Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Open G (D G D G B d)

In order to keep things clean-looking in regard to tempo, I use symbol reduction (!)
and sometime substitution (@) to fit double digit fret numbers in with the beat. The
background guitars are all in a higher register so I only use (!) at the beginning 
instead of throughout the entire tab.

The use of effects and triple layered guitars is more than my ears know how to
comprehend. There's probably a few mistakes. The parts which use of a guitar slide
should be self-evident so I didn't bother distinguishing which parts are played with
a slide.

Comment or message any ideas or corrections. Please rate my tab. If you've got
problems with the tab, I'd encourage you to contact me with those problems so I
can fix the tab or provide advice for playing. Don't just give me a poor rating
and not give me any feedback. The idea is for us all to work together to create
a perfect finished product. This tab just represents the best I can do. It's
definitely up for peer review.

Key:
where # represents a fret number

#h# - hammer
#p# - pull
/ \ - slides, up and down respectively.
#b# - bend from normal note up to achieve bended note.
#r# - release bend from bended note to normal note.
#pb - bend up on # then attack and release
#b  - a slight bend a.k.a. a curl.
 @  - substitution. Helps to fit double digit fret numbers
      into the boxes while still clearly showing timing.
 !  - symbol reduction (0=10, 1=11, 2=12.....)
