About this tab version
I feel like this version is alot easier to read and follow the song to. Also I think the other versions were incomplete and didn't have the solos tabbed out. Was this info helpful? Yes No
The song is in Drop D tuning and also has a Capo on the 3rd fret.
I'll be referring to the frets as they are marked on your guitar 
meaning the first fret directly after the Capo will be referred to as "the fourth fret"/"4".
Also if it says "0" I just mean empty string.

I am going to split the rhythm part into 4 essential progressions and then tab
it out to the lyrics to make it easier to both read and create.

The strumming rhythm can be quite tricky, so i would suggest learning it by listening.

For the solos you really need to listen in order to get the timing down, but i tabbed it out for you.
You need something to rub the string at the frets with in order to produce the echoey sound, 
Jonny uses a coin. using alot of reverb helps too.
