Notes
This is a 2 guitar song, guitar 1 is 'clean' and guitar 2 'dirty'. The verse sections of the song have been 
transcribed for 1 guitar but in all probability uses two guitars, guitar 1 doing the picking and guitar 2 playing 
the D5 chord.
The verse sections are all the same, make sure the high E is allowed to ring out in the picking sections.
The choruses are all different. The 'clean' guitar plays chords and short melody lines between chords. The 'dirty' 
guitar plays chords with partial string muting in between. These two parts are quite difficult to separate in the mix,
but listening to separate left and right stereo channels does help isolate the parts a little. The 'dirty' guitar part 
transcibed here is close to whats being played but things are a bit muggy so i can't guarantee its 100% accurate, but 
its the feel that counts. 

			X - Palm Mute (applies to Guitar 2 only)
			U - Up stroke (applies to guitar 2 only)
