Ok. This is my first tab, so bear with me. I started to tab out the song because I was
of searching for a better tab. I know I don’t have all the parts, and I know I’m not 100%
but I do have most of them written down on here at least. I’ll give credit where credit 
due. I thank nibbleschew and the others who wrote this tab before me.

Here’s the best I could come up with, but you’ll have to find out the timing by
I’m open to all suggestions to make this tab better. In fact, I encourage it.

Tuning: Standard Tuning

If you have Guitar Pro 5, I have a GP5 tab of the song that might help you a little bit. I'll email it to you or something (just PM me, I'm no longer giving my email or MSN info out freely). It also has the first half of one of the missing guitar solos.
