This is an easy to play but beautiful moving song. If you can't play the fast
hammer-ons/pull-offs just go with the chords, it still sounds great!

Stone Sour usually play half step down (Eb Ab Db Gb Bb Eb) tuned guitars.
This is a transcription to standard tuning.

Theres lots of half accurate tabs for this song already but I wasn't satisfied
so I had to put up my acoustic version.

I did not add any solo, the original solo is just some D# minor pentatonic
stuff. Be creative ;)

Just listen to the song for the strumming/chord voicing.

Tuning: Standard (EADGBe)

I think the riff needs a bit of fine tuning to be perfected but it's not hard to figure out what's missing. Despite that this is so great, thank you so much, I can't even begin to tell you how much I love this song and now you've given me a platform to yell it into a microphone as loud as I can... Thank you! 5 Stars all the way up!
