The guitar sounds brilliant with alot of reverb and mild overdrive!
I worked this tab out by ear, its seems ok.

Awesome tab! The only thing that i feel isnt quite right are the 2 chords you play during the lines "Oh you, use your heart as a weapon
And it hurts like heaven",

But that just might be me..

actually I think this is very accurate, just a question about the part after the scale, I'm absolutely incompetent on taking THIS part make sense, look this vid http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1g6lnuUFNA&feature=g-hist&context=G223fc2cAHT05VzQADAA and maybe you could take the whole song, everything else is perfect n.n
