Gave It All Away - Mika Solo Version
Written by Mika, as performed by Mika 

Mika's solo version of this song uses a somewhat unusual tuning 
for the guitar. The strings are tuned as follows:

1Eb (down a 1/2 step)
2Bb (down a 1/2 step)
3Gb (down a 1/2 step)
4Db (down a 1/2 step)
5B  (up a whole step)
6E  (unchanged)

The 6th and 5th strings are like an open E tuning ala Elmo James, 
while strings 4 through 1 are like Eb standard ala SRV or Jimi. 

I call this the "Elmo Ray Hendrix" tuning...  ;-)

The main chords used for this song are ||: B Eadd9 C#m7 F#-F#sus :||  

Below are some suggested fingerings. You may want to use your
4th finger instead of the 3rd if it's more comfortable for you.
 
      B         Eadd9      C#m7        F#        F#sus

Here is the vamp used for the Intro, Verses, and Choruses:

    4Db------2----------3---------3----------3---------||
    5B-----0--------------------2----------------------||

Sometimes you hear this variation:

           B         Eadd9      C#m7       F#    F#sus 
    1Eb------------------------------------------------||

There are a couple of extra notes thrown in here and there, but 
essentially that's it.  The chords for the bridge are different 
and noted at the end of the song below.
