I think this song rules! :D The album ain't out yet, and I can't wait to get it! :D

Okay, I've seen lotsa tabs for this song on this site, and noticed none of them are in 
tuning, so I decided to tab it out for those who just can't be arsed to tune to drop C 
me)

I know this isn't correct.. It's for standard tuning, I did it myself.. etc etc..

THIS IS TRANSCRIBED FOR ONE GUITAR ONLY! (So you idiots don't try to moan 'ooh but 
have two guitariissttss'
..I know, I just can't be arsed to put down two guitars :p)

Tuning: Standard (E.A.D.G.B.e -- Low to High)

Intro - Use Clean, maybe some reverb/delay.. Add some chorus to make it sound good,
Not sure what's going on here, but I came out with this..

Solo - This wasn't that tricky to figure out.. and it isn't tricky to play, once you've 
which frets you have to move to..
Sorry but I suck at tabbing timings.. so the amount of times
the notes are played are probably wrong.. Good luck :)

This is good, i would have thought that its in a lower tuning you know... because the chorus sounds much heavier then you have tabbed it, but all in all pretty good job =] Check out my version 1.

Yeah... I know the proper way to play the chorus is on a different octave, as you had tabbed (in Drop C) But i'm a lazy guitarist and so i'll try to find any opportunity to not have to tune down all the strings like that.. So I decided lets make a tab in Standard Tuning, 'cause i'm sure I can't be the only one too lazy to tune to Drop C..

...right? :p

Yeah, thanks for the comment! And i'm pretty sure yours is pretty much 100%, and I know mine isn't :D But y'know.. Heh..

Well, everything is great... i just dont agree with the chorus, that is the only flaw on this tab... yeah there is always someone who does a heavy tab in E and you sir have done rather well =]

Nah mine isnt 100% needs some work actually...
