1st Lead

*this is done with a whammy and a lot of style, to which I have neither. So this is your 
basic, beginner approach to this lead just so you have something to play. It goes over 
the verse melody for one phrase.

Verse 2 is the same, as are the 2nd bridge and 2nd chorus

2nd Lead

*same deal as the top except this is even more basic. I'll compinsate for the whammy 
with bends and slides the best I can, but you really need a whammy and to be good at it for 
these leads to work. Also, as I'm tabbing this acoustic, it will be an octive lower.

for anyone who may wonder, i wrote this tab a few years ago and now realize it's probably in drop d and not d standard. not positive but me thinks, so that's an option too.
