--STAIND - SAFE PLACE--

This is one of my two favorite Staind songs, this and The Bottom. The song is 
actually on a baritone guitar tuned to Ab-Eb-Bb-Db-Gb-Bb, but for the rest of us, 
this tab is just a half step down from Standard. Also, no one seemed to know what 
the weird sound was. I'm almost 100% sure that it's just Mike scraping the edge of 
his pick against the strings.
