Back To Hogwarts Hey, this is kind of an augmentation of another tab posted anonymously, otherwise I would totally credit him or her... but I worked a lot off of that, and I also cross referenced with a video of Darren playing the song live which you can find here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0-2tHGeDqXQ&feature=related Keep in mind that this tab is probably not in tune to the actual musical version, so you can't play along with it, but it works all the way through for the video I linked to. There are also a few weird chords throughout the song that I'll tab out at the top, and it might be a little hard to master if you're just beginning. I'll mark any of these "Weird Chords" with an asterisk* Sorry if it's not 100% it's my first time making one.
