About this tab version
The vocal melody, played on the high strings. Was this info helpful? Yes No
So this is just the melody part of the song, since nobody has done it yet. 
If you want to play an octave lower just move everything from the high e to the D string
(and from the B to the A) and add 2 to every fret.

Some of the F#s (2nd fret on the high e) might be better off played on the 7th fret of the B.

why on earth would you tab this out with the F#s on the high e instead of the b string? incredibly silly thing to do, man.

ronanjmc 51 May 02, 2017 05:03 PM

Yeah, I agree, it doesn't make a lot of sense in terms of actually playing it, but I find it easier to remember the notes like this and not a whole lot harder to play. It's not too difficult to convert all of the high e F#s to the b either, if you wanted to.

i strongly recommend tabbing it out using all strings but in one position is it even possible to play it easily running on 1 string ?
