Song: Requiem (The Fifth)
Artist: Trans-Siberian Orchestra
Album: Beethoven's Last Night


Time: 4/4
Tempo: 140 (I'm not 100% sure. You can experiment with the tempo.)
Tuning: Drop D (Not needed, but Drop D makes the Rhythm arrangement easier.)


*UPDATES*
Original Version: Only contained fret numbers and very unorganized.
Ver. 2.0: Greatly cleaned up the tab, assigned rhythms to fret numbers.
Ver. 2.1: Added misc. details (i.e. Song/Artist/Album; Time/Tempo; etc.).
Ver. 2.2: Went through a final time and ripped out anything unneeded.
Ver. 2.3: Added time 'n'-time 'n' for sections
Ver. 2.4: Fully completed. Every detail put in its correct place.

Gtr I (D A D G B e) - Lead
Gtr II (D A D G B e) - Rhythm

That's it.... I apologize if it's hard to understand.
It's a simple song for beginners, and a favorite of mine....

Also, I wish to assure you, this WAS NOT taken from a tab book or another site. 
Regardless of it's details, this was all of my work.
So please don't comment saying that it's plagiarized.
