About this tab version
Tab includes as close to exact tablature and picking patterns. Was this info helpful? Yes No
First tab, gonna give it a go because I can't find many tabs for this song. 
Song is in open C# (C#G#C#F G#C#) and all strings are a bit flatter than 
exact pitch. Listen to the recording to get the timing. I pretty much used most of ianbranda's version as a
base (big thanks <3) but I added my own corrections, picking patterns and new sections. I hope others
make this tab even more precise and complete.

[Chorus]

Rest of the song is pretty much strumming through the 3 main chords with some palm muting. If anyone could tab
that it would be greatly appreciated.
