This tab is completely correct.  I have worked on this song for nearly one 
year to get it completely correct.  The bridge is the hardest to figure out.  
The part after the chorus on all other tabs I have seen are wrong.  
It is very hard, but stick with it.  You'll get it. 

Tuning (High to Low): Gb, Db, Ab, Eb

Key:
p = pull-off

This is such an awesome song, so don't give up just because it's a 
little hard.  Stick with it, you'll get it sooner or later. Have fun.
