Tuning

hey guys! This is my first tab posted.
This is the acoustic version of the song. Though they don't have any official 
acoustic version yet,
this is how i see and hear them play it in their videos
(live acoustic performances). Not sure if it's a hundred% correct,
but for 90+% maybe it does! Hope you like it though!^^ Enjoy!

The tuning is all flat by the way. That's how they do it live for now.
For LEAD GUITAR TAB just scroll down through the page.

lead intro at least is perfect cept you need to tune a half step down to match the acoustic version on smile kid. either that or you could just move your tabs down one fret. otherwise great tab
