I think that this is truly a kick-ass tab of the song. A hell of a lot of work has gone into this, and it sounds great. (standard tuning)

Although...Is standard tuning correct?

Missed a very distinctive pickslide (guitar two) between "We'll be crawling on the floor" and "Burnin' with a fever" part. Listen to the original recording at 1:24: at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VCyzJQipMjQ Here is the correction. By the way, I know where this tab is from;) Guitar one E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------|B-|---------------------------------------------------------------------|G-|--------.--.------------------.--.--------------------.--.-----------|D-|--.--.--0--0--.--.--.--.------3--3--.--.--.--.--.--.--0--0--.--.-.---|A-|--1--1--------0--0--3--5p4h5--------5--5--0--0--1--1--------0--0-3--5|E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------| Guitar twoE |-x--------\----------------------------------------------------------|B-|-x--------\------------------------------------------------------10--|G-|------------------------------------------------------------------7--|D-|------------------------------------------------------------------7--|A-|---------------------------------------------------------------------|E-|---------------------------------------------------------------------|
