Forty Foot Echo - Save Me (drop D)
tabbed by Tangalicious
izaac_tang@yahoo.com

More accurate and easier to play.  Thanks to a sharp ear by Matt Kernen
for the heads up on making the chorus more accurate.  Thanks again to
Forty Foot Echo for making such a good song!

I made a slight mistake on the chorus, it should only be played once instead of X3 as I marked on these parts:

E ------------------------------------
B ------------------------------------
G --7-xx-7-7-------4-xx-4-4-----------
D --7-xx-7-7---7---4-xx-4-4---5-xx-5-5
A --5-xx-5-5---7---2-xx-2-2---5-xx-5-5
E --5-xx-5-5---5--------------3-xx-3-3

The last chorus should be played X3 instead of X7 as well.

At the 0:35 mark, Guitar 2 should be playing power chord G instead of A:

I made another one in drop D which is MUCH more accurate on the chorus and solo parts, and fixed other little bits as well. Hopefully it will be up soon, so people don't have to get confused with this one.
