-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tabbed by: [travis]


*This is a catchy song, and it's an easy song to figure out.

*This song is in Drop D, and I know this because I saw this song
live on "Tonight Show With Jay Leno," and the guitarists were playing
the chords in drop d tuning, or power chords. 

*This is the version from the album though, not the live version.

*Also, I tabbed this by ear. It is not from another site, or magazine.


***[Update #1]: Thanks everybody, this tab now has 39000+ hits. (May 2, 2009).



Tuning: Guitar 1 = {D A D G B E} (low to high)
        Guitar 2 = {D A D G B E} (low to high)


Legend:

. = palm mute
~ = vibrato
() = note is not picked
/ = slide up
\ = slide down
h/ = pick once
p\ = pick once
