-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: GUIzaTAH

Im not too sure about the order that the guitars are numbered in for this song,
so im gonna use lead guitar and rhythm guitar instead
This is also my first tab, so cut me some slack cuz im sure theres
a few mistakes. The extra open notes on the intro and prechorus are to make the riff deeper.
The only required ones are the open notes that come in pairs. I decided to try and make a tab
for this song cuz i couldnt find one that helped me alot.
If there are any questions or problems, leave a comment
and i will try my best to answer. But I digress... enjoy

Tuning: Drop D flat
--> means go to next line
 / means slide up
 \ means slide down
 h means hammer-on
 p means pull-off
 ~ means vibrato
 + means harmonic
 x means Mute note

A fill riff played around 00:34 and 00:43 right after the section of three 5's and ends 
then following 5 chord.
(Im not sure which guitar plays this part) We'll call it the LEAD GUITAR!
So in other words play this part as a lead in to the verse one for the lead
guitar.

VERSE ONE: LEAD GUITAR   00:37-00:46
This part comes in after the rhythm guitar plays the above part one full time. This part 
the same as the intro,
but with a slightly different ending that leads the song into the prechorus.  The 
is the last four notes,
which are the same as the last four notes of the rhythm section for Verse One.

PRECHORUS: RHYTHM GUITAR  00:46-00:54
just as a side note, the "5/\" doesnt have to be played.
It is just what I am hearing as a transition to the
remainder of the prechorus.  "/\" means slide up, then down

PRECHORUS: LEAD GUITAR   00:46-00:54
This is as close as I could get to figuring this part out
because its very difficult to hear it in the background,
so work with me here. The rhythm of this part is close
to the rhythm of the vocals

 the rhythm is simple.
It's just straight eighth notes.. or sixteenth notes..
I suck at subdividing. And as a side note, "x32" means 32 times

I'm not sure if the lead plays this part also, but i decided to,
so that the lead wouldnt sit there and do nothing for this stretch
of playing

BRIDGE
Im not too sure how this part of the song is divided, so
I'm just gonna call it all the bridge, but still divide based on
which guitar plays each part.

RHYTHM GUITAR    2:13-2:31
The Lead guitar rests during this section from 2:13-2:31

RHYTHM GUITAR- at around 2:36, the rhythm guitar plays one more chord
e|----->
B|----->
G|----->
D|-5~-->
A|-5~-->
E|-5~-->

LEAD GUITAR  2:32-2:40
Play this part four times, and after the fourth time,
prechorus 3 begins. This part was really difficult
to hear, so this is the best I could come up with.
The tempo is slower rather than quicker, and the
rhythm is close to that of the vocals

PRECHORUS 3
Im not sure if this part is technically a prechorus,
or still part of the bridge section. I decided to call it the
3rd prechorus so that the bridge wasnt too long

LEAD GUITAR    2:40-2:47
This part is kinda difficult to tab out and to have
others understand, so i recommend taking what u can
from what i have tabbed out, and listen to this part of
the song and play along with it. and as a side note, the chord
below is 12 and 14 not 1 and 4 or 1 and 2.  As another
side note, this section has no rhythm guitar part.

POST CHORUS
Im not sure if this part is actually the post chorus, or
part of the outro, but i decided to divide the two up.
The timing of this rhythm is little wierd.  I again
recommend listening to this part of the song and
playing along with it.
