First off, thanks for the tab. I never would've been able to start playing this song without it, however I do have some corrections. I've been playing along to this song and watching a bunch of live video, and this is as close as I can get to what Mike's playing:

Verse
C#-------------------------3~---------------------|
B-----------2-0-----0h2---------------------------|
F#----------3---3---3--3-----3--------------------|
D-----2-----2-------2----2-2-------2---2---2---2--|
A-------0-----0----------0---0-------0-------2----|
D----0--------------2------------0-------2--------|
Riff 1

C#---------------------------------------------|
B-----------2-0----0h2-------------------------|
F#----------3---3--3----3~------------2--------|
D-----2-----2------2-------2----2---2---2---2--|
A-------0-----0---------0---------0-------2----|
D----0-------------2----------0-------2--------|
Riff 2

Play Riff 1 again, then:

C#---------------------------------------------|
B-----------2-0----0h2-------------------------|
F#----------3---3--3----3~------------2~-------|
D-----2-----2------2-------2----2---2-2~-------|
A-------0-----0---------0---------0------------|
D----0-------------2----------0-------2~-------|
Riff 3

Prechorus
C#---3p1p0---------------|
B----------0----0--------|
F#----------3~----2------|
D------------------------|
A------------------------|
D----0------------2------|

Pre-Outro
C#---3p1p0---------------------------------------0--------|
B----------0----0------------------------------0----------|
F#----------3~----2--2h3p2p0---------------3--------------|
D----------------------------2~----------4----------------|
A-------------------------------------4-------------------|
D----0------------2----------------4---------------0~-----|


I tried to space everything so it matched the song, but you should obviously listen to the song and play along to get all the timing and phrasing down. ;)

Some tips for the verses: Mike keeps his left hand pretty stationary throughout the verses. To play it like he does, picture the shape of a Dmaj chord and move it over from strings 3, 2, and 1 to strings 4, 3, and 2 and then just use your pinky on the high note. Also, use your left thumb to hit the notes on the 6th string so you can keep that position. The hardest part of this song (besides singing while playing haha) is the right hand technique. Play it so your thumb is picking strings 6, 5, and 4 and the rest of your hand is picking strings 3, 2, and 1. Anyway, hope everything helps since I just spent 3 hours doing all of this, and good luck because Mike's a beast.

First off, let me say I haven't logged-in, in years.

But I wanted to thank the OP, FatKidsOnMopeds and Mike Jones. FatKids, you've made multiple tabs for songs I love. And Mike Jones you nailed the corrections, and I couldn't stand that no one had even gave a "thumbs up" on your revision.

But, for what it's worth, I'm sure hundreds and hundreds of people have seen the tab and correction by this point. So, it was definitely worth it.

Anyways, thanks!
