3 Doors Down
Kryptonite
The Better Life
TAB By Nathan Laff. He claims no accuracy, no life, and no friends. 
E-mail: nlaff@earthlink.net
Tuning: Standard (E)
Notes: Easy tune, very catchy. In the Refrain, there are chords being played (transcribed) and a 2nd guitar (untranscribed) but the picking is too random, and believe it or not, I have better things to do than sit here for 2 hours tabbing that out. Just stay in that progression and it will sound fine. The solos should be accurate. I am usually against transcribing any leads but I couldn't tell if it was supposed to be a lead or another bridge/outro. So I went ahead and did it. Other than that, this should be perfect, or damn close to it. Put it on your webpage if you want, just give me credit for it. And feel free to send me the contents of your mother's purse. Also e-mail me with corrections or additions, or compliments. If you want to print it, it should turn out ok. I tried to get it nice for printing, and had to re-write it 3 times to do so. (damn word wrap.) Courier New, pt. 10. I think I'm done ranting now, Enjoy. [April 19, 2000]

Definetly an AWESOME TAB! The intro is very easy to read, tells you when theres distortion and when its clean. Also gives you the exact time in the song. Awesome tab!
