Tabbed by: Nano511

I have created 2 versions of this tab. The first is based off a video of Vic playing the 
song live. The second is a version i created by ear. The second version could also be 
considered a more detailed version, as it splits up the lead and the rhythm.


*******TAB BASED OFF LIVE VIDEO****************************************


Tuning: Half a step down from EADGBe

Chords:
Asus2 => x02200
Ab/B  => 4x4400
A     => 577600
E     => 022100

Verse: Asus2 -> Ab/B
Chorus: A -> Ab/B
Bridge: E -> 0-2 -> Ab/B -> 7 -> A -> 4 -> E
        E -> Ab/B -> A -> E

The tab between the chords in the bridge are on the E string.




*************DETAILED TAB***************************************************

Strumming has not been tabbed because it would take up too
much space so please listen to the song to get the strumming

Thank you; this is perfect. And I know what video you got it from. :)

When Vic plays this with Lindsey or Jenna, in the video sometimes it looks like he uses 202200 instead of x02200 sometimes. But in the video by himself he definitely uses x02200.
