                               ~Careless Whisper~
                                       ~Seether~

Tuning~Drop D

For the VERY beginning, just play random harmonics around the 4th fret.
I doubt that's what they do, but I'm sure it will sound fine.

Chorus
Main riff

Okay, I can't tell you how many times I must have listened
to this part to figure out what he's doing. It sounds 
pretty close, but
I'm not 100% sure. I'm sorry if you learn 
this and then later meet the dude who wrote it 
and he tells you that it's wrong. My bad...

You...are...DONE!

Again, I'm 100% sure that the outro solo is 
not 100% correct...although I'm
pretty sure that the first half of it 
is correct. I hope you like it since
I'm the only one that actually took 
the time to figure it out... at least
I think I am. Okay,enough talk. Please rate and comment. Thanks.

The studio version of that song is definitely played with doublestops at the beginning. All other tabs did not consider that. 5 stars, dude!

Dead right Flexus13 - or unison bends, whatever you want to call them! Also the fast guitar run near the end is also tabbed perfectly, great stuff! :-)
