Band: Silverchair
Song: Without You
Album: Diorama

Retuning your guitar to open D tuning (DbAbDbAbDbDb) to properly play
this song can be such a hassle. So this tab is for all the Silverchair
fans who want to play this song accurately, but without the tedious task
of straining those guitar strings.

Drop D tuning (1/2 step down)

Symbols:

/ = Slide up
h = Hammer on
x = Mute string

Believe it or not, this is my first tab. Helpful comments are appreciated.
I pretty much know this song forwards and backwards. I've been wanting to
put this tab out for awhile now because I haven't seen a good version of
this song tabbed in standard tuning. And I know how much it sucks retuning
the guitar, so now you don't have to :-)
