Hey guys, first of all props to betasunlight for the original chord chart. 
I am submitting this with a couple of corrections and chords all the way 
through the song for app scrolling etc. This is how my band plays it, sounds pretty
good on the one guitar. Any suggestion or comments please let me know and I 
will check and change if necessary
Enjoy!

NOTES: Ok, we use a combination of open and modal chords for this song. The "heavy" 
or more rocky bits are open chords, and the lighter verse bits are modal chords. There is
an interlude bit I have also included that uses barre chords - The parts between B11 and 
Bm7 are hammered on, then slide into the C#m7 from the Bm7 ;).. 
listen the song and you'll get it!

Also in the Intro, try strumming the open D string only to get the same effect as the
record at the end of the intro progression. However at the outro, strum the full D chord
as this part on the record sounds fuller.

Pretty good tab. I'm not saying they're wrong but the interlude chords just don't fit into my ear right.
