Title: Prayer of the Refugee
Artist: Rise Against

Tuning: Drop D - DADGBE

x = mute
~ = let ring
PM = palm mute
/ = slide up
\ = slide down

The tabs I write are written to be played with one guitar, so normally i don't put two
parts into my tabs and i only write the more prominent one. In this song though, in
parts (the part where i wrote both rhythm and lead) both guitars are about equally 
and therefore i wrote in both to let you choose which one you'd want to play. The rest of
second guitar parts is pretty obvious too if you really want to know them, and if u 
figure it out, you can always see version 2 of this tab, in which the whole tab is done for 
guitars
