-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by:DST
Email:extremly_confused@hotmail.com

Tuning:Drop D (DADGBe)

I have made a guitar pro tab for the whole song but some people can't use it i have 
One person has made an accurate tab of the solo from a video so i have decided to tab the 
and verse.

You can notice the starting chords are extremely similar to those in Living in the 
(it is also in the same key).

Chords:

e|---|
B|-6-|
G|-5-| = D minor 7th (1st finger barred on 5th fret, 3rd finger on 7th fret
D|-7-|   on the D(3rd) string and 2nd finger on 6th fret on B string)
A|-5-|
D|---|

Not a big correction, but I think the intro goes.
Sounds right to me but not 100% shure about this besides it looks on the deep D-String different to the Rock am Ring 2009 Performance.

e|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------------------------|
D|---------------------3p0~-|
A|-5p3p0---------5p0--------|
D|-------5p3-5h7------------|

Goog job overall thanks ! My turn for little corrections ^^

I really think that intro should be played like this (i have the RAR 2009 show and i really paid attention to his fingerings). Ian ends the riff on the A string the first time :

E|----------------------------------------------|
B|--------10---------8--------------------------|
G|--------7----------0--------------------------|
D|--------7----------8--------------------------|
A|--------8----------7-------5p3p0------5---8-5~|
D|-0-0--0-----0-0--0----0-0-------3h5h7---0-----|

and for the last measure it gives :

E|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|---------------------|
D|---------------------|
A|-5p3p0-------5---8---|
D|-------3h5h7---0--6b-|

Watch this video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e5y_ziDfWkk (0:06 - 0:12)

After the two jazz chords, the riff goes like this:

E|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|----------------------------|
D|----------------------------|
A|-5p3p0-----------5p0--8--5~-|
D|--------3h5/7p0-------------|


Ring finger does the pull off on 7p0.
Index does the pull off on 5p0.
Pinky finger hits 8.
Index on 5 with single finger vibrato.
