NOTE: The transition from chorus to outro sounds to me like a slide guitar going down
then back up again. I'm not going to bother writing it out.

Good song, but it gets a little confusing for a tabber (especially the solo).
This should come fairly close. It might be a tad difficult to know which 
guitar is playing when. 

Thanks,

Why is nobody notating that "<note>" means a natural harmonic? holy shit I've been trying to figure out what this meant and none of the tabs have them. Come on dude

Easy, man. Wrote this tab a long time ago and hadn't really developed a solid system for my tabs, but I'd gladly change it if bothers you so much.

Sorry for being rude, I was just frustrated at the time. Didn't mean to sound like a dick. Still a great tab man.
