Just so you know Mark's guitar is in flat for this song, he writes for Troy Stetina digital guitar magazine and used this song for a lesson.

Yeah Jhenri, but there was no button for C#/Db standard tuning. I did indicate that in the tab.

maybe I said that wrong but Mark's guitar is only half a step down, like down to my last. Myles is lower. Not asking you to change it, I know you make it easier to play on one guitar.
