Tuning: Drop D (D,A,D,G,B,E)

Riff 1 (clean)
E|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-----6---------6---------6-----------------4h6-|
D|-----7---------7---------7-----------4h6h7-----|
A|-0-0----0-0--0----0-0--0----0--4h5h7-----------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|

This riff continues through to the verse.

Play Riff 1 x4    "You stand with the gun in your hand..."

Riff 2   "One bang blood rush to the head..."
E|---------------0------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------------|
G|-----6-----------6------6-----------------4h6-|
D|-----7------------------7-----------4h6h7-----|
A|-0-0----0-0--0------0-0----0--4h5h7-----------|
D|----------------------------------------------|

Or you can play Riff 2 like this (which I think this is how he plays it):
E|-----------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------|
G|-----6------------6------6-----------------4h6-|
D|-----7-------------------7-----------4h6h7-----|
A|-0-0----0-0--0-7*----0-0----0--4h5h7-----------|
D|-----------------------------------------------|

It's a little harder with the harmonic there, but both ways sound almost
exactly the same, so you can play it either way you choose really.

Play Riff 2 x2

Riff 3    "Life is beautiful..."
E|-------------------------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------------------------|
G|-------------------------------------------------------|
D|-14-14-14-14-14-14-14-14/16-16-16-16-16-16-16/19-19-19-|
A|-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
D|-------------------------------------------------------|

Play Riff 1 x2   "She cries but her man denies..."
Play Riff 2 x2   "She hides all the pain inside..."
Play Riff 3 x2   "Life is beautiful..."

Riff 4   "And hey, you're beautiful..."
E|-----------------------------------------------------|
B|-----------------------------------------------------|
G|-----------------------------------------------------|
D|-9-9-9-9-9-9-9-9/11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-11-12\11-11-|
A|-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--0--|
D|-----------------------------------------------------|

Play Riff 4 x2

Riff 5 (distortion) "And hey, I know that you can find a way..."
E|-------------------------------------|
B|-------------------------------------|
G|-----------------7-7-7-7-7-7-6b7r6p0-|
D|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-7-7-7-7-7-7---------|
A|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------|
D|-5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5---------------------|

E|----------------------------------------|
B|----------------------------------------|
G|-----2---------2---------2---------2----|
D|-2-2-x--2-2--2-x--2-2--2-x--2-2--2-x--2-|
A|-0-0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-0--0-|
D|----------------------------------------|

Play Riff 5 x1.5 (ends with the bend release pull-off thingy)

Play Riff 1 x1
Play Riff 2 x2   "Too weak, too weary to try..."
Play Riff 3 x2 (w/ distortion)   "Life is beautiful..."
Play Riff 4 x2 (w/ distortion)   "And hey, you're beautiful..."
Play Riff 5 x2.5 (end with bend release pull-off thingy again)
Play Riff 1 x1   "You're beautiful to me..."
Play Riff 2 x2   "You're beautiful to me."

This is indeed a beautiful song. Enjoy!

Very good tab, thanks for putting this great song on here!!

The second way of playing Riff 2 (with the harmonic) sounds better, I am pretty sure that is how Marcos plays it.

Also in Riff 5, the pull off from the 6th fret might be to the 3rd fret {6b7r6po3}. I'm not sure, I just was experimenting and that sounded pretty good.

Thanks

Thanks for checking out my tab! And yes, I agree that the harmonic is how Marcos plays it after watching a live acoustic video of him playing it. I wasn't 100% sure when writing the tab, so I thought it wouldn't hurt to just put both ways in the tab. They both sound very similar, but I know a lot of guys that aren't happy unless it's 100%, note-for-note accurate, but I think this is extremely close. The only thing I'm not sure is the 2nd half of Riff 5, he may play that a little different. The chords are correct, I think he just may play it higher on the neck. :)

Hey great tab! I am also making great use of your others on the album. At riffs 3 and 4, are those eighth notes or sixteenth notes? I cant tell by ear.

I want to post or [tab]
