Hello halen99, maybe I can help.

Surrender starts with the intro in the key of Bb.

In a rolling octave figure, play the notes F (low) - Bb (middle ) - to F (high) repeatedly above middle C.

The first verse will modulate up an half step to the key of B.

Your notes will then be F# -B -F# played the same way as I described.

This pattern will continue for another verse until the song modulates another half step for the final verse, which will be in the key of C.

Your notes will then be G- C- G played the same way as the others.

When you come to the bridge of the last verse, or B Verse if you will ("When I woke up , Mom and Dad were rolling in the couch") the rocking piano triad chords are F - G - C .

You then return to the figure you played in C until the ending of your band's choice.

Good luck!
