What the heck man?! I posted both Afterlife version 1 and version 2 tab. The first one I posted one I posted I had forgotten to log in, then I posted this one under my username. I contacted ultimate guitar months ago to see if they could combine the tab and they never responded. Jeez, no need to jump to conclusions. These tabs both belong to me, calm the frick down.
