Song: Stockholm Syndrome
Album: Absolution (2003)

The main was correct. Now, the only reason I'm about to get picky is simply because of the amount of other CORRECT versions of this tab.

The harmonics were right, but the pattern in which they are played was incorrect. The verse chords were incorrect, for the most part. There were also several smaller errors throughout the tab. As well, the solo is completely incorrect. Perhaps take a listen to Stockholm Syndrome and listen? Or perhaps a live video even?

3 stars, anyways.
