Tuning: Drop C# (C#, G#, C#, F#, A#, D#)


This is my first tab and ive figured this out completely by ear.
All the other tabs i had read for this song had been wrong or didnt give the lead guitar 
were in the wrong tuning
soooo, i decided to post one which is 100% correct
well, im pretty sure it is:P
please email me regarding any corrections;D

Now this particular song is a bonus track of Paramore's latest album, Brand New Eyes, 
has made its name as the
soundtrack for the film Twilight.
It's relatively easy to play, it just gets more complicated when you start adding in the effects
But the effects are optional:)
Ive tabbed lead and rhythm guitar parts which are recorded both by Josh Farro on the record.

Great tab !!!
Here's a few things I do differently for the lead (I didn't try the rhythm)
I also didn't check other drop D tabs, but if you wanted to you just have to play anything they've got a fret higher :)

this is picky but the chorus is played a slightly different rhythm:
Pick that D# string early, and let it last longer.

[Chorus][I]
D#|------------------------------10---------|
A#|-12--------12--------12------------------|
F#|------11--------11--------11--------11---|
C#|-----------------------------------------|
G#|-----------------------------------------|
C#|-----------------------------------------|

[Chorus][II]
D#|------------------------------14--------12--------|
A#|-12--------12--------12---------------------------|
F#|------14--------14--------14--------14------------|
C#|--------------------------------------------------|
G#|--------------------------------------------------|
C#|--------------------------------------------------|

You missed a few notes at the end of the solo sections (I made my tab in notepad, sry it came out ugly):

[Solo]
D#|---------------------------14-----------------------------14---------------------------------------------|
A#|-14b15br14-12-14b15br14-12----12--14b15br14-12-14b15br-12----12--14b^15rv14r-12--12\10-10-1010--2-3-/5~~-|
F#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C#|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

D#|---------------------------14-----------------------------14------------------------17--19--------------|
A#|-14b15br14-12-14b15br14-12----12--14b15br14-12-14b15br-12-----12-14-14-/15-15-1515----------15~~~-14~~--|
F#|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C#|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
G#|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|
C#|--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------|

Play this for your "middle eighth" you got lazy here :(
[Bridge][I]
D#|--10--11--14--12--10--10--14--12--|
A#|--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--12--|
F#|------12--11--11--11--12--14--14--|
C#|----------------------------------|
G#|----------------------------------|
C#|----------------------------------|

I'm pretty sure there's a slide at the end:
[Outro][II]
D#|-----------------|
A#|-14-15-15-15-\13-|
F#|-----------------|
C#|-----------------|
G#|-----------------|
C#|-----------------|

Hope I helped a little bit more, good tab, I gave it 5 because it's the only c# I could find... thanks for doing this!! Great tab!
