Please rate and let me know if you have any corrections. Thank you.

One of my favorite songs off the whole album. To me it just sounds better in
Drop C#. So don't start over-posting me telling me its the wrong tuning!

*Updated on 2/3/10 - Fixed octaves in solo.

Very complete tab; five stars.

Why on earth did you tab it in drop C#? Rise Against usually plays in half step down, which is identical to your tuning except for the 6th string.

Also, I think there's a typo in solo section: for the octaves you have Gtr II doing, the notes should be three frets apart and not two. Take a look, unless you meant to do it that way.

Thanks for the rating and noticing that typo.

I tabbed it in drop C# because it sounds like it in the Bridge and the Outro. Not that I'm saying I KNOW it's in drop C#, just that it sounds better in it. Besides, it's no like they haven't done it before, just listen to the breakdown in "Rumors Of My Demise Have Been Greatly Exaggerated".

I'm not following your idea that it "sounds like" its in drop C#. Considering the speed and heavy distortion they use in this song, how can you tell the subtle differences of whether they're using the 5th or 6th string to make a given pitch?

And are you saying that when they play Rumors, they switch tunings? Or you think the whole song is in drop D? Hey it could be I suppose.
