D A D G B E
Saint Veronika - Billy Talent

Tuning: Drop D

This is tabbed in full because the first time
the chorus is played varies slightly from the 
second and third time it's played. And the
verse is also played a little differently just 
before the chorus.

Not terribly hard, but the bridge is tricky, however the song as a whole is hard 
to play perfectly.

Don't be afraid to ask questions or make comments, I welcome them! :)

I've got a question; why does it say the strings are GDAD when on a bass it's EADG? Just a little confused :s

"Deedee17" as stated above the tab is in Dropped D tuning which means of corse the E string is "dropped" a full step. (from E to D) and the rest of the string are kept standard.
