-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: steveprudden
Tuning: Drop C# (Drop D then half a step down)

This is my favourite song off the new album. I really wanted to know how to play
that cool intro and chorus bit so had to work it out for myself. I figured I had
worked out the hard bit so tried to finish the whole song. There are a couple of
bits missing and I know for a fact that some of the phrasing is incorrect but I
plan on making corrections as I work it out.

Additional thanks to jamest54.

I've edited the ending to match jamest54's suggestion. I thought the original sounded a bit off.

Thanks for the ratings guys, it means a lot!
