Now we're going to cover the accents and key change in the 3rd and 4th verses. Remember, your basic rhythm pattern stays the same.

At the end of the 3rd verse, there's a cool key change with some transition chords. First we start off with our Bb chord, then a G9, then a C7/6, and an F#7#9 that resolves to the new key, B (up a half step from our original key).

At eh end of the 4th verse, there's some stops. Here you'll play C3 minor, F#9, then a B, B diminished, A9, B9, the the F#7#9 again. This leads into an a cappella chorus.
