Chorus/Break/Interlude/arpeggio section with the high vocals:

The arpeggio`s were too hard so I had to change it. Twice as fast as verse 

Do everything a whole bar, the upper and bottom note must be picked 4 times.

I've been looking through tabs for this song, trying to see if it's possible to find one that has the change in pitch
effect like the song. Great work on the tab, the drop C# tuning really does it.

Just a quick remark. I'm no expert on chord names, but isn't the Eaug an A chord? I'm just trying to work it out on piano, so I noticed that. The chord's fine, just I think the name's wrong.

Yeah, you`re right. Eaug is with a C, thanks, I`ll correct it soon.
