Normal tuning.

I think this is an easy way to play the song. I'm not so sure about the solo, but it sounds okay.
The tab is looong because each part is a bit different from one another. It took me a whole 
day to tab it out, so don't steal it and pretend you're the one who made this please..


NORMAL TUNING
\ = slide down
/ = slide up
* = palm mute
~ = vibrato
b = bend

-SOLO-
In this solo, "vibrato" all you can. I'm not 100% sure I tabbed it good, but it sounds alright. 
It's hard to get the same sound as in the song... it takes a while.
