Tabbed by:Ryan Noormohamed

Sup guys Im Ryan Noormohamed and im 15 years old, this is my first tab. It drove me
crazy that I couldnt find a good tab for this solo, so i figured it all out myself.
Its a great song and a great guitar solo so enjoy. Effects-wise, I use medium-heavy
distortion, a phaser, some reverb(arena), and a Dunlop Wah-Wah pedal. Listen to the
song to figure all of this out timing-wise, but anyways heres the solo.

Tuning: Standard Tuning

good tab, interesting to see the solo move down the strings as edge snapped them while recording

it sounds like the edge is playing on the D string still during the "love you shine...." part, but i could be wrong
