This is perfect. Long have I been searching for an accurate tab of the sing -- being tone deaf makes playing guitar kinda hard. This is perfect. As to the person who says that this song is not played half a step down, I don't know about you, but if I take my strat', plug it into my amp, and tune it with the neck pick up selected, when I switch to the bridge pick up, I'll be around a half-step or so higher in pitch than I should be -- So if I want pitch correct sound when playing on the bridge pick up but don't feel like plugging in, I tune half a step down.

I want to post or [tab]
