                         Rescue Me - Tokio Hotel
-----------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: Karleen Heong
Email: the_aurora_australis@hotmail.com

Tuning: CFA#D#GC (thickest to thinnest)
        Same as standard tuning except down 2 steps

An absolutely beautiful song by a German band. Heard this on radio
very recently and thought I'd tab it out, complete with all guitars.
I believe this song also goes under the name 'Rette Mich'. Must 
tune guitars down 2 steps to play with recording, otherwise standard 
tuning also works. This is definitely worth learning, enjoy!

The end! I didn't put in the piano bits (there's not much) but all 
the guitar parts should be there. If you like, you can omit the third 
guitar. Please rate and comment - suggestions will be appreciated
Thanks for viewing!
