Hope that sounds good for you all. I do not take any credit for any of this work, 
just posted corrections. Most of the original tabs were crimson_addict and I just 
added what I felt were needed corrections. Enjoy! Feel free to comment addictions 
such as Josh's part along with even keyboard for guitar. Have fun!

Works well to me, thank you!

ps. @awisinger it's almost confusing to see how many Coheed fans like MCS as well, even though their musical styles are quite different. I believe they have no other kinds of connections neither.
