Tuning: STANDARD

I heard this song on the radio just this week and I thought wow this is too amazing.
better yet I found that it was amazingly simple.  I will have the whole song tabbed out
for now I have most of it. Just not the second guitar in the choruses yet.  Check back
for that.

Intro
=====

The 1st time after playing the C play the octaved F power chord up on the eighth fret.
2nd time after playing the C play the full F power Chord on the first fret.

                                              1st time               2nd time

Verses
======

Guitars 1 + 2
Clean tone, w/ delay and reverb (both guitars) (using my gibson les paul with standard
I found playing with the neck pickup selected brought the closest tone to Trapt.)  Guitar
plays the following during the whole verse in both verses.  Guitar two switches to a
overdrive midway through, and I just lay back on the volume and stay in the neck
and let the delay do its thing.

Guitar 2 (overdrive pt.)  I tabbed it out for what you would play when the delay is added.

                                                      Both guitars at the end of the
play a G pwrchrd.
