finally! somebody does this tab but for the quick Em to F changes in the verse, I've seen him live do a C instead

(i'm the tabber by the way)
I know, I've seen him do it too, it does sound kind of right
a little odd though, either
one will do, I personally use the
F5, it sounds fine playing along to the record

really good tab mate ]and changing with the C and Em can help with the timing.
instead of the F5 u can vibrate the 5th fret on the g string
but really good tab
