This is a really simple song, I watched him play this live and I tabbed it from that,
some parts are simplified but they sound exactly the same as what he plays!! There are
2 guitar parts if you get a friend to play along it sounds just like the album. We have
also included the timing so you can sing along with it if you'd like. Im positive its 100% right!

To me the slides sound better in the intro rather than hammering because it makes a more definite sound...good tab man
