Tabbed By Jimmy Voelzke

Another guy tabbed this song out, and it was only about 90% correct, with some stuff 
This version is right, I'm possitive. There are 2 Guitars playing in this song, not just 1!

You're missing the solo at the end. Yeah he overdubs, but only in the intro and outro. In the intro he mutes an acoustic over the electric. And the outro he plays the solo under the outro riffs. You missed where they crescendo into the bridge.
