NOTE: UNIQUE TUNING (See Video)
Iris is a love melody extraordinaire, with beautiful lyrics and a moving rendition by original artists The Goo Goo Dolls. Any cover of this song, by you and me, is going to include interpretative elements since it would be hard to replicate it exactly the way the original band played it.
NOTES ON THE TAB
This song sounds more complicated than it actually is on guitar, and that's primarily due to the very unique tuning which allows for most of the string to be played open (without pressing anything!)
In the video below, Mark Lincoln from Jamplay does an excellent job of explaining the mechanics of this tuning, and the individual sections of the song.
