About this tab version
This tab is significantly different to the others. While the other by dannywall may have a good rating it is not correct. In the tab, he also mentions himself that there are bits missing from the tab. This tab includes those missing pieces and also adds to it. Was this info helpful? Yes No

This is my second tab of a Drenge song, the other tab was quite close but didn't
include all parts, nor did it sound completely right at the end of each line.

Tuning: Drop D

Intro   (use alternate picking of the D and A strings).
