Intrumental

KeyBoard Solo: as there is not an actuall a guitar solo to play in this song, theres is 
keyboard playing this solo on the instrumental
               i couldn´t figure it out at all, but trying i pick up these scales that 
over this solo and go pretty go with the melody
               of the song, you can improvise over them, to catch somthing to play.

Hey mate
Thank you for tabbing this wonderful song. It really got me into playing the song and I'm quite far now. This thing is, (why I rated 2 stars), the main riff isn't correct, as far as I can see. I have play it quite different if I want to sound like Youngblood.

Secondly, I really don't get the pre-verse. It sounds totally different. Same goes for the bridge riff

In short, your tab helped me on my way very nicely, but isn't accurate (or maybe I just misread it)

I UNDERSTAND, BUT THE MAIN RIFF AND THE VERSE ITS OK, CHECKED IT, THE BRIDGE DOES SOUND WEIRD BUT THATS MY BEST. IF YOU THINK YOU CAN TAB IT BETTER PLEASE DP IT SO I CAN LEARN THE SONG WELL
