Hooray! That's the end of that depressing song!

 / = slide up
 \ = slide down
 b = bend (to indicated frett)
pb = pre-bend (bend before striking)
 r = release bend
 ~ = vibrato
 X = string noise
() = mute (after striking)
 ^ = harmonic (if there were any :( but you can add some)

This post is to fill that gap where there is no song. I could hardly play it
so I know something's wrong. Someone should consider re-doing this whole thing.
I wrote it on four hours of sleep and I'm feelin' a little woozy. Cheers!

good tab, but:
1)I take it this is the live version of the song - this version, in particular: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1C3wkq_FOQY
since it's missing the high melody.

2)I think chorus is quite difficult to figure out and your tab seems a bit off - what with all the effects, but what I got from watching a cover version - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3js483Fq-KQ is this:

Number of strums of not accurate. I think a second guitar probably plays more stardard chords - it's hard to tell. This should be the jist of it though.

Hope this helps.
