sportzking21, finally. Finally THE correct Monster tab! :D

Ben may play this in Drop B live sometimes, but he's definitely not hitting any open notes, he's playing the same power chords as drop C, just a fret up, so it sounds exactly the same.

Just to sum it all together. This song can be played in Drop B or Drop C. However, nothing in Drop B is ever used, so it's a waste to tune it to that. This is the correct tab for Drop C. If you're playing in Drop B, Add 1 fret to everything and boom, Win.

Also, In the official monster video, their guitars are tuned to drop C.

Well done bro. Just a few minor issues with scratches or whatever, but let people figure those out on their own.
