did whoever tabbed this even listen to the song first? tuning should be in dropped D not regular and the ending is a lot faster, it seems like a large bit of the tab has been missed out. This is useless!! have u even heard the song?

Nightwish doesn't use Drop D tuning... they use standard or 1 step down
