Well I've had a look at the two other No Rain (well, one was 'No Rains') tabs on this site,
and neither really resemble the way I play it. When I first wanted to learn to play it I
looked at many tabs for it over the web, but not many seemed right. I think this is more
a bunch of them mixed together than my own work. Some was by my own ear, but as I say other
bits & bobs I took from other tabs which only seemed partly correct. I give credit to all
the people who have tried to tab it out, because all of their attempts have obviously
helped me to make this tab. :)
I have no idea if this is the way Brad Smith actually plays it. He's brilliant, though...

Solo.
The solo is just the same as verse 2.You could just play the verse riff over,
but here are some alternatives I like to play:
1.
G|——————9~———————————————————|
D|—————————676———7—————7—9———|
A|———7~————————5———7—9———————|
E|———————————————————————————|

2.
G|——————————————————————————|
D|——————7~—454——————————————|
A|———5~————————5—0h4h5—7~———|
E|——————————————————————————|

3.
G|——————————————————————————————|
D|——————————6h7p6———7~——————————|
A|———9—7h9~———————5————4—0h5~———|
E|——————————————————————————————|
And any other variations you can think of, but there should be about 8 bars of it.


Outro. x4
G|———————9~—————————————|
D|o—————————6h7p6——————o|
A|o———7~——————————5~———o|
E|——————————————————————|
