   I found out that if I type too far to the right,
this site cuts out what I'm saying.
   Anyways, I've finally gotten this song down the
best my ears can do, so I hope you like it. Yes,
some of the parts are frustrating to move back and
forth with a pick, I've found that out. Well if you're
thinking of learning this song, good luck. It was 
fun trying to figure everything out.

   If there's something wrong with the tabs I've
made, or if you have any recommendations for songs 
you'd like an accurate tablature of, don't hesitate 
to email me. Please no spam. Hate that stuff. 
jp_iliketomoveit@yahoo.com . Have Fun!

something that makes this 10x easier on the pick work is to use 2 on the G string and then 7 on the G string that should be easier since its all in the higher three strings
