Why do people keep rating this as three stars?! It's perfect, at least tell me what's wrong... and if the only thing wrong is that you have a tab for this song as well, then please be a fair competitant and do not burn down others work!

This is one of my favourite SOAD songs. Why is it only a B-Side?! Fantastic tab, man...
