hey I'm fairly sure this tab is 99% correct. the lead guitar is in Eb and the rhythm
guitar is in drop Db.
 lead: Eb (eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)
 rhythm: drop Db (db Ab Db Gb Bb Eb)


Lead: intro
 Eb----------------|---------------|--------0------|-----------------|
 Bb---------3------|--------3------|----3-----3---3|------3p2---2----|
 Gb-----0-----0---0|----0-----0---0|--2---2-----2--|----2-----2---2--|
 Db---4---4-----4--|--4---4-----4--|0--------------|--2--------------|x6
 Ab-2--------------|---------------|---------------|0----------------|
 eb----------------|3--------------|---------------|-----------------|

              Note: on the 2nd repeat he plays   Eb------------------|
                    this at the end instead.     Bb-3-------2--------|
                    and on the 6th repeat its a  Gb------------------|
                    whole rest. listen to the    Db------------------|
                    intro if you dont know what  Ab------------------|
                    I mean.                      Eb------------------|

  also im pretty sure the other guitar that plays during the intro is the bass but i may
be wrong. it wouldn't be too terribly hard to figure out if it was rhythm though.

Lead: Chorus
 Eb-------------17---------|-----------------------|
 Bb-14-15-14-15----15-14-15|14-15-14-15-17-15-14-15|
 Gb------------------------|-----------------------|
 Db------------------------|-----------------------|x4
 Ab------------------------|-----------------------|
 eb------------------------|-----------------------|

 note: that's basically  Eb|-----------------------|
   what is played all 4  Bb|14-15-14-15-14---------|
   times but every other Gb|---------------16-14-16|
   time this is played   Db|-----------------------|
   instead. again listen Ab|-----------------------|
   to it if you don't    eb|-----------------------|
   know what i mean.

Rhythm: chorus
 Eb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|
 Bb----------------|---------------|---------------|---------------|
 Gb-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4|---------------|---------------|---------------|
 Db-4-4-4-4-4-4-4-4|5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0|7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7|
 Ab-2-2-2-2-2-2-2-2|5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0|7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7|
 Db----------------|5-5-5-5-5-5-5-5|0-0-0-0-0-0-0-0|7-7-7-7-7-7-7-7|

                               you can play the  Eb|---|
                               last chord like   Bb|---|
                               this if you       Gb|-2-|
                               prefer. its the   Db|-2-|
                               exact same chord. Ab|-0-|
                                                 Db|---|

Lead: verse 1

exact same as intro except repeated 5 times. the last measure of the 5th     repeat is a 
whole rest.

Rhythm: verse 1

 comes in on 2nd repeat of intro.
 Eb----------|----------|----------|----------|
 Bb----------|----------|----------|----------|
 Gb-4--x-x-x-|----x-x-x-|----x-x-x-|----x-x-x-|
 Db-4--x-x-x-|-5--x-x-x-|-0--x-x-x-|-7--x-x-x-|x4
 Ab-2--x-x-x-|-5--x-x-x-|-0--x-x-x-|-7--x-x-x-|
 Db----------|-5--------|-0--------|-7--------|

Chorus repeats.

rhythm: breakdown

 haha unfortunately i have trouble counting this part out so I'm just gonna leave out
the measure markings.
 Eb---------------------------------------------|
 Bb---------------------------------------------|
 Gb-4-4-4-4-------------------------------------|
 Db-4-4-4-4--5-5-5-5--5-5--0-0-0-0--7-7-7-7--7-7|x4

 Db----------5-5-5-5--5-5--0-0-0-0--7-7-7-7--7-7|

Lead: breakdown
 comes in on 2nd repeat of rhythm
 Eb-----------------------------|------------------------------|
 Bb-----------------------------|------------------------------|
 Gb-9-/11-/12-/14-\12-\11-/12\11|7-/9-/11-/12-\11-\9-\7-9-\7---|
 Db-x--x---x---x---x---x---x--x-|x--x--x---x---x---x--x--x--x--|x2
 Ab-7-/9--/10-/12-\10-\9--/10\9-|5-/7-/9--/10-\9--\7-\5-7-\5---|
 eb-----------------------------|------------------------------|

on the second repeat play      Eb--------------------------------------|
this at the end instead.       Bb--------------------------------------|
                               Gb-9/11--9/11--9/11--9/11-12/14/16/18/19|
                               Db-x-x---x-x---x-x---x-x--x--x--x--x--x-|
                               Ab-7/9---7/9---7/9---7/9--10/12/14/16/17|
                               eb--------------------------------------|

note: this isn't nearly as hard as it looks. all you do is strum quarter notes then
slide your hand on "and".

chorus repeats twice then outro is the same as the intro.

hope this helped you figure out the song. =) have a great day!!

im giving LucasHowlett credit for the intro b/c i used his tab to figure it out.
everything else i figured out on my own.

Hey man, great tab!
FYI though, since the lead guitar never hits the 6th string, you might as well have both guitars tuned to Drop Db.

I'm stupid, it does use the 6th string in the introduction. But you could just adjust what fret you hit and tune to Db.
