About this tab version
This Tab includes the Chords to the song along side the lyrics, with the Tabs of 2 guitars (technically 3, but its not noted) along with some tips on how to play all parts on one guitar at the same time (Its a little give and take-y) as well as suggestions on how to play it your best. Side note, some of the automatic lyrics were corrected and I made one teeny tiny chord change compared to the other version (which I rated 5 stars) in the 3rd line of the chorus for the sake of playing ease. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Intro]

Guitar 2 (Back Ground)(Best if Finger Picked)(Both Palm Muted, but you want
the e string to have some resonation to it, while the B string is
completely dead)

NOTE: I added the 7x on the G, this is OPTIONAL, or possible in REPLACEMENT
of the 10x (B) depending on what sounds good to you, I've done all 3 options
and they all sound good, but doing G and B together can be tricky to get right
Personally, I recommend holding all the frets down, and focusing on the G and e
and letting the B get hit lightly with each Pluck


e|-----10---------10---------10-----10---------10---------10------|
B|-10x----10x-10x----10x-10x----10x----10X-10x----10x-10x---------|
G|--7x-----7x--7x-----7x--7x-----7x-----7x--7x-----7x--7x---------|  Repeat
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

(Sometimes this is deviated from, ex. a 10th fret on the e string might replace
 a 10x on the B string, its hard to pin down, even harder to put on paper, but
 when you play, it will feel natural, and come right out, I promise)

Guitar 2 cont.
On the 3rd line of every verse, the 10'th fret on the e gets lowered to the 9th
e|-----9----------9----------9------9----------9----------9-------|
B|-10x----10x-10x----10x-10x----10x----10X-10x----10x-10x---------|
G|--7x-----7x--7x-----7x--7x-----7x-----7x--7x-----7x--7x---------|
D|----------------------------------------------------------------|
A|----------------------------------------------------------------|
E|----------------------------------------------------------------|

And thats all I have prepared for you regarding the background guitar :D

e|--10--9----------|-----------------|
B|---------10~-----|--8--7--10~------|

ALL THAT BEING SAID, IF YOU WANT BOTH AT ONCE FOR
THE INTRO ONLY (doesn't apply to verses) IT WOULD
LOOK LIKE THIS (in case you only have one guitar):
