Title : Meds
Artist : Placebo
Album : Meds 2006
Composer : Brain Molko/Placebo

I came up with two different way of playing this amazing song. The first one - guitar tuning : Normal.
The second way is by tuning the guitar to placebo's tuning (F A# D# G# C C)
*No timing. Listen to the song first.

Those "*" bits are where you do ghost notes.

Basically you just put and "x" across the tab.
