This is in 6/8, time if you care.

I have tabbed only the main guitars; there are many underneath
to make the song thicker.

Palm Mutes (PMs) shown by "." under number.
 / = legato slide up
 \ = legato slide down
 x = muted note
 h = hammer-on
 p = pull-off
 b = bend
 r = release bend
(#)= number of steps for a bend
 % = short (16th) rest

Tunings for all guitars: (low to high) B F# B E G# C#

Hmm i dont know what this [xmari3nx] is talking about...great tab...correct tuning, but i believe that Billy uses C# (C# F# B E G# C#) most of the time...but this tab is great, 100 percent satisfied =D

It seems to be pretty much perfect... except you got lazy man. Show all 6 strings not just 2, like you did for guitar 1 on the chorus. Still 5 stars but if you are going to do something you may as well do it right.
