Tuning: E A D G B E (Standard)

Hey guys, it's James, thought I'd post this as it's a great song by an awesome band and
havent really seen any full versions of it on here, so enjoy! (I tabbed this out by ear
I think it sounds pretty accurate but any corrections or constructive critisism will be welcomed)

Intro:
E|--------------|-------------|--------------|-------------|
B|-0-2-3-2------|-------------|-0-2-3-2------|-------------|
G|--------4-2-4-|-------------|--------4-2-4-|-------------|
D|-------------4|-0-2-0-0-----|-------------4|-0-2-0-0-----|
A|--------------|------2-4-0-0|--------------|------2-4-0-2|
E|--------------|-------------|--------------|-------------|

Verse:
(Listen to the song and figure out the strumming pattern)

Dsus2     Cmaj9     Bmaj     Cmaj
E|---     E|---     E|---    E|---|
B|-3-     B|-3-     B|-3-    B|-1-|
G|-2-     G|---     G|-3-    G|---|
D|---     D|-2-     D|-3-    D|-2-|
A|---     A|-3-     A|-1-    A|-3-|
E|---     E|---     E|---    E|---|

Chorus:
(Listen to when the strums are)

Gmaj     Dmaj     Amaj     Em
E|-3-    E|-2-    E|---    E|---|
B|-3-    B|-3-    B|-2-    B|---|
G|---    G|-2-    G|-2-    G|---|
D|---    D|---    D|-2-    D|-2-|
A|-2-    A|---    A|---    A|-2-|
E|-3-    E|---    E|---    E|---|

And that's basically it, for the outro, keep strumming the Dsus2 and fade out.

I hope this tab's helped you, if you have any queries or suggestions, email me at

Sorry man, The only thing you got right was the lead part. It is in the key of B Minor. Not D. Nice try though. Plus the song is alot more complex than you have tabbed it out to be. better luck next time.
