I don't really like the Backstreet Boys, but the guitar in some of
their songs sounds pretty cool.

I looked everywhere for tabs for this song, but they were all wrong.
The intro is tabbed exactly as it is played in the song. The chords
I have tabbed sound correct. My version should also be very easy to
follow.

The song changes key halfway through. After the tabbed guitar part in
the bridge, the song climbs one whole-step higher. Before this part,
the D chord should be played normally. After this point the D should be
played as noted. The Em-1 chord shown in the bridge is not really
called that. I just don't know the name, so I'm just calling it Em-1. I
tried to tab this song to the correct beat, although you may find it
isn't. The best solution is to listen to the song and figure out the
correct beat that way.
