Tune down 1/2 step

I've no idea what the other tab of this song is, but it's not right.
Here's a pretty much 100% accurate version:

Play this through in order, following the instructions as you go.


[Intro]

           Look at your young men fighting...
Gb|------|-----------------------------------------------------|
Db|------|-----------------------------------------------------|
Ab|------|----7h9-7------------------9--7-7-7------------------|
Eb|-12/9-|-0---------3~-----------------------3-2-1-0~---------|
                                                                           ^^^^^^^
                                                                              Fast

Gb|------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|------------------------------------------------------------|
Eb|-3-2--0~-----3-3--0~-----3-2~----0-0--3-3-2-0-0---3-2~------|


[Verse]

    My hands are tied...   (heavily distorted guitars come in)
Gb|----------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------|
Ab|----------------------------------|
Eb|-5-55-5--5-55-5--5-55-5--5-55-5---|


Gb|----------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------|
Ab|----------------------------------|
Eb|-0-0-00-0-0-0--3-3p0-3-3-3-3-3-2--|

Gb|-------------------------------------------|
Db|-------------------------------------------|
Ab|-------------------5-5---------------------|
Eb|-0-0-00-0-0-0--3-3-----2-1-0--0-0-00-0-0-0-|
                          ^^^^^
                           Fast

Gb|----------------------------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------------------------|
Ab|-------------------------------------------5-5------|
Eb|-3-3p0-3-3-3-3-3-2--0-0-00-0-0-0-3-3-----5~---------|


Play this twice over the first guitar solo:

Gb|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|------------------------------------------------------------5-5-------|
Eb|-0-0-00-0-0-0--3-3p0--3-3-33-3-2--0-0-00-0-0-0--3-3-----2-1-0---------|

And end with:

Gb|------|
Db|------|
Ab|--5~--
Eb|------

There's no bass for a few bars at this point.  When Axl sings
"So I never fell for Vietnam...", play the following once:

Gb|-------------------------------------------------------------|
Db|-------------------------------------------------------------|
Ab|-----------2~----------------------------2~----------3-3-5-5-|
Eb|-3~-----------------0----0-----3~----------------0-----------|


[Chorus]

Play all of this twice:

Gb|--------------------------------------------|
Db|--------------------------------------------|
Ab|---------2--2-2--------7p6p5--7-7--7-7p6p5--|
Eb|-3--3-3----------0--------------------------|

Gb|--------------------------------------------|
Db|--------------------------------------------|
Ab|---------2--2-2----------3-3-5-5------------|
Eb|-3--3-3----------0-0-0----------------------|


Over Slash's second solo, play the chorus again twice, but replacing

Gb|---------              Gb|-------|
Db|---------              Db|-------|
Ab|-3-3-5-5-     with     Ab|-3---5-|
Eb|---------              Eb|-------|

And ending with this after the second repetition:

Gb|----
Db|----
Ab|----
Eb|-0~-

    Look at the blood we're spilling...
Gb|---------------------------------------------------|
Db|---------------------------------------------------|
Ab|-------------------------7h9-7---------------------|
Eb|-3----0----3--2----0-----------------3-2-0--3--2---|

Now play the verse once, then the chorus twice, followed by this
outro played four times:


[Outro]

Gb|----------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------|
Ab|---------2-2-2-2------------------|
Eb|-3-3-3-3---------0-00-0-00-0-0----|

Gb|----------------------------------|
Db|----------------------------------|
Ab|---------2-2-2-2---------3-3-5-5--|
Eb|-3-3-3-3---------0-00-0-----------|

And then end the song on:

Gb|-----|
Db|-----|
Ab|-----|
Eb|-3~--|
