+ means palm mute

UPDATE: Changed intro (thx to BodaciousBob)
UPDATE: Changed Post-chorus, Verse, interlude 1, and outro(thx to Captsaw)
UPDATE: Changed Pre-chorus, Post-chorus, Interlude 1, Interlude 2 and Outro
UPDATE: made slight changes to the post-chorus
UPDATE: HUGE thanks to simo030595 with both the solos
UPDATE: made slight changes to the verse and Interlude 1

NOTE: I don’t care if the intro is bass, the song is in standard, or if you drop down a
step, this is the way I tabbed it so live with it.
NOTE: please rate/re-rate this tab highly (5 stars) because i have made some MAJOR
to it now and i think it sounds really good

I don't think that octave d is there in the last part of the intro. To me it sounds like this:
e|--------------------------------|
b|--------------------------------|
g|--------------------------------|x4
d|----0--5-6-5-----0-5---------5--|

Needs solos.

Good tab other than that.
