Ok so this is the RIGHT way to play Everlong by the Foo Fighers. Not that hard of 
a song (on guitar) but it's REALLY fun to play. Especially with a band.

Tuning is drop D (D A D G B E)

This is great. A lot easier to understand than the other Everlong tab with 5 stars. Thanks for submitting.

WELL DONE MATE! THIS IS AN AWESOME TAB AND WELL DESERVING OF 5 STARS. YOU HAVE ALL THE PARTS OF THE 3 GUITARS. YOUR HANDS SHOULD BE TIRED AFTER PLAYING THIS SONG.

HATE WHEN PEOPLE PICK FLY SHIT OUT OF BLACK PEPPER AND COMPLAIN THAT YOU DIDN'T DO THIS OR THAT, OR YOU MISSED THIS, ETC. THOSE FOLKS JUST DON'T HAVE AN EAR AND CAN'T FIGURE THINGS OUT WITH THE BASIC TAB PROVIDED, AND ARE PROBABLY PERFECTIONISTS. I HAVE NEITHER THE TIME, PATIENCE, NOR INCLINATION TO PLACATE THOSE FOLKS.
