/* First and foremost, i would like to say that this may not be the correct way to play it,
   but it is the way *I* play it, and it sounds pretty damn good as compared to the cd.
   Some of what is here will most likely be found in other tabs, partly because of common 
   opinion. The fact of the matter is, I personally have recorded and compared, and i see
   no difference. If this sounds odd on your guitar, check your tuning, even the slightest 
   mis-tuning can throw this whole song off. Also, its worth noting that using your pinky
   finger to fret the Gb makes the Chorus much easier to play.                              */
