NICKELBACK - FAR AWAY
E standard tuned down a half-step to E-Flat and in drop D.

There's many ways of playing this song. Most play it with their guitar tuned to
E-standard while playing it in E-flat. I don't know how Nickelback recorded this song in the
studio but when I see video's of them playing it live; they play this song in E-Flat 
Tuning and in drop D-Flat. You can also watch them play this song in their "Live At 
Sturgis" DVD
which is also available in YouTube so you can see their finger positing during chord progression.
