good tab i'm just curious if there's anyway to play this in standard tuning so i don't have to keep messing with my strings

This is DiCarlo...sorry man, but in standard I think you'd be running all over the fretboard. Besides, tuning shouldn't be problem, just re-tune it using the ORIGINAL ADG strings.

Now for my corrections: (more like improvements)
all of the original tab works fine, but after watching some live performances I thought I'd change a few things;

"I guess your smile"
D--0--0-
A--0--0-
G--7--6-
D--0--X-
A--X--7-
D--9--7-


the same goes for the "Your touch is potent..."
replace the first two and last two chords of that sequence with the above chords I just added.

(The "Fix all that I'm not" 'pause' also uses that second new chord...pausing first and then strumming while crescendoing into the chorus again):
D--0-
A--0-
G--6-
D--X-
A--7-
D--7-

The bridge is similar, replacing a few chords of the progression and then playing the rest as written in the original tab. Like this:
D--0-0--0--0--2
A--0-0--0--0--2
G--7-2--6--2--2
D--0-0--X--0--2
A--X-2--7--2--4
D--9----7------

Lastly the chorus has changed, and incorporates the fill as well...it sounds more complete. Keep the form of this chord and move the index finger to the appropriate fret.

D--0-
A--0-
G--14-
D--12-
A--0-
D--12--11--9--11

That's all...good luck and have fun! ~D-lo
