiting for a fellow guitarist to come out here and pinpoint them out, haha. But before I change the tabs and whatnot (I have to rewrite and screenshot and ew it takes a while lol), can I just clear things up first? 

I definitely didn't think about it being an Esus2 chord; but I did think that the Emaj chord just sounded rather odd so I'll definitely give the tab a fix soon. 

Now that I listen closer, I definitely think that the bends are what you said (on the 17th and 19th fret)! For the beginning of the solo, I do also think that it's an octave lower than what I originally wrote. So then would it be (the numbers in the brackets are which strings): 8(3)-9(4)-6(4)-8(3)-9(4)-6(4)-8(3)-9(3)? 

And I've fixed up the ending too!

Again, thanks so much for the input; can't wait to see your cover of the song! Happy

EDIT: I've fixed up the solo and intro now!

Here's a mega rough take of a (crappy) practice sesh 10 minutes ago. Will try to minimise errors in tomorrow evening's vid. Heh.

EDIT: Forget the crappy Soundcloud file. My imperfect guitar cover video's done and it's here: http://www.scandal-heaven.com/t11138-imageguitar-cover-vid#683938 Hope you like it.

This is one I did in November last year when the PV first came out. I hope to remake this as this cover was done by ear lol, and now I have the band score.

But as I always say in all my cover video posts - "it's all for fun".
