Album: Back In Black

Tuning: Normal (E, A, D, G, B, e)
Notes: OK. I've tried to complete the tab for this great song. I'm about
99.99% sure it's right. Both Lead and Rhythm Guitars are here but I've
called them G1 & G2 respectively. All Bar Chords can be played as normal chords
ALSO anywhere where there's a 5/2 power chord you can change it to a 
4/2 power chord instead cause it makes only a slight differance. 

Go Heavy or Go Home!!!

The Intro begins w/ 4 Bell Tolls Then:

I agree with sugarcult, you have to be dumb to think this tab sucks when the intro and verse are how Angus gave them in Guitar World in January 2004.
