About this tab version
This tab is the most correct version on Ultimate Guitar as of now, as no one has tried to tab it out fully before, and was tabbed by hand about a month ago. Using a live video of him playing the song, and hearing the song a thousand times over, I'm sure that this tab is relatively accurate. The chords listed are generalizations, there are more technical terms for some of them. Was this info helpful? Yes No
This is one of my all time favorite songs to play on guitar, but no one had tabbed it 
out well in the past, so

I thought that I'd give it a try. If you have any questions or problems, feel free to 
email me at

dgamermaster@gmail.com, but other than than, enjoy the song!
