The Intro may or may not be right.  When I play it with a delay pedal, it sounds like 
actual song.  He probably just does some different picking timings than I do or can tab out.

I could use a hand with the lead part on the chorus (sounds like quick, short, high 
I can't seem to get them down.  Maybe if I had better speakers with better high-end, but I 
So if you've got it figured out, e-mail me and I'll throw it in the tab.

Also, there's probably not actually 3 guitars in the song - I assume the lead just uses 
loop for the intro riff and plays what I have as Guitar II in the verse.  But for the 
of the tab and the fact that not everyone out there owns a loop pedal, I made a 3rd part.

A couple corrections I noticed after posting...

On the second *Pre-Chorus* section the Guitar II part isn't palm
muted.

And at the bridge, the first section of the Guitar II part should be A--9-9-9-9-9-9-9h10p9----|

All I've
noticed so far. Any more corrections please submit. Thanks!
