Hey gang,

My band is working this song up and I noticed a slight variation between what's posted here and what's in the sheet music from the Without A Net book. The last line of the bridge, "You know this space is getting hot..." is listed here as Bm A E, but the sheet music has D A E. I've always played the Bm and it sounds fine to me, but without having an instrument handy at work right now to test it out, I was thinking someone here might have some insight on this question.

Thanks gents!

It's a Bm. Though the two chords are relative major/minor and share two notes in common.

It's Bm, A and E and you can figure it out because it walks up the G slide to G#, A, B flat to the B (the same beginning riff notes like all the other verses) landing right on the Bm chord as you start to sing "you know this place is getting hot".

This is pretty much what I assumed. The Bm always sounded right to me, which is why the D threw me for a loop.

Thanks gents!
