Tuning:C#G#C#F#A#D#

The other tab was missing a few things (notably the lead guitar in the chorus) 
and I think the intro is played a bit differently. Here's my take on it.

*EDIT July 2010* Fixed the intro (you were right, Vectris) and some formatting.

INTRO, pt. 1 (0:00-0:32)

Ya intro's wrong, should just be this.

But I've looked at the first half and so far so good, nice job.

You're missing the bassnote to the intro. No big deal, easy fix. Great tab. 5 stars.
