Album: Saint Asonia
Tabbed by Matthew @ http://saintasonia.net

Tuning: 7-string guitar tuned down one and a half steps down. This tuning was told to me 
by the bands guitarist
Mike Mushok in an official chat.
Your standard 7-string tuning is BEADGBE, tune this down one full step, and an 
additional half step down.
According to my Boss TU-2 tuner these notes are as follows -  (low to high) F# C# F# B E 
G# C#

You wrote the tuning as
F# C# F B E G# C#
This F^ should be sharped.

Also, does the tuning need to be that low? I know that's the tuning Mike Mushok plays it in, but it's not really necessary unless you're playing an open F# power chord. The lowest sounding power chord is C#, so that would probably be a better tuning, Drop C#. A 7 string isn't required.

Played it transcribed to Drop C# and noodled the solo though I believe most of it is correct or really effing close. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XQIoZaOEnlM I don't like to tab things but you're welcome to follow my hands and add the 6 string Drop C# tuning version to this tab.

I think the tuning is actually G# C# G# C# F# A# D#. This was one of Mike's primary tunings in Staind except this is the 7-string version of it. In live videos he's playing bar chords during the chorus which would mean a dropped tuning:

Also, 1.5 steps down on a 7-string would put the low B string down to G#, F# would be 2.5 steps down.
