Great tab bro. This song is really fun to play eh.

The 5th string is tuned to G, not A, and all notes as tabbed raised 2 frets to compensate. That gives you a proper 'C' open tuning - you'll hear its right straight away. It means you can play the main lick more loosely without fear of a bum note, and the ascending lick on 'take me on' is easier to play on one fret - i saw BRMC play last night, and that's definitely how Peter Hayes was doing it! Otherwise, great tab. :)
