The main guitar in this song is in Open D6 Tuning which means the six guitar strings, 
lowest pitch to highest, should be tuned like this: D A D F♯ B D.

So take your Low E and High E then drop them a whole step. After that drop your G a half step.

This song has some beautiful sounding guitar parts so I decided to do a tab for it.

Be prepared to use your thumb to play some of these chords though.

On the Intro and the Bridge I didn't notate the rhythm, just the chords. So listen 
to the song for that.

OK so here we go!

v = Down stroke
^ = Up stroke

D |--0------0------|
B |--0------0------|
D |--2------3------|

Throw in some 0's on the low D string here too like the bass part is doing.

The end is Main Guitar Parts one and two, but the last chord goes like this.

OK from that you should be able to figure out how it goes.


EDIT: Thanks to hendrixfreak93 for the correction on the tuning, it should be in 
Open D6, not Open D.

I think all you need is the little lead part, other than that this is fantastic. Thanks so much!

Actually I just figured out that this song should be in DADF#BD, it's loads easier to play. So the main chord would switch from 004342 to 004322. And the beginning chord, tons easier. 222120 to 222100. And the crescendo is probably the biggest benefit if you leave the B string the same, but I'll let you experiment with it.

You know, I think that actually might be it.

That works a lot better. Thanks.
