how to play collide

On this post (and video above) we’ll learn how to play Howie Day’s Collide. It was released in July 2004 as the second single from his second full-length album, Stop All the World Now.

The song, written by Kevin Griffin and Howie Day, follows in the vein of works from other pop balladeers like Dave Matthews, John Mayer and Duncan Sheik. The London Session Orchestra provided backing instrumentation on the initial album version of the song.

Even the best fall down sometimes
         Em                   C                 
Even the wrong words seem to rhyme
            G                   D
Out of the doubt that fills my mind
