These are my souvenirs the memory of a lifetime
We were wide eyed with everything everything around us
We were enlightened by everything everything

/ = slide up
\ = slide down
h = hammer on
p = pull off

This took me long enough to tab. I am just so glad to finally be done and
know that I didn't rush through it.
I hope you enjoy this being up as much as I do.

Peace, Love, I'm out.

Great tab! I love this song, and you did it really well. A few things I noticed:
On the outro-chorus, the chord progression should be the same as in the verses. G D/F# F C
Also in the outro-chorus, it sounds better if you play
e|----7-----7---7-----5-----5---5-----8-----8---8-----8-----8---8-|
B|--8-----8---8-----7-----7---7-----10----10--10----8-----8---8---|

Its just a minor change, but worth noting. Thanks for the tab!
