Tabbed by: Isaias Garcia (TexasFury)

Tuning: Standard/Drop D


For guitarists, this is an extremely simple song. While the left panned guitar has the
two obvious riffs, closer listening shows there is a center panned guitar which mimics
one of the synthesizer lines. This center guitar is in Drop D, while the left panned 
guitar can be either Drop D or Standard tuning (your choice, as the 6th string never gets
played). For the left guitar, I've provided an alternate version of playing Riff #2.
