About this tab version
Easy Drop D version of the song. Includes the guitar tab as well as tabs for the lead synth. Was this info helpful? Yes No
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Icon for Hire - Pulse
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Tuning: Drop D
I know Shawn typically plays in Drop C, but this song happens to work 
out for Drop D. I went ahead and tabbed it in this tuning to make it as
easy as possible to play for all guitarists at any skill level.

There's obviously not a lot of guitar in this song, so I've also 
included the lead synth line for kicks.

Guitar 1 represents the electric guitar parts
Guitar 2 will represent the synth lead
