Jimmy Eat World - The Authority Song

I was browsing earlier at the tab for this song, and i found a huge lot of
inaccuracies, so here is the COREECT version of the song with the times and
everything.  Great song, easy to play--Everything you need is right here.

If you need a song tabbed, don't hesitate to email me at:

Almost perfect. I think it should be in drop-D, because the open E's don't sound low enough. But once you adjust everything for the change in tuning, the tab is great.

"so here is the COREECT version of the song"

First part I read, wrong, song is in drop D, the very first note is a D then it hits the octave A string 5th fret.
