Tabbed by: RainbowBassist
Email: Just message

Tuning: Standard
Time Signature: 4/4

By the way, the harmonies in the end and in the solo might be a little off from the 
recording, but they sound fine on their own, so it should work okay.

I apologize that the spacing and formatting is a little off for the chords and such, but just listen to the song to
figure it out. :)
Thanks

One note wrong for the harmonized solo, but you are a god for tabbing this.
I've been looking everywhere!!!

I would play this with power chords, if I would cover this... I'm livin' in the same country with Nightwish, and I say Tarja Turunen was better than the chick singing now...
