All tabs are how I play the song.  I've tried to be as accurate as possible, but
some errors may be present.  Please contact me with any corrections.

All tabs assume some familiarity with the song.  In other words, I've laid out 
the riffs, and if you know the song, you should be able to figure out what riff goes
where, although I will try and lay the riffs out sequentially. 

There is some consideration for timing on these tabs.  Listen to the song for
the correct timing.  I'll do my best to try and space out notes based
on length.

Tuning: Standard

Intro (play lightly)              x2                                                 x2
