8va play an octave higher, why'd you include it if you didn't know what it meant? good tab though.

Yes 8va mean play an octave higher, you must bee looking in a tab book o.0 even though this song doesnt do that at any point in it. For example if you were playing middle c on piano and 8va was on there you would play the next c up the keyboard. Still quite random chucking it in there. But any way, it sort of sounds like the song but not quite. :P I'll taqb a better one before the end of next week.

This song is awsome. The Pre Chorus and Chorus sound wierd though, even when I'm playing with heavy distortion
