alright, so this is an awesome song. I think it's safe to say that if you
found yourself here, you're pretty awesome too. this tab is laid out pretty
simply. some key notes:

*after the 4th repeat of [guitar 1 verse 1], add in the [guitar 1 verse 1
variation] then blend back into the original [guitar 1 verse 1] phrase, the
whole line is played 6 times in the beginning, with the variation making up
part of the 4th/5th repeat and the 5th/6th repeat heading into the [guitar 1
prechorus] phrase.. cool? play it out, you'll know what I'm sayin. It's hard
to explain. ;)

***************************************************************************
also, it's been brought to my attention that this tab may be discriminatory
towards peeps with small hands because of the uber large stretches in the
guitar 1 verse 1 / guitar 1 verse 1 variation and guitar 1 bridge/prechorus parts 1 and 2 phrases..
thus here's an alternate way (using the same notes and melody still) to
play those parts.. this should be easier for peeps with small hands and/or peeps who
are trying to avoid hand cramps:
