Artist: Nickelback
Song: Someday
Album: The Long Road (2003)
Tuning: Drop D (D A D G B E)
Tabber: undecided_gtr

I'm gonna catch a lot of hell for this tab cuz they'll say, "It's not in that
tuning." I'm just gonna go as far as saying that I read Guitar World too.
Although the actual tuning is Drop C (low to high: C G C F A D), there is a
fairly accurate way to play in Drop D, which is what this tab is all about. This
transcription is not unlike the one in Guitar World, but it's moved back two
frets because it's in Drop D. If you don't like the tab, oh well. That's your problem.

After you play your last note just let them fade out on their own without causing feedback.

Yeah, I really like this tab. Much easier than the Drop C one and sounds great.

This is actually a transposed version of the exact way that Chad and Ryan play this song, note for note as they demonstrated in Guitar World in 2004.
