The song will repeat the appropriate sections above, so I will let you take it 
from here to jam it out!  Have fun!  Thanks, Dustin Ayars.

Well, to match the guitars on the CD, I had to tune down somewhere between one quarter step and one half step flat......a half step flat (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) is a little bit too far so you will have to catch an A or E on the CD and match it, then tune your guitar to that. This song CAN be played in standard tuning with no problem....it just won't match the CD pitch if you want to play along with it....but if you wanna jam it out, or with your band etc., standard tuning will work. If you have any more questions, please let me know! Thanks!
