Hey, this is a pretty good tab, the tuning is correct and everything. But, i think they use a seven-string guitar for this song. I don't know that for a fact, but i do know it's easier that way because the seventh string is a low B, so instead of tuning your guitar all out of whack, you could just use that string. Right?
