This is my first tab, so here goes :)

If anyone has any questions, do not hesitate to email me on asblewden@gmail.com.  I am 
sure the song is accurate, I tabbed it just by listening through over and over, though 
might be a few issues with a bit of the solo, say if you think there is (it might be ok :P)

I decided to tab this because I realised there wasn't a version of it on the site yet, 
of course it’s a great song.  Don’t be harsh, it took a few hours to do, and remember 
are all my own ideas, there are no other tabs yet to get tips off :D

This is tabbed for the lead guitar, I think there might be another, but this is the main 
 I put the lyrics in so it’s easier to follow.

Here it is, enjoy:

b=bend up
r=release bend
~=vibrato
/=slide up
\=slide down
*=trill
|TR--------|tremolo pick
|PM--------|palm mute
x=muffled string or note
h=hammer on
p=pull off

Note: For the bit above just play it by ear because it’s easy to pick up. Basically 
pick the 6th fret on the B string and hit the 8th and 9th frets from time to time.  He 
much hits the 8th and 9th frets randomly.

After a bit he does:
