This song is actually played on three guitars, but I condensed it into one.

It also may sound better if instead of playing this:
|-8/10-10-8-7-5-|
|---------------|
|---------------|
|---------------|
|---------------|
|---------------|

...You play this:
|------10--8--7--5--|
|-------------------|
|-/11------9--7--5--|
