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?

My guitar has great low tuning capability and it goes down to Bb/A# without getting sloppy. I guess if your guitar/strings aren't that great your tuning will sound sloppy. Skillet plays with 6 string guitars, not 7. And this tab if from christian.com anyways, give the corrections to Adam K.
