Think i got it right!

B|-----------------------------|
G|-----------------------------|
D|--2~~----2~~----6~~----4~~---| X4
A|--2~~----2~~----6~~----4~~---|

Hi i think for the intro and in other places the power chords have an extra octave added in so are actually


e|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|--4----6---8---11--- 6---8-|
D|--2~~--4~--6~--9~~--4~--6~-| X1
A|--2~~--4~--6~--9~~--4~--6~-|
D|--2~~--4~--6~--9~~--4~--6~-|

e|--------------------------------------|
B|--------------------------------------|
G|--4-----6-----8-----11-------6-----8---|
D|--2-----4-----6-----9------4-----6----| X2
A|--2-X8--4--X4-6--X4-9---X8-4--X4-6-X4-|
D|--2-----4-----6-----9------4-----6----|

and i think the verse lead has been tabbed on the wrong strings and should be moved to the g and d strings :)

I want to post or [tab]
