   The run up and back down over the above guitar parts
   (Im sure the run up is wrong, but it was worth a try)

                                                  Guitar one  Guitar two (17th fret

I've not tried it yet, but why the half step down tuning? Of course that doesn't make it wrong, just curious.

Oh yeah the reason was because I tabbed the bass version too (which has been rejected ¬_¬ ) the bass hits a low Eb so I just assumed the guitar would be in that tuning to keep everything more organised
