intro - it's best if you press the last note, the 4 on the A string, with your middle
 it sets you up for the hand position of the tapping in the verses.  the last note of this
on the same beat as the first note of the verse.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------|

tapping riff one - all tapping--every note is played with the pointer finger of the
hand.  pay attention to which notes are hammered-on/pulled off, and which are simply
 it's best if the root chord, 4-2-4, is held middle finger, pointer finger, and ring 
respectively, becuase in the second tapping riff the pinky needs to be open to press 5 on the
string.

one mistake. in "tapping riff one", wherever you see a 13 on the A string, replace it with a 14. i just saw 13 elsewhere on the tab and made the mistake.

Such a good song! Nice tab! I just wish someone would tab the bass (right). This is great though, thanks!
