alright.i find it pretty sad the attempts i have seen for tabbing this song.
the solo on all of them is totally off.Everything is wrong its pathetic. i have to 
things out.

this song is in standard tuning. you need a total of four guitars to play it. Or three 
you have an acoustic simulater pedal and a distortion pedal.

--------------------------------Intro/Verse--------------------------------

guitar one:
this is the little riff you hear scattered in the song. It is the only thing guitar one 
Guitar 1 is an Acoustic Guitar capoed to the 4th fret (no other guitar is capoed. just 
one).

   played with an up, down strumming motion very fast

Guitar Two:

if you have an acoustic simulater and a distortion pedal then this is guitar 2 and 3. 
now its acoustic.

-----------------------------------Chorus-----------------------------------

this is where gutiar three (or guitar 2 and 3) comes in with the Dist.

What's so confusing about this. Solo matches exactly what the other people have (note-wise) so their tabs are not pathetic. I'm pretty sure you don't need another guitar in the intro and they use at least 3 guitars, not 4. The chorus is mainly powerchords instead of regular chords. This tab is fine but your missing some parts like in the verse. 4 stars.

looking in hindsight seeing as i bought the book after i made this tab i understand the mistakes i made. but i still believe that this tab is a big improvement on the other tabs. but in some cases i was a little off yes.

I want to post or [tab]
