T|  A small portion of the musical complexity that is The Fray's song,
A|  "How to Save a Life".  These simple notes and chords 
B|  are easily identifiable and do not begin to match the intricacies 
N|  of the actual song or detail of the officially licensed sheet music (if it exists).  
A|  
B|  (Numbers indicate the octave)
B|  (Uppercase notes indicate the note is sharp)
E|  
R|  INTRO AND MAIN MELODY (played by piano):
.|  
C|  R = Right hand
O|  L = Left hand
M|  
-|  R 4|A-f-d-ff-f-f-ff
T|  L 3|A-----A--------
A|  
B|  R 5|c--------------
N|  R 4|--f-d-ff-f-f-ff
A|  L 3|a--------------
B|  
B|  R 5|d--------------
E|  R 4|--f-d-ff-f-f-ff
R|  L 3|A--------------
.|  
C|  R 5|--------c------
O|  R 4|a-f-d-f---f-d-f
M|  L 3|a--------------
-|  
T|  (repeat until chorus)
A|  
B|  Or play...
N|  
A|  R 4|-A-f-d-f---f-d-f-|c-f-d-f---f-d-f-|d-f-d-f---f-d-f-|a-f-d-f-c-f-d-f-A|-f-d-f---f-d-f-|c-f-d-f---f-d-f-|d-f-d-f---f-d-f-|a-f-d-f-c-f-d-f-A|
B|  L 3|-A---------------|a---------------|A---------------|a-------c-------A|---------------|a---------------|A---------------|a-------c-------A|
B|  
E|  Or here's another way to play it
R|  4|----------------}c--------------}d--------------}--------c------
.|  3|A#-f-d-f--f-d-f-}--f-d-f--f-d-f-}--f-d-f--f-d-f-}a-f-d-f-c-f-d-f
C|  2|A#--------------}a--------------}g--------------}a--------------
O|  
M|  
-|  CHORUS:
T|  The chorus is a little tricky to discern the individual notes from, but this is what I gathered:
A|  
B|  Where did I go wrong...
N|  R 5|------d-|------d-|------d-|------d-|
A|  R 4|A--g-A--|a-f-a---|A--g-A--|a-f-a---|
B|  L 4|d-------|c-------|d-------|c-------|
B|  L 3|A-------|f-------|A-------|f-------|
E|  L 3|g-------|--------|g-------|--------|
R|  
.|  (CHORDS)
C|  [D#] [F] [Gm] [A#] [F]
O|  
M|  
-|  
T|    LYRICS not included anymore due to the free speech hating NMPA :P

ok for u who dont no, Bb is the same thing as A#!!!! so yea it is really close oh smart one, so before u freak out make sure that it isnt correct, im not so sure bout the chorus, but im pretty sure the intro is right, though i sorta wish the guy who made this would put the whole song up, that would be useful :D, and also to read these when it has a number, 1-5 on it, it shows the keys, there r 5 sets of keys, left to right, so that might help u, and it just tells u the notes to play on that line, hope this helps :D

any chance of anyone tabbing some of the the additional fills in the song, such as after the repeat of third chorus where there is a variation as it goes into chorus again, at about 3:10
