Once you get the hang of it, this song is really easy and sounds amazing. The main
tune is pretty much the same with some variations here and there. Please Rate & comment.

Then the up-key-(02:41)
This part is tricky; you really have to listen to follow along.
This part (and this part only) is spaced out so you can read it easier.

Good stuff, though there isn't asny reason this song should be in drop D

I do realise thats what their bassist always plays in, but this tab would work equally well in standard because I do realise there are people like me that hate tuning down to drop D, or half step down, etc .

The tab itself is pretty much perfect either way
