-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Tabbed by: mka12992

Tuning: Half-step down

This tab may be a bit tricky to follow at first, but shouldn't be too challenging 
if you know the song.

I just got back into this band, and took a look at previous tabs - complete GARBAGE. This one is basically exactly how I figured it out. Good job on the great tab. Its a shame that so many users have gotten suckered by that version 1 just because it has 5 stars. How could no one realize this song is a half step down?

Good basis for the song.

The 12p-0 played by guitar 2 should be 11p-0 though.
