MEANING OF LIFE
As recorded by Disturbed

I take no credit for this.

Time Markers
------------
W = whole note
H = half note
Q = quarter note
E = eighth note
S = sixteenth note
T = thirty-second note
X = sixty-fourth note    

Notes will always appear above the note they represent. 
Notes with no note in the fret box represent a rest.
Non capital notes are staccato (1/2 duration)

------------
If you can't figure out any of the other stuff I use, your to stupid to be using this tab anyways.

Oh, by the way...You mispelled "too" when you were calling those unable to figure the rest out too stupid. Ahem..

I think the rhythm of the verse is wrong, I think it should be like:

A|1-2-----------------------5-(5)-7|
E|3-0-0-0000-0000-0-0-0-0-0-3-(3)-5|

thats how i hear it.... but this is a great tab, well done!
