[INTRO/VERSE RIFF] x5


Breakdown/Outro
This bit's in Drop D, so you could play the whole song in
Drop D (shifting everything on the E (well, D) string up 2 frets) but
I think this part is just played on a different guitar.

Sweet tab dude. For the Drop D part what I do is quickly tune down the E string whilst the first open fret note rings; this will ONLY work if you can accurately tune to D straight from E.

LONG LIVE THE D!

Thanks for the comment, I reckon it would be quite easy to just de-tune like you said.
