Breaking Benjamin - Simple Design
Tuning: Drop C   CGCFAD

Legend - FB = full bend   LR = let ring     s = slide
         HB = half bend   .  = Palm Mute    * - pre-bend note and strum

OK, This is really an amazing song!!! This is based from a Hal and Leonard tab book, but 
differs as I have condensed the song to 2 guitars and changed a handful
of things! If you want the whole thing note for note, then go buy the book!


Guitar 1 - Ben Burnley (rhythm)
Guitar 2 - Aaron Fink  (lead)
