This is in A# tuning (or at least that's what I've tabbed it in)

Just tune to Drop D and go 3 semitones lower if you're not sure.

The intro is to far to stretch in the last bit would be better on the 2nd and 3rd fret on the A# middle string rather than 7th and 8th on the F string. loved the harmony bits though no one eles has done them. also there is no sweep in the solo? think its finger tapping??? good job over all

I can make the stretch fine, but if it's easier for you to do the 2nd and 3rd frets then that's alright I guess, I just think it sounds like a definite hammer on and that's how they would play it, with the 7th and 8th.
Yeah I wasn't too sure about the sweep but I listened to it over and over again and it just sounds like too many different notes really quickly and couldn't work out how it would be tapped, I'll need to see it live first!
