Take This Life, by In Flames from the album Come Clarity
I've been playing this for a while now and I think I have it right, so I shall share with you.
I've learned this from the lesson on the internet, and Schehf.
Please rate and comment!

Tuning is Dropped Bb low-to-high (Bb-F-Bb-Eb-G-C)
There is a ton of harmonizing so I guess guitar 1(top) is Bjorn (Lead) and guitar 
is Jesper (Rhythm)


Intro (Part 1):

Repeat verse (which is really just the intro.)
Pre-chorus (which is still probably wrong.)
Chorus
(Insert solo here)
(Insert interlude here)
Verse ONCE
Pre-chorus
Chorus
Intro/Verse=Outro

P.S. Sorry I couldn't figure out the melody to the chorus harmony, and I also don't know 
exact pre-chorus, and I don't know the Interlude either.
Hopefully someone will read my tab and just finish it so UG can have a perfect tab for this song.

Most of it seemed right. There were a few parts that sounded off, like the chorus, and intro part 2.

The chorus i can almost promise is wrong, but the intro is deffinetly right, its just harmonized. try recording one and playing the other.

theres a lesson on youtube and thats what they do. i just wish i could get the chorus right.

thanks though :]
