This is my first tab on here so... this is how I play the intro for the song, the 
other tab on here pretty much has the chords down right so...yeah

e|-------------|
B|----5----5---| <--you can play this part on any other position, using this
G|---6-6--6-6--|    pattern
D|--7----6-----| 
A|-------------| <--Play this as much as necessary and then hit that 
E|-------------|    A power chord a couple of times



then this

e|----5----4|
B|---5-5--5-|
G|--6----6--|     after this comes the that open E strum as much as 
D|----------|     necessary
A|----------|
E|----------|


then play the beginning part once and let the G string on the 6th fret ring

e|---------------|
B|----5----5-----|
G|---6-6--6-6----|
D|--7----6-------| then this again  
A|---------------| 
E|---------------| 


then play 

e|--------------------------|
B|--------------------------|
G|--------66666-------44444-|
D|--77777-66666-44444-44444-| <-- 3x
A|--77777-44444-44444-22222-|
E|--55555-------22222-------|

e|---------------------|
B|---------------------|
G|-------66666---------|
D|-77777-66666-4-4-4-4-|
A|-77777-44444-4-4-4-4-|
E|-55555-------2-2-2-2-|
     
then stum the open E chord as much as necessary

e|----------------------|
B|----------------------|
G|----------------------|
D|-777-6-4-6-2-2-222222-|
A|-777-6-4-6-2-2-222222-|
E|-555-4-2-4-0-0-000000-|


then

e|---------|    e|---------| 
B|---------|    B|---------|
G|-----6---|    G|---------|
D|-777-6-6-| 3x D|-4444444-|  <---play this all twice
A|-777-4-6-|    A|-4444444-|
E|-555---4-|    E|-2222222-|

theres also a lead guitar part that you can hear

e|----------
B|-15-------
G|-17(hb)-14   but Im not really sure about this
D|----------
A|----------
E|----------


the next part goes like so

e|-------------------|
B|-------------------|
G|-------------------|   
D|-2222-4444-7777777-|   3x
A|-2222-4444-7777777-|
E|-0000-2222-5555555-|

now for the nice quiet part, just strum each chord downward 

e|-5--4--0--2--|-5--4------------------|
B|-5--4--0--2--|-5--4------------------|
G|-6--6--1--3--|-6--6------------------|
D|-7--6--2--4--|-7--6--2222222-4444444-|
A|-7--4--2--4--|-7--4--2222222-4444444-|
E|-5-----0--2--|-5-----0000000-2222222-|


e|----------------------------------|-------------------|
B|----------------------------------|-------------------|
G|----------6666666-----------------|----------66666666-|
D|-77777777-6666666-2222222-4444444-|-77777777-66666666-|
A|-77777777-4444444-2222222-4444444-|-77777777-44444444-|
E|-55555555---------0000000-2222222-|-55555555----------|

then strum the open E chord again alot of times....alot!

now just play the intro again and sometimes you can hear some sort of Hammer On 
every once in awhile at the end on the D string like an D|--56h7h



So thats pretty much it! any corrections you'd like to make email me at iangotango@gmail.com

Great first tab. Not really a big deal but when you play the E note in the intro on the B string, you could also hit the open 6th string to give it a little character. Just an option, i like the sound of it.
