Irregular groupings are notated above the duration line
Duration letters will always appear directly above the note/fret number it represents the
duration for.  Duration letters with no fret number below them represent rests.  Multi-
bar rests are notated in the form Wxn, where n is the number of bars to rest for.  Low
melody durations appear below the staff

i just saw these guys in concert last night and i was not expecting this one but it blew me away. Excellent tab of a wicked song, sounds just right! For the record though the words and music are by Michael Andrews, it's originally from the Donnie Darko soundtrack but Evergreen Terrace just covered it, listen to the original it's pretty sweet also!
