I picked Standard tuning instead of Drop B due to the fact I have never used Drop B tuning, nor anything lower
than, say, Drop D. The solo would be tricky to tab even with Drop B, so Standard was even more of a good
challenge. I did more for the rhythm backing to the song than the lead up until the solo. Some of the lyrics are
strangely placed because my mind got frazzled from the solo as I am much more a rhythm guitarist than a lead.
Hope all of this helps and hope it is very accurate. Enjoy

           I've flown a million miles, and I rode so many more.

           Everyday a castaway, a vagabond battle
