Hey guys, I wasn't able to find a decent tab for this song (just chords) so I thought
I'd make one myself. I did it almost completely by ear because I also couldn't find any
videos of Matsson playing it live, but I think it sounds right even if it's not exactly 
how he plays it. Above the bars I added the chords I use when playing it to help as well.

PS: This is also my first tab so be gentle :)

^ between notes means hammer-on              ||:    :|| means repeat what’s in between


4/4 Time – Each dash is a sixteenth note
130-135 bpm

Standard Tuning (EADGBe)
Capo 6
