a lot in the chorus! Here's something that's much more accurate.

Tuning: standard EADG

GREAT TAB!
Finally a tab from someone who's understood how to indicate music, hah, and someone who has actually understood the time signatures here!

A little thing. All the notes in the main riff are played on the E-string. (That's a lot easier to play as well.) But generally don't be afraid of using the high fret. The low E-string actually gives a full-bodied tone!
