Capo 1

Based on the several live versions currently on YouTube. These are the most basic 
elements, hopefully when a record comes out all parts will be intelligible. It looks like a 
lot, but once you know the 5 basic riffs [verses, 3 fills, bridge], you’re set.

Great tab! But in the 'Once I was an Eagle' album version, there's no capo :)

Perfect tab! just one thing... are you sure the end of the intro (i mean the end of every verse) is precisely like this? Watching this video I suppose it could be a litte bit different (but i might be wrong, of course): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jGSw5u7Qndk
Thank you anyway!
