Final Masquerade Acoustic

These are the tabs and chords to the best of my ability for Linkin Park's "Final Masquerade" from the
acoustic performance at the LPU Summit in New York. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hmqsKtYBuuM (not my video)

Capo on the third fret.

Brad plays the F chord with using his first finger on the high e and B strings, and his thumb on the low E
string. So if you don't like barre chords, or aren't good at them (I was terrible until recently), you could
avoid it. I barre it because it takes less thinking for me.

I am going to tab with the chord on top and the strumming pattern below (down=v; up=^)

Repeat the pattern for chorus for the bridge. The final chorus has just one strum on the first F and C, then
the first G is strummed lightly.

In the intro and verse, for the changes chord between the Am and C all you have to do is lift your second finger
from the D string and put it on the A string, then lift your third finger off the
strings completely before switching to the normal chord.

If you are like me and you are just learning guitar or aren't very good and have trouble with fast chord
changes, you could take out the variation between the Am and C in the intro and verse, and you could skip the G
between the Am and F in the chorus and bridges. That's how I played it at first, also with this strumming
pattern: vv^ vv^ vv^ v^v^; and it all sounded fine.

Below, I'm going to put up the chords with the lyrics.

Intro:

Am C Am C

Verse:
             Am                           C
Tearing me apart with words you wouldn't say

                Am                        C
And suddenly tomorrow's a moment washed away

                        F                             C
'Cause I don't have a reason, and you don't have the time

                     G                              E
But we both keep on waiting for something we won't find

Chorus:
                    F                        C
The light on the horizon was brighter yesterday

                       G                         Am
With shadow's floating over, the scars begin to fade

           G      F                           C
We said it was forever, but then it slipped away

                G                       Am
Standing at the end of the final masquerade

    G            Am   C   Am   C
The final masquerade

Verse:
           Am                            C
All I ever wanted, the secrets that you keep

             Am                             C
All you ever wanted, the truth I couldn't speak

                       F                                C
'Cause I can't see forgiveness, and you can't see the crime

                    G                               E
But we both keep on waiting for something we won't find

Chorus: 
                    F                        C
The light on the horizon was brighter yesterday

                       G                         Am
With shadow's floating over, the scars begin to fade

           G      F                           C
We said it was forever, but then it slipped away

                G                       Am
Standing at the end of the final masquerade

    G            F                     C
The final masquerade, the final masquerade

                G                       Am     G
Standing at the end of the final masquerade

Bridge:

F C G Am

Final Chorus:
             G      F                        C
The light on the horizon was brighter yesterday

                       G                         Am
With shadow's floating over, the scars begin to fade

           G      F                           C
We said it was forever, but then it slipped away

                G                       Am
Standing at the end of the final masquerade

G     F         C
Oh oh oh, Oh oh oh

                G                       Am
Standing at the end of the final masquerade

G     F         C
Oh oh oh, Oh oh oh

                G                       Am
Standing at the end of the final masquerade

    G            F*                                             *One last final strum (let it ring)
