                             MONSTER - Paramore
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Tuning: Standard

Here's a 4-string standard version of the song. I've found playing it this way 
makes for a much more accurate and on-beat E during the intro/verse line.


Verse 1:
     Em                            C               D
G|--|--------------------------------------------------------------|
D|--|--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|5-|------------------------------3-3-x---------3-5-5-x-----------|
E|--|5-3-x---5~--7-0~----------------------------------------------| x4
(that 5 is a leading tone. don't play it the first time though)

Pre-Chorus:
  Em
G|-------------------------------|
D|-------------------------------|
A|-------------------------------|
E|0-0-x---------0-0-0-x----------|

A|3~----3-3~--3~--3~------3~----------------------5~--5~--5~--5~--|
E|--------------------------------0-0~--0-0~--0~------------------| x2
   
  C                               G               D

D|--|--------------------------------------------------------------|
A|5-|------------------------------3-3-x---------3-5-5-x-----------|
E|--|5-3-x---5~--7-0~----------------------------------------------| x4
(remember not to play that first 5 the first time)

(here's the cool bass run. This thing took me freaking forever to figure out)
