ARTIST: Rise Against
TITLE: Broken English
ALBUM: Revolutions Per Minute
TABBED BY: kryptonite22
TUNING: Standard (E A D G B e)
NOTES: The lead bits may be slightly out, but the rhythm parts are ABSOLUTELY 100% SPOT
ON. It sounds perfect. For once. You'll have to work out the timings, but it'll become
clear when you listen to the song.

Only the solo is correct, the correct tuning is Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb.
