There is another tab for this song. It is close but there are some mistakes with it. i 
very confident that this is the correct way to play it. i can play it right along with 
song just the way they do it.

it is tuned to drop D and is played very fast, so watch out.

Intro Part 2
this is played at a low volume for two measures then gets pretty loud. I recommend using 
volume pedal, if you don't have one... well nothing has to be perfect.

very unsteady rythem. watch your timing.

D|-1-------------------------------|

this comes in during the verse also on a seperate guitar. thats the only time guitar 2 
something different. the rest of the time guitar 2 just doubles guitar 1.

E|---------|
B|---------|
G|-88888888
D|--------- this comes in halfway thru the verse and just continues on to
A|-66666666  the end of the song.
D|---------

the chorus is just the same thing as the intro

Bridge
also a sloppy rythem. watch yourself.

The notes are all 100% correct, but the song is in Eb.

Yeah, Zamboni is right. You guys notice how all of the drop D chords go down to the first fret, but never open? thats because they can't go down that far since they're really playing in e-flat. believe me, if a band can use open strings they will. most people do.

oh, and i watched a live video too ;)

Wrong tuning, wrong strings, makes it pretty impractical. Most of the notes are technically right, but it's formatted in a not so user-friendly way.
