"High and Dry"

This is the basic pattern for the verses

This is the chorus...basically the same thing.

Now, you really needed my help for this one?
Easy, but very good song.

Key Cm or D#maj
The first measure is Thom alone on acoustic then the bass kicks in

"/" = slide up
"\" = slide down

*NOTE* The parts listed below do not always follow in this exact order.  
You need to listen to the recording to get the exact progression down.

G |----------|----------------|---------------|----------------|
D |----------|----------------|---------------|----------------|
A |----------|----------------|--3-3-3-3-3-3--|--5-6-6-6-6-(3)-|
E |--3--3----|--5-6--6-6-6-6--|(5)------------|----------------|

Verse - the verse can basically be broken down into three unique parts:

G |---------|---------|---------|---------|
D |---------|---------|---------|---------|
A |---------|---------|-6-5-6--8--10--12\-|
E |-5--5--5-|-4--4--4-|---------|---------|

G |---------|---------|---------|---------|
D |---------|---------|---------|---------|
A |---------|---------|-6-5-6--8--10---8\-|
E |-5--5--5-|-4--4--4-|---------|---------|

G |---------|-------------|---------|-------------|
D |---------|-------------|---------|-------------|
A |---------|--5-6-8-6-5--|---------|--3-5-6-3-5--|
E |---5-7---|-------------|---4-5---|-------------|

III (b).  - last part of verse, heading to pre-chorus

G |---------|--------|---------|
D |--5-7-5--|--4-6-4-|--3------| (to prechorus)
A |---------|--------|---------|
E |---------|--------|---------|

Pre-Chorus x2
G |-----------|-----------|
D |-----------|-----------|
A |-----------|-----------|
E |--8-8-8-8-6-6-6-5-5----|

G |---------|--------------|-----------------|--------------|
D |---------|--------------|-----------------|--------------|
A |---------|--------------|-----3-3-3-3-3-3-|-5-6-6-6-6-(3)|
E |--3-3----|-5-6--6-6-6-6-|-(5)-------------|--------------|

Then every once in a while, the prechorus varies to this.

G |--------------------|------------------------|
D |--------------------|------------------------|
A |--------------------|------------------------|
E |--8-8-8-8-6-6-6-5-5--/-11-11-8-11-11-8-8-11\-| (something to that effect)
