                                  ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Tabbed by: Connor O.
Tuning: Standard


There are two layered guitars. There is a lead with a mild amount of fuzz on it. The 2nd
guitar, which is pretty fuzzy and has tremolo and echo, plays the two solos and random little
fills throughout the song. I'll tab the lead and the solos as best I can. During the
solos, the main riff keeps playing.

Everything except the two solos and Verse #2 are played with an A string bassline. ~112 bpm.

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.

Correction, I think that 2/4/6/4/2 on the b string with a 4p2 on the g string is actually one string lower for both. Awesome tab btw. Thanks!
