ok, first off, I would like to say that I hadnt even looked any other tabs
before I tabbed this one and would like to congratulate the person with the
57-voted-on-5-star tab.  It looks a LOT like the way I tabbed it, but he
never finished it.  I have the full version here, and I did not copy
anything from anyone.  This is as close to 100% correct as this tuning is
gonna give it.  Complete with lyrics.

when all that we need is just a reaction is it too much to ask for when
there’s no attraction anymore?  if chasing our dreams is just a distraction
I want to remember who I know that I cant go by

Nice! It all works well, but it's still in the wrong tuning (I think) to the original... On the intro riff Fred definitely slides up to about the ninth fret at one point.

this is the wrong anyway so i'm not sure why you are so pleased with yourself. if you do it again but with the first note as (open on A and 2nd on B) strings you would of had it right. then you could play around with the neck and where you think whats his name plays it.
