About this tab version
After using both the Tab Pro version and the highest rated version on the site, I have found multiple improvements that can be made, and also I found that both tabs lack completion in certain areas. I feel my version is also easier access as the highest 'tab' uses chord notation for the majority, and not everyone has access to the tab pro service. Was this info helpful? Yes No

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Rory H
E-mail: rdeh10@googlemail.com

Tuning: EADGBe

Recently I've been really into this song, noticed the tab pro and highest rated version on the site were
incomplete or inaccurate in spots. I decided to fill in the gaps and correct where I felt necessary! Enjoy!

Notes: Notes in square brackets indicate a bend being held and played at those notes 
       A further symbol key is at the bottom of the page
       Any corrections/improvements, please leave a comment or email me, thanks!
