“Photograph” by Nickelback.

Tab by Dan the Man.

One of Nickelback’s best ever songs. I couldn’t find any accurate tabs on here - so here
it is.  Anyway this is 100% correct. But Chad Kroeger uses bar chords in the video clip;
but I think for the CD he used open chords.  The tuning for this song is ½ step down; but
you can play it in normal tuning but it sounds like the CD in ½ step down. That’s D# G# C# F# A# D#

Okay, first off, congrats on a more correct tab. But I'm going to have to disagree with the "100% correct" part. Really close. The chords during the chorus are stacked, acoustic playing the full chord, electic playing the bar of it with distortion. Like this.

Acoustic:
E-
B-
G-8
D-9
A-9
E-7

Electic (distorion):
E-
G-
B-
D-9
A-9
E-7

Only during the chorus though, remember that. And then, the little fill you have there isn't quite correct. There are chords being made on the last few notes of it. If you listen closely, you can hear it. Not sure if it's full chords or octaves, but you can hear it. Theres my 2 cents. Great job though!

Great tab dude. I noticed only one very minor mistake, the riff right before the Bridge goes:
E|----------------------------|
B|----------------------------|
G|-----9----11----------------|
D|-----10---12----------------|
A|-----10---12----------------|
E|-----8----10----------------|
