I did a cover video of the song on YouTube, for those of
you that may need help or what have you. I decided to
tab out what i think are the (mostly) lead parts, and little bit
of rythym. I'm not going to say it's 100% but tell me what you think.

I spent alot of time on this, i'm sure most of you would be happy
with what i've come up with. Thanks! :D


Tuning Standard: E,A,D,G,B,e (low to high)


(INTRO)
Gtr.I - Hitting the open D is optional, although i prefer it.

*the part next to the right is if you want to put this on the 2nd time

just do the first part on the left 4 times. [listen to the track several
times and you might know what i mean].

There you go everyone. This was done mostly by ear and watching footage,
and experimenting. Sorry it's long, but i just wanted to include stuff
that you guys might wanna add to it - some of which i think sounds better
or like the actual song. Thanks for your time, please rate this
and maybe put up a comment or two - let me know what you think. :)

Any improvements welcome too.


~~~~!!

Here's the lead parts for the Acoustic, all sounds the same but the band
play it differently so there you go! As an added extra...
If you want rythym there's the other tab with the A minor transission,
or play it the way like i have - your choice.
